SPECIAL SOUVENIR EDITIONS OF

THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS 1873-1981

by Robin S. Hunt and John Weedy

PART THREE - 1922-1950

For over a Century the Illustrated London News has issued special souvenir editions for special events. In this, the third of four articles, we record these publications which make a fascinating catalogue of British and Foreign history.

Records show that the first wedding of an English King’s daughter in Westminster Abbey was that of Princess Mary and Viscount Lascelles on February 28th 1922. Princess Mary, the only daughter of the King and Queen, was born on April 25th 1897, (Queen Victoria’s “dear little Diamond Jubilee baby”), and Henry George Charles, Viscount Lascelles, elder son of the Earl and Countess of Harewood was born on September 19th, 1882.
