Across "The Pond", Buckingham Palace is the London home of Queen Elizabeth II and for the Royal Family,
duty is everything. The pomp and circumstance of state visits and royal weddings is a sight to behold and preparations for such events involve many, many months of meticulous planning. See the Emanuel's sketches of Princess Diana's wedding dress and an original photo album depicting the months of work it took to make. This album is one of only three made, the first being presented to the Prince and Princess of Wales as a wedding gift. See their original wedding booklets of the Order of Service and Ceremonial Processional Route from Buckingham Palace and St. James's Palace.
