An empty seat at the royal wedding wasn’t in honor of Princess Diana as many believed.

Daily Mail’s Rebecca English explained the vacant chair next to Prince William was actually for the Queen! She tweeted, “The seat in front of the Queen is always left empty.”

Despite the gone-viral reporting about the chair, it turns out there were many tributes to Prince Harry’s mother throughout the ceremony.

For instance, Meghan Markle’s bouquet featured Diana’s favorite flower, forget-me-nots, which Harry hand-picked himself!

Markle’s veil was also reminiscent of Diana’s extremely long headpiece from her 1981 nuptials to Prince Charles.
