A newsreel depicting the 1923 royal wedding shows that even though it's been almost a century since the Queen Mother married, many of the traditions in Friday's ceremony remained the same.

The wedding, which was the marriage of the Duke of York to Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, features a number of similarities, including an appearance by the newlyweds on the Buckingham Palace balcony in front of an adoring crowd.

The Duke of York, also known as King George VI, was the subject of "The King's Speech," the 2011 winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture. Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon eventually became Queen Elizabeth, a title she held until her husband's death in 1952.

What's different about this wedding? What's the same? Watch the video below:
