The gown, which was a gift to her from the states of Flanders, was
made by orphans in Ghent. Out of gratitude for this expensive present,

Isle of Man 2000 # The wedding of Prince Albert, Duke of York, and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon
took place on 26 April 1923 at Westminster Abbey. The veil, loaned to the
bride by her future mother-in-law, Queen Mary, was made of Flanders lace.
Also a strip of Brussels lace, inserted in the dress, was a Strathmore family
heirloom. A female ancestor of the bride had worn it to a grand ball for
"Bonnie Prince Charlie".
