Royal Weddings That Shaped the Monarchy

The Daily Mail gives us a look back at past Royal Weddings including Queen Elizbeth's.The New York Times described it (the Queen's wedding)as ‘this welcome occasion for gaiety in grim England, beset in peace with troubles almost as burdensome as those of the war’.

Princess Margaret's wedding ushered in the era of TV. From the Daily Mail:

The following year, the whole world knew and thus began one of the great royal romances of all time.

By the time Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones married in 1960 — at the Abbey, of course — the television age had begun.

A record 20 million British people watched the bride arrive in the stunning Poltimore tiara (a feast of diamonds originally made for a certain Lady Poltimore) and a dress partly designed by the groom. Thousands more had camped overnight on London’s streets.
