The bride's dress is lovely. That's exactly the kind of dress I want to wear at my own wedding.

I'm with you. The Duchess looks to be enjoying herself.

I only wish I had that 'stick frame'. She's fit, and looks great.

Yes, she is. The way she carries herself has a great deal to do with it.

Wow! Everyone looked simply wonderful - but the bride outshines all ladies. What a beautiful wedding dress this is and a beautiful woman. I loved the Duchhess dress but I am simply not a fan of her little somethings that we call hats. I simply hate such nonsense on ones head. Also Pippa Middleton looked rediculous with this flower though I liked her dress. Mrs Middleton looked very nice and chic as well.

It really is possibly my favorite wedding dress I've ever seen. I'd LOVE to know where I could get a similar dress

The wedding dress isn't that great, but I suppose it was a small wedding. I could see a dress like that bein worn by one of the princesses to a dinner or gala. Also this is one of the rare times where I don't think Pippa looks ug... .. unattractive to me.

The wedding dress seems a bit too loose on top, but it is very pretty and suits the bride (who looks to be a somewhat angular woman).

Even though I think the top looks a little large she gets bonus points for wearing a rather unique dress. At least it's not one of the ubiquitous strapless ones that make everyone look the same.

Apparently this is a family heirloom dress which she wore.

Agreed - that lace is delicious.

Why do people still refer to her as Kate Middleton when she is now HRH Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, she is longer a commoner, but married into royalty

It's not so much people that do it - it is the tabloids. They excell at INhuman.

The BBC is a left wing rag.

It's a term of endearment

My experience as a media writer tells me it's actually a simple answer and not one designed to be disrespectful, but rather to be expedient and to fulfill the objective of the article/story/headline.

Everyone knows the name Kate Middleton.

The name "Duchess of Cambridge" is not as immediately recognizable and requires an additional descriptor such as "wife of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge" or some such.

"Duchess Kate" or "Duchess Catherine" is (a) wrong in terms of style and (b) wrong in terms of how it sounds, it has an "off key ring" to the ear, if you will.

She is not yet a Princess so that cannot be used.

YMMV

Duchess pays tribute.

Duchess of Cambridge 'saddened' at death of 15-year-old boy she met on Far East tour | UK News | Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express

Sad story. I'm glad the Duchess was able to make this little boy's dream come true

A number of posts have been removed.

Discussion topics ranging across eating disorders, anorexia, muscle mass, unhealthy athletes, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Hendricks have little or no relevance to the Duchess of Cambridge current events.

Thanks for everyone's understanding and cooperation.

No but the BBC is a mouthpiece for the left and the socialists.
