Across "The Pond" in London, Buckingham Palace is the home of Queen Elizabeth II. For the Royal Family, duty is everything and the Young Royals, beloved by the Queen, follow traditional protocols but in their own way are modernizing the monarchy for the 21st Century. The pomp and circumstance of state visits and royal weddings is a sight to behold and the preparations for such events involve many months of meticulous planning. See Elizabeth & David Emanuel's sketches of Princess Diana's wedding dress and a photo album made by them depicting the months of work it took to make. This album is one of only three made, the first being given to the Prince and Princess as a wedding gift.
