It was a wedding that captivated the world. On July 29, 1981, a young Diana Spencer married Prince Charles at St. Paul's Cathedral in London. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched on television as Diana stepped out of a horse-drawn carriage in a billowing ivory taffeta dress. Now that gown, along with 28 other designer dresses, childhood memorabilia, and a lot of family bling can be seen at West Edmonton Mall. Daybreak's Nola Keeler got a sneak peek at the exhibit and she spoke with Russell Bowers about Diana: A Celebration.
According to the Althorp Estate, profits from this exhibition will go to The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
