Did anyone catch the one glitch, at least the most obvious to television viewers?
I didn’t catch it the first time I watched…..
Caught it the second time I fast forwarded through…..
Can’t figure it out yet?
Go back and watch the tape of Kate and William leaving the church in the horse drawn carriage accompanied by the house cavalry. There is a shot looking forward from the perspective of behind the carriage and you can see a black horse running riderless ahead of William and Kate towards the left. Apparently very early in the parade, the horse dumped its rider. In a subsequent shot, the horse has been caught by someone on the side of the road (on the left side of the screen) but it is clearly freaking out as Kate and William’s carriage passes. The final shot of the horse is when the carriage is passing an obelisk (sorry, don’t know my way around London) and behind the carriage you can see the mounted guards bunching together apparently attempting to block this runaway horse (and who has apparently escaped from it’s captor) but the creature squeezes through and you can see him gallop off to the right of the screen just behind the newlywed’s carriage.
Daily Telegraph is reporting it: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/royal-wedding/8483481/Royal-wedding-procession-rider-thrown-from-horse.html
Horses are unpredictable creatures but the hoopla of the parade route was not unexpected to the humans in charge of the horses and a properly desensitized horse would not have freaked out like that. And I imagine the dumped rider is mortified.
