Prince Harry was quick to rescue his wife, Meghan Markle, after she briefly tumbled as they walked towards the church at his cousin’s wedding.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in attendance at the late Princess Diana’s niece, Celia McCorquodale's wedding on June 16th.

As the new husband and wife headed into the church, Markle seemed to have slipped but Prince Harry was fast enough to give his wife a helping hand.

Markle’s heel seemed to have gotten stuck in the grass which caused her to stumble for a bit.

Luckily, as Prince Harry was already holding her hand, he helped her gain composure and the couple went on to continue walking towards St. Andrew and St. Mary’s Church in Stoke Rochford, Lincolnshire.


The royal couple donned a traditional wedding attire with the Duchess in a blue-and-white, floral-patterned, long-sleeve Oscar de La Renta dress. She matched the outfit with a white fascinator and white heels.

In coordination with his wife’s ensemble, Prince Harry wore a sky blue tie with his three-piece suit.


McCorquodale, who has quite a resemblance with Princess Diana, was wed to George Woodhouse almost a month following Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding on May 19th.

Princess Diana was paid tribute with the bride wearing the infamous Spencer tiara, which the People’s Princess also wore during her own nuptials with Prince Charles in 1981.

According to the Mirror, the tiara had been passed down to generations within the Spencer family. Many women in the clan also wore the jewelry piece on their weddings, including Princess Diana’s two sisters.


McCorquodale made quite the entrance when she arrived in a vintage 1910 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost and made her procession towards the altar with her father, Neil McCorquodale.

Other guests at the ceremony included Princess Diana’s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale – who is the mother of the bride – and Lady Jane Fellows – who did a reading at Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding. The People’s Princess’ brother, Earl Charles Spencer and his wife Karen were also in attendance.
