Princess Mary Astor would prefer to elope with Anthony Bushell, an aide to her father, than honor the arranged marriage to a crown prince that her mother has cooked up.

Thanks. Yes, I think the name of the original stage play was The Queen's Husband and the focus was more on the mother controlling the father, including how she's arranged the upcoming marriage of their daughter. But the film version focuses more on the daughter, played by Mary Astor.
