Their wedding was equally as beautiful with a bit less press hype. The Royals had so much fun at the wedding that apparently Kate Middleton took some ideas from it when she married Prince William in 2011. The stress that must come with a royal wedding must be chilling to the core. Anyone who’s anyone will be there, and all the cameras are on the bride and groom. However, royals are groomed from a young age to deal with such pressures.

When the couple renewed their vowels in 2012, Carey wore a mermaid themed gown that was colored off white and had a black band around it. The couple would not be a forever matrimony though and divorced a few years later.

Diana, Princess of Wales

The wedding between Diana Princess of Wales and Prince Charles son of the queen in 1981, was probably the most watched TV event of the 1980s.

The couple had divorced one year before Diana’s tragic death. The couple did not have a very healthy relationship prior to her death as she was not very accepted by the royal family, and was considered a nuisance by the Queen, but the people of England loved her as she did so much for the nation through nonprofit activism before her passing.
