Hey there! Brand new, as I found this forum and figured it would be the best place to get help! My wife has been asked to make a replica of Princess Diana's cake, and I'm trying to help get any info for her!! Here are my questions... :)

-Are there any pics that anyone knows of that show all sides of the cake?

-We have figured out (as far as we know) what goes on the all of the tiers, except the 2nd one! From the pics we've found, it appears as though one is a waving flag, and one is a civic crown, maybe?

Any info would be greatly appreciated - if you know exactly what buildings went on the bottom, or what all 5 coats of arms/crests were, etc.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

My mom always says Diana was too young. Even when my parents got married five years earlier, my mom even says she was too young at 24. But my parents have been happily married for almost 37 years now, and have known each other for 47. If she was doing it again, my mom would have waited.

Well, I think it's all destiny. I think Charles & Diana's lives were meant to come together, even if it was just for a little while. Diana once mentioned that when she was a little girl, she she knew something special was going to happen in her life. She said she didn't know what or when but she knew she would have to save herself for it.

I know, I do miss those two together. I think despite their personal problems, Charles & Diana worked well together. She even thought they were a good team.

See, I think the opposite. The reason why they had so many personal problems, in my opinion, was because they weren't good together. I think Charles is much better suited with Camilla.

Very nice pics, thanks. The third pic is so sad if you know the end of the story. It is the beauty and the innocence of a young girl, entering into a fairy tale... which turned to a nightmare.

I think they had very different expectations from marriage. As she said, she wanted a father figure who would protect her and love her and (subconciously) who would make her abandonment issues go away. He wanted someone to have his children and then let him live his life as he wished. He was used to being cared for, not doing the caring. They could have been great and they were wonderful at traveling and mixing with the people. But their personality conflicts made it impossible.

They lived in two very different worlds, even though they were married to each other. This is one of the first impressions that I got of them. The two different worlds were difficult to bring together for a variety of different reasons.

I think as the Prince of Wales came into his 30's, there was a lot of pressure on him to find someone who was suitable to marry. There wasn't a large pool of women to pick from (limited by social standing and virginity being a requirement) and by the time one gets into their late 20's and early 30's especially at that time period late 1970's, early 1980's), most women who might have been eligible in his age group were probably already married, a few of them possibly divorced and a few perhaps living with a partner. Being divorced or having lived with a partner previously would have made one ineligible for marriage.

I imagine you would have been very hard pressed to find a woman in her late 20's or early 30's who was still a virgin and who was in the right social standing to be the bride of the Prince of Wales. So the woman had to be much younger than him for that reason.

Well I think he'd had a few 'no thank you' replies as well prior to Diana. Still I can't imagine she was the only virgin from his social set.

I agree and I wish the past could be left alone.

Charles was pretty excited about his marriage to Diana. I remember when he was trying to figure out the landscaping for their Highgrove Estate, he had menioned in a documentary that he wanted to design the grass with lots of C's and D's. Diana even said they were really happy in the beginning.

Then again, that was the past. Nothing can be changed now.

Everyone was so filled with so many expectations of this marriage. I was a kid, and can still remember the Archbishop of Canterbury remarking on "The Prince and Princess on their Wedding Day;" he captured the essence of it all to so many of us in that very simple line, but so filled with meaning. They were supposed to be a fairy tale.

It's almost difficult, even for me, to look at these photos now. Looking at the wedding photos now, those candid behind the scenes shots makes you feel like you're there, you have a crystal ball, and you want to leap up and put a stop to the whole thing, and you feel so helpless that you can't.
