7 Royal SurprisesFor better or worse, these royal wedding moments made us stop and take a second look.

Our wish-they-were-a-couple couple of the year, Pippa and Harry.

1. "Happa" didn't happen
When they shared a late-night ride (okay, it was a shuttle bus) back to the Goring Hotel, we thought for sure the royal best man and maid of honor would continue the bridal party behind closed doors. But alas, Prince Harry and Pippa did not hook-up after the royal wedding.

6. Harry's wiggly worm
Like Harry himself, this sounds a lot more unseemly than it actually is! The loveable prince reportedly gave three-year-old bridesmaid Eliza Lopes a toy worm to play with in the carriage. The little cherub liked it so much that she held on to it straight through the official photo session!

7. Will's first time?
We were pleasantly surprised when the newlyweds emerged from Buckingham Palace in an Aston Martin tricked out by the best man himself. But learner plates? Prince William's wedding day wasn't his first turn behind the wheel, leading us to wonder what Harry was hinting at with the tongue-and-cheek decoration...
