It’s easy to recall why there was so much excitement 10 years ago when they walked out of Westminster Abbey, smiling in the sunshine as two billion people watched worldwide. Diana’s son and his gorgeous bride had captured the global imagination and there they were, striding down the steps and into the future.
Not since Charles married Diana all those years ago had a royal wedding created so much hype and hysteria.
William and Kate were different from the start. Unlike with Charles, the queen didn’t need to approve William’s choice of partner. The prince chose his bride himself – and he chose wisely.
