Behind the Scenes at the Royal Wedding: Previously Unseen Candid Photographs from Charles and Diana's Wedding in 1981

Dozen previously unpublished photos of the 1981 royal wedding were released for an auction back in September, 2015. These nostalgic pictures were taken by a relative and the only photographer who was allowed to take informal photographs of the royal family and their guests when they returned to the palace for the reception.
