Let’s give some credit where credit’s due. The Royal Wedding didn’t turn out to be celebrity funfair that many had predicted. Whether you’re a royalist or not, I hope you took some time to celebrate with the rest of the world on what was a truly magical day.
Prince William married his Princess and the world watched on as commoner Kate Middleton became part of the Royal Family.
A dress designed by Sarah Burton of the late Alexander McQueen’s company was one of several poignant reminders of those who weren’t there to share the special day.
I don’t think there was a single person old enough to remember Princess Diana who didn’t think of her during the celebrations.
Of course, with any wedding come the fashion hits and the fashion misses. I can honestly say I thought most of the guests looked incredible.
The Duchess of Cornwall is now the new fashion-setter – she really looked quite striking in an Anne Valentine number, completed by a pair of Jimmy Choos. If only she hadn’t looked like a nervous wreck, on the verge of crying the whole time.
Another fashion hit was Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, who has since been dubbed the new most eligible bacheloress in the world.
But two of the biggest misses of the day were Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
The pair, who have yet to receive acclaim for any outfit they’ve ever worn in public, should really have gone for outfits that didn’t hug in all the wrong places.
They should also have given the wedding hat shop a wide berth. What on earth was that on Beatrice’s head?
It looked like a cross between a weird spider and monster perched awkwardly on her bonce, almost as if she was unaware of it being there.
Seriously girls, after the family embarrassment caused by your mother’s antics, I would have recommended the sort of stylish outfits that could have perhaps given you and your mum a few much-needed brownie points.
But nope, in true Britney fashion it’s a case of ‘oops,you’ve done it again.’
