5 most scandalous royal weddings in recent years: Grandma's outfits, unconventional love, etc

Royal weddings are always exceptional. Even in the age of information technology, everyone wants to see with their own eyes a dream come true and a fairy tale come true. Royal families usually do not disappoint their fans and show the world bright wedding ceremonies. However, surprise is often mixed with the joy of the birth of a new “social unit”.

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli-Mozzi

Princess Beatrice Vintage Wedding Outfit

The most anticipated royal event of 2020 was held in a special "quarantine" regime. Preparations for the marriage of Beatrice of York and the Italian aristocrat Edoardo Mapelli-Mozzi did not go very smoothly: at first, the wedding scheduled for May was postponed indefinitely, then it was nevertheless held in July, but in an extremely modest version - only 20 guests and a minimum of pomp. In addition, Princess Beatrice has become hostage to a new ethical scrupulousness - due to the scandal that erupted recently around her father, leading fashion houses in Europe refused to work with a high-ranking bride. This case, perhaps the first in history, perfectly illustrates the modern world and the newfangled "moral inquisition", from which many celebrities have already suffered.

Queen Elizabeth II, 1961

A truly royal way out of the situation was found: Elizabeth II opened the doors of her dressing rooms in front of her beloved granddaughter and offered her any outfits and jewelry to choose from. Beatrice showed excellent taste and opted for a taffeta dress from Peau De Soie by designer Norman Hartnell. In this outfit, Queen Elizabeth II arrived on December 10, 1962 for the premiere of the film "Lawrence of Arabia". The dress is made of very expensive ivory fabric and embroidered with diamonds. Modern designers only added small sleeves, and the vintage outfit began to look like a princess-worthy wedding dress. The head of the royal bride was adorned with one of the most famous crowns in the world - the tiara-franges of Mary of Teck. It was in her that Elizabeth II herself was once married.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

For many years, the most striking event of the English royal house was the story of Princess Diana. Now the sons of Lady Di continue a good family tradition and delight the whole world with an unusual choice of brides. The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has become one of the most talked about news of 2018. A scandal with his father was added to the racial identity of the newlywed and her acting profession: Thomas Markle was too carried away by his new popularity and agreed to have reporters step by step filmed his preparations for his daughter's wedding. Because of immodesty, he not only received a "scolding" from his future relatives, but did not even attend the wedding.

"Miss Moscow - 2015" Oksana Voevodina and King of Malaysia Muhammad V

Oksana Voevodina's wedding at Barvikha Concert Hall

This scandalous marriage, perhaps, overshadowed the wedding of the English prince. Oksana Voevodina, 25, the Miss Moscow 2015 title holder, married the 49-year-old King of Malaysia Muhammad V. A luxurious ceremony was held in Russia at the Barvikha Concert Hall complex on Rublevka. The bride's dress was striking not so much by its originality as by its cost, and the groom was in the national dress of his country.At the end of the evening, Oksana put on a hijab.

The family happiness of the king of Malaysia and the former Miss Moscow did not last long

All the capital's elite gathered at the event, the most popular Russian artists performed, but the joyful celebration did not add happiness to the young. Just a few months later, it became known that Oksana was expecting a child, but at the same time there were reports of a divorce, which Muhammad carried out according to Muslim tradition. The reason was the question of the paternity of the unborn child and the too frank photographs of the former Miss, which the deceived husband, allegedly, had not seen before.

Princess Stephanie Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Jan Stahl

After the wedding, Stefania Sibylla and her young husband traditionally planted a tree

This wedding was discussed for several reasons: first, the bride had not been able to connect with the love of her life for a long time because of the whim of her parents - her father did not give permission to marry a “commoner”; secondly, Stephanie Sibylla does not quite correspond to the idea of ​​what a princess should be like. Nobody demands model beauty from representatives of royal families, but the 46-year-old heiress of the ducal house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha still often causes critical reviews in her address, and her wedding ceremony became another reason. According to the public, the bride's outfit was too modest and did not correspond to the solemn occasion.

James Coyle and Ivar Mountbatten

The first ever royal same-sex wedding

And this happy couple of newlyweds did without a white wedding dress at all for a completely objective reason. The first ever same-sex royal wedding took place in the UK in 2018. Queen Elizabeth II's cousin Lord Ivar Mountbatten has joined his fate with pilot James Coyle. The wedding caused some surprise, because the lord was previously married and is the father of three children. However, the ex-wife is so not offended by him that she even brought the "newlywed" to the altar herself.

Noble brides attract special attention as they show off the royal wedding dresses that all brides dream about.
