Ahead of the wedding this weekend of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, we take a wander back through the sound archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision to hear how past royal weddings have been broadcast and celebrated on radio in New Zealand.

Sarah has audio of  the wedding of the Queen when she was Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten,  the wedding of the Queen's daughter Princess Anne to Captain Mark Phillips and the most famous of all - an interview with Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles before their wedding in 1981.
