Yes, I do!  I was 14 at the time!  There's a documentary about the wedding on UK tv tonight (ITV1 8pm).  Don't know if I can bear to watch it though.....

Well, considering I was born after the wedding, I don't remember it. But I do enjoy looking at photos and old video footage from the wedding. It was such a magical day.

It's such a shame how the marriage ended. It didn't stand a chance, really. Camilla telling Charles what to do and then reporting leaks about marital problems to the press every week. I think Diana would have made a good queen, if Charles and Diana worked on their marriage. There were times when they seemed happy together, and if only Charles got over his jealousy and saw Diana's popularity as a compliment to himself for choosing such a great wife.

I was 19, and watched the wedding in a bar on holiday in Majorca with my then boyfriend...I agree that the celebrations were genuine and more heartfelt than those of Wills and his chosen thingy.  In fact, my neighbours were still celebrating the wedding when we arrived home  easter-lol

How long was Lady Diana's bridal train? Twenty-five-feet is the answer.

Would Westminster Abbey have worked as the location of Princess Diana's wedding?

^I think their wedding was a legit state affair with folks coming from all over. With that amount of people, I don't think the Abbey would have worked.

Wikipedia declared: "Charles and Diana selected St. Paul's because it offered more seating and permitted a longer procession through the streets of London."

As heir to the throne, Charles needed to invite a lot of people.

It wasn't until my recent visit to the Abbey that I realized how few people were actually at W & K's wedding. If it had been me, I wouldn't have picked it for my ceremony.

^ Westminster Abbey has a 2,000 seat capacity. St Paul's Cathedral can seat 3,500. Having said that though, at the Queen's Coronation at the Abbey, 8,000 people were in attendance, with the addition of extra stands and tiers. The Abbey is historically the place that is important in British national life. Monarchs are crowned there, senior royals' funerals are held there and it's the Abbey, with the exception of Charles and Diana, where senior royals wed, at least in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The dress she wore was regal, not 'modern' and not like anything that was worn by any real bride. She looked the part of the princess bride and she was someone who clearly knew she was special. What made her special was how different her life was from the mainstream.

Thanks; what really impressed me about royals back then is that they were the ultimate outsiders and in her own way, Diana was. When Diana walked up that aisle, being older, I understand that she understood what it was to be different and be unable to help it. She understood this and everyone around her sensed it; she clearly knew a lot about it and she reached out to those with AIDS and other diseases that ostracized them from the mainstream that was too interested in their own ambitions and gratification to bother reaching out or even being decent towards people that they (the mainstream) didn't think were good enough to be treated as human.
