Princess Diana said ‘wrong name’ at wedding and fans feared Kate would do same

Princess Diana reportedly got Prince Charles' name muddled up while reciting her wedding vows.

The late royal is said to have called her hubby-to-be "Philip" during the ceremony, according to the BBC.

In an article written 40 years ago, it was suggested the faux pas was down to wedding day jitters.

She is understood to have called the heir "Philip Charles" instead of "Charles Philip".

It states: "Wedding day nerves were apparent during the ceremony. Diana mixed up the Prince's names, calling him Philip Charles Arthur George, rather than Charles Philip."

And it seems as though Di wasn't the only one to get her lines wrong.

The BBC said Charles' nerves also got the better of him as he said "thy goods" rather than "my worldly goods" at the altar.

Fears of a repeat of their wedding woes grew ahead of their son Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.

The 1,900 guests and the billions watching worldwide on TV waited anxiously to hear if Kate got William Arthur Philip Louis’s names wrong – or if the Prince would forget to share all his worldly goods with her.

And, just to be safe, the Cambridge's reportedly brought a lawyer in case anyone objected to their marriage.

The Dean of Westminster Dr John Hall made the revelation ahead of the couple's tenth wedding anniversary on April 29.

He told the Daily Mail: "One of my colleagues said, 'You really do need to have a lawyer handy just in case', so we did.

"Even though we knew it was all going to be fine, we did actually have a lawyer waiting in the wings."

Dr Hall was the man who asked the wedding attendees: "If any man can show any just cause why they may not lawfully be joined together let him now speak, or else hereafter for ever hold his peace."

Fortunately for the happy couple, they managed to hold it together during the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, which went off without a hitch

After the ceremony, 500,000 well-wishers roared their approval outside the palace and along The Mall as the newlyweds exchanged their first kiss.

Many in the crowd shouted “kiss, kiss”, as the bride and groom appeared with their families.

And then, in a truly romantic moment, an RAF flypast swept towards the palace as the couple kissed for a second time.

A one-hour documentary, Royal Wedding: A Day to Remember, featuring the Cambridge's looking back at their life together, will air on the BBC on Friday.
