The amount of pressure felt by those who manage the Royal Weddings can tell you what it takes to pull it off. Teams of various departments [technical, transportation, and others] start their rehearsals for the event a few weeks before the marriage, a single mistake and BOOM! The Royal Family's respect and name would be at stake.
The entire world eyes the event, international media covers the special day and hundreds of cameras follow every movement of the Royal Families. Chances to commit an error and NOT getting caught are rare. No matter how hard the rehearsals were, the reality always challenges you, and it has happened a lot of time in history.
Have a look!
The kind of mishaps that happened at the Royal Wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles was usual at that time, but when you look at them now, it seems as if the destiny tried its best to hint that this marriage is doomed.
You can blame it on jitters, but it can't be undone that Princess Diana took the wrong name of her husband during the vows. She called her husband Prince Philip Charles, instead of Charles Philip.
It is reported, the dress which turned heads as Diana walked on the aisle wasn't as perfect as it might have looked on the television. Diana accidentally spilt the entire bottle of perfume on her wedding dress and was suggested to walk holding the particular part of fabric so cameras wouldn't be able to spot stains.
The jitters before the wedding day could take hold of you. Like mother; like son, Prince William could only sleep for half an hour before the big day, and it was visible on his face. He even confessed the same in a post-wedding interview.
When Prince William and Kate Middleton were on their way to Buckingham Palace, one of the horses in the procession was spooked as it bucked it off his rider and started to run around the street.
The Daily Mail reports, Kate Middleton had asked the ring-maker to make it smaller because she had lost a lot of weight before the marriage. However, maybe Kate forgot to tell the exact size of the ring, the whole world witnessed Prince William struggled to get the ring on her finger.
Will and Kate were photobombed by a little bridesmaid at the balcony when they came out to kiss as part of the Royal Wedding.
Even if you might be binge-watching The Crown on Netflix, you might not know that Queen Elizabeth II's tiara broke on her wedding day. She was gifted tiara in the morning of her D-day, and hairdresser accidentally cut it, reports Marie Claire.
Do you believe that British Royal Family is the only one?
In 2011, when Danish Princess got married to Alexander Johannsmann, she forgot to carry her bouquet. The wedding ran 10 minutes late as it took some time to get her the new one.
A night before the Royal Wedding of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Spain in 2004, the reports came out that Prince Vittorio Emanuele, (then) the heir to Spanish throne had walloped his cousin/rival Duke Amedeo on the stairs of a palace. A royal fist-fight before the Royal Wedding.
When Princess Victoria was getting married to Daniel Westing and came the time to exchange their rings, both of them fumbled the jewellery, reported Daily Mail.
Before Marie arrived in France to marry King Louis XVI, the palace designed her dress based on the estimated size. It turned out to be the biggest mistake as the outfit didn't fit. The suit was altered, and Marie somehow walked down the aisle.
We know it'd be
That's all, folks!
