Here trips the bride: Sophie Winkleman almost takes a tumble as she marries Freddie Windsor | Mail Online

I see it now in this picture, it is indeed a bit too much, they are so much exposed she almost could carry them on a platter before her.

I am also glad this wedding is over for the simple fact that we no longer (one hopes) have a daily trashing of the Kents in the Daily Mail.

So the bride tripped on her wedding day, must one be so evil?

Granted, I think Sophie's dress was not nearly as bad as that and looks 100x better than others I've seen. My opinion is that lace, being so intricate and delicate needs a dress w/ clean lines and shape and a matte fabric to display it. A bolero jacket in another fabric (perhaps w/ some embroidery to echo those on the skirt) would have been better.
Agreed! Agreed! And I have looked up the program that you mentioned, Say Yes to the Dress, and I totally did not like what I saw.
Nearly everything is the same!

I guess being special on your big day doesn't matter anymore!

For people like me and you, a royal wedding is the only occasion where you still get to see a dress in sort of old-fashioned style.
I don't know why brides choose strapless dresses - I think it's cheap, as if you did not find it worth the effort to choose a nice dress that actually looks like a dress and not a white table cloth. Less is not always more.

I find the fact that the Daily Mail keeps on saying she takes herbal valium funny how do they know what she takes if anything

Palace sources of course, Susan_Alicia! Silly you

I must say, I have witnessed a couple of British royal weddings from the sidelines, and I have never seen so much negative press for someone who is 31st in the line for the throne. What has Freddie ever done for people to be so nasty?

Cant anyone have a nice wedding day without all the negativity?

Good for the couple for moving outside of England to LA! I am sure the press if they stayed in England would just be nasty.

I like the wedding gown. A little old fashioned, I like top part of the dress but I don't like the material (taffeta I think ??). Bolero is quite nice, I think that bride can choose different hairstyle - a little up-do would be better.

Sophie and Frederick look so happy and I wish them all the best

Yes, he is Marie Christine's son....but children should never pay for the alleged sins of the mother or father.
Its amazing how the human race is becoming more advanced with technology but we are becoming less and less civil to each other. But that is another topic for another day.

I hope they find much love and success in LA but come back to England for special occassions. I have never heard of this new show.

In my opinion this wedding was nice, privet and family occasion, as it should be in their situation (they aren't heirs to the throne).I must say that H.R.H. Princes Michael overshadowed everybody. She definitly is royal lady. Her jewels are impressive!!!

I didn't like the lace sleeves. They didn't seem to go with the dress. But I liked the rest of the dress. I don't know why Princess Michael had that pink thing on the side of her head. Her hair was styled very nicely, she didn't need that and it didn't match. Her necklace was gorgeous! And Prince Michael looked dashing.
I wish the couple all the best in their life together.

I think the bride's dress and the mother of the groom's dress were a tad low cut. But I am puzzled by the variability of what the guests wore, IMO it seemed like they were going to different events, some more formal than others.

And I guess it's to be expected that so much attention would be paid to Princess Michael, she attracts it without having to do very much purposefully.

I thought that Lady Frederick Windsor's wedding dress was awfully low-cut. In fact, the neckline--can one call it a neckline?--reminded me of a low-cut dress that Princess Michael wore to the Silver and Gold Ball in 1986. http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/51...-Entertainment

That is just what they were waiting for... IMO Marie-Christine would have stolen the attention if she had worn a potato sack with those jewels and her beautiful face. But thats only my very own opinion... Freddie and Sophie looked very relaxed and happy on the Airport, I like Sophie's turquoise ring.

It is nice to see Lord and Lady Frederic Windsor looking happy. This is the main thing. I wish them all the best.
As for the hysterically negative media coverage, it is impossible to make mass media outlets stop reporting some cheap sensational articles, which are gulped down by the British public, who tend to come across as disgruntled.
