On 1/06/1999, they announced their engagement. The early-evening wedding ceremonies on 6/19/1999, attended by just 550 family members and close friends, was held well away from London's great cathedrals and with no official representation from foreign countries. The entire British royal family was in attendance, excluding noted ex-wives and longtime loves. After the ceremony, the newlyweds took a jubilant ride in an open carriage through the historic heart of Windsor, past cheering crowds, some of whom had camped overnight to secure their prime spots. Both parties are determined to make their marriage last and avoid the highly publicized stumbles of Edward's siblings.
