Troubled Decorations...

On July 29th, 1981 at St. Paul's Cathedral, London Prince Charles had married Lady Diana Spencer. It was a public holiday throughout Britain and at the time was the most popular TV programme ever broadcast with an audience of 750 million.

Meantime the British Government was facing problems with unemployment, issues that resulted in riots and the future directions of the Commonwealth of Nations.
