1973: Britain's Princess Anne marries a commoner, Mark Phillips, then a lieutenant in the 1st Queen's Dragoon Guards, in London's Westminster Abbey. An estimated 500 million television viewers from around the world watched them marry. They would divorce in 1992, with Princess Anne re-marrying that same year.
