REGAL GATECRASHER: Couple Gets Special Visitor to Their Wedding – The Queen of England

Queen Elizabeth gatecrashes at a Manchester wedding. The newly married Mr. and Mrs. John Canning had an unexpected guest at their wedding when Queen Elizabeth II dropped in to congratulate them. 


An English couple have had a wedding day they will never forget after their ceremony was gatecrashed by Queen Elizabeth.

 The British monarch dropped in on John and Frances Canning with her husband Prince Philip just after the pair tied the knot at Manchester Town Hall.

The happy couple called the Windsors' surprise appearance "the best wedding present ever".

The Queen looked stylish in a matching pink linen and wool coat outfit, almost upstaging the bride.

She was visiting Manchester as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour to mark 60 years on the throne.


Many years to the happy couple!

It was a most royal engagement for one awestruck U.K. couple when their civil wedding was crashed by the Queen herself.

The unannounced visit by the British monarch and Prince Philip stunned newylweds John and Frances Canning, whose small reception was being held in the same hall where Her Majesty was attending a luncheon.

The groom, John, had known the Queen would be in Manchester beforehand and wrote a letter — reportedly in jest — to Buckingham Palace, inviting her to the nuptials. He received a polite reply declining the offer, he said.

He never expected the royals to actually turn up to congratulate them.

Bride Frances was delighted the Queen stopped to chat and pose for photographs, calling the experience surreal.

"It was bizarre that she knew our names. She said: 'Hello John, Hello Frances,'" she told British tabloid the Daily Mail.

Royal analysts have described the wedding-crashing moment as a stroke of public-relations genius.
