Royal weddings are usually very grand affairs orchestrated amid great pomp and ceremony, and, since Princess Margaret's wedding to the Earl of Snowden in 1960, watched on television by millions of viewers worldwide. The expected viewing audience for the royal wedding of HRH Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton is expected to exceed recorded viewing numbers for earlier royal weddings.Westminster Abbey, featured on the minisheet of this official stamp issue, has been the traditional venue for royal weddings since Prince William¹s great-grandfather, the then Duke of York, married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen Mother, there in 1923. The next royal wedding to be held in the Abbey was that of his grandmother, the then Princess Elizabeth, now Queen Elizabeth II, to Prince Philip in 1947.

The last royal marriage to take place in Westminster Abbey was that of Prince William¹s uncle, Prince Andrew, who became the Duke of York upon his marriage in 1986. Prince William was a page boy on the occasion.
