Please please please does anyone have the full coverage of the wedding available for download ? Not just the ceremony, I'd like everything that was aired. I heard the British coverage was very long.

Check the Royal Chanel on YouTube. They had the live coverage up on there for a while.

Kate's, definitely. I discern the hand of the Prince of Wales in this ....

Especially since he touted a long BBC4 tv programme on Hubert Parry, the composer of much of the music.

Lotsa never before seen photos on this website. Most of the one's I've never seen have been scanned from magazines.

Blog de theprincessdianafan2 - Blog de sur Princess Diana , Willam & Catherine et Harry - Skyrock.com

Since it's constantly being updated the pages change so just go through a few pages and you'll start seeing the wedding updates.

The close up of Kate in the military style dress/coat is a bit disappointing in the way it is so poorly fitted through the torso. It's too small and it pulls! Also, brooches with stems should always be worn stem up.

She still looks nice, tho.

Actually since I figure eventually the wedding pages will be too far back for most people to search for, I decided to just post the individual links of the photos I've never seen before from the wedding(including the service the guests, arrivals, departures and pre-wedding events) Some of these also include pics we have seen before but in different angles.

So with all those huge hats, do you think all the guests could see what was going on, or did some have such an obstructed view that they were playing games on their iPods?

Won't it be a bit tricky to play a game on one's iPod when electronic devices were not permitted in the Abbey? Then again, if no one bothered to check bags, the said devices could be snuck in, kind of like small voice recorders are snuck into theatres and concerts. The ushers don't bother checking bags, so it's quite easy to make bootleg recordings.

Indeed, in my eyes and ears that is the most unlogical thing.

Perhaps that "rule" isn't followed any more. I'm not bothered one way or the other.

Do people really care about unimportant details anymore?

I can understand the "angst" about Kate losing weight, but who cares about fripperies ? (Lovely word...)

I have two questions about the wedding. The first one regards the order of precedence in the seating of royal guests at the Abbey, and the second question (which has two parts) relates to the liturgy itself.

1. It makes sense that reigning monarchs were sitting in the first row of royal guests: Margrethe of Denmark, the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg, the King and Queen of Norway. If I have it right, I believe that they were seated in order of oldest to youngest monarchy (i.e., Denmark is the oldest, so Queen Margrethe got the best seat). After the reigning monarchs, the Crown Princely couples were seated... but why were Philip and Mathilde of Belgium seated in the first row and given precedence over Willem-Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands? If I have my dates right, the House of Orange-Nassau has reigned in Holland since 1815, whereas the Belgian monarchy was not instituted until 1830. Is it because the Belgian royal family is from the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and therefore "family" of Queen Elizabeth II? Also, the Bourbons of Spain - who have ruled since 1700 - were seated after the Belgian and the Dutch crown princely couples. It was also interesting to see that Queen Sofia of Spain - a Queen Consort but nevertheless a Queen - was seated with her son, Prince Felipe, and his wife, rather than in the first row. Any clues as to what aspects of protocol might have shaped the seating arrangement in this way?

2. I am reasonably well acquainted with - and very interested in - Anglican/Episcopal liturgical practice, and I was surprised to see that at the end of the service:
(a) the bride and groom processed out of the Abbey after the clergy, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, and
(b) the congregation remained seated when the Cross was processing out of the Abbey, but everyone stood for the bride and groom at the end.
I'll confess that I found both of these things somewhat shocking, as they give human beings (in this case the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whom I find lovely but who are still mere mortals) precedence over God.

I'd be very grateful to anyone who could address any of these questions!

The Royal Wedding Dress on display at Buckingham Palace

Who's going to see the beautiful dress? The Royal Wedding dress exhibition is already open. What do you think of the setting? A bit creppy maybe?

The lighting does look a bit dark in the photos but under the spot lights the dress is shown off beautifully. One can get a closer look at all the splendid lace detail and of course the back of the dress with all the buttons. Really lovely. What a labour that must have been but then again a wonderful signature statement from a very talented British designer.
