"The Royal Wedding Celebration"

Great release of the famous Royal Wedding celebrated by many and broadcasted around the world.

Because of the Royal Wedding that tied the knot for Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, we'd thought it'd be nice to look back at the wedding that took place prior. While witnessing the late but lovely Princess Diana grace the stage as a child, the wedding that stood out the most personally was this: Prince William & Kate Middleton.

This simple DVD starts off what looked like a documentary, narrated by Ann Bryson. Approaching near the middle of the presentation, the viewer then gets an uninterrupted presentation of the ceremony to which Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially husband and wife. Near the end, you get a long but brief shot of the newlywed couple heading to the Buckingham Palace. There they made their final appearance waving to the public, and finally kissing at the balcony.

For The Royal Engagement Interview, it's very much an in-depth look with Prince William and Kate Middleton talking about how they met, what went through their minds and a rundown of how they got together, onward to proposing. Though that may not sound much, you'll be surprised to learn how they both got together and the little obstacle they overcame before realizing that marrying was the best option. The interview was aired and shot by itv News.

I must say, the DVD menu was neatly done giving that ceremonial feel to it.

When it comes to huge events like this, you can imagine the turnout. Okay, don't imagine it because here are screenshots showing so:

Would've liked to see more packed into this DVD—photo galleries, more interviews, talking to the crowd and their reactions. Besides that, it's a simple DVD release that ought to appeal to those who are big fans of the Royal Family, let alone British/UK culture.

Title The Royal Wedding Celebration

The Royal Wedding is a commemorative celebration of the marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey on Friday the 29th April 2011.

From the excitement, expectation and joy of the crowds to the couple's balcony appearance, this celebratory film brings all the official coverage of the day together in one memorable film.

In an uplifting, definitive and memorable account of this truly historic and romantic event, no aspect of the day is missed.

The story embraces the reaction of the public, the arrival of Kate at the Abbey, the reveal of her dress, the bridesmaids, Prince Harry as best man, the service itself in full, the triumphant drive through the crowds back to Buckingham Palace and the balcony kiss.

Every highlight of this very special day is captured for posterity — and for future generations to enjoy.

After announcing their engagement Prince William and Kate Middleton gave their only interview to Tom Bradby. The couple spoke openly about the marriage proposal, the engagement ring, the moment they met each other's families and their plans for children.
