A Royal Engagement

The engagement of Kate Middleton to Prince William was announced last week, after he had proposed to her 10,500m up Mount Kenya, in a lakeside cabin last month. Kate had written in the visitor's book, before leaving, that she "loved the warm fires and candlelight", describing the proposal as "so romantic". The ring that he presented her with, was the engagement ring of his late mother's, Princess Diana or Wales, which was a Sapphire and diamond ring. After the elegance and beauty of Diana's wedding, and her caring personality, Kate and her new fiance now have a large pair of shoes to fill.

In light of this romantic occasion, I have decided to take a look at past royal and iconic weddings, that Kate may perhaps take influence from.
