I don't mind a public kiss. It's just that, until the turn of the 20th century, most royal marriages were rather private events, not the great spectacles that we've beco)e accustomed to. So it wasn't really necessary to have a kiss (just think of Prinny and Princess Caroline attempting a public kiss!!). But you can't really say the kiss has been traditional until recently.

If Kate and Wm get married, I would expect a kiss--and probably one from the exuberant Prince Harry. It's probably a new tradition that's here to stay.

The photos are beautiful, I can't have my eyes glued on the wedding photos!!!
The wedding was a fairy-tale...
Thank you very much, Maryamj!

Charles & Diana: The Fairytale Ends - Photo Gallery, 35 Pictures - LIFE

Diana's wedding dress looks like a fairy tale, which comes true one day.
Her wedding dress is displayed in the Philadelphia nowaday, the name of the exhibition is "People's Princess".

Here are two photos of Hola magazine from the exhibition:

I'm sorry that I don't have the source material at hand, but Sophie and Edward were supposed to have kissed when they went to sign the registers off-camera after their vows.

Thanks!
I strongly disagree!

Diana's weddingdress was a disaster, probably the worst weddingdress in history. Crinkled, overdone, overdecorated....A complete designer disaster, I would have sued the Emanuels.

I guess you haven't seen Mabel's dress then!
Diana's dress was a disaster by today's standards, it resembles a huge wedding cake, and not very appetizing one too.
However, I still think Diana looked lovely on her wedding day: she resembled a doll dressed up like a Princess in a huge puffy dress with a tiara. And she was glowing.
The dress was overwhelming, yes, but it was still fairytale too.

Well, in some way I agree. Maybe Marsel's post reflects my feelings the best. Diana's wedding dress' style isn't really what I like or prefer as usual (and I especially hate the fashion of the 80ies as well! ). But a few months ago I watched a documentary about the wedding and I must confess, I just thought: WOW. The veil and the Tiara were stunning, really like a fairy tale. The dress was just overwhelming and nearly baroque. It suited to the 80ies and for the little girl in me it was really beautiful. But in fact my real favourites are completely different.

Without a doubt, Diana's dress didnt stand the test of time (say like a Princess Elizabeth of Great Britain or Princess Grace of Monaco)....she definitely got caught up in the decade.

I remember getting up to watch the dress at the crack of dawn and thought she look magnificient. I still do. Diana was a beautiful bride. The 80's dress not withstanding.

I have to point out again, that the photographed tiara is not one that Diana experts ever saw her wear. We don't know if the wedding tiara from the Spencer family is included in the exhibit.

I think, I missed this picture here:

Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected

It's the official group photograph of the entire family with other royal guests. Does someone have this picture in a better quality maybe?
I only ask because I find it very hard to identify someone in this picture.

It was broadcast the night before the wedding, I believe. I missed it, but my sister saw it. I saw the whole thing fairly recently via YouTube. It's fascinating to watch in retrospect. Prince Charles looks at Diana more than she looks at him, and his mouth twitches when he's asked about making his vows. Thanks for posting this and refreshing my memory, LadyAnn. :-)

Diana sounds so much like Keira Knightly. Are they from the same area?

Its a nice video... but the chairs looks very unconfortable and looks like they are made to keep distance between the people sitting in them... It doesnt looks like Carles and Diana are sitting together, just beside each other, if you understand what I mean.... but thats not their fault, probably TVs fault And to ask a future queen if she can cook is: I mean, she doesnt have to cook at all if she doesnt want to... and from a feministic point of view its terrible... Why dont ask Charles the same question?
