Why Prince William And Catherine Had A Red Carpet At Their Wedding


The preparation that goes into a royal wedding is intense and detailed. Even when it comes down to details like what carpet the couple walks on to tie the knot. Only certain royals get to walk down a red carpet. The reason is that the color red signifies an heir to the throne, as Hello! notes. As many may know, Prince William was the firstborn child of King Charles and the late Princess Diana (via Britannica). Because he was the firstborn, he automatically became heir to the throne. As heir to the throne, there are certain things bestowed to you — including a red carpet.

According to Hello!, William’s father also walked down a red carpet when he married Princess Diana. And even further back, the late Queen Elizabeth II also walked down a red carpet. The tradition of only heirs walking down a red carpet continued in 2011 when Prince William married Kate Middleton. While only heirs can walk down a red carpet, there are other options for other royals to walk down on.

Blue carpets signify fidelity and loyalty (via Hello!). In 2018, Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank walking on a blue carpet. Princess Eugenie wasn’t the only royal to choose blue, Prince Andrew and Princess Anne both chose the navy color. As for Prince William’s brother, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opted out of using a carpet and instead showed the lovely floors of St. George’s Chapel.
