Prince William and Kate Middleton are Hitched!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Congrats!
So after months of hype and media overkill, William, Duke of Cambridge, made Catherine 'Kate' Middleton, Duchess of Cambrdige, and his wife. The wedding was the topic of all conversation for weeks leading up to today, being the bane of many an existence for the same time. God, how does the media focus on one thing and then slowly and painfully kill us with it? Jesus.

In any event, though I am a sucker for love, the wedding fell flat for me. Tradition and the institution of the British monarchy overpowered any emotion that may exist within the Windsor/Middleton inner circles. It was just all too stiff and too formal for me and if I were to describe it in one word, that word would be boring.

Kate's dress was beautiful, though again, because of the hype, it was not a wowser for me. But she did look stunning. William and Harry looked dashing, and Queen Elizabeth showed us yet again that she leads by example with a burst of warm colour.

Kate Middleton. The dress of the century? What say you?

But the true highlight of this wedding was undoubtedly the wedding fashion from the lucky suckers who managed to snag an invitation for the royal nuptials. The hats, especially, stole the show. Love 'em or hate 'em, the hats were the stars of this day - with most of them from Irish milliner, Phillip Treacy.

Everything about Tara Palmer-Tomkinson's outfit was shocking in electric blue! Love it.

Victoria Beckham's hat was minimal but her best accessory was undoubtedly her hot husband

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie took ugly to new levels with these hats but kudos for being different



The queen's granddaughter, Zara Phillips - totally loved her hat

And though she went hat-less, Sam Cam looked splendid

Now I want my own prince. Suggestions?

  2. Totally agree with you in respect to the dress, I was expecting something really really special! A lot of noise for not so much right?

  3. I've got to be honest with you....I was not all too enthused about the Royal Wedding. I am, however, quite interested in the fashions...and I am not impressed. What were Beatrice and Eugenie wearing! I loved Kate's dress...very classy and classic. I also loved her sister's dress. And the Queen was impeccable!

  4. The Princesses DID have...unusual hats. But very fun!

    I loved Kate's dress! I thought it was beautiful and totally appropriate for the future Queen of England. And I think it wasn't so much about the dress as it was the complete look. She really was gorgeous.
