British Royal Weddings Of The 20th Century
Throughout the twentieth century, Royal Weddings were events of majestic splendor. People would camp out overnight in the streets of London to get a prime location for the procession the next day. They would gather in their thousands to garner a glimpse of the newly married couple on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Street parties were held up and down the country in celebration - the extravagance, the splendor, the sheer pomp and pageantry all combined to make for extraordinary scenes of patriotic pride and national unity.
