Kathleen and Robert Scott [1]

In a widely-reported function at the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace, Scott married Kathleen Bruce.

"Huge crowds gathered as Captain and Mrs Scott left by motor car for London and then France," the Daily Mirror wrote. "The marriage," noted the Times, "will make no difference to Capt. Scott's future plans with regard to Antarctic exploration." [2]
