Kate was ‘in tears’ before marrying Prince William after dress disaster

Kate Middleton wed Prince William almost ten years ago in one of the most famous ceremonies in royal history.

Although a decade has nearly passed, fans of the couple – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – still follow the pair and their duties to this day.

Their wedding was watched by millions across the globe and one of the biggest talking points came when Kate stepped out in her beautiful dress.

The ivory gown was designed by Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, and was classic and elegant in style.

It had hand-cut Chantilly lace sleeves and a satin bodice with lace roses.

Thistles, daffodils and shamrocks were embroidered onto the silk tulle.

As beautiful and iconic as the dress was, it also included a 2.7 metre train, and estimated to cost around £250,000.

However, the Duchess was reportedly 'in tears' before she tied the knot, as details of the design of the dress were leaked to the press ahead of the ceremony.

Although the royal couple attempted to keep all the details a private before they said 'I do', it was revealed Sarah Burton designed her dress.

At the time, The Times wrote: "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."

Ms Burton denied she was behind the Duchess' gown until it was officially announced on the day.

During an interview on Channel 5 documentary, Secrets of the Royal Dressmakers, royal expert Katie Nicholl spoke of Kate's disappointment.

She claimed: "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."

Although the design of the dress leaked before the big day, fans across the world still looked in awe as she stepped out.

Sister Pippa followed behind and lifted her train as she walked up the steps of Westminster Abbey in 2011.
