The Cast

Just like any other royal wedding, the marriage of Kate Middleton to Prince William is full of A-list stars. The big names include:

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Princess Diana
  • Catherine Parker
  • Michael Parker
  • Mark Parker
  • Barbara Hutton
  • Peter Jones
  • Jackie Kennedy
  • Lady Barbara Hutton
  • Tom Parker
  • Sarah Ferguson

The supporting cast is just as interesting. The best-known members of the royal family’s entourage include:

  • Mandy Rice-Davies
  • Zara Phillips
  • Lalla Ward
  • Caroline Anstead
  • Susan Denham
  • Virginia Graham
  • Judy Garland

These are just a handful of the dozens of famous faces who were at the wedding. Like any other royal affair, the wedding was a spectacular event. It was broadcast live in the UK and around the world, and it was one of the most-watched events of the year. Between engagements, the newlyweds spent five days and nights at the wedding festivities in London. On the evening of the big day, the happy couple shared their first dance as husband and wife.

The Big Question

What will happen now that Kate Middleton is Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter? Will she continue to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps and take on the role in an effort to promote women’s rights? Or will her reign be more like that of her ancestor, King George, who reigned for less than a year before abdicating the throne?

It’s an intriguing question, and one that will no doubt be debated for years to come.

The Stylings

On the wedding day, Kate wore a cream silk gown with a long train and matching cap. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, the talented designer who created the Duchess of Cambridge’s famous wedding dress. Sarah’s design drew inspiration from the famous designer Herve Leger, whose bohemian-chic designs were very popular in the 1960s.

Some sources claim that the bride’s mother, Carole Middleton, wore a matching look when she walked down the aisle. Other reports say that Carole wore a beautiful ivory satin dress with a long train and veil. Kate’s grandmother, the Queen, looked regal in an ivory gown with a matching hat and cap. Her dress was designed by renowned fashion designer Norman Hartnell.

What is the fashion style of the Royal family? Is it based on the British upper classes, or modern-day royalty? One thing is for sure: no matter what the design of the outfit, the Duchess of Cambridge will always be beautiful.
