Tatler front cover of Duchess of Kent in her wedding gown

H.R.H The Duchess of Kent, formerly Princess Marina of Greece, pictured in her wedding dress of white and silver floral brocade designed by Captain Edward Molyneux. She achieved the distinction of being the first royal bride to wear a streamlined wedding dress, which swept from the shoulders in a curve to the train at the back of the dress. The waistline was eliminated because it would have interrupted the curve, with the high draped neckline and long, widening sleeves with cuffs of silver lame adding to the effect. Date: 1934
