There was also a no fly zone back in 2013 when William and Kate took baby George to Buckleberry after he was born. It's more for security than anti paparazzi.

Royal Children Play as Pippa Leaves the Church

So lovely
Thanks for this full video. Now I can see that Prince George really wasn't acting up that much. It was one of the other boys flinging his basket around that got Georgie a little excited and he started doing the same, and Kate quickly stopped him and then ushered the kids over to the vehicle.

Unless the pictures of Kate scolding Prince George further were taken by the side of the vehicle when they were out of camera shot from the video's angle. Anyway, George is barely four years old, and a little restless excitement is to be expected. Prince William at age four was much more of a cut-up pulling faces inside the church at Fergie's wedding in his sailor suit and hat.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were very sweet. Even at age two, Princess Charlotte looks to be a delightful, self-possessed young lady. Oh boy, prayers for George when he grows up and the girls and the media start in after him. At least he's got grounded parents and grandparents to guide him safely...

Seeing as this bunch is on the complete opposite spectrum as that ilk, we got to see a stunning gown that fit beautifully (the tailoring was spot on) and was pure class from head to toe. Luckily we have lovely people to provide balance from the tacky trashy world of the SYTTD crowd. Which sadly seems to be here to stay.


I truly don't understand the need to insult one type of person in order to compliment another, particularly the body shaming in the original post. All brides look beautiful on their wedding days.

"Hanging onto a grainy photo..." What a strange turn of phrase there @royal_rob. Who would need to do that aside from relentless paps and tabloids? This was Pippa's day, and it was quite lovely, yes?

I'm so glad that the media were foiled from any screeching, OTT headlines. And btw, absolutely no one was looking 'sad,' and not a horse nor carriage in sight, eh!

All of Pippa's grandparents are dead. The last one was Mike's father Peter died in 2010. William and Kate delayed the announcement of their engagement a few days because of it

No they don't, thats a big batch of PC crap.
As for Kim Kardashian, her wedding dress for her 2nd wedding was beautiful and she looked more beautiful than Pippa IMO, even in a strapless gown. Bringing up Kim to prop up Pippa is a low blow.
And strapless gowns can look very beautiful when worn the right way.

I would say it's more acknowledging that everyone deserves to feel beautiful on their special occasions and that it's quite unkind for people to remark negatively on the appearance of brides, particularly when it involves body shaming. It contributes to the things that make many people feel bad about themselves.


I will always stand by that as to how people should behave.

If you are speaking of my mention of grandparents, I was referring to the Middletons being Prince George's grandparents. Obviously, he has the Queen and Prince Philip too as great-grands, at least for a while, but the Middleton grands are younger. And then there's Grandad Charles, and step-grandmom Camilla, whom I almost forgot about.

If a bride baby person etc. does not look attractive to my eye I am not going to lie and say they do. If you want to play that game feel free to do so.

Does anyone have a shot of Pippa's hair from the back. I can't get a good look at it but it appears messy like it was a rush job, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm not seeing it clearly.

No, I meant Jame's grandparents and Pippa's grandparents!

I think these two are some of the sweetest photos of the day. Dad looking at his little girl and knowing he isn't her main man and special hero anymore and that's official after he walks her up the aisle.

Look at Dad's face:

And Pippa's:

I don't think Micheal got a lot of such opportunities both in the weeks before the wedding and when he walked Catherine up the aisle. He was probably too tense and didn't want to make any mistakes in front of the world. Either way, I think he thought they were both marrying the men they loved.

James may very well be. Or his sister, or Spencer. Or his father may sell the estate and split the money between his kids. The title is tied to the land. Honestly if I was James, I'd want Eden rock instead (family has three estates and three kids, so each could get one, the third being the actual family home). Glen isn't very profitable it seems. Eden is, and he and Pippa love going there on vacation.

No one knows what will happen to that title until both parents die. As no need for dowager, the widow should still be legal owner if her husband dies first.

Pippa may not have married a title, but she married real money. And modern times that is far more practical. Some so called titles have little more than the title.
Clearly this wedding shows the power of modern capital! I am awe struck by the various Matthews properties, imagine having to choose between the romantic Scots castle and the cool Caribbean resort! But which is the third...do tell, so I can go into that room of Bluebeard's castle!

Caunton manor in Nottingham. Unlike Eden and Glen, it is private. It is their family residence where the kids were raised, when not on holiday at Eden.

I believe it is this

Reynolds Hole and how he fell in love with roses

Sorry old photo. There are two manors in the area, but this is the one referred to as Caunton manor. It is on 30 acre estate.

So apparently the press was wrong about Spencer Matthews being the best man. After countless articles saying he was now it turns out that some guy named Justin Johanssen was the best man. Someone needs to post the wedding program online somewhere


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...leton-dog.html

Probably they only thing the press got right was the couple and location of the wedding

Spencer Matthews is still good looking as anything.
