This is the cover of the August 3rd, 1981 issue of Time magazine. This would have been published only a few days after the wedding between Princess Diana and Prince Charles, as the cover clearly shows. The image of the two of them and the heading “Three Cheers!” makes clear reference to the momentous occasion of their wedding, and it also shows that this publication sees it as a joyous event to celebrate. Time is owned by Meredith Corporation, the same media company that owns and publishes Travel & Leisure. Both of these magazines featured covers relating to the royal couple and/or England for the issues published closest to the date of the wedding, showing how invested in the wedding and relationship between Princess Diana and Prince Charles much of the world was. Tons of people were following the events and consuming the media that was produced centered around their wedding.
