An Act to make provision for the payment of certain
Most Gracious Sovereign,
THEREAS Your Majesty has been graciously pleased to signify to your faithful Commons in Parliament assembled Your Majesty's desire that provision should be made for Their Royal Highnesses the Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh on the occasion of their marriage:
And whereas Your Majesty has further been graciously pleased to signify that, being anxious that such provision should be made in such a way as not to impose a burden on your people at this present time when they are faced with grave economic difficulties, Your Majesty was willing to place at the disposal of Your faithful Commons a sum derived from the savings on the Civil List made during the war years, with the intent that such provision should, for a period, impose no additional charge on public funds, and that Your Majesty has, to that end, commanded that a sum of one hundred thousand pounds so derived be transferred to the Consolidated Fund on the passing of this Act:
Now, therefore, we, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom in Parliament assembled do most humbly beseech Your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted by the King's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows :—
1.—(1) There shall be paid to Her Royal Highness the Princess Provision for Elizabeth during her life the yearly sum of twenty-five thousand Her Royal pounds, to commence from the day of her marriage with His Highness the Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
