April 29, 2011 is a date Kate Middleton and Prince William will never forget. However, the heir to the throne would have liked to make an important decision on his wedding day!
On April 29, 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton said to each other “yes” in front of the whole world. If the latter was nicknamed “Waity Katy” because of the many years to wait for the marriage proposal of her prince, the son of King Charles III, he simply had the will not to repeat the same mistakes made by his father. Indeed, he wanted to preserve his future wife from the media harassment after seeing how much his mother Lady Diana had suffered at the time. During this long-awaited ceremony, Kate Middleton and Prince William were immersed in the heart of a fairy tale. The Duchess of Cambridge had taken care of respect traditions down to the bottom of her wedding dress.
For his part, the current Prince of Wales did not really have a say, because his grandmother Elizabeth II had every intention of overseeing everything. As the magazine reveals Hello ! based on an interview given by William to the MailOnline in 2011, Her Majesty didn’t let him choose his own costume for the big day.

“I wanted to decide what to wear on my wedding day,” William had confided to journalist Robert Hardman. If it should be the least of things, the prince seemed to have forgotten that he had Elizabeth II for grandmother! And for good reason, the son of King Charles III had just been appointed Honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards two months earlier. Since this was the highest status awarded to Prince William, the queen was keen for him to marry Kate Middleton in her red and gold uniform. And when the sovereign wanted something, we executed… Yes, my colonel!
