The Queen's criticism of Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding day has been revealed by a lip reading expert after it was caught on camera almost 11 years ago. 


Prince William and Kate Middleton married at Westminster Abbey in April 2011 and will mark 11 years of marriage this year when they celebrate their anniversary. 

The huge royal wedding was watched by millions across the globe, with Kate's wedding dress, which was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, leaving royal fans in awe. 

The magical day was like something out of a fairytale, but there was one seemingly critical comment that Her Majesty the Queen was seen making on the big day that has been decoded by pro lip reader, Tina Lannin.

Tina, who was born deaf, has worked for police forensic teams helping to uncover unheard words for years, so she was able to suss out what was being said during moments of the royal wedding the public couldn’t hear on TV, according to CBS News

While Prince William’s grandmother was seen turning to Prince Philip and saying “it was excellent” after the wedding ceremony, she reportedly didn’t hold back on airing one particular opinion as the newlyweds rode away in the stunning carriage.

In a moment of disapproval about the couple’s choice of ride, the Queen is believed to have said, "I wanted them to take the smaller carriage."

Duchess Camilla of Cornwall then chipped in, reportedly adding, "It all went very well."

Some sweet remarks and cheeky jokes from the wedding have also been uncovered, with Prince William being believed to have told Catherine’s father, "We're supposed to have just a small family affair," while surrounded by the couple's 2000 guests.

Kate's sister Pippa Middleton, welcomed a baby girl last year, was seen telling the future Queen Consort, "You look amazing," as she made her way to marry William.  

As she arrived at the altar to meet him, the future King, who will take the throne at Buckingham Palace in coming years, was seen telling his wife-to-be, "You look lovely... You look beautiful."
