Princess Diana’s wedding gown was right out of a fairy tale with the exception of the perfume she spilled on her gown moments before she was to walk down the aisle. Make-up artist Barbara Daly dished that when the then-20-year-old went to dab some of her favorite scent, Quelques Fleursher, on her wrist she accidentally doused part of her gown with it, as reported by Express.co.uk.com. The result? While Diana may have looked like she was lifting her dress as to not trample it as she walked, she was actually covering the perfume spot with her hand. There are even photos from that day that capture her holding the fabric as she approaches the altar.

Wedding day jitters can happen to anyone—even the future Princess of Wales. Standing in front of the altar in St. Paul’s Cathedral in front of all those people seems like more than enough reason for why Diana confused Prince Charles’ name, referring to him as “Philip Charles” instead of “Charles Philip.”
