The Happy Newlyweds Head for Bermuda

Bob and Buffy (Elizabeth II) were married December 9, 1950.  Here they are in NYC on April 8, 1951,  about to board a flight to Bermuda.  Whether it is a delayed honeymoon or a nifty way to celebrate four months of marriage, they are obviously happy to be together and on the way to warmer climes. 

To think of the brouhaha that surrounded Bob's divorce from the perspective of today's lackadaisical approach to marriage itself ... well, times have changed a tad.  Whatever, the two were together until his death in 1981, a 30-year marriage of two people obviously in love, with each other and the great life they had together.
