William & Catherine: Their Romance and Royal Wedding in Photographs . Few events capture the world’s heart like a British royal wedding–even more so, when it is the first wedding of a future British king to a commoner in more than 350 years. This richly illustrated keepsake book commemorates Prince William’s fairy tale romance with Kate Middleton, and their spectacular nuptials at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. Through more than 200 magnificent photographs, William & Catherine recounts the couple’s wildly different childhoods, their romance and engagement, the events leading up to the wedding, and the grand affair itself. Here are the massive crowds lining the parade route, the sparkling celebrities at Westminster Abbey, the bride’s stunning gown, “The Kiss” on Buckingham Palace’s balcony, and the glittering post-nuptial receptions. Also included is a brief pictorial history of British royal weddings, from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840 to Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981.
With fascinating captions and a foreword by renowned royal watcher Robert Jobson, author of William & Kate, The Love Story and royal correspondent for four major British newspapers, this book magnificently illustrates the pomp, the pageantry, the history, and the enchantment of the romance that charmed the world.
