On the cover in... 1961

TV Times - - News -

It wasn’t the first royal wed­ding to

be tele­vised – that hon­our went to Princess Mar­garet’s mar­riage to Antony Armstrong-jones the pre­vi­ous year – but there was still much ex­cite­ment over ITV’S cov­er­age of the Duke of Kent’s wed­ding to Katharine Wors­ley on 8 June 1961.

‘Katharine is friendly, charm­ing and un­spoilt,’ a lo­cal from the bride’s home vil­lage of Hov­ing­ham, North York­shire, told TV Times.

The pair are still mar­ried but the Duchess largely gave up royal du­ties in 2002.
