He introduced her as “my wife, Mrs. Wales,” to the reception guests, called her a “wonderful girl,” and couldn’t wait to escape so they both could sit in bathrobes and watch the wedding on TV.
These are just a few of the royal couple’s intimate secrets now revealed in the new July issue of Vanity Fair magazine, out tomorrow.
The cover story gives us more glimpses into the down-to-earth lives of the future heir and the wife that he romantically described to his wedding guests, as the woman with whom he was “in love” at the reception.
This will be the first future king who friends say, sees his wife as completely “equal.” William totally approved when Kate chose to delete the word “obey” from her vows.
She was also the one who kept her father from crying as the pair walking down the aisle at Westminster Abbey. “Please, Daddy, don’t cry. It will set me off, too,” she apparently begged. She made no flubups at the alter reciting her vows thanks to months of voice coaching from elocution expert Anthony Gordon Lennox, according to the mag.
She’s also Prince William’s perfectly economical mate. The Prince was so concerned with his country’s economic recession, that he and Kate insisted that most of the Royal family take buses from Buckingham Palace to the wedding, instead of limousines. Finger food like miniature Yorkshire puddings and Scottish smoked salmon were served at the wedding lunch instead of a full sit-down meal, to save money.
But the best part of the day for the bride and bridegroom was when they drove back in Prince Charles‘ Aston Martin to Clarence House, where they were staying and changed into fluffy, terry-cloth robes.
They watched all the wedding’s events on TV. “It was just the two of them, and they were so excited to actually see it on the television,” a Palace official revealed.
It was William’s brother Harry however, who brought tears to William and Kate’s eyes, at the evening dinner. “He… said how proud their mother [Princess Diana] would have been,” and described how “their romance had inspired him,” and described her as “a little sister.”
The perfect wedding evening ended in fireworks at 2:30 am. Kate had truly been welcomed into the family — William’s father, Prince Charles, said they “were really lucky to have a daughter like her.”
Prince William apparently wants her to be known as Princess Kate — could anything be more of a fairytale?
