Massive Royal Wedding Mishaps You Never Knew About
We tend to associate the people of royal status with perfection because of the image they often exude, but at the end of the day, they are human too! As such, even royals can’t avoid the unforeseen complications that happen in everyday life. There’s a lot of planning that goes into a wedding to avoid such blunders, but sometimes these things are out of our control. Here are 20 royal wedding fails you probably never even knew happened!
20. Horsing Around at William and Kate’s Wedding
Oddly enough, not many people remember this happening even though it sounds like it would’ve caused quite the stir! A frightened horse from the Household Cavalry could not be calmed as Prince William and Kate traveled to Buckingham Palace. The horse was likely spooked by the large crowds when it threw its rider off and bolted past the newlyweds. The dismounted rider tried to wrangle the horse in by grabbing its reins and pulling it off to the side, but it escaped once again and ran off towards Whitehall until it was finally stopped by Horseguards.
19. Queen Elizabeth’s Tiara Broke
Queen Elizabeth II suffered a last minute crisis on the morning of her wedding day back in 1947 when her tiara broke! It was the Fringe Tiara, famously made in 1919 for Queen Mary. In an interview with Marie Claire, royal jeweler House of Garrard said: “The Fringe Tiara was given to Queen Elizabeth on her wedding day, and the hairdresser broke it. On that day, they had police escorted to the House of Garrard workshops. We fixed the Tiara that morning, had it sent back to Queen Elizabeth, and then she got married in it. You don’t expect the royals to have those sorts of mix-ups, but they do!”
