Its somehow hard to fathom in this day of instant information but back then, those Pathe newsreels were what people would see when they went to a movie theater. Makes me realize how far we've some in such a relatively short time.
All the elements of a royal wedding were there. The crowds, the pageantry and the appearance on the balcony. Traditions are really a wonderful thing.
Thanks for posting the video of this wedding.
