Supersleuth :  I was not a fan of Meghans tiara, I like the shape but with no break in colour it seemed like one block to me. I liked that Eugenie’s had the emerald to break it up a bit more. Kate’s is again my favourite as there is more shape in the tiara, I also prefer her veil and I prefer a straight drop as opposed to a more shaped/sticky out one (if that makes sense?)

I love the 150 year old dress. Thats the style I always imagined me in and then discovered rhe shape does not suit me at all! haha 😀

I’m an egalitarian at heart.

I love the fact you don’t need to be royalty or have tens (or possibly hundreds of thousands of pounds to spend to get a fantastically beautiful dress.

The royal dresses are nice. I wish the married couples well. I also wish that I and other UK tax payers hadn’t had to pay (through taxes) for security. It’s not as though these people are ever going to associate with the likes of me.

Supersleuth :  We paid for the security but thats it, we have to pay for security for many things so that’s  not an expense I mind, but im a royalist and support us having a royal family so thats fine with me 🙂

Loved the overall design, but didn’t love the fabric. I understand it was silk (I believe?) but it photographed quite stiff. I’d love to see a royal bride chose mouvement over structure in a dress for once.

englishbride2018 :  Not a royalist, I’m afraid. 

My elderly neighbour was due to go to a charity event but decided not to go (even though she was the one who had set up the charity) because she was given a list of instructions which told her she could only speak to the royal personage attending if she was spoken to first.

Me and my neighbour – we curtsey to no one.

Supersleuth :  haha yeah that pretty standard world over for royalty 🙂 but it’s the same way I would not speak to my company CEO unless he spoke to me first, dont know why, I just wouldn’t. Thought maybe next time he’s around I should give it a go lol

Loved the back of her dress and the idea of the front. Not a fan of the embroidery that circled around the dress though. 

I also loved her tiara with the emeralds & her whole look. Simple and elegant.

I actually did NOT love her dress. But then again, I LOVED Meghan’s dress, so I think I’m just a minority person when it comes to royal dresses. 

It seemed far too stiff and “mature” for her age. The stiffness combined with the stuffy embroidery almost made it look like drapery.

I also didn’t care for the neckline fold. I agree with a PP that it made her shoulders look broad. 

I concede that the back was GORGEOUS, but I feel like a wedding dress should look beautiful from ALL angles.

All that to say – she looked beautiful and happy and calm, and her husband looked so in love. I think she was beyond happy with her dress, and that’s all that really matters. The emerald jewelry was amazing.

They were very gracious, stalling their plans to let Harry and Meghan go first, and “letting” Meghan announce her pregnancy to the family at their wedding.

englishbride2018 :  Kate will be queen. It’s not “decided when the time comes”. She will be styled either queen or queen consort, but she’ll be queen. I think you’re confused with Camilla, who while she will technically entitled to be called queen may decide not to style herself as such because of the Diana thing

Philip isn’t king because female royals take on their husband’s titles but husbands do not take their wives. He was never going to be “king”.

Hated it, but at least it fit her properly. I loved her reception dress. 

If I had to have long sleeves, I would do lace similar to Kate’s dress. Or I would wear a jacket and take it off after the church ceremony. Is that not allowed?

englishbride2018 :  

“she is the wife of a future king (I won’t says she’s a future Queen as that is not certain yet, Prince Philip is not king afterall, they will decide it when the time comes),” 

The Duchess of Cambridge’s status will be not something fluid when her husband   is King .  She will be the Queen, (not a queen regnant like our current  Queen) ,  but she will be queen Catherine, taking her status  from her husband as royals do. 

Queen Elizabeth  2 is a queen regnant, ie she rules in her own right.   She, like the first Elizabeth , like Queen Anne, like Queen Victoria, all queens regnant , never gave the title king to their  consort.   Even besotted Victoria never had Albert crowned. And   Elizabeth   1 of course , sidestepped  the whole   issue!

cmsgirl :  Invite for show? I doubt it. Those invited run in similar circles, they’re friends- famous or not!

I loved both dresses! She looked amazing from head to toe in my opinion for the ceremony and reception. The tiara was to die for. Her dress is my favorite after Kates.
