Everything appeared to go off without a hitch and the couple was all smiles that day. However, a royal author has revealed that leading up to the wedding was a different story as a secret got out that really upset Kate and actually had her in tears before her big day.

Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot in 2011, after several years of dating. The royal wedding of the future king and his bride was a grand affair. It took place at Westminster Abbey, the same church where Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were married decades earlier. Nearly 2,000 guests were in attendance while tens of thousands around the world tuned in to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s nuptials.

The Sunday Times reported that Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen, was designing the gown. According to Katie Nicholl, author of The Making of A Royal Romance, that secret getting out upset the future duchess so much so that she was “in tears” over it.
