"In Dean Stanley's time there were some !>ig weddings, but they could not be comoared to this one. I' remember distinctly the marriage of.Lady Peggy Primrose to Lord Crewe, and the ceremony when Lord Salisbury's daughter was married; but Lady Patricia Ramsay's wedding will be si lasting niemory. Tt was more like a Coronation. The <\bl>ev has seating accommodation for 3000 people. The'place was packed, and for the/first time in riiy recollection the gallery known as the triforium wa« vised. Since tbe wedding we have b^en busier than /ever showing visitors the altar where the Princess sacrificed her title for love."
