A Dream Wedding
By Jane Runyon

1     Girls often dream of a fairy tale wedding. They imagine marrying the man of their dreams, their Prince Charming. They imagine a wedding where flowers are everywhere. The bride is wearing a beautiful gown. People cheer the happy couple. The bride and groom always live happily ever after in a fairy tale dream.
2     The world was able to see firsthand just such a fairy tale wedding on July 29, 1981. Prince Charles of England married Lady Diana Spencer on that day. Their wedding was viewed by approximately 3,000 invited guests and 750 million people watching on their television sets around the world. It is estimated that two million people lined the streets of London in hopes of catching a glimpse of the royal couple on their journey to St. Paul's Cathedral for the ceremony. These same people lined the streets after the ceremony from St. Paul's to Buckingham Palace where the wedding breakfast took place.
3     Prince Charles Philip Arthur George is the eldest son of the reigning queen, Elizabeth II, and Prince Philip. As the eldest son, he is first in line to succeed his mother when she steps down as queen or dies. A prince in his position is watched very closely by his subjects. The people want to know who he plans to marry and when. He would be responsible for fathering future kings and queens of their country. The people wanted their prince to marry a woman worthy of ruling by his side. They wanted someone worthy of being their queen.
