1990s: Difficult times

The 1990s brought huge sadness for the Royals. The Queen dubbed 1992 her "Annus Horribilis" after three of her children's marriages disintegrated and Windsor Castle caught fire. In 1997, the year of Diana's death, ITN made the broadcast for the first time. The Queen's message first appeared on the internet in 1998. (Picture: 1992)
