ANOTHER BRITISH ROYAL WEDDING FROM THE PAST: THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF YORK, JULY 23, 1986

Continuing our countdown to Zara Phillips’ wedding which will take place on July 3oth, today we take a look back at the wedding of Prince Andrew to Sarah Ferguson.  The Queen’s second son married Sarah Ferguson on July 23, 1986 at Westminster Abbey.  Before William’s wedding to Catherine Middleton, Andrew and Sarah’s nuptials were the last time a such a royal ceremony had taken place at the abbey.  Queen Elizabeth II conferred the title Duke of York on Prince Andrew.   The couple later divorced in 1996.  Sarah and Andrew are the parents of Princess Beatrice (b. 1988) and Princess Eugenie (b. 1990).
