Pop History Moment: The Marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales

On this day in 1981 the greatest fairy tale of modern times was enacted when Lady Diana Spencer - youngest daughter of Earl Spencer and Mrs. Frances Shand Kydd - married The Prince of Wales at St Paul's Cathedral in London. Everything was planned down to the last detail - from the star-studded seating arrangement to the elaborate bridal gown - and everything would have gone perfectly, except...

No one thought to plan the happy ending!

Yes, that whole darn thing about humans being more than their pretty or non-pretty skins does get in the way sometimes, doesn't it?

It's nothing to do with pretty. It has to do with the corrosive power of myth.

"They all lived happily ever after..." is not the end of anything, but the beginning.
