Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Not everyone can get their hands on a 1930's Cartier diamond tiara and the chief designer of one of the world's most renowned labels but I hope that the style of the dress influences future gowns. I loved the lace and the long sleeves, so much more flattering than a strapless dress which in headshots make it look like the bride is naked.
There were the obvious comparisons with Grace Kelly, another 'commoner' [albeit a movie star] who married a Prince.
Yesterday's nuptials were a very classy affair. How relieved must Pippa have been to be spared the usual peach blancmange dress? Her McQueen gown with it's simple shape, capped sleeves and the button detailing down the spine was as flattering as the bridal gown. No wonder Princes Harry and Phillip were flirting so madly with her. I think half the country would have given the chance. Now a Harry and Pippa wedding would be a LOT of fun ...
To the happy couple!
