When Kate walks down the aisle this year, she will be 29, officially making her the oldest royal bride ever. Most royal brides in history have typically been teenagers, and Princess Diana was barely 20-years-old when she wed Prince Charles.
Once crowned, Catherine will be the 6th Queen Catherine of England, the first being Catherine of Valois, who married Henry V in 1420
In keeping with royal tradition, Kate’s bouquet will include a sprig of myrtle to symbolise a happy marriage and fragranced blooms to evoke lasting memories.
Following tradition, Kate’s wedding ring will include a piece of Welsh gold, and will most likely be taken from the same nugget that was used to make Sarah, Duchess of York’s band
