Everyone loves a good fairytale…or, at least my daughter does. (Me? Not so much…) But it was on July 29, 1981 that the world looked on at the fairytale wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. (Sure, it didn’t last, but so what?)
Lord Patrick Lichfield was the only photographer allowed to capture the candid moments of the royal family as they returned to Buckingham Palace for the reception after the big to-do at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Lichfield was commissioned with compiling a private photo album for the newlyweds, but not all of his photos made the final cut. Now these never-before-seen images have been brought to light, thanks to Lichfield’s assistant that day, and are being sold by RR Auction in Boston.
