The Royal Wedding: Prince William & Kate Middleton

April 29th, 2011, saw, Princess Diana's first born, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, finally wed the lady of his life Catherine 'Kate' Middleton.


After meeting at University and dating for 8 years, Kate Middleton, dubbed by the tabloids as "Waity Katie" (because she waited years for Prince William to propose) finally saw her dreams come true as she walked down the aisle in a divine Alexander McQueen dress. The £250,000 gown made of soft ivory silk tulle and lace was a nod to Grace Kelly's iconic 1956 wedding dress.


Kate's accessories were mainly gifted by the family. Her vintage Cartier tiara was borrowed from Queen Elizabeth, whilst her earrings were a wedding gift from her parents, who had them designed around their family crest. After receiving private make-up lessons, Kate decided to do her own face make up on the day, which is truly refreshing to hear.

 

While Kate looked ravishing, the world could not keep their eyes of younger sister Pippa Middleton. The maid of honour now known as 'Her Royal Hottness' wowed the world in a simple Alexander McQueen dress which hugged her body in all the right places, and when we say "hugged her body" we actually mean "hugged her backside". Pippa's backside has become the most famous Middleton, with the world swooning over her athletic figure.

Congratulations and best of luck to the new Royal couple now formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
