Queen helped William and Kate rip up the royal rulebook when they got married

When Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot back in 2011, their wedding was watched by approximately 26 million Brits.

And despite the pair sticking to a number of royal traditions during the day, it’s been reported that behind the scenes, they wanted to “do things their own way”.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl explained: “Initially Buckingham Palace had drawn up a very extensive guest list, I think over 700 names of Heads of State, Kings and Queens around the world.”

Royal reporter Roya Nikkhah also added: “[William] then went to the Queen and said ‘Is this really the way it’s going to be?’

“And she said, ‘No rip that up! Invite who you want.’”
