Synopsis

Royal Weddings A Very Peculiar History by Fiona MacDonald

With the echo of regal church bells set to ring in the ears of royalists and well-wishers worldwide, what better time to take a look at the quirky, odd and downright bizarre circumstances surrounding the weddings of the kings, queens, princes and princesses of Britain. One must leave one's sense of decorum at the palace gates as Fiona Macdonald tells the wacky stories surrounding the preparations, dresses, ceremonies and national moods that went with the excitement of a royal wedding, from England's resident marriage addict Henry VIII, through Anne Hyde, the 'commoner' who birthed two queens, right up to Prince Charles, Princess Diana and their son and daughter-in-law to be. Featuring facts, figures and family trees, Royal Weddings, A Very Peculiar History is sure to get one in the spirit of things come the marriage of Prince William and Catherine 'Kate' Middleton. Just make sure there's room in your cupboard for a few more commemorative plates!
