Yes, Peter Phillips and one of the bridesmaids adjusted the train after the curtsey, but later on just past the tomb of the unknown warrior, the newlyweds stopped for Andrew to retrieve his gloves etc and Sarah asked an official in red uniform to sort out the train, which was at an angle. The official then went back and had a word with one of the clergy who then straightened it.
I'm not sure this link will work, but if you go on youtube and search for

I think little "mis steps" bring humanity back to a wedding ceremony. In the end it is about that young man and that young lady wanting to engage in marriage, no more, no less.

I am happy no any of these royal brides are one of those monster brideszillas who terrorise all and everyone, the groom included, to have the "perfect" wedding. My impression is that all royal weddings are -of course- well organized but no one flips or freaks out when something is not entirely according the blueprint. We are all human.

When Princess Margaret Rose married Antony Armstrong-Jones in May of 1960, did Margaret say part of her vows incorrectly?

Oh dear lord, really Sarah?! But that little faux pas set the tone for future gaucheries to come, I'm afraid....

Oh you have got to be kidding!

Going on that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were doomed beyond redemption with no hope of a divorce for sixty years and still counting:
  • the bride forgot to get her pearls
  • the bride forgot to have her tiara checked for it's big day
  • the bride forgot where they put the bridal bouquets

why would this be todo with the bride? Surely its up to the staff to keep an eye on the bouquet etc? I know that Q Elizabeth's tiara was found to have a crack in it but I can't remember what happened then, did she wear another one.

I seem to remember, maybe I'm wrong, Sara stumbling and saying "Andrew Albert Christian Christian Edward!"?

The tiara snapped when being put on. But fortunately Gurrards, the jewellers who made it for Mary, sent a jeweller over. He made a hasty repair. You can see the gap in the wedding portraits.

sorry, thank you for this. I saw older posts later (bout of insomnia due to ill health) and saw that the tiara had been hasitily repaired! I would have gottene a different one, myself, but it all worked out fine. They have had a long happy marriage.

A little malfunction happened with the diadem worn by Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy during her marriage with Prince Guillaume de Nassau, the Hereditary Grand-Duke of Luxembourg.

The diadem as it was
