Being a Royal isn’t all about the polo matches or the high-class tea. It is actually something having a lot of power along with responsibilities.
That’s why there are some very important traditions that should be followed during a royal wedding.
If you are thinking that just wearing a high profiled designer dress would work, we must tell you there is more to it. The Royal UK has gathered some of the most important Royal traditions which are followed at each and every Royal wedding.
THE BRIDE MUST AND ONLY WEAR WHITE ON HER WEDDING DAY.
This trend can be traced back to Queen Victoria, who wore a white gown when she married Prince Albert on February 10, 1840. On her Royal wedding day, Queen Victoria opted for a white lace and silk-satin gown that she designed herself.
THERE IS ALWAYS FIRST A ROYAL ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT.
In the Royal Family, things like these just don’t go out. There is always a formal procedure that is followed. The Queen giver her permission and only then does it go out as an official statement. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal announcement was our favourite yet.
