18 Ways Princess Diana Shook Up The Royal House
Her wedding was truly a spectacle
Royal weddings werenâ€™t always the public showcases they are today. But Dianaâ€™s, hers whipped up a fervor. Her wedding was the highest watched event in British television history, a thing even her sonsâ€™ weddings could not top. One of her bridesmaidâ€™s was Winston Churchillâ€™s granddaughter, and the bride donned a gown with a 25 foot long train. The couple had only been together on 13 occasions before saying â€œI do,â€ but somehow they felt the weight of fairy tale expectations from all corners of the globe. Diana was incredibly young, just twenty on the day of her wedding. Within a year she would be pregnant with the heir to the throne.
