Our fair Fraser!

The Royal Wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer was to be held on the 29th July, 1981 - London time - and Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser and Mrs Fraser were invited guests. The Australian TWU (Transport Workers' Union) was in the middle of a strike which denied oil supplies and flights were under threat. A last minute compromise saw the Frasers eventually arrive for the occasion.
