One of the most unique wedding dresses.I love the sleeves and the medieval feel to it.Here is a sketch of it in this story.

I don't know if anyone has seen the BBC/PBS special on Royal Weddings. It basically details royal weddings of the BRF and how they have changed with the times. I missed the first portion (where I believe they dealt with Princess Elizabeth's and maybe Princess Margaret's wedding) but I did catch the piece on Princess Anne.They talked about the economic times and the usual about the dress, members of the BRF, etc.

What I found interesting was that they also spoke with members of the Royal Band...they talked to this one guy who basically talked about them playing when the Queen walked in and how he thought it was the best they had every played (as they play the Overture I believe). Than this other guy comes in (maybe the choir director or someone) and he is like why did you play the song. The guy said, well you okay (maybe it was the code word for them to start the Queen's Song when she came in). And the choir director was like NO, I just asked if you guys were Okay!

So the basically played the song , and the Queen hadn't even arrived at the Abbey yet. So I had a little chuckle (yes, it doesn't take much for me). And of course the guy said when the Queen did arrive, they played it again and in his opinion not so well the second time.

It was nice to see snippets of Anne and Mark's wedding. They both looked extremely happy and she was a beautiful bride.

I think Anne's dress looks better in person than it does on paper. It is a unique dress and I rather like it, though it isn't my favorite. At the time of the wedding what was the general feeling about the dress?

Oh, she looks so pretty! thank you for these great family photos. I do remember when they got married.

BBC Documentary


I am a researcher for the BBC and I'm trying to track down some home movie footage of the 1973 Royal Wedding between Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips. It is for a series about life in Britain during the 1970s.

I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about where to find some or knows of anyone who filmed the celebrations - either in London or in towns and villages across the UK.

Many thanks,

Until recently I had only seen still shots of Ann's dress and thought it was of heavy satin. But in a retrospective of the Queen's 6 decades there was a marvellous shot of her before she left for the Abbey and the skirt and sleeves had the most wonderful, almost sinuous, movement and when she walked down the aisle it shimmered and made her look every bit a Princess. She moved right up on my list of favorite royal wedding dresses.

Anne looked lovely. Almost, never looked, better. Too bad the marriage was not that enduring.

I remember getting up early before school to watch this. I loved the dress then, and love it even more now. Except for the sleeves, it really is a timeless classic.

It was nice wedding but I think Anne & Mark was rather a stiff and formal couple. I'm not sure Mark was all that comfortable in royal life.

The ceremony was watched by an estimated 500 million television viewers around the world.

In Royal Romances, it was written:

Even by the beginning of October, no final decision on the style of the wedding dress had been taken but perhaps this was wise because it made the likelihood of 'industrial espionage' far less. Like most brides, the Princess wanted the dress to remain a secret until the great day.
