So, there has to be at least one thing which won’t go according to plan. Be it one of the guests gets very drunk or the ring is too small, or a horse freaks out.

Mishaps can be inevitable, so the most important thing is to enjoy your big day regardless of what happens.

2. Prince Charles messed up his vows during the wedding ceremony. Instead of promising to give Diana his ‘worldly goods’ he said ‘thy goods’ which doesn’t really make any sense.

3. Diana called Charles by the wrong name during their nuptials. Instead of calling him by his real name, Charles Philip Arthur George, she called him Philip Charles. Close enough!
