On Her Wedding Day, Queen Elizabeth II Almost Forgot To Wear Her Royal Necklaces
December 20, 2017
Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-serving British monarch till date. Her reign has been celebrated as perhaps one of the most eventful. One of the most memorable events of her life is her wedding to the sterling Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten.
It was a drizzly day in November of 1947. And the day was far from ordinary. It had been a while since a royal wedding took place at Westminster Abbey and the whole of England was buzzing with excitement.
The Royal engagement had been announced earlier in July that same year and many people were eagerly looking forward to the event. Today especially, many people waited in the mall, defying the weather, all to catch a glimpse of the Princess before the ceremony. And they were not disappointed.
