Due to the death of the Duke of Buccleuch, "all arrangements for the state wedding" for the Duke's daughter, Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott, to the Duke of Gloucester, third son of King George V and Queen Mary, have been canceled, according to press reports.
Only members of the British royal family and Lady Alice's relatives will attend a private ceremony at Buckingham Palace on November 6. The wedding had been scheduled to take place at Westminster Abbey.
Men will now wear morning dress, and not "brilliant uniforms."
