1981 Royal Wedding - Charles and Diana
29th July 1981: Charles and Diana marry
Crowds of 600,000 people filled the streets of London to catch a glimpse of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer on their wedding day.
The couple were married at St Paul's Cathedral before an invited congregation of 3,500 and an estimated global TV audience of 750 million - making it the most popular programme ever broadcast.

Britons enjoyed a national holiday to mark the occasion.

Lady Diana, 20, arrived almost on time for the 1120 BST ceremony after making the journey from Clarence House in the Glass Coach with her father, Earl Spencer.

Originally founded in 1780 and acquired by Daniel Higson in 1875 this brewery brewed at a number of sites in Liverpool before moving to Cain's brewery when they merged with Walkers of Warrington. They were taken over by Boddingtons in 1985. In 1990 the brewery was closed and production moved to Manchester. The brewery was sold to the become the current Cains brewery. Under the ownership of Whitbread, the production was switched to Castle Eden before production of the brand ceased in 1999. A new company was formed in 2005 to brew a recreation of the original beer.
