What Prince William said to Kate Middleton at the altar on their wedding day

On April 29, 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton married in a beautiful ceremony attended by well-wishers from all over the world.

The couple’s tender exchange of words and glances after Kate walked down the aisle in her flowing Alexander McQueen gown was one of the highlights of the ceremony for royal fans.

But, as the couple stood at the altar, what did William say to his new bride? In the 11 years since the ceremony, neither the Cambridges nor the Duke of Cambridge has confirmed what was said.

Lip readers who watched videos of the happy occasion, on the other hand, reported that William greeted Kate with the words: “You have a lovely appearance. You are stunning “as he adored her with a smile.

“We were supposed to have just a small family affair,” William reportedly joked to his new father-in-law.

As Kate walked down the aisle towards him and his best man, Prince Harry, the Prince didn’t look at her.

Harry, on the other hand, is said to have turned around and sweetly told his older brother, “She’s finally arrived. Well, I can tell you that she is stunning “According to author Marcia Moody’s book Kate: A Biography, published in 2013.

More than a million people lined the procession route to see Kate as she made her way to Westminster Abbey for the ceremony, which was officiated by the Most Reverend Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury at the time.

  1. I loved Princess Diana, and Prince William has lived up to her expectations, and now has a beautiful family that I love watching. He and Duchess Kate are so down to earth (as much as they can be) hopefully we’ll watch them grow for many, many years.
