British Royal Weddings of the 20th Century

British Royal Weddings of the 20th Century is an excellent compilation produced by British Pathe.  The DVD includes more than three hours of footage largely based on newsreels covering royal weddings from 1919 through 1999.

The DVD includes footage from the weddings of Princess Mary and Lord Lascelles, Lord Louis Mountbatten and the Hon. Edwina Ashley, the Duke of York and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece, the Duke of Gloucester and Lady Alice Scott, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Duke of Kent and Katharine Worsley,  Princess Alexandra and the Hon. Angus Ogilvy,  Prince Richard of Gloucester and Birgitte van Deurs, Princess Anne and Mark Phillips,  the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer,  Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.  There is also a bonus feature that includes footage from the wedding of Princess Patricia of Connaught and Alexander Ramsay, Lord Harewood and Marion Stein, Lady Pamela Mountbatten and David Hicks, and an alternative feature of Princess Margaret's wedding.

The coverage for the weddings of Prince Richard, Princess Patricia, Lord Harewood and Lady Pamela is for arrivals and departures of the newlyweds. 

This is an excellent DVD, a definite must have for royal collections.  It is available on both sides of the Pond in Region 1/NTSC and Region 2/Pal versions.   The US price is $15.99.
