Diana ballet

Twenty-year-old Diana became Princess of Wales when she married the Prince of Wales on 29 July 1981 at St Paul's Cathedral , which offered more seating than Westminster Abbey , which was generally used for royal nuptials. [21] [18] The service was widely described as a "fairytale wedding" and was watched by a global television audience of 750 million people while 600,000 spectators lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the couple en route to the ceremony. [18] [38] At the altar, Diana accidentally reversed the order of Charles's first two names, saying "Philip Charles" Arthur George instead. [38] She did not say that she would "obey" him; that traditional vow was left out at the couple's request, which caused some comment at the time. [39] Diana wore a dress valued at £9,000 with a 25-foot (-metre) train. [40] Music and songs used during the wedding included the " Prince of Denmark's March ", " I Vow to Thee, My Country ", " Pomp and Circumstance ", and " God Save the Queen ". [41]

Since the Renaissance the myth of Diana has often been represented in the visual and dramatic arts, including the opera L'arbore di Diana . In the 16th century, Diana's image figured prominently at the châteaus of Fontainebleau , Chenonceau , & at Anet , in deference to Diane de Poitiers , mistress of Henri of France . At Versailles she was incorporated into the Olympian iconography with which Louis XIV , the Apollo-like "Sun King" liked to surround himself. Diana is also a character in the 1876 Léo Delibes ballet Sylvia . The plot deals with Sylvia, one of Diana's nymphs and sworn to chastity, and Diana's assault on Sylvia's affections for the shepherd Amyntas.
