to me was stange see to anthony and don't to sarah because both are divorced, but anthony was in contact with the royal family for many many partys in all this time since his divorce.

margaret was in the photo with all the guest, she was with a green dress but in the photo with the ''close'' family she wans't and anthony yes is, you remenber that photo?

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

It is with Edward and I would assume Sophie godparents, that is why the Duchess of Kent and Duke of Gloucester are in that one without there spouses. (The other two godparents for Edward are Prince Louis of Hesse who is dead and Princess George of Hanover (Philip sister, aka Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark.

Like a pirate map, but way cooler.

omg i remember watching the wedding on TLC and I actually taped it. The wedding was simple but elegant. And sophie looked wonderful. I remember at that time alot people were saying that there was a resemblance between Sophie and Diana.

Countess of Wessex Wedding Gown Question

Ok so I have read that her gown was a sleek white gown and that the coat covering it was a cover and train. Has anyone ever seen the gown underneath the coat? Does anyone have rarely seen images of this gown? Seems they didn't release many photos of this wedding behind closed doors as other weddings.
Thanks in advance!

MichelleVA, to my knowledge no photos exist of the dress underneath the coat. The coat was worn during the ceremony, and she is wearing the coat on all official photos that were released.

For all know they might actually have been sewn together. A good place to ask would be Madame Tosaud's. They were given an exact copy.

Sophie (as well as Diana and Sarah) had a great veil. I loved the way Diana's had mother of pearl embellishments on it. Sophie's hung perfectly. I think that one of the reasons all the BRF brides had very long front/fingertip veils was so that they hung nicely, in a single thickness which both slightly obscured the face for tradition and also allowed the 'crowd' to see.

I agree with you. But I don't like Sophie's wedding dress. She was able to choose something more interesting.

I watched this royal wedding at my Uncle Jeremy's house. I can't believe they've now been married 10 years.

As for the veil, I don't think it makes any difference as to the bride's status, more a matter of personal preference. Sophie's veil was turned back before the ceremony (as appears also to be the case with Autumn Kelly when she married Peter Phillips in May last year).

As for Sophie's train, I'd say about 6 to 8' long.

In that last pic of the couple on the chapel steps, Sophie looks as though she's wearing trousers under her trained coat.
