BritBox to air Wedding of the Century this week

40 years since that royal wedding, Britbox will screen an original documentary Wedding of the Century.

The exclusively remastered original film of Charles and Diana’s royal wedding, featuring never before seen footage

2021 marks 40 years since the iconic Royal moment in history when Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer. The marriage of the future King of England and ‘The People’s Princess’ received an estimated global television audience of 750 million people.

Beautifully restored film of Charles and Diana’s wedding is the jewel in the crown of this feature-length documentary, which also includes never-before-heard anecdotes from the day and interviews with key insiders involved in planning the record-breaking event. These include the chief royal florist David Longman who met with Diana to create a bouquet fit for a princess, musical director Barry Rose who conducted the choir inside St. Paul’s Cathedral, Royal Navy head baker Dave Avery who met with Diana before spending 14 weeks creating the wedding cake, and royal photographer Kent Gavin who captured the ceremony inside St. Paul’s and whom Diana later chose to photograph Prince William’s christening.
