Princess Kate, 41, wore a dress by Alexander McQueen (the designer behind her 2011 wedding gown — also debuted at Westminster Abbey) in ivory silk crepe with silver bullion and thread work embroidery featuring rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock motifs — symbolizing the U.K.'s four nations.

 

The outfit was topped with a Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen headpiece with silver bullion, crystal and silver thread work three-dimensional leaf embroidery.

Kate also wore some sentimental jewels, including pearl and diamond earrings that belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. She also wore the George VI Festoon Necklace, a piece made in 1950 at the request of King George VI for his daughter Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth).

Princess Charlott's headpiece looks like one row of her mother's headpiece. Charlotte seem to have a very firm grasp of Louis's hand.....just in case. Am so happy he made it through the entire ceremony with angelic behavior.

I thought I read there would be no tiaras allowed except for the new queen and her crown.. Not sure, but she's beautiful in anything.



Yes, you were right. I heard the same thing. No tiaras.

I didn't finish the thread, but one of the few things I heard today was tiaras were "banned."  Too many queens, I guess.

Did you actually read this somewhere, or is this speculation on your part?

 

I've read in a few places that Charles expects Kate to "tone down" her outfit so attention isn't taken away from him.   What is she supposed to wear ... a burlap bag?

 

Remember how he used to get upset when Diana got more attention than he did?  That might be why he feels so comfortable with Camilla ... with her, he is definitely the prettier one.   Woman LOL

That is so true!  I said at the time frame it all happened; you rarely see a man cheat with an older uglier woman!
