Even royal weddings, expensive and grand as they are, don’t always go well. And it’s extra unfortunate for the royals in question, as their wedding days end up going down in the annals of history. Because of how much the world loves a good royal wedding, these 20 stories of disaster (or near-disaster) have been remembered. Some of them for hundreds of years! And… no, the actual marriages didn’t always work out either.
