British Royal Weddings

Explore the tradition, splendor and romance
of the seven royal weddings.
 

The Royal Collection is launching the first official ‘Royal App’ about British royal weddings of the past, in the run-up to the forthcoming marriage of HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton. Royal Collection Apps are the latest way that the Royal Household is engaging with new media and follows the successful launch of the British Monarchy’s presence on Facebook and Flickr last year, of the Royal Twitter account in 2009 and the Royal Channel on YouTube in 2007.

Over the last two centuries, royal weddings have evolved from strictly private occasions to international celebrations. With the advent of photography, film, television and now new technology, ever-increasing numbers can witness and participate in these events. The Royal Weddings app tells the story of seven royal weddings, from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, to TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall in 2005.
