Prince William and Kate’s Royal Wedding!

“Every wedding is a royal wedding”

– The Bishop of London
during Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding

The moment we’d all been waiting for arrived on Friday! After catching only a glimpse of Kate as she traveled to Westminster Abbey, the Rolls Royce in which she and her father were riding came to a halt.

She stepped out…and we, along with over 2 billion people in 180 countries, were wowed!


Glittering beneath a sheer, diaphanous veil of ivory tulle hand-embroidered with flowers was the diamond Cartier “Halo” tiara! Originally a gift from the Queen’s father to her mother in 1936, it was given to Queen Elizabeth on her 18th birthday. Imagine having something so spectacular as your “something borrowed”? It perfectly complemented the custom diamond drop earrings her parents gave her as a wedding gift.

After we stopped exclaiming how beautiful she looked, we took in her gorgeous gown. Inspired by Grace Kelly and designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, Kate’s gown was the perfect balance of modern, classic, and elegant…just like the bride. Wearing her gown crafted from silk gazar, hand-embroidered with lace, and fastened with 58 buttons and a blue ribbon, Kate took our breath away!

We’re not the only ones! During Kate’s four-minute walk down the aisle, Prince Harry looked back to see her and, with a smile, whispered something to Prince William. Then Will murmured,  “You look beautiful,” as she walked toward him.

After their traditional ceremony in Westminster Abbey, Will and Kate, now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and officially man and wife, walked down the aisle together. Outside, they climbed into a 106-year old open carriage for their trip back to Buckingham Palace, smiling, waving and clearly on cloud nine.

At 8:25am, the newlyweds appeared on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for a kiss, and made history with a second. When Will kissed his bride for the first time, the crowd didn’t approve, chanting “one more kiss” until they kissed again, much to everyone’s delight.

Later that day, Prince William and Kate tooled around in an Aston Martin decorated in ribbons, balloons and a license plate that read JU5T WED!


We wish Prince William and Kate the very best, and hope their days are filled with as much love and laughter as their wedding day!
