Funny Highlights of Royal Wedding – William & Kate 2011

Updated on August 4, 2011


*•.¸♥¸•* *  Oh… wasn’t it a gorgeous wedding. I hope you were able to watch it and if you didn’t, well I hope you have seen the photo’s. A lot happened in London on the day of The Royal Wedding and there were very funny moments too – which I share below.


1. The Clergyman in Church doing Cartwheels.

See video clip below - A friend of mine said, she was glad he had trousers on underneath. The Cartwheel was done after the wedding. So, he must have been happy the event went well because I am sure he and others had worked hard in preparation.


2. Frowning Bridesmaid

Grace Van Custem

A 3-year-old bridesmaid and daughter of Hugh van Cutsem, a close friend of Prince William - according to Vanity Fair. She covered her ears (bottom Left in photo) and because I was watching it Live, I am sure it was because of the noisy planes that flew over the Palace.

I have been to Air Shows and know how noisy those planes are. Grace is also Prince William's goddaughter and the great-great-great-granddaughter of William Waldorf Astor.


3. Dancing Policeman

A policeman entertained the crowds. I think he was excited even though when interviewed he said he was in full control. Anyway, it was nice to see a Policeman let his hair down a bit.

4. The Aston Martin

Harry and William have a great sense of humour and no one ever saw this stint coming. However, it was nice to see and everyone laughed at the “Learner” sign in front and the number plate “JustWed” behind it.

The vintage 1969 Aston Martin Volante was a birthday gift from the Queen to Prince Charles on his 21st Birthday. In the photo below, William is looking up because his colleagues from the RAF are flying in a helicopter above him – escorting him to Clarence House. Nice touch.

........ and they lived Happily Ever After.

Thanks for reading. Do you have any favourite moments of the wedding?

      All the people in the world had watched this wedding. Prince William and Kate Middleton as the perfect couple. I really enjoy the royal wedding through my television. Well done, my friend. Rated up!

      That bridesmaid was Camilla's granddaughter. She definitely was "not amused".

      **anglnwu - thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed it. Maybe a DVD will be released and people can buy copies. Take care.

      ** DeBorrah - I hope their love abounds too. Thanks so much for sharing your comments. I like the way you described them "courageous and gregarious couple!"

      Best Wishes x

      ** Staypos - Thanks. Glad America aired it. You guys must have had to wake up so early though. lol.

      ** Nancy - Hi... True words. The first time I saw William and Harry pull out in the Rolls Royce, in their uniforms, I said "Ding Dong". lol. Kate has had a long time to prepare, even though some say the Royal family were vetting her. I'm just glad the Wedding went well, as there were threats of Islamist protests.

      Thanks for sharing your comments. :)

      It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding. William and Harry are handsome men and Diana would be so proud of them. They are fun loving and seem to be very close. I think those two have humbled the Royal Family.

      Kate and William appear to be very much in love and she seems to be dealing with her celebrity quite well. I believe she will be a grand addition to the royal family. I loved the way William looked at her and whispered, “You look beautiful.” I wish them well…

      Enjoyed the article as usual... xx

      Terrific hub! Thanks for sharing a unique and fun aspect of the Royal Wedding :-) I thoroughly enjoyed it and must say our coverage commentary here in America was great as well. The ceremony reflected the magnificence and splendor of God’s creation - Marriage!

      May God's Grace and Blessing be upon them :-)

      All the best!

      Lady E, Fantastic! What beautiful, exciting highlights from the "Royal Wedding Festivities!” I am sure it was a sight to see up close and personal! I pray that this is a growing, lasting and joyous union for Prince William & Princess Kathryn… The Lord knows that they will be living under the scrutiny of the press! All the best to the courageous and gregarious couple! They make a lovely pair! I pray that they are truly “happily ever after….”

      So nice of you to share these excerpts! I especially like the priest turning cartwheels... The kiss on the balcony was a marvelous expression of their momentarily historical expression of FREEDOM! No doubt they are most exuberant still from the ceremony? I pray their Love abounds! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! Love & Hugs to you as well!

      Hi Lady E! One of my favorite moments is when kate joined William after being escorted by her father and he told her "you look beautiful." Also when little Grace covered her ears on the balcony. Thanks for sharing the wedding with us. God bless!

      There was a very happy feeling about the wedding and your funny moments supports the over all sense of joy that people seemed to be sharing.

      I for one enjoyed watching the ceremony and thought that the choir was sensational.

      I was expecting someone to do a hub about the wedding and am glad that you have produced one that shows something different from the day.

      Really enjoyed your hub, well done and thanks for sharing.

      Hello LadyE. Thank you for the beautiful memories. We need some lighthearted humor and plenty of love in what often seems a cruel, heartless world. I hope they have a long and happy marriage, and does not turn out like the marriage of his parents.
