It was the "wedding of the century", applauded by two million people in London and watched by 750 million viewers worldwide. The wedding of Prince Charles, 33, and Diana Spencer, 20, had to meet the fantasy of the princely wedding in every way, with a meringue dress, 3,500 handpicked guests, and greetings to the crowd from a golden coach. Everything in the ceremony of July 29, 1981, was precise. This will not prevent unforeseen events, hiccups and slippages.

A dress to retouch

With its puffed sleeves, pearl pearls and 16th century lace, Diana's dress, signed by the creators, the Welshman David Emanuel and his ex-wife Elizabeth, was one of the most copied to the world. But, and we know it less, also one of the most retouched, as the Sunday Express relates. No doubt nervous, the future Princess of Wales had indeed lost weight, 14 centimeters of waist circumference in a few weeks , during which the creators multiplied the needle strokes. So much so that it was necessary to proceed to the last seams on the bustier even as Diana was wearing it on the day of the ceremony.

Spilled perfume

Suddenly, it's the drama: just before entering Saint-Paul's Cathedral, in London, Lady Diana spills part of her perfume bottle , Some flowers from Houbigant Paris, while she just wanted to spray it on the wrists. An awkwardness revealed by Barbara Daily, who made her up that day, to People magazine. The latter advises him to walk into the nave with one hand elegantly placed on the fabric to hide it. In the photos of the wedding, it is not to avoid stepping on her skirt that Lady Diana grabs the fabric. But well to hide a stain that would have made… stain (sorry) on television.

Mixed names

Charles and Diana's exchange of vows is historic, for two reasons. First, because that the couple decide that Diana will not swear "obedience" to her husband, as it has been customary until now. But also, because the Princess of Wales makes a (small) error, by reversing the order of ( many) first names of her fiancé , as the Sunday Express relates. Because it would have been necessary to say "Charles Philip Arthur George, I take you for husband" and not "Philip Charles Arthur George". This will give the opportunity to the prince Andrew to address this little joke to the bride: "In fact, it is my father that you married."
