Duke of York: Marriage Proposal

"The Duke of York's courtship of the Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon had its difficulties. Hopelessly tongue-tied, at the critical moment he sent a friend to propose for him. Lady Elizabeth replied, 'No, not until he comes and asks himself.'

"The Duke set himself to it. Once more speech failed. Pulling a scrap of paper from his pocket, he proposed in writing."
