Storm Callum was certainly an uninvited guest – but it was all rather entertaining watching wedding-goers make their way into St George’s Chapel without losing a fascinator.

The country held its breath as six-year-old pageboy Louis de Givenchy lost his footing. But thankfully the youngster was quickly back on his feet.

Prince George had mega lols in the chapel

We’re not sure what it was but something tickled the young prince, who appeared to be having a whale of the time with his fellow bridesmaids and page boys during the service.

What was so funny, George?

The model, a childhood friend of Princess Eugenie, walked into the wedding wearing a top hat and tails.

The internet’s verdict: YES.

The dress showed Princess Eugenie’s back and there was a special reason behind it

Unless you were looking really closely you might not have noticed anything.

But Princess Eugenie wore a dress with a low back that showed off a scar from major surgery she had as a child.

She had previously hinted she might do this, telling ITV’s This Morning it was important to “show people your scars”.

Meanwhile, other royal watchers noticed that Jack Brooksbank rather struggled when it came to putting the gold wedding band on his bride’s finger.

It prompted some smiles from the couple, with the princess then collecting herself and helping the groom to slide the ring on to her finger.

Sarah Ferguson’s choice of hat divided opinion on social media.

Some likened the large winged bow to the golden snitch from the Harry Potter books.
