By  | 7 years ago

The wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine Middleton that took place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London, England was truly magical and historical event not only for the royal couple, but for many people around the globe. The royal wedding was watched by around 2 billion of people in 180 countries around the world. It was covered by more than 8,500 journalists in London alone. It helped Britain have its best ever year for tourism in 2011.

The wedding photos of the royal couple are quickly posted online right after their wedding ceremony, something that didn’t happen at the “Wedding of the Century” of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Only few of their wedding photos are seen by the public and majority of them are just the same old version.

But today, we will be able to see never before seen photographs from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding that took place on July 29, 1981. Some of these rare photographs are posted below.
