Thirty-six years after Charles and Diana tied the knot, the Associated Press has released newly restored footage of their wedding day.

Now posted on YouTube in 4K, the 25 minutes of video features original commentary from the pomp and circumstance that Diana would later call the "worst day of my life."

The AP acquired British Movietone last year; they were the only organization to capture the wedding on "high-quality 35 mm film," which was essential to the restoration process.

"The restored 4K film is simply stunning and a world away from the 1980s videotape versions that we’re familiar with," said Alwyn Lindsey, AP’s vice president of sales for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

In addition to the video above, the AP has a whole playlist of clips from the ceremony inside St. Paul's Cathedral to the crowd at Buckingham Palace to the traditional kiss on the royal balcony. Watch a select few of their videos below, or head over to YouTube to see the full 15.

Charles and Diana separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996. She died tragically in a car crash in Paris one year later. The 20th anniversary of her death is Thursday.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
