Prince William said ‘you don’t mess with your grandmother’ after wedding clash with Queen

Prince William reportedly clashed with his grandmother the Queen over his 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in central London.

The 39 year old royal, who celebrated his ten year wedding anniversary with Kate earlier this year, was said to have found himself in a dispute against the Monarch over his choice of clothing during his big day.

And according to the Express, he was ultimately forced to back down and wear what the Queen wanted him to, which was the red tunic of the Irish Guards.

And in a throwback interview just months after his televised nuptials, the father of three admitted, "you don't mess with your grandmother".


Speaking in an interview with ABC in 2012, William said: "What I really wanted to wear was the Irish Guards frock coat.

"We had a couple of discussions on this matter, but, as I learnt growing up, you don't mess with your grandmother. What she says goes."

William ended up succumbing to the Queen's wishes as he wore the red tunic of the Irish Guards on his big day.

Despite the wedding attire clash, William was supported by the Queen during other matters regarding his wedding.

In a separate interview in 2012, he said of the guest list: "I was given a list in the first meeting of 777 names and not one of them I knew.

"It was a bit daunting, and it was like, that seems to be the guest list sorted – no room for friends or family.

"I wasn't too happy about it, so I rang [the Queen] for a bit of moral support and a bit of backup. She said, 'don't be so ridiculous, get rid of the list, and start from your friends'."

William also broke royal tradition by having a maid of honour and a best man.

Ten years later, William and Kate are now proud parents of three children, George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and three year old Louis.

The happy family were spotted at Heathrow earlier this week as they prepared to jet off for their half-term holiday.

However, despite their trip together, it won't be long before the Cambridge family won't be able to travel together due to the unwritten rule that protects the future of the monarchy.

Prince George will be required to fly separately from his father William when he turns 12.

This is because William and George are second and third in line to the throne, and so the rule is that they travel separately in case anything tragic happens en-route.
