Like the time Princess Diana said the wrong name at the altarMore
Apparently, Prince William only had a half hour of sleep before his wedding to Kate Middleton, and was completely exhausted the entire day. Why? A brutal combination of nerves and screaming fans camped outside his house.
'They were singing and cheering all night long, so the excitement of that, the nervousness of me and everyone singing, I slept for about half an hour,' he said. Fortunately, William managed to get through his wedding day without falling asleep.
Queen Elizabeth II was given the Fringe Tiara (made in 1919 for Queen Mary) to wear when she married Prince Philip in 1947—and it broke the morning of her wedding.
'The Fringe Tiara was given to Queen Elizabeth on her wedding day, and the hairdresser broke it," royal jeweller House of Garrard tells MarieClaire.com. 'On that day, they had it 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!'
The tiara clearly survived the snafu, because Elizabeth's daughter Princess Anne wore it on her wedding day as well. (FYI, the piece can also be worn as a necklace.)
