7 Details About Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Wedding You Probably Never Knew

Lynne M. Centeno

Can you believe it’s been almost ten years since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey? While it seems like only yesterday, the ceremony details are quite a blur. For example, did you know Middleton did her own makeup? Or that Prince William wore a sweat-proof ensemble?

Keep scrolling for seven things you (probably) never knew about the royal wedding.

The nuptials took place at Westminster Abbey, which is rather well-known for its stuffy interior. So, the royal family enlisted tailors Kashket & Partners to custom design sweat-proof versions of Prince William and Prince Harry’s military uniforms.

Middleton’s bouquet featured five different types of flowers: lily-of-the-valley, sweet William, ivy, myrtle and hyacinth. Both the sweet William and myrtle had a special meaning—while sweet William paid tribute to the bride’s now-husband (duh),

Keeping your hands clean has become a full-time job. From the washing to the glove-wearing to the sanitizing, it’s likely a new hobby that’s always on your mind. When you can’t get to a sink for proper washing, hand sanitizer has been a lifesaver, and we’ve noticed so many brands and companies have pivoted to manufacturing their own versions. It’s especially nice when the tried-and-true options are constantly out of stock.
