Product description

The Wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Lt. Philip Mountbatten: Souvenir Programme (1947)
 
This original vintage commemorative booklet - published "By Gracious Permission of His Majesty the King" for the Council of King George's Jubilee Trust, to commemorate the marriage of the present Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip (20 November 1947) - includes a poem "Prayer for the Royal Marriage" by Poet Laureate John Masefield, biographies of the bride and groom, and the order of service with a "general outline of the Procession" (the details had not been finalised at the time of going to press), together with various black and white photographs.
 
Although the booklet shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage ephemera or British royal memorabilia.
