When Prince Charles and Lady Diana wed at St. Paul's Cathedral in 1981, LIFE was there. Now, as Charles and Di's elder son, Prince William, weds K ate Middleton at Westminster on April 29, 2011, LIFE is again front and center. This is the expanded edition of LIFE's recent book on the lives and romance of Will and Kate, out quickly and now including 20 pages of photography, some of it exclusively commissioned by LIFE and appearing here for the first time, of the wedding itself.

Before we arrive at the Big Day, there is the Cinderella story to tell: The heir to the British throne-the boy who will indeed be king one day-and the lovely commoner who won his heart. In this book, LIFE surrounds their story with context: We meet the Windsors who have made Buckingham Palace their own since Victoria's day, and we meet the Middletons, a loving, self-made family from the hinterlands. We watch Kate and William grow, separately and together. The photographs are uniformly excellent; this is no paparazzi scrapbook, it is LIFE. We are there in William's dorm room at Eton and as he trains in the British military. We are there at the horse races and gala events as Kate asserts herself as her nation's greatest fashion icon since Diana. We are there as the big day approaches. In a special section, LIFE looks back through great photography, some of which first appeared in our pages, at grand royal weddings of the past: Elizabeth II's, Grace Kelly's in Monaco, and of course the wedding of the century, the 1981 marriage of Charles and Diana, whose elder son now takes a bride. No one tells this story like LIFE, as is proved anew in this special book.

Synopsis:

An intimate account of the Royal couple, featuring breathtaking photos from the April 29th Royal Wedding.

LIFE has covered all of the lavish royal weddings since even before Queen Elizabeth II wed in 1947, and of course the magazine documented in splendid, intimate detail the "wedding of the century," that of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, years later. Now LIFE celebrates the royal engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

  • This book includes intimate pictures of William and Kate as they grew to be the splendid adults they are today.
  • The best photographs of royal weddings that have already been, including those of Charles and Diana, Grace Kelly and Rainier of Monaco, Fergie and Andrew, and many others.
  • A detailed look at the Middletons and the Windsors-the latter,

    royal family dating back to Queen Victoria.

  • Photography from Buckingham Palace insiders, including

    pictures from Litchfield and Lord Snowdon.
