Cast your mind back to 2011 for a moment, if you will, and relive the glamorous and historic moment of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding at London’s West Minster Abbey: as rather excitingly, a lip reader has now finally decoded the sweet thing that Prince William said to Kate Middleton at the aisle.
With a variety of celebrities in attendance and the whole world watching, Kate made her way down the aisle with her father Michael Middleton in a stunning McQueen dress. As she reached centre stage, greeting Prince William, the two inaudibly exchanged words briefly before making their vows.Given that we were so intrigued and engrossed in the ceremony – and we weren’t close enough to be in hearing range, sadly – we missed what exactly the Duke said to his bride at the time – but professional lip reader Tina Lannin now claims to know the answer.
According to Tina, who spoke to CBS News about it, the words exchanged were not “What’s for dinner?” Or “Did you see the Beckhams?” but instead “You look lovely. You look beautiful.” Excuse us while we just feel all the feels!As he turned to future father-in-law Michael, Prince William apparently also joked “We’re supposed to have just a small family affair!”
As the ceremony came to a close and the two newlyweds headed for their carriage, Tina further revealed that the two exchanged a sweet conversation of reassurance among all the adoring fans and spectators.In the carriage, the lip reader has theorised that William said, “I hope I remember…it’s mad! Oh my goodness it’s… really loudly here.” As they reached the balcony to wave at onlookers and share a kiss, William also said, “Alright? You’ll be okay?” to Kate, and she replied, “Yes”.Would it be weird to rewatch the wedding this weekend?!
