The Royal Wedding Video of 1923 — betcha didn’t know that they had videos back then!
As the year suggests, this is the wedding of King George VI and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, Queen Elizabeth II’s future parents, as incarnated by Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter in ‘The King’s Speech’. But this is all with the benefit of hindsight: as far as the Topical Film Company was concerned, they were filming the wedding of the Duke of York, second son of King George V – though they still treated it as a major media event, with nineteen cameramen filming the proceedings from numerous angles.
Moving along in the 20th century, here you can watch the wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip in 1947:
The wedding of the century, Charles and Diana’s marriage, was viewed live by three-quarters of a billion people in 1981.
What part of the Royal Wedding of 2011 are you most looking forward to seeing? Will it be the bride’s much anticipated wedding gown? Are you anxious to see William and Kate walk down the aisle? Does the wardrobe of Her Majesty the Queen interest you? What about the dancing at the party of the century — that should be fun to watch! Personally, I can’t wait to see the bride and groom’s expressions at the ceremony — will they keep a straight, solemn expression on their faces, or will they sneak a smile and a wink at one another? There’s not that much more time to wait — the 21st century’s Royal Wedding will be here before you know it!
The Royal Wedding – In Wool! This video is just too cute for words; someone actually went ahead and knitted the entire bridal party — and now you can watch them all walk down the aisle and dance!
