Style Sunday: Royal Newlyweds
Why all the fuss? What is the significance of Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding?
For starters, it represents a history in the making. There will never be another Prince William. On top of that, the Will and Kate love story is a modern-day fairytale. This is the kind of stuff Disney movies are made of. Every girl dreams of meeting her own prince charming and Kate, now Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, met a real prince, who happens to be actually charming. What could explain the attraction between them? Apart from the obvious fact that Kate is beautiful and bright they are from different worlds.
I think she offers him a sense of normalcy in his life and that is something he didn't truly experience until he met her. As they say, he is his mother’s boy and the typical pretentious and constricted royal life isn’t for him yet it is inevitably a part of his life. Deep down inside I think he wants what his mother wanted for herself. You can tell a lot about a man from the woman he chooses to be with. Kate is his breath of fresh air and Will is her knight in shining armour.
After hitting some highs and lows the couple finally tied the knot. Their every move has been carefully recorded and reported in the press ever since their first official appearance together. It's no surprise that the wedding even has its own website and that it was televised in 180 countries. The wedding was a television phenomenon and I would say it was very 'stylish' too. It pushed as many boundaries as it could.
Kate is the Princess Diana of today.
The British people love her and are even more fascinated and enchanted with her now than ever before.
She looked resplendent and that dress, oh the much anticipated dress, it did not fail us. All eyes were on her and only her. (Sorry Wills, you looked dashing but that's just how it is)
I loved the maple and hornbeam trees which respectively symbolised humility and reserve, and resilience. I think they helped create a friendly ambiance as without them Westminster Abbey would look majestic but also very intimidating. I also think its transformation signified a fresh, new start for the royal family or as some like to call it, the modernisation of the royal family.
Speaking of family, don't you think Prince Harry and Kate's younger sister, Pippa, looked great as well? Some even thought Pippa stole the show with her white dress.
The bridesmaids were cute but I thought the page boys looked even more adorable. Little boys dressed up in adult men's clothes always make me go "Awww!".
The royal wedding cake. Now that is what I call a wedding cake.
Kate's simple and classic reception dress. Look how tiny her waist is!
Unfortunately, I think the newly-wed prince donned a boring-looking suit.
Nevertheless, I still think they are a great looking pair.
This was taken yesterday after it was announced that they won't be going on their honeymoon this weekend.
There are many speculations about where they will be heading for their honeymoon later this year;
Kenya, Australia, New Zealand, and even Jordan is on the list.
I guess we'll have to wait and see!
