On 19th of May, the royal family was out in full force for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. Everyone from Queen Elizabeth II to Prince Charles was in attendance as the couple said “I do” at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day was truly magical! Many friends were invited and very few European noblemen. Interesting.
I only collected those relatives and acquaintances who have left some traces in me. As the guests begun to arrive at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding, let see the
Queen Elizabeth II wore an Angela Kelly hat and a lime green ensemble by Stuart Parvin to celebrate her grandson Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle. Many guests chose to wear bright colours. But brightest of all was Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who chose a lime green silk tweed coat with frogging detail layered over a subtly flared printed silk dress in complementary shades of lime, lemon, purple and grey. Top of the coat the Queen wore the Richmond Diamond brooch with pearl drop. I think she was so elegant.
Prince Philip, 96, the Duke of Edinburgh was at St. George’s Chapel accompanying the Queen and been a supportive grandfather to the groom. The Prince looked fit and fashionable in a traditional tailored suit coat.
Prince Charles, 69, Prince of Wales and Camilla Parker Bowles, 70. The Duchess of Cornwall looked very pink in a V neck vollar coatdress. The hat was the same colour as her dress and featured feathers, what I found too much. She was outdid herself as usual.
Doria Ragland mother-of-the-bride, got her outfit just right. She choosed an understated pale pistachio green day coat and dress with white floral embroidery by Oscar de la Renta, worn with a small matching hat by Stephen Jones worn close to the head and heels by Aquazzura.
Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a primrose yellow wool silk coat Alexander McQueen dress and matching coat and teamed it up with a buttermilk Philip Treacy hat and a nude Jimmy Choo shoes. It was a pitch-perfect ensemble that worked well and didn’t outshined her sister-in-law at her big day. For me it was balance of subtlety but it might been too simple. Or was she trying to be sisterly, allowing Meghan to have her spotlight on the most important day of her life? If yes, she’s made herself appear all the more relatable and likeable for it.
Relatives from Harry’s late mother’s side of the family will also be presented. Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer and Countess Karen Spencer was absolutely resplendent in a custom Pamella Roland violet-hued capelet dress with a bow disc hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan.
Lady Kitty Spencer, Princess Diana’s niece, cousin of Prince Harry wore a flawless Dolce & Gabbana dress and a sculpted head piece by Philip Treacy.
Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Princess Beatrice. Harry’s cousin chosed a teal silk-organza gown by British brand Roksanda. The long-sleeved, full-skirted dress looked incredibly dramatic, but her headpiece is almost nothing. The “hat” was made by British milliner Stephen Jones.
Princess Eugenie choosed a pale-blue fitted minidress by little-known British label Gainsbourg. Eugenie’s neat pillbox hat, designed by Fiona Graham, added to the retro mood of her outfit, which could have been a homage to that arbiter of 1960s style Jacqueline Kennedy.
