Via the Royal Wedding websiteThe Royal Wedding. A "regular" girl becomes a princess. That's just magical. I have an affinity for Catherine/Kate Middleton. I hope she manages the extreme pressure and publicity; I think she's had more of an opportunity to get used to the scrutiny than other royals. Hopefully that bodes well for much happiness and longevity. I was fortunate enough to live in Britain for many years growing up and even met the Queen, Prince Phillip, and Prince Charles. I was not able to meet my favorite royal, Princess Diana. Like most girls I grew up desperately wanting to be her, fancy jewels, pretty dresses, unfortunately we didn't know until much later that there was also much unhappiness. I hope the newest addition to the royal family enjoys the pomp and circumstance along with love and support.
The dress, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It reminds me of another royal wedding where a "commoner" married a king- Princess Grace Kelly. I think that's a pretty good person to pattern your wedding dress, or any dress after. Like Grace Kelly, Duchess Catherine was full of poise and classic beauty. Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
