73007: Queen Elizabeth’s Grandson Engaged

As Britain’s Queen Elizabeth celebrates her diamond wedding anniversary in 2007 with a Buckingham Palace exhibit showcasing the white satin Norman Hartnell bridal attire she donned for her walk down the aisle of Westminster Abbey, the monarch is not only reminiscing about her own nuptials 60 years ago, but is also looking to the future with anticipation as her eldest grandson prepares for his wedding day.

On July 28, 2007, Buckingham Palace released an announcement proclaiming that Peter Phillips, (who as the son of Princess Anne is 10th in line for succession, although he holds no royal title), is engaged to Autumn Kelly, a former Canadian management consultant who has been his love since 2003. A date for the exchange of vows was not made public.
