But one clip had viewers in hysterics as it showed a guest being 'snubbed' at the door of Westminster Abbey after her handshake seemed to be awkwardly missed.

In the clip shared on Twitter by @IainLiddle, a few guests were seen shaking hands with a man who was welcoming them into the service before a blonde woman tried to do the same.

But she ended up being ignored as the man seemed to reluctantly tap her hand as she walked by.

The woman, who royal fans said was 'fuming', walked away muttering about it and lip reader Jeremy Freeman has revealed her very British reaction to the awkward moment.

The expert explained to the Daily Star that the woman says "hello, morning" and puts her hand out. But when the man ignores her, she walks off rolling her eyes and says "charming".

A fourth added: "Haha saw that, she was muttering to herself all the way in after that haha."
