This is one wedding that has to be mentioned within the top ten, mainly due to the fact that it is the longest lasting royal marriage to date!

7. George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon

After recently watching “The King’s Speech,” I have become intrigued about the Queen Mum’s and “Bertie’s” relationship. Despite being thrust into public life, this was a couple who stuck together.

6. Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson

This royal wedding holds a special place in my heart for the simple fact that despite him being heir to the throne of Denmark, he still married his true love.

5. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III

When it comes to fairy-tale weddings, nothing could beat Grace Kelly’s beautiful wedding in Monte Carlo in 1956. However such a tragic end to a real life love story.

4. Prince Albert and Princess Alexandra

3. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert
