‘Oh, break my heart’... What the lip-reader saw


GROOM Jack Brooks­bank’s over-swelling emo­tion was never more ap­par­ent than when he saw his bride en­ter the chapel.

As he stood at the al­tar, he whis­pered to his brother Tom: ‘Oh my heart, oh, break my heart.’

Jack then told his soon-to-be wife: ‘You look per­fect.’

The ro­man­tic words were cap­tured by pro­fes­sional lipread­ers.

Mean­while, as ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion was fo­cused on the bride and groom, a num­ber of sidesplit­ting asides were caught be­ing whis­pered in the pews. Sarah, Duchess of York, told Princess Beatrice: ‘My stom­ach, can’t hold my stom­ach in!’ Her gig­gling daugh­ter replied: ‘Mine is OK as I’m wear­ing a corset.’

Zara Tin­dall re­marked pithily to cousin Prince Harry: ‘It’s very quiet com­pared to the scream­ing at your wed­ding.’

Out­side the chapel, Sarah was asked by Rob­bie Wil­liams’ daugh­ter Teddy, six, if she was the Queen. ‘No,’ came the brisk re­sponse.

Teddy’s pop star dad also seemed im­pressed. ‘Wow, this is awe­some ... yeah, yeah,’ Rob­bie ex­claimed.
