Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece has Queen Elizabeth to thank for making her royal wedding portrait picture-perfect nearly 27 years ago!

A new video recently surfaced on Twitter showing the England-born Greek royal and her husband, Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, posing for photos during their July 1, 1995 nuptials, surrounded by some of their guests. Among the attendees present was Her Majesty, who dressed in a blue dress and matching hat for the lavish event. In the unearthed footage, the U.K.'s longest-reigning monarch is seen making her way to her seat in the front row and leaning down to adjust Crown Princess Marie-Chantal's bridal train, ensuring her outfit was perfectly placed for the camera.

The gesture was quickly noticed by royal fans on social media, with one Twitter user commenting: "How sweet is HMTQ adjusting Marie Chantal train."

The Queen was also joined by her now late husband, Prince Philip, and their son Prince Charles for the 1995 wedding, which took place at St Sophia's Cathedral in London, followed by a reception at Hampton Court Palace. The affair reportedly brought together the largest gathering of royalty in London since the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's wedding in 1947.

For the happy celebration, Marie-Chantal stunned in a glamorous couture gown designed by Valentino that is said to have cost a whopping £150,000. The form-fitting dress cinched at the waist and featured a high neckline, long lace sleeves, and a skirt with floral appliques. Tying her look together, the princess wore a magnificent 15-foot train Chantilly lace veil with a scalloped edge, which was held in place with a tiara borrowed from her mother-in-law, Queen Anne-Marie.

Marie-Chantal and Pavlos, who are set to celebrate their 27th anniversary later this week, have since welcomed five children: Princess Maria-Olympia, Prince Constantine Alexios, Prince Achileas-Andreas, Prince Odysseas-Kimon, and Prince Aristidis-Stavros.
