Prince William reportedly wanted to be married in his Household Calvary blue frock coat which he and his brother Harry have worn on many royal engagements and events before. But Sunday Times Royal Correspondent Roya Nikkhah revealed the Queen stepped in and denied his wish which was the only one that William did not get his way on. Instead, the future king was told to wear his Irish Guard uniform as he was the Colonel.  

Speaking on the BBC documentary Royal Wedding: A Day to Remember which looked back at Prince William and Kate’s wedding ten years on, Ms Nikkhah recalled several wishes from both Kate and William for their wedding. 

She told the programme: “Yeah military has been everything to William and to Harry.

“William has said that was quite keen to get married in his Household Cavalry blue frock coat but the Queen said no.

“[She said] you’re wearing your Irish Guard uniform, you are the new Colonel of the Irish Guards.

“And that’s the one thing he didn’t get his way on and he deferred to granny.”

The hour-long BBC documentary, Royal Wedding: A Day to Remember, looked back at the wedding by interviewing guests and employees behind the scenes.

The programme spoke to former prime minister David Cameron who attended the ceremony in 2011. 

The BBC show also spoke to the former Archbishop of Canterbury and members of the public who recalled their experiences of the big day.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked their ten-year anniversary on April 29 and celebrated privately as a family.


But the royal couple released a video of themselves enjoying time outdoors with their three children and thanked well-wishers for their kind messages.

The 39-second clip was posted on their Twitter account and showed the family at their Norfolk residence, Anmer Hall, and on sand dunes at a nearby beach.

The video was accompanied by a personal message which read: “Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary.

“We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family.”

The Cambridges also released several photos from a shoot at Kensington Palace to mark the occasion. 

Soon after their wedding, the royal couple soon got to work and met with Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.

Kate and William also attended the London Olympics the year after and were seen cheering on athletes from the stands. 

The pair became parents for the first time in 2013 when they gave birth to Prince George.
