The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: The Duchess of Kent's Gown this dress was lovely on the Duchess of Kate fitting perfectly into the era and the setting of the wedding in York - its how many imagine a royal wedding gown to be like

^^^^^

What exactly are you saying? Does it have anything to do with the Duke & Duchess of Kent's wedding?

This dress reminds me of Princess Margatet's.

I hate to say this, but Princess Anne's bridesmaid dress makes her look fat. Maybe it's just the cut of the dress, but she was a bit plump in those days. When I was that age (almost 11), I was 4 feet and only 50 pounds. I know, I was small for a going-on-11-year old, but once I started puberty, I grew another foot and my weight doubled over the next three years. When Anne left boarding school at 18, she was tall and slim from all that horseback riding and team sports.

Prince Edward was in his regiment's old ceremonial uniform of scarlet and blue, complete with sword.
Special permission had to be obtained from the War Office for Prince Edward to wear this dress uniform on the occasion of his wedding day.

The Duchess of Kent's wedding dress is one of my favourites.

This is one of my favorites to watch again and again. The bride and groom looked radiantly happy and it's easy to see why their marriage has lasted despite the lengthy difficulties they have endured over the years.

As a bonus, you can see Diana's parents, then Viscount and Viscountess Spencer, at the 4:07 mark. Their daughter Jane was a godchild of the Duke of Kent as served as a bridesmaid. Viscountess Spencer would give birth to Diana a month later.
