The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate and William are married since eight years now. They had the eyes of the world on them for their royal wedding.
Prince William and Kate Middleton married in 2011 in their unforgettable royal wedding at Westminster Abbey. At the time, it was nothing less than the most important seasonal affair.
Prince Harry was best man for his brother’s nuptials, and had many duties to fulfil. That included his touching best man’s speech. However, one of his cheekier ideas can be spied in the official wedding portrait from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s big day.
So, what was that all about?
Royal author Marcia Moody, in her book: ‘Kate: A Biography’, revealed how Harry had a plan to keep the small bridesmaids quiet for the long and momentous day. She wrote: “There was a secret appearance from an extra guest to keep the little bridesmaids quite entertained”.

Ms Moody also recounts how Camilla later said: “Harry pulled this wiggly worm out of his pocket in the carriage to keep them amused. Eliza loved it so much that she wouldn’t let go”.

“And, it even made the official photographs. Can you believe it? She was holding on to my finger. But, in her other hand was that worm”.
The pink toy can be seen in the official wedding portrait in little Eliza Lopes’ hand.
She is the daughter of Laura Parker Bowles and her husband Harry Lopes. This makes Eliza the granddaughter of the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. In their younger days, Laura and Prince William started off on the wrong foot as stepbrother and -sister. As, they initially had ‘terrible fights’.
However, they put the past behind them. At Laura’s wedding in 2006, it was the first family occasion that Kate was invited to as she made her entry into Prince William’s royal life.
