In the top photo, I believe the woman on the left is Mrs. Kevin White, correct? (So I'm archaic, I don't recall her name). Is the man with the mustache Sal DiMaisi? Looks like him at that age? In the bottom photo, the woman on the right next to Prince Philip is ????? not Mrs. White I think. Mrs. White's hat is visible there on the left.

The woman to the right of Prince Philip is ... Kitty Dukakis.

Check out this photo taken on June 29, 1976, where Kitty is wearing the same outfit.

In the top photo, I was thinking the man in the middle behind Mayor White was (then) Lieutenant Governor Thomas P. O'Neill III, although his hair in that photo looks grey / blond whereas O'Neill's hair was black (and, longer?) at the time, I think.
