The bride- groom, Lieutenant Philip Mount- batten of tho royal navy and former prince of Grerce, is now "his royal highness" and a duke, earl and baron. King George VI knight- ed him yesterday. Queen Mother Mary saw her granddaughter married. Absent from Die ceremony were the Duka of Windsor, whose abdication, brought Elizabeth's father to tho throne and made her heiress pre- sumptive, and the American-born, twice-divorced duchess. Brief patches of blue sky appear- ed as the wedding began, aftar an. early morning drizzle. Traditional Spoken The Archbishop of Canterbury, primato of all England, intoned the words: "I now pronounce that they arc man and wife" at a. m. a. m. as the and Broom, knelt before the altar in Westminster abbey. In tho traditional words of Church of England marriage ice, Princess Elizabeth and the dulu promised to love and to cherish, each other for better or for worse. in sickness and In health until death. Their responsive "I wills" to the J archbishop's questions barely audible in the crowded abbey. The marriage lines of the princess, which she repeated in a voice al- most inaudible at times, contained tho promise "to love, cherish, and to obey" her new husband. The duke's marriage lines, repeated In a deep, clear voice, used only the words: "To Jove and to cherish." omitting tho word obey. Cheers Drown Bells As tile two left tile abbey, church bells rang out, only to be drowned in the welcoming roar of the wait- ing thousands outside. Prime Minister Attlea and predecessor, Winston Churchill, smiled at the young couple as they passed up the aisle after signing tha marriage register in the chapel of St. Edward the Confessor, founder of tho abbey. On the way back to the palace, both the princess and the duke who received his royal title from King Gcorgo VT, last night, waved at the throngs of people along the Many of them had waited all night and been soaked In an Intermittent drizzle. Ceremony Broadcavt Kneeling on pillows on the of the red and gold sanctuary, royal couple followed the Arch- jishop of Canterbury, Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, through the traditional marriage ceremony of the Church, of England. As Phillip and the princess spoke Jieir responsive "I wills" and re- peated their vows to love, honor and comfort each other in sickness and in health forever, their voices were broadcast to a listening world.

Kinship Remote Actually they stand between sec- ond and third "rela- tively remote" blood kinship which has linked many partners In royal marriage in Europe in the past. The ceremony was packed with the ancient symbolism of a thousand years of English history. It light- ened, somewhat, the hearts of princess' millions of future subjects, adding a splash of color and ro- mance to a national life which has become progressively more dreary since the legions of Hitler first threatened Britain. Throughout the country, in every town and village and farmhouse and upon the high seas, millions of loyal Britons rejoiced, not thinking of tho ceremony as something to be shared only by those comparative- ly few who witnessed it. .Radio and television provided a personal link between the princess and many of her people.
