Princess Mary Wedded to Viscount Lascelles at Westminster Abbey
Newsreel of the lavish royal marriage, which was probably the biggest British newsreel story of the decade.
Princess Mary, the Princess Royal (1897-1965) was the only daughter of King George V and Queen Mary and the sister of Princes Edward and Albert, later Edward VIII and George VI (of King's Speech fame). Her marriage to Viscount Lascelles, 6th Earl of Harewood, was probably the biggest British newsreel story of the decade. For this film Topical Budget employed fifteen cameramen along the route, paying in excess of £75,000 in today's money for the best camera positions.
