Even I could have sewn her dress for less. I remember Diana's dress and OMG it was the epitome of FLOUNCE! Not even sure how she could walk in it but this dress was nice and simple although am sure the Designer charged a MINT for it.

The popular estimate is £200,000
There are two establishments in the UK that are easy to rip off.
The Royal Family and the NHS :(

Well you do all surprise me by seeing the royal wedding , even in parts you took it all in. ;)

I thought she was beautiful with her simple but elegant dress & the use of Queen Mary's tiara loaned to her from our Queen.

All in all a beautiful day for them...................did you notice the empty seat next to Prince William? some think it was a thought from Prince Harry for his mother, others think it was not to block the view for the Queen :o

Apart from going to sleep during the preacher's effort, I was hooked as soon as I saw a woman arriving wearing trainers and white socks as part of her outfit! At least she was decent. I saw in the paper this morning the comment about the woman almost wearing a dress that appeared to have no underwear, plunging front and backless - "Her outfit would have been much improved if she had worn a bra and a jacket".

I loved the walk down to the chapel, it was so relaxed with friends greeting each other and nothing hurried.

Harry appears to have a great memory for faces which must be a great asset in his many meet and greet situations. I've never seen an assistant at his shoulder ready to brief him.

No Grandad, a young woman I didn't recognise. I thought Duchess of Kent looked pretty good, though her husband is showing his age somewhat.

Vanessa Williams showed off her trainers which she was wearing to the evening do under a voluminous skirt and said that she often wore trainers with formal wear as long as people couldn't see it. Sensible girl in my book as her feet are so important in her sport. I wonder how many other women do it?
