I prefer it too. As beautiful as Kate's MCQueen dress is, and how absolutely magnificent it was designed, I feel like it has already kind of aged.

Is there any truth to the rumors that the Yorks and Middletons dislike each other?

Wasn't Beatrice just at a garden party at Buckingham? Surely she could have stayed a few more days?

I have a sister and I'm not invited to everything she's invited to. We are separate people. Perhaps Eugenie is Pippa's friend and Bea is not. With all the made up stories and outright lies told about the Middletons over the years, I wouldn't be surprised if the story of the York princesses "hating" the Middleton girls is just another in a long line of unfounded stories. Eugenie looked very happy to be at this wedding. Perhaps Bea is simply not close to Pippa. I don't see a story here.

The York's relationship with the Middleton's happened through William and Catherine. There was never any fighting between the parties. That's just tabloid and online gossip. Done to pit the Middleton's against the royals.

If the Yorks and Middletons really disliked each other, Eugenie would not have been there. As far as Beatrice, she probably had better personal fun she would rather do.

We will see soon enough. If there is a deal then we should soon see photos from inside the reception and the evening party.

I also read that the Middletons refused the offers.
Well Pippa and James don't need the money, and I think well of them for refusing.


As for Beatrice, since she is now in London she could have gone.
The DM said she was invited, but they've said so many incorrect things about this wedding that I don't know how accurate that is.

Everything which is so not-SYTTD is already a winner! Yesterday's dress was restraint en because of that it very refined and stylish.
Oh absolutely! Classy. I too was afraid of a strapless number but most of those gowns have started to fade out, thank heavens. I think all of the Middleton's dress in conservative style anyway, so this beauty is just perfect for them. This traditional gown will be still in style many years from now.

Yes you are correct as far as fashions reverting back a few decades. One fashion house acknowledged his love of 1940s and 1950 style, but hated the 60 & 70. I could swear that the dress Kate wore to Pippa's wedding reminded me of a dress my mother had back after the war. Something still seen in old black and white WWII movies. Just the neckline was different along with hat.

Eugenie also went to Marlborough like all the Middletons siblings did. She would have been the same time as James for period. They would have mutual friends. James lived with Pippa for a long time in the Chelsea flat that Kate used live in. Their circle of friends would probably intersect a lot. James and Donna went to Eugenie costume birthday day party last year. It has to be more that just the W&K connection because it doesn't appear that W&K often socialize with Eugenie and Jack. That's more of Harry's thing hanging out with his York cousins. There is a big age gap between William and Eugenie and they are at different points in their life. One married with 2 little kids and the other with a long term boyfriend. Can't really see Eugenie and Jack popping over to Norfolk to visit like you can with the Tindalls.

Of course I have no clue if Princess Bea was invited or not, but she is only a few months out of a 10-year relationship, and her former partner's engagement has just been announced. Perhaps she did not feel up to attending a wedding at the moment, especially if neither the bride nor groom are a close friend or relative.
Friends of many years of my family did not attend my youngest brother's wedding because their daughter and her fiance had just canceled their wedding and my parents' friends knew a wedding would be too hard emotionally.

Again, we'll probably never know, just another possibility.

It's easy for the press to spin as social climbing. Class warfare sells look at the Daily Mail and the Middletons aren't going to fight back. They will keep their mouths shut and take the high road.
Speaking of the Percy's, did anyone spot George or Pippa's tennis partner, Melissa at the wedding?

Well, it was Melissa's 30th birthday yesterday. If she wasn't there she might of had her own celebrations going on.

I didn't even spot George, and he and Pippa are supposed to be such great friends.
(Though perhaps he was there, and I didn't see him).

But Tom Van Straubenzee was there, so maybe that's why Melissa Percy stayed away? They haven't been divorced that long, and it could be awkward.

I highly doubt her ex husband attending would be reason to keep Melissa away. Her and Pippa have been friends for many years. In these social circles, exes usually continue to mingle as they have the same friends.

If her and George weren't there, they could be as we don't have photos of all the guests, it was because they had other things. I highly doubt it was a vote who has a better friendship Pippa and Melissa vs Tom and James, on who would attend.

Its also very possible that these people just mentioned could have been part of the larger evening party. There were only so many people that could fit into that church.
