July 23, 1986: Prince Andrew Marries Sarah Ferguson

BBC

The daughter of Prince Charles’ polo manager and a close friend of Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was 26 when she walked down the aisle with Prince Andrew at Westminster Abbey. BBC News explained, “Inside, 2,000 people, amid 30,000 flowers, watched the bride make her four-minute walk up the blue-carpeted aisle, sweeping a 17-foot train behind her. The Duchess looked radiant in her ivory duchesse satin dress, next to the Duke – four months her junior – in the ceremonial day dress of a naval lieutenant.”
