Bit over dramatized. Diana's version was she concentration on looking at who had attended.

They walked slowly up the aisle like other people.
Diana's long train had to be constantly straightened out added to the slow walk.

I remember watching the wedding and they did mention that consideration had to be made for Earl Spencer who had a stroke in 1978 and wasn't too steady on his feet. With this in mind, its very possible that they took their time and while doing that, it gave Diana the chance to check out who was where in the crowd and adjusting the train wouldn't be so obvious. Its all good.

The Lullingstone Silk Farm in Dorset, England produced enough silk to be included in Diana's veil.

I remember hearing that her father was very much leaning on her while walking down, not that they had to walk slower or anything. And I believe I saw them kind of sliding to one side at some point or that might have just been her train.
