Royal Wedding Mishap During Princess Eugenie's Wedding

During Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank‘s nuptials at St. George’s Chapel on Friday, the couple ran into a problem when it came time for Jack to slip Eugenie’s Welsh gold wedding band on her finger but the ring didn’t quite fit.

As Jack struggled a bit to push the band down, he made a silly face, and Eugenie helped him adjust it.

Prince William and Kate Middleton ran into the same problem at their wedding in 2011 when he couldn’t get her wedding band past her knuckle. It turns out Kate had asked her ring designer to make the gold band a size smaller so it wouldn’t slip off her finger, according to reports.

Both Eugenie and Kate (and Meghan Markle!) received Welsh gold wedding bands as a gift from Queen Elizabeth. The royal family has been using the gold for their wedding rings ever since the Queen Mother’s wedding in 1923.

Jack opted not to wear a ring, just like Prince William, while Prince Harrysports a platinum wedding band with a textured finish.
