This past July 29th marked the anniversary of the wedding that captivated the world. It was when Lady Diana Spencer said “I will” to Britain’s Prince Charles, becoming Princess of Wales and bringing fresh youth and glamour to Britain’s royal family. Now, 36 years later, The Associated Press has restored original footage from the July 29, 1981, wedding and has released it in 4-K resolution on YouTube. The 25 minutes of footage comes from the archive of British Movietone, the only company to film the wedding on high-quality 35 mm film, making it possible to restore it to a higher quality.
This Thursday marks the 20 year anniversary of Diana’s tragic death in a car crash in Paris. (The Canadian Press)
