When Prince William said yes to Catherine nine years ago, he was apparently quite excited. A lip reader then revealed what the heir to the throne whispered to his father-in-law in front of the altar.
It has been nine years since Prince William, 38, married Duchess Catherine, 38, at Westminster Abbey. The eyes of the whole world were then on the heir to the throne and his bride – and on Michael Middleton, who led his daughter to the altar. He must have been just as nervous as the bride and groom. To relieve the tension, Prince William tried, according to a lip reader, to cheer up the situation.
Prince William joked before saying yes to Duchess Catherine
Video recordings show that Prince Michael whispers something to Middleton. In a report for the Associated Press news agency, lip reader Tina Lannin revealed what could have been said. Accordingly, William is said to have joked about the wedding with 2000 guests on site and an estimated two billion TV viewers: “It should really only be a small family thing.” Certainly not just a cheer for Michael Middleton, but also for William. His nerves must also have fluttered back then. The English love story Prince William + Kate Middleton (24028)
Romantic words between Kate and William
William is also said to have said something to his bride at the time that Lannister could read on his lips. After the expert’s analysis, the royal complimented his future wife: “You look beautiful.” Royal author Marcia Moody wrote the same thing in her book “Kate: A Biography”.
With these beautiful words to his wife, Prince William evidently did the same as his father. Prince Charles, 71, is said to have whispered the same words in his bride’s ear when he married Princess Diana († 36) in 1981. And Prince Harry, 36, also reportedly whispered to his Meghan in 2018 about how “stunning” she looks.
