Rare Video of Queen Elizabeth Running after Little Prince William Shared on Twitter

A rare video of the Queen chasing a toddler Prince William, who was running after the carriage of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson on their wedding day, recently emerged on Twitter.

Queen Elizabeth was in grandma mode during the wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson as little Prince William chased the carriage the newlywed rode.

The monarch was quick to hold William back and make sure he didn’t get too close. Her maternal instinct kicked in and saved Prince William of what could have been a possibly dangerous situation.

The video was initially taken on July 23, 1986, and resurfaced Twitter after being posted by a fan page account of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Last month, Eugenie celebrated her parents’ 33rd anniversary through a thoughtful Instagram post, which included a throwback photo of the wedding day.

The Queen wore an elegant all-purple ensemble, matched with a hat of the same color and accessorized with two pearl necklaces. Little Prince William, on the other hand, sported an adorable sailor-like outfit. She was ready to get dirty, though.

The tweet read:

“It’s been 33 years since the wedding of Prince Andrew and Fergie in 1986. And so here’s Queen Elizabeth running after little Prince William to stop him from getting closer to the carriage. Her majesty as a grandma is cute.”

Sadly, the marriage of Andrew and Ferguson ended in divorce four years after, yet they remained friends and co-parented their two daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice who both have grown to be beautiful ladies.

Last month, Eugenie celebrated her parents’ 33rd anniversary through a thoughtful Instagram post, which included a throwback photo of the wedding day.

She wrote:

“Who else has ever forgotten to congratulate their parents on their wedding anniversary! I’m a day late but I wanted to celebrate my parents getting married 33 years ago… Thank you for always being the best of friends and bringing us up together.”

The former royal couple believes they are “the happiest divorced couple in the world” after remaining to be close and supportive, not only for their kids but for each other.
