Inside the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana

A retrospective look back at the wedding of the century.

By Jess Pullar

Before Harry and Meghan, before Wills and Kate, indeed even before the Princes' and their spouses existed, there was another royal wedding that turned heads the world over.

An estimated 750 million people tuned into watch the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and it's fair to say they were not disappointed.

There were thousands of flowers, enough white tulle to make several 80s-styled wedding gowns, a tiara fit for a princess and, of course, the couple everyone wanted to see.

While we all know the sad ending that eventuated from their relationship, there's no denying the wedding was a memorable sight to behold.

Now, as Prince Charles reaches his 70th birthday - a big milestone for the Prince who has led a colourful life - what better time than the present to take a wander down memory lane and enjoy the best moments from his and Diana's 1981 royal wedding.

Grab a cuppa, sit back and keep scrolling as we relive their 80s wedding in all its glory.
