The Hats & Dress

Worse hats and makeup of the day:  Fergie's two daughters' hats.
Do you agree or disagree?  The worse dressed goes to the PrimeMinister's wife on right--no hat either! 


The Event 
1900 guests invited...nothing spared to make it a perfect Royal event (even if they won't say how much has been spent).  Most poignant is that Prince William invited members of the families of two close friends who died in active military service according to the BBC. 


The Entrance
Kate arrives in her Alexander McQueen wedding gown as predicted....it was reminiscent of Princess Grace's beautiful wedding gown.  See the comparison at the end of this post.

I liked this poignant moment when Harry turns to watch Kate and then says something to William such as "she's almost here" with a giggle...William never looked back.




Protocol has it that when he salutes, she bows her head.  They did this several times during the ride
back to Buckingham Palace.





The little bridesmaid stole the balcony show!

Let Them Eat Cake

The gown on the left was made for Princess Grace of Monaco, Kate in middle and Grace at her wedding....stunning resemblances.  Diana and Kate below.
