Royal Weddings: A Very Peculiar History

Royal Weddings: A Very Peculiar History


Delight in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s smooth path to the altar, compared to the rocky road endured by Britain’s earlier princes and princesses, who had to marry for power, wealth and legitimate heirs—from King Charles I, who wore a disguise in 1622 to spy on the Spanish princess his father wanted him to marry, to Queen Elizabeth I, who stayed single rather than lose control of her kingdom, and Edward VIII, who gave up the throne for the love of his life. Marvel at complicated courtships, extravagant ceremonies, weighty tiaras, calamitous wedding nights, secret ceremonies, inconvenient mistresses and other fascinating complications. Hardcover, 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"; 248 pages.
