Few events thrill us like royal weddings. Both as public ceremonies and
as personal milestones, these occasions feel like living fairy tales. In this
illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard explores the history of ten
regal marriages, including those of Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II,
Prince Charles, and Prince William. Beyond their glamour, how do
these occasions work to strengthen notions of national identity? How
have royal couples negotiated the balance between a significant
personal occasion and powerful national pressures?
