She’s just like us! Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle almost fell while walking on grass in sky-high heels during Prince Harry‘s cousin’s royal wedding on Saturday, June 16. Just one month after their own nuptials, Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, stepped out for Celia Rose McCorquodale’s royal wedding to George Woodhouse in Stoke Rochford, England.
For the special occasion, Meghan looked gorgeous in a blue and white patterned Oscar de la Renta wrap dress worth $5,490. She accessorized the summery ensemble with white pumps, a white clutch, and a matching fascinator from Marks and Spencer.

But, while Meghan was walking into the church before the wedding ceremony, she was spotted nearly taking a tumble while strolling in high heels on a patch of grass. In a video obtained by the Daily Mail, the Duchess can be seen twisting her ankle and tripping before Harry (who was adorably holding her hand!) caught his wife and helped her avoid a fall. Whew!
Meghan’s near-fall wasn’t the only much talked about moment from Celia’s royal wedding over the weekend. The bride also made headlines for donning Princess Diana‘s iconic wedding tiara during her nuptials. Celia, 29, wowed in the Spencer Tiara, which Diana famously wore for her July 1981 royal wedding to Prince Charles.
According to People, the headpiece belongs to Diana’s family and though it has been on display in recent years, the tiara has not been worn publicly by anyone since the People’s Princess’s August 1997 death.
