Of course, this being an autumn wedding, and with Storm Callum currently crossing through Britain, it was a tad windy.

Hold on to those hats ladies - the wind is getting the better of some #RoyalWedding guests, including Ayda Field's mum Gwen! πŸ‘’ https://t.co/nPPs0iEiBL

OK, it was gusts-of-60-mph windy.

Numerous fascinators, hats, and blow-drys fell victim.

So much so that every guest opted for the traditional wedding pose, β€œhand stuck to hat.”

And it almost even swept away the bridesmaids and page boys.

Of course, viewers enjoyed every minute of it.

I'm not interested in any back story, just want to see hats flying and hair sticking to lip gloss whilst trying to look put together #RoyalWedding https://t.co/QkrIYeLxkM

It was all just very British.

I'm not saying it's windy but a minor royal just flapped past the back window. #RoyalWedding
