I agree completely!
The media made this event sound like it would be some tacky circus, but it was lovely and tasteful. (Must make the Middleton detractors so disappointed).

I also agree about James Matthews. The press has tried to portray him as an opportunistic social-climber, to no avail. He comes across as a very nice level-headed man, and he must love Pippa very much to put up with the many nasty comments in the papers about her and her family (and by extension, his family!)

You know there's a great deal of disappointment that everyone didn't get a chance to see Harry and Meghan at the wedding and not likely to see them at the receptions.

Absolutely. Or be placed on the Op-Ed page [purely opinion or editorial]. That is exactly what those pages are for. People's personal opinions. All other articles should have some sense of proof that facts are being presented.

I am sure that if Harry wanted to be seen with Meghan at the reception, it would have been done. I honestly think they might enjoy just being a normal guest at a quasi family affair. The disappointed people will get over if someone doesn't publish photos eventually.

The bride looked lovely, and I am in the camp who liked her wedding look much more than her sister's. The dress, hair, make-up - all better IMO. Mazel tov to the happy couple!

She most certainly did! Best I have seen so far (after the bride, naturally)

Exactly! I have heard both that she was there (and entered the church through a side door), and that she wasn't there. My feeling is that she wasn't, but if she was, it just reeks of self-importance to me that she &/or Harry would think that they would overshadow the bride & groom. Yes, the media would go crazy with the pictures, but so what? To the people who should matter, Pippa & James' family and friends, the most important couple of the day is the one standing at the altar declaring their love for each other and their desire to spend the rest of their lives together.

Pippa looks lovely but I'm meh about the dress. Kate looks beautiful but her outfit is way too matronly for her.

They are a happy couple.

The Middleton family are a happy family indeed. They have their own coat of arms for God's sake.

Semi-royal is kinda a weird phrase.


I LOVE the black and white photo of them in the link. Great shot.

She is the future Princess of Wales, future Countess of Chester, future Queen. She has to look matronly.

Kate doesn't have to look matronly...she's worn some fairly daring evening gowns.

I don't think the dress looks matronly...it looks vintage. That deep vee is not matronly.

The jewels of Pippa Middleton's wedding
The long-awaited nuptials of Pippa Middleton, sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, took place today in Berkshire. Pippa married James Matthews at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, and there were both bridal and royal jewels on display.

I don't give a fig about Meghan. Why should she go to the wedding of someone she never has even met. If Harry want to be seen in public with her, then actually do it.

If not for that, she may have made a different choice.

Kate had no restrictions.
Nothing to with restrictions an up do just looks better- always.

"She is the future Princess of Wales, future Countess of Chester, future Queen. She has to look matronly."

Why?

What does having a family coat of arms have yo do with being happy

Many families have coats, and I am certain not all are happy.

I must give credit where credit is due. I did not post the video.

Queen Claude brought us the video. And if I'd bold it if I knew how. Thanks Claude.

I disagree, I think an updo can often be aging.
Pippa's looks fine, though.


I hope there will be some pictures of the evening party. I'd really like to see the dresses for that!

I agree, the wrong updo can be aging.

Pippas dress though called for one. With a keyhole back, defeats the purpose to hide it with hair. I wish Kate had worn hers up with her tiara.
