Lead disc ID help please.

Hi everyone, I found this earlier today, and was hoping someone could help me with some info about what exactly it is, the date appears to be 1893. And I can make out ‘duke of York’ but that’s about it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. 👍

I claim no credit - it's not that difficult if the photo is the right way up! The words commemorative, marriage, Duke of York, Princess Ma... and July 6th 1893 give more than sufficient clues ::g

Interesting find - nice to see something different :D

Hope you don’t mind but I’ve turned the photos round for you, so it’s easier to read ::g
