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.

Formed from the merger of King & Sons, a maltsters set up in 1850, and G. H. Barnes & Co., a brewers dating back to 1800, in 1906 this family owned brewery survived until they were taken over by Hall & Woodhouse in Spring 2000, with all production at Horsham ceasing. Sussex Bitter and Old Ale are brewed at Hall & Woodhouse, Mild Ale is brewed at the Hall & Woodhouse owned Gribble Inn. The last member of the King family involved in the company still brews in Horsham as WJ King & Co (Brewers).
