Dear Diamanttiara, I just bought the book "Royal Weddings" which is a brand new release. I am sure it must be the one you are looking for, since it is the onliest about royal weddings I have heard about. A huge compilation of the best royal weddings from Queen Victoria, Grace Kelly, Juan Carlos and Sofia, Máxima and many others - with lots of marvellous pictures and illustrations and interesting background information. It's in German and English - you will love it! I already know how I will spent my weekend!!

I bought this book today and it's simply marvellous. Lots of photos that I have never seen before and many background information. Did you know, for example, that Alfred Hitchcock's wedding present to Grace Kelly was a shower curtain? It also shows many beautiful details such as the menu of the wedding of Felipe and Letizia or the invitation to the wedding of Maxima and Willem-Alexander. And the most fun images are those of the Crown Prince couple of Brunei. I will have a great weekend, I am sure!

This looks like the Amazon page for the book, which isn't out yet in the USA or the United Kingdom.

Yes, that's the one! It was posted today with further information at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ngs-17560.html. I am lucky because it is released in Germany already. It's simply fantastic!

I've preordered it from Amazon. From what everyone's saying, it looks as though it's well worth it.

Thatīs the book I was looking for

"I bought the book yesterday. Itīs really great. The fotos are phantastic and show some really private moments backstage. And - though I think I`m an expert on royal concerns - I found lots of details I didnīt know. The japanese couple wasnīt alloud to eat the whole wedding day for example. And on some stories I really had to cry a little bit. Thereīs an excerpt from the after-dinner speech Haakon held on his wedding and I think itīs the most romantic weddingspeech I ever heard of."

Well, we've received an e-mail from the publisher of this book at the TRF e-mail account. I assume she won't mind having the cover of the book included in the post since it was in the e-mail.



This magnificent volume will fascinate all interested by lavish indulgence fit for a king!
This richly illustrated volume offers a unique impression of the most spectacular royal weddings!

Today we would like to present our new title Royal Weddings!


Nothing surpasses the pageantry of a royal wedding. Pomp and ritual combine in a spectacle few can resist. That mingling of personal charisma, age-old institutions, and contemporary mores is enough to intrigue the most hardened of hearts! These royal unions embody the hopes, dreams and characteristics of nations as distinct as Sweden, Japan and Spain. Comprehensive text and stunning pictures chronicle the fascinating details that make these state celebrations of personal commitment so unique and memorable.

Books on British Royal Weddings historical & contemporary

1. Five Gold Rings: A Royal Wedding Souvenir Album, From Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II, published by Royal Collection Publications, 2007
A very lovely compact book with wonderful photos and paintings, enhanced by fascinating details and anecdotes in brief text nuggets.

2. Royal Wedding: The Souvenir Album, by Alison James, Danaan Books, 2018
An updated rundown of British royal family weddings from Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip, to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle. It's an oversize book with full-page color photos (b&w of QEII & Pip, and David & Wallis), and introductory text with details and anecdotes surrounding each wedding.

3. Harry & Meghan: The Royal Wedding Album, by Halima Sadat with a foreword by Brian Hoey, Sterling New York, 2018
This is a lovely book with wonderful photographs and a fairly decent text. However, the book includes at least one blatant error declaring that Meghan's mother Doria decided as a young adult "to move to the Golden State to seek her fortune ... with the advent of the hippies and flower power, California was the place to be." That's pure fiction/ fanciful supposition. Meghan's mother was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1956, and her family soon after her birth migrated across country to California. Meghan's Uncle Joseph (Doria's older half-brother) relayed this to Daily Mail. And as well, Meghan once spoke about it in a public service ad sponsored by USA Network.

4. Harry & Meghan: An Invitation to the Royal Wedding, by Angela Peel, with a foreword by Tim Ewart, Carlton Books, 2018
I enjoyed this book, but it also contains some errors as likely researched from the Internet. This book was put together before the royal wedding in May. It provides some background on the early lives of Meghan and Harry, and includes information on the plans for the upcoming wedding, with nice color pictures. Some premises are a bit overdone, but it's a nice book overall. At the end, there's also a brief nod to Princess Eugenie & Jack Brooksbank's engagement and planned nuptials.

5. Harry & Meghan: The Royal Wedding Album, by Angela Peel, 2018
Peel came out with another book post-wedding. I have not seen a copy of this book yet. And it's quite confusing because of its exact same title as the Halima Sadat book.

6. Harry & Meghan: The Wedding Album, by Robert Jobson, 2018
I haven't seen a copy of this book yet either. And again, the title is so similar to two of the other books on the same subject. This book costs a hefty $37.00 though, much more expensive comparatively. Plus, it's not available at my local library.
