We all know the unwritten rule when it comes to wedding days – the bride always gets to call the shots.
Anyone trying to take her on is, more often than not, fighting a losing battle.
Meticulously planned, every inch of the thread on every suit and every gown is accounted for with nothing left to chance.
A Royal wedding in particular is unlikely to see a bride-to-be get anything except what she wants.
But it appears not everything went perfectly to plan for Kate Middleton.
Ahead of their big day back in April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, a cat was let out of the bag.
It is claimed the leak led to tears at Buckingham Palace.
Fans across the globe were fascinated by every detail as Kate and Prince William tied the knot in the wedding of the century.
They wanted to know about the venue, the decorations, the reception, and of course the guest list – but there was one nugget of information Catherine wanted to keep to herself.
She had wanted the name of the designer behind her wedding dress to stay secret, until the big day.
But two months before the wedding, the details got out and it caused her heartache in the build up to the biggest moment of her life.
Prince William and Prince George so upset by Attenborough documentary they turned it off
Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton was given the job of making Kate look incredible.
Speaking on Channel 5 documentary Secrets of the Royal Dressmakers, royal expert Katie Nicholl discussed how much loose lips upset the future Duchess of Cambridge.
She said: "Behind the scenes I think that caused tears at the Palace because Kate had done everything she could to keep the wedding dress a secret."
A-list designer Sarah Burton attended the royal wedding and was on hand moments before Kate walked down the aisle.
She used traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship in making the dress.
This is a technique which dates back to the 1800s – and it represented 'something old' on the big day.
There was a desperation for big news as the days ticked towards the Westminster Abbey wedding.
At the time, The Sunday Times reported: "A fashion source said that the dress will be a combination of Middleton's own design ideas and Burton's deep knowledge and understanding of high fashion."
Thankfully, the leak didn't appear to dampen Kate's mood on the big day.
Designer Caroline Castigliano said on the show: "Everybody loved Kate’s dress. That excitement when she stepped out, it was just ‘wow’.
"Incredible. She looked sensational. Even now it gives me butterflies."
