Divers marked the Royal Wedding yesterday by spending 12 hours underwater in a Staffordshire quarry.

A group from the Gildenburgh Water centre passed up the traditional street party and descended on Dosthill Quarry instead.

Over the course of 12 hours, a number of divers dropped into ‘Dozzi’ and took It in turns to toast the Prince and his new wife.

Also on site were ‘free swimming, snorkelling and jumping in the royal moat’, with organisers arranging an ‘underwater treasure hunt for crowns and tiaras.’

Attendees who wanted to stay dry were able to watch the wedding on a large screen erected on site.
