Among the Royal Occasions that have been celebrated at St. Paul's are:
- Queen Elizabeth's 80th birthday in 2006
- Marriage of Catherine of Aragon to Prince Arthur in 1501
- Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee commemoration
- The Wedding of Charles, the Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981
|Years after the wedding, but couldn't resist adding this|
The State funerals of Admiral Lord Nelson, Sir Winston Churchill and other dignitaries have taken place at St. Paul's Cathedral, London.
In 1964, Martin Luther King made a stop to collect his Peace Prize.

In London, overall, we found the service excellent. At our hotel, clerks in shops, wait staff at restaurants and cafes, in cabs... I was impressed. Many kindnesses were shown to us in London (a contrast to Paris, for sure). The food was nothing special and sometimes quite strange. In general, the selections were more health-focused than in the States. More salads and fruits and fewer fried foods, snacks and desserts.
