After dating for eight years, Prince William and Kathrine Middleton tied the knot on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London. Their marriage was widely publicized and watched by millions of people. The royal wedding was nothing less than a fairy tale.
Recently, ITV’s new documentary, The Day Will and Kate Got Married, was released and featured everything that happened behind the scenes of this royal affair. It is also worth pointing out that one of the highlights of the wedding was a tiered wedding cake.
Fiona Cairns, who led the team behind Prince William and Kathrine Middleton’s wedding cake in 2011, also appeared in the documentary explaining the behind-the-scenes difficulties getting the cake to the Buckingham Palace Photo Gallery. The team had to remove a door to put the cake inside. And when Queen Elizabeth II came to visit the team as they put the finishing touches on dessert, she made an unexpected remark about wrestling.
As reported by PEOPLE, Cairns said: “I remember she said, ‘I heard you were dismantling my house’, and I said to her, ‘Well, we had to open a door to the house. piece below for the trolley to pass with the cake. But everything was put back in place so in the end it was good.
The tiered wedding cake was a traditional fruit cake adorned with 900 leaves and floral touches and topped with the couple’s number. The huge cake even lasted beyond the wedding reception. Pieces of the fruit cake were said to have been served at the three christenings of William and Kate’s children, most recently for Prince Louis in 2018.
As for the documentary, it came out because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this month, April 29. It was a special documentary that was released to take a trip down memory lane from the big event.
