Weeks of speculation wrapped Friday as Kate Middleton‘s bridal dress was revealed to be designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen‘s fashion house.

“Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen’s work,” said the palace in a statement.

We may never again see hats as wacky as the ones worn by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie to Prince William‘s wedding.

British royals love their over-the-top headgear, and this great state occasion was no exception.

Whether they were royals proper like the princesses, or just international celebs like Victoria Beckham, the nobility in attendance went all out with the extreme toppers—except for the Prime Minister’s wife Samantha Cameron. She took a rebellious, non-conformist approach by wearing no hat at all, instead choosing to finish off her look with a jeweled clip. (Unforgivable violation of crazy-royal-hat etiquette or no big deal? Discuss in the comments!)

Royal wedding: Prince William and Kate Middleton marry – President Obama Not Invited

In Breaking News, Celebrity News on April 29, 2011 at 4:39 pm

A stylish marriage for William and Kate

The crowds cheered  as Prince William emerged from Westminster Abbey with his bride on his arm. A stunning bride, Kate Middleton – now Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge – joined The Firm amid the pomp and pageantry Britain prides itself on performing so eloquently.

Before a global television audience of many millions, Kate played her part to perfection. From the dress – by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, kept a secret until the last moment and sending the British fashion industry into paroxyms of ecstacy – to the 1936 Cartier diamond tiara loaned by the Queen, she looked every inch the fairytale princess.

Which, of course, she was not. The Queen’s conferring of the ancient title of Duke of Cambridge on her grandson just hours before the ceremony deprived his wife of the title Princess Catherine. But she is a duchess, which is still very much royalty.

And this time around, thirty years after Prince Charles and Princess Diana wed, the bride did not forget her groom’s name and the groom did not stumble over the wedding vows. Everything appeared to go without a hitch.

After the couple said their vows, in which she did not promise to obey William, the archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, declared: “I pronounce that they be man and wife together, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.”

They spent a private moment together with their families as they signed the marriage register.

The congregation included heads of state, diplomats, charity workers and the couple’s friends. David Beckham, prominently displaying his OBE on the right lapel of his Ralph Lauren morning suit, was accompanied by his pregnant wife Victoria. Elton John, the singer, and Guy Ritchie, the film director, were among the celebrity faction.

We just recently posted via our blog a complete list of dignitaries, royalty and friends that were invited. Ironically President Obama and First Lady Michielle was not on the list, which to many constitutes a royal snub.

So what’s the truth? Was this a snub? As far as I can tell, all signs point to no. According to FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan website operated by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, the Obamas weren’t alone among world leaders in not receiving invitations. In fact, a spokesman for Prince Charles told the website in February that “no other heads of state other than those from foreign royal families have been invited to the wedding.”

Count Down To Prince William and Kate’s Wedding

Prince William prepares to walk down the aisle…..

The countdown is on for Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s highly anticipated royal wedding. The invitations have been mailed out for the Friday, April 29 event.

Of course, everybody is talking about the wedding dress and who the designer will be.

“This is being treated as a state secret; it really is being shrouded in secrecy,” says Katie. “[Kate’s] determined to keep the wedding dress a secret. When she leaves the Goring Hotel, she’s having a marquee specially created over the entrance so that no one will get a glimpse of her until she enters Westminster Abbey.”

Approximately 1,900 invitations were sent out last week. Among the guests are over 1,000 of Prince William and Miss Middleton’s family and friends; over 50 Members of the royal family; over 40 members of foreign royal families; over 200 members of government, parliament and diplomatic corps; approximately 80 guests drawn from Prince William’s charities; 60 governors-general and realm prime ministers; and 30 Members of the defence services.

“The wedding is being split into two parts,” says Katie. “The majority of the people at this wedding are going to be friends of the couple. … It’s not a state wedding. This really is a wedding for their family and friends.”

Following the wedding, approximately 600 people have been invited to the lunchtime reception at Buckingham Palace given by The Queen, and around 300 people have been invited to the dinner at Buckingham Palace given by The Prince of Wales.

Prince William, Kate Middleton Officially Engaged!

It’s official..a royal wedding fit for a Prince and Princess in the spring of 2011!

Prince Williams and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton released to the world a full a set of official engagement portraits Saturday, December 11th, shot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino.

Testino is the same photographer who took iconic pictures of Princess Diana shortly before her 1997 death.

In the couple’s official portraits taken Nov. 25 in St. James’s Palace, London, Kate — who will now be known as Catherine — puts her 18 carat diamond on display. The platinum ring, which features an oval blue sapphire surrounded by 14 smaller white diamonds, is the same engagement ring that belonged to William’s late mother.

According to the Washington Post, Prince Williams ask the Queen not to make him a Duke. There has been much speculation about this and sources close to the royal family feel the Queen  faces an interesting dilemma over what to call Kate after Prince Williams suggests that she should become Princess Catherine . I’m sure the Prince wishes will be obliged.

The happy couple will wed April 29, 2011 and their nuptials should be the biggest royal event since Prince Charles married Princess Diana in 1981.
