Royal wedding: – The detail that went around the world

There are few things that scream more luxury and opulence than a royal wedding. Celebrity guest lists, swineherd dresses and tear-soaked wedding ceremonies are self-described ingredients when hosting a royal wedding.

But not everything goes as planned – not even when it comes to the royals. Over the years, both famous and unknown people have been responsible for many a royal scandal at various royal weddings. Nor has our own royal family been spared the royal wedding scandals.

Protects Kate: – Can get very angry

We go back to May 2004. The then Crown Prince Felipe (53) of Spain gets the journalist Letizia (48) in a wedding circus of dimensions. Elleville 1200 guests participated in the festivities, including our own princess Märtha Louise (49).

She stole the headlines in a bright yellow dress designed by Wenche Lyche. However, the choice of dress did not appeal to the Spanish people or the press, who described it as both daring and daring.

A Spanish newspaper even named it the Crown Prince’s most daring wedding.


– Was a problem since I was born

– The dress was slaughtered. It was called both gruesome and vulgar, and really became the wedding’s big talking point. It is undeniably special, and a typical love-hate dress. The princess showed once again that she is brave and dare to go her own way, and her basically good idea was that it should be a tribute to Spain, remembers See and Hear royal house expert Caroline Vagle.

Vagle further says that the princess has always been good at fronting Norwegian design abroad, but she must admit that this dress is not her personal favorite.

Married to reality participant

Let’s jump on to our neighboring country Sweden.

Admittedly, it was not the dress – but rather the choice of life partner – that attracted attention when Queen Silvia (77) and King Carl Gustaf’s (74) only son Carl Philip (41) had their beloved Sofia (36) in the Castle Church in Stockholm in the summer of 2015.

The 36-year-old’s past as a glamor model and “Paradise Hotel” participant filled the newspaper front pages, and many wondered if Sofia Kristina Hellqvist would really become a princess of Sweden.

The couple met a lot of resentment and agitation, something the princess has told a lot about afterwards. Today, however, she is a welcome member of the Swedish royal family, and recently they became the parents of her third son, who has been named Julian Herbert Folke.

Steal the show

The scandals have not exactly been in short supply in the British royal family, either. April 29 marks ten years since Prince William (38) and Duchess Kate (39) became husband and wife. The prince’s wedding was marked with pomp and splendor – as only the British do.

A staggering 1,900 guests were invited to the lavish wedding, including the Norwegian royal couple. Hundreds of thousands of Britons had lined up in front of Buckingham Palace to watch the newlyweds come out on the balcony and kiss each other.

In retrospect, however, it is the flower girl Grace van Cutsem people remember best from the big moment. The four-year-old leaned over the edge of the balcony, kept her ears closed and did not look any happier as she stood in front of all those present in the streets of London.


The wild luxury life of the princely family

However, Kate and Williams’ fairytale wedding also created headlines of the more conflict-filled type. Prince Williams’ aunt Duchess Sarah (61) had to stand over the festivities – because she was not actually invited. “Fergie” did not hide her disappointment when she visited Oprah Winfrey’s talk show the same year.

– That was hard. Because I wanted to be there with my girls, to decorate them and go together as a family, said the Duchess, who instead chose to travel to Thailand while the royal circus was going on.

Name loss

When the stage was set for the century’s princely wedding between Prince Charles (72) and Princess Diana in London in 1981, 750 million people watched on television. Therefore, there were probably also many who realized that 19-year-old Diana Spencer stumbled in the words when she was to pronounce the prince’s full name.

“I’m taking you, Philip Charles Arthur George as my husband,” Diana said, confusing the prince’s first two names. His name is Charles Philip, and not the other way around. The name loss was also captured on film by CBS, and is out for public viewing on YouTube.

By the way, did you know that Prince Charles’ then mistress and current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles (73), was also present at the wedding? She stood along the aisle – to Princess Diana’s great fear.


– Dumped her over the phone

Recently, Diana revealed that she was scouting for Camilla Parker Bowles as she walked down the church floor arm in arm with Prince Charles.

– I knew she was there, of course. I looked for her. Then, as I walked down the aisle, I caught sight of her, in a gray-pale pill-box hat, I saw everything, her son Tom standing on a chair. It is a living memory, even today, Diana recalled in an interview in 1991.

Ration coupons

As is well known, the marriage between Prince Charles and Princess Diana went down the drain in the 1990s. He later resumed his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, and on April 9, 2005, the prince remarried – albeit far more toned down than 24 years earlier.


Reveals Duchess Camilla’s pig animal habits

In fact, Queen Elizabeth (94) dropped out of attending the bourgeois ceremony at Windsor City Hall – reportedly due to her role as head of the church.

The mother of the groom was not completely absent, however. She attended the religious ceremony held in the chapel at Windsor Castle afterwards.

Queen Elizabeth herself married Prince Philip (99) in a grand ceremony at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947. The ravages of war still plagued Europe and Britain at this time, and the queen actually had to pay for the wedding dress with ration coupons.


This is how she is completely private

Clothes were scarce, and thus Princess Elizabeth, like everyone else, had to collect coupons before she could marry the prince.

When Prince Harry (36) and Duchess Meghan (39) got married in Windsor in May 2018, they generously handed out wedding invitations. Harry invited his ex-girlfriends Cressida Bonas (32) and Chelsy Davy (35) to the festivities – and both showed up!
