The Wedding March- Trivia

 Did you happen to watch on PBS the documentary this past week of Queen Victoria and her children? I did and they failed to tell us about "The Wedding March." It so happen that on January 25 1858 at the wedding of her oldest daughter Victoria Adelaida Mary Louisa to Crown Prince of Prussia German Emperor Frederick 111. "The Wedding March" of Mendelssohn's was presented for the first time.
