Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie have also removed the word “obedience” from their royal wedding vows.
Prince William and Kate’s wedding
Prince William broke royal traditions by choosing Prince Harry to be his bridesmaid in his 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton, as it was the custom in British royal weddings technically to choose his bridesmaid at the ceremony, but this did not prevent members of the royal family from breaking protocol and giving someone the honorary title .
Princess Kate Middleton also broke this royal tradition, choosing her sister Pippa Middleton as her bridesmaid.
