Royal Wedding

Issue No. 2201

This one-off television drama written by Bafta-winning Abi Morgan, is set against the backdrop of 1981’s marriage of Noddy to Big Ears (as Socialist Worker put it at the time) – Lady Diana Spencer to HRH Charles, Prince of Wales. On the day of the wedding the sun is shining and everyone is in high spirits.

However, as the day goes on the optimistic mood begins to fade, as the neighbours’ lives unravel, secrets are exposed and hopes are shattered.
