KATE Middleton and Prince William’s 2011 wedding appeared to have gone without a hitch, however, the Duchess of Cambridge forgot one very important thing on the big day.
Kate Middleton and Prince William tied the knot after an eight-year romance in 2011 at Westminster Abbey. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – who are now parents to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – had their wedding watched by millions around the world, and appeared to be a success from start to finish. While it may have seemed that way to a general member of the public, Kate is said to have snubbed the Queen by forgetting to follow royal protocol in the church, a royal expert has claimed.
In 2013 Netflix documentary “The Royals”, British etiquette expert William Henson revealed how Meghan Markle’s sister-in-law was expected to curtsy to Queen Elizabeth II on her way up the aisle, something she forgot to do on the day.
He explained: “The bride actually has to curtsy to the Queen when she gets to where the Queen is sitting, and Catherine Middleton forgot to do this when she was walking up the aisle.”
However, Mr Henson hinted the Duchess saved herself as she “did do it on the way out”.
Royal protocol at a royal wedding is "very important”, the documentary claims.
“Protocol is so important and that’s everything from who arrives when, the order they arrive in, obviously the bride is the last person to arrive, but the guest who arrives last is the Queen”, the royal expert revealed.
