Diana was only allowed to invite 100 people to Royal Wedding – Charles got 1,900

Princess Diana was only allowed to invite 100 people to her Royal Wedding to Prince Charles.

The massive occasion was attended by 2,000 people – but the bride's guest list was absolutely tiny compared to the groom's.

Politicians, important figures and royalty from around the world all made the list, but Diana used her invites to include her friends, family and former colleagues in the celebrations.

Mary Robertson, Diana's former employers, was one of the guests on the future Royal's list.

Speaking on British TV for the first time in Channel 5's new documentary Charles and Diana: The Truth Behind their Wedding, she said: "We learnt later that Diana had only been allowed 100 invitations out of 2,000.

"But I got one. She remembered us."

She speaks fondly of the historical day in 1981.

She said: "St Paul's was lit up. It's never looked so good.

"There was this lovely buzz. Just one of joy and happiness, except for the handful of people who understood what was really going on."

Mary hired the then Lady Diana Spencer on the spot with absolutely no knowledge of her royal connections after seeing her with her son.

She interviewed for a job taking care of Mary's little boy Patrick, and was a huge hit with the family.

Speaking on the documentary she said: "She was very much in love with Prince Charles, or certainly, with the image of Prince Charles.

"Charles was wonderful, he was so charming.

"Diana was head over heels in love with Charles. I just assumed things were going to work out beautifully.

"She was just so appealing and warm and beautiful, it never occurred to me that he wouldn't learn to love her."

Mary hired Diana to look after her son before she became engaged to Charles, offering her a job on the spot after an impressive interview.

She said: "She came over interviewed and she was so good with my son, so natural, down to earth and just beautiful.
