Uh oh.

New information regarding Kate Middleton’s wedding has emerged that reveals the Duchess of Cambridge deviated from royal tradition on the day.

Yes, apparently she ignored a request from the royal family that led to serious tension.

And as we all know, traditions and rules come as part and parcel of being a royal.

According to The Express, royal brides typically wear their hair up for weddings, but Kate decided to leave her signature brunette locks mostly down, opting for a subtle soft curl with a small section tied up

{long post ahead but it's a fun one} 7 years ago the world (and us) watched as Kate married Prince William. Her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen confection was one for the ages! About Kate's dress: ▫︎ It reportedly cost about £250,000 ?, which is about $345,000 ▫︎ The lace on her dress was from the Royal School of Needlework (@royalneedlework) ▫︎ The dress's silhouette is a hallmark @alexandermcqueen design: nipped waist with a bit of padding at the hips to accentuate the tiny waist ▫︎ The different flowers in the lace motif (rose, daffodil, thistle and shamrock) were representative of the countries that make up the United Kingdom. ▫︎ The #longtrain was just under 2.7 meters, which is just under 3 yards And in only 20 days, we get to watch the magic that is a #royalwedding all over again! We can't wait to see what #meghanmarkle will wear, and how her dress will influence the bridal trends. Here's our predictions for what she will wear: ▫︎ Her ceremony dress will be lean towards traditional with an a-line skirt, at least a 3/4 length sleeves, and a lace bodice with either a bateau or portrait neckline and prominent #3Dlace details on top. Oh, and of course a long train! ▫︎ Our money is also on Meghan wearing the same diadem Princess Diana wore: the #spencertiara. ▫︎ Like Kate, she'll also have a second dress for the reception. We're thinking something fun in a slimmer silhouette made of silk crepe. Who's ready to watch the Royal Wedding? ??‍♀️??‍♀️ We definitely are · · · #themoreyouknow #itsallinthedetails #weddingdressdetails #katemiddletonweddingdress #katemiddletonfashion #dukeandduchessofcambridge #royalschoolofneedlework #sarahburton #alexandermcqueendress #lacesleeves #customweddingdress #whatwillmeghanwear #weddingdressinspiration #bridalfashion #aislestyle #weddingdaylook #gownspiration Photos by @gettyimages

The royal couple tied the knot in Westminster Abbey back in 2011, where the ceremony was led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and attended by 1,900 guests.

In the documentary William and Kate: The Journey, journalist Ashley Pearson revealed that the royal family wished for Kate to tie her hair up, but the Duchess of Cambridge had other ideas:

“Kate had her heart set on wearing her hair down with long flowing curls, which is her favourite way to wear it, and actually William’s favourite as well.”

In the end, a compromise was struck and Kate wore her hair half up half down and later in the evening when she changed dresses, Kate left her hair completely down.

However, this isn’t the only was the royal pair deviated from tradition, Kate was also the first “commoner” to marry into the royal family in three and a half centuries. The couple also broke tradition by staying in Buckingham Palace instead of following suit and going on their honeymoon the night of the wedding.

Absolute rebels.
