The couple married in 1981, despite rumours surrounding their tumultuous relationship and the scrutiny of the British press. However, the couple’s wedding was watched by millions across the world and has become remembered for one very special reason.
Diana and Charles’ wedding day kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palace has been voted Britain’s most memorable kiss.

Following their romantic kiss is Prince William and Kate’s embrace in 2011.
In third place is Prince Harry and Meghan Marke’s kiss last year outside St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
