34 years on: Charles and Diana's fairytale wedding

34 years ago, on July 29th 1981, Prince Charles and his young bride, Lady Diana Spencer, walked down the aisle of St Paul's Cathedral into the pages of history.

It was heralded as a fairy tale wedding across the world; a handsome Prince, and beautiful young bride and the well wishes of thousands behind them.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 34 years since Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer made their way down the aisle on their wedding day on July 29, 1981.
Diana wore a wedding dress of ivory silk, threaded with more than 10,000 pearls and sequins, with a train measuring 25-feet, whilst her groom wore a sharp naval commander uniform with a chesftul of badges, pins and sashes.
Charles and Diana’s wedding was attended by over 3,500 wedding guests, with attendees hailing from 25 international kingdoms, including 8 Kings, 12 Queens, 26 Princes and 29 Princesses.
Their wedding was televised to more than 750 million people worldwide, with another 600,000 watching from the streets.
