About 500 million watched on TV as Prince Andrew married childhood friend Sarah Ferguson at Westminster Abbey, a few years after his older brother Charles married Diana. American First Lady Nancy Reagan was in the audience along with 2,000 others and 30,000 flowers. Sarah made a four-minute walk up the aisle with a 17-foot train behind her, and promised to "obey" her husband unlike Diana and Kate.
