The beauty of Westminster Abbey, with its towers rising high above mighty entrance doors, has witnessed centuries of royal coronations, funerals and the most celebrated of weddings. Every English monarch since William the Conqueror has been crowned here, most recently Queen Elizabeth herself in the 1950s, in the first royal event to captivate the British nation on television. This is a place of sombre royal occasions too. The world watched as Princess Diana's funeral was held at Westminster Abbey in 1997. For hundreds of years, the Abbey has celebrated royal weddings, most recently that of Prince William to Kate Middleton.
