CHAPTER 1

A PASSION IN COMMON LED TO MORE

By now, you most likely are familiar with Princess Royal's love for horses. Since Anne was very young, she was genuinely fond of the equestrian world, and it was this what led her to find who she thought was her soulmate. According to CheatSheet, the Queen's only daughter met Captain Mark Phillips in 1972 during the Munich Olympics. 

The lieutenant in the 1st Queen's Dragoon Guards and the Princess were both at a party for horse enthusiasts, so their shared affinity made them bond. Sadly for youngsters, marriage entails much more than only an interest in common.

AND THEN DOWN THE ALTAR 

Anyway, one thing led to the other, and the two ended up engaged in May 1973, and later that year in November, they tied the knot. The gorgeous ceremony took place at Westminster Abbey, with millions of viewers (500, to be exact) turning on their TVs to witness the royal love before God. 

Perhaps, for you, watching royal nuptials on the boob tube is quite common these days. But some decades earlier, the blue-blood hysteria was just getting started with Anne and later with Lady Di and Charles. But again, a lovely and sought-after wedding is no guarantee for a happy marriage.
