The couple who wed in July 1981 were posing for photos when the Queen interrupted. Diana’s wedding dress designer, David Emmanuel, explained the Queen had asked him to find out when the photography session would be finished. He said the Queen was hungry and eager to attend the wedding reception.
Mr Emanuel told Yahoo’s Royal Box: “Back to Buckingham Palace then you’re there for the photographs.
“Patrick Litchfield was doing the pictures. The train in, the train out, the train back in.
“I remember Her Majesty The Queen coming to me and she said ‘Mr Emmanuel, have you had a glass of champagne?’
“The whole Royal Family were having a sip of champagne and I said ‘no’.
“In a second I was given a glass of champagne.
“That was a kind gesture.
“Then she came back to me later on and she said: ‘Are they nearly finished?’
“I said: ‘No, they’re taking pictures on the other side of the balcony. Do you want me to find out?
“She said: ‘Well, yes. I’m hungry’.”
He added: “The Queen wanted to have the bridal breakfast or bridal brunch.
“So I had to go to Patrick Lichfield and said ‘How long are you going to be because Her Majesty needs to know?’
“And we had a giggle about that.”
