Hi everyone!

Here's my oh-so-important opinion on how the big players looked at the Royal Wedding.

Kate M: 7/10. She looked like a foxier Imogen from Big Brother, and that is saying something!!!!!!!!!

Pippa M: 10/10. Out of pure interest, does anyone know her relationship status, as I would like to thoroughly disappoint her.

Beatrice: Hmmmmmmm. Did she get dressed in the dark? Soz, not even with a barge pole. This isn't an opinion, it's a fact.

I hoped you liked the Royal Wedding. I think I would be underplaying it if I said it was the best day of my life.

I am genuinely interested as to whether or not you agree with the ratings that I have made, and I simply can't wait to find out what you all think!!!!

That is how for now.

I wasn't sure what to expect from Catherine but this dress blew me away. It is timeless, detailed without being fussy. Like the best of all wedding dresses it will look as lovely 50 years from now as it did today.

The dress was absolutely beautiful and appropriate without being over the top.

Whenever I've looked at Sarah Burton's designs during this engagement, I mostly saw extreme designs that would have been really awful for something like this. With apologies to any of her fans, I have to say, "Who knew Sarah Burton could create something so normal looking?"

I'm so glad that the dress was perfect, the tiara was perfect, and the event went off without a hitch.

Kinda changed my mind now. Loved Pippas dress more than Kates one. The back view around the hip was weird. And why oh why did she made her make-up by herself? Why not hiring a make-up-artist! I don't mind if she wears that black-liner on a normal day or official event but not on her WEDDING! The Tiara was amazing :)

Well said! I absolutely agree. This is the style of dress I imagined her in.

The dress is growing on me somewhat- though still think it's a bit too much like Graces to be considered original but liked it more later in the day!

I can not believe she and William are finally wed- it's surreal, wonder how it is for her

Did anyone else think Carole and Mike looked a bit sad (or maybe just nervous) on balconey?

Natural for parents to feel sad, proud and happy all in the same breath. Felt that way as all 4 of my children married. Glad they are grown up and responsible. The Middletons probably feel that way too. They also know they probably won't see as much of their daughter as normal families might with official duties and etc. It was a beautiful wedding and a handsome groom and a stunning bride--just right all round. I don't care if it "looked" like Pcss Grace, it was all KATE!!!

I think Kate looked almost sad compared to glowing Victoria last summer. Maybe she should've gotten the small wedding she wished for. I wish she would've chosen an updo to frame her face. Now she looked flat-headed. I also wish she would've chosen a professional make up artist. She could've done without the sad panda eyes.

I think there must have been times through the ceremony when the enormity of the occasion must have hit her - and yes that does reflect at times in some of the shots in the cathedral. No amount of practice could have prepared her for the actual experience. Remember that Victoria was born royal. But Kate's smiles and genuine warmth with William plus her natural elegance and beautiful appearance made her a glowing bride nonetheless.

Yes, she seems very shy. That reminds me of Diana a little. But she seems genuinely in love and I hope the two of them will become very happy. I hope she grows in her role and becomes more confident like Diana did.

That's like asking why Camilla doesn't cut that freaking mop of hair. It's just part of her personal look.

I loved her smokey eyes, dramatic look.

Wonder what Bobbi Brown shadows she used?Guess I'll have to call Nordstroms and ask if they know..

I liked the dress. It suited Kate and thankfully wasn't too big or too simple. Kate obviously must like Princess Grace wedding dress as it was very similar in style.

I have to be honest though as much as I like it, it is not going to be at the top of my list as my favourite ever royal wedding dress.

Beautiful elegant timeless wedding dress! Reminds me of Grace Kelly.
I also like the fact that she went for a small bouquet and a relatively short train, less is more.

Also loved Pippa's dress! When she was walking with Harry they looked like a wedding couple themselves!

I think Sarah Burton hit the right note with the dress; neither too plain nor too fussy.

So what if it is reminiscent of Grace Kelly's? Always borrow from the best!

HRH Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning today. I heard earlier someone say that "she wore the dress, the dress didn't wear her", and I couldn't agree with that statement more. The detailing on the dress was amazing, the tiara was unexpected and so appropriate and her hair was gorgeous. My one disappointment was that her makeup looked rather overdone for her. A little too much blush and eyeliner for me. Otherwise, great first impression as an HRH!
