Diane Shipley

it was the wedding of the century when the Prince and Princess of Wales tied the knot in 2011. While royal fans were treated to an array of beautiful photographs from the event soon after the big day, one had never been publicly shared until now.

A photo shared widely on Twitter on Sunday originates from a listing on auction site eBay that currently has the couple’s Christmas card from the year they were married for sale.

The couple had a special feature at their 2011 royal wedding that you may not have noticed.

Princess Kate was radiant on her wedding day

Hundreds of photos show Princess Kate walking down the aisle at Westminster Abbey arm-in-arm with her father Michael Middletonbefore returning beside her new husband Prince William.

But with all eyes on her breathtaking gown – complete with lace long sleeves, a V-neck and a full skirt – it’s unlikely many people clocked that she was walking on a red carpet.

The regal color is not only eye-catching for photos, but it also reportedly has a symbolic meaning.

The couple’s big day was an incredible event

It is supposedly reserved for heirs to the throne, with the likes of then-Prince Charles and his first wife Princess Diana opting for the color at their 1981 nuptials, while the late Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip’s venue was also decorated with the red aisle.

Meanwhile, Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank chose a blue carpet to mark the aisle back in 2018 – a color that is thought to symbolize fidelity and loyalty.
