Brides-to-be sacrificed their gowns so the Princess bride could have a better one

November 24, 2014

According to Hello Magazine:

Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary on Thursday

…the pair have seen the country go through many changes in their 67 years of marriage.

In 1947, rationing was still in place when Elizabeth and Philip’s nuptials took place two years after WWII had finished. Ahead of the wedding, excited brides-to-be from around the country sent the Princess extra coupons so she would be able to have her perfect gown.

However, she returned all the coupons following protocol and was allowed an extra 200 by the Government.
