On the day of the wedding, many children were invited to watch the procession at the home of Baroness Angela Burdett-Coutts, a notable philanthropist and one of the richest women in Britain at the time. All were presented with hand-made wedding favours like this one. They would have had an excellent view from her house in Stratton Street, overlooking Piccadilly.
