The photo is here. Exquisite photography I think.

I think this occurred while a hymn was being sung and the cameras were on Elton John for the ninth time in 10 minutes.

That could be one of the Grosvenor girls (Duke of Westminster's daughters). Looks like the back of Edwina. Not sure tho.

Yes, there was a folded blanket (green/blue tartan I think) on which had been placed a bouquet of flowers (lily of the valley or white heather with green leaf folliage) tied with a red ribbon. I'm surprised William didn;t squash it when he initially sat down facing the wrong way!

For me, Lady Kitty Spencer and her sisters Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer were the most beautiful girls in royal Wedding, except Kate, of course, cause that was HER day! Wills and Kate: !

Just curious...
Mrs. Cameron has never, ever worn a hat for anything. Not disrespectful in any way, shape or form. A woman's hair is headcovering enough.

About the Spencer girls and all the others their age --- why do they all wear clothes that are too small for them?

If you look at other royals in their cars, the person riding shotgun in front is usually their bodyguard. Also they had a Range Rover behind them which I assume are additional security folks just in case.
thanks!
i got the info about the photographer while reading online, her name is Millie Pilkington

I was watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central. An American show. I'm not sure if this is the right thread to mention it, but they and other satirical shows, comedy shows were banned footage of the wedding to use. Is it common for the royal family to ban footage of weddings to be used for humor?

I cannot wear anything on my head without getting a headache within a very short time. Perhaps Mrs C is similarly affected.

I had an opinion that The Royal Air Force will Gaddfi before The Royal Wedding, but they only killed his son and some his grandsons after The Royal Wedding.

Ahhh!!! Thanks. I was also wondering why i missed THIS moment! It should be a very magic moment! But all cameras were obsessed by Elton John, I was fed-up to see him again and again. I think he was the MORE covered person, out of the BRF!!

I have a strange question. The only time I have seen such young bridesmaids and attendants are at royal weddings. Is it an English thing? Or a Royal thing?

Most weddings I've been to, or been in, have a maid of honor and best man, as well as 2-3 bridesmaids and groomsmen who are friends/family of the bride and groom, and almost always over 18. The couple might include a "jr" bridesmaid in an effort to include a teenage family member, and it is common to have a flower girl and ring bearer that is a bit younger, but they would be the only young member of the bridal party. Here it seems the bridal party is mostly small children, and one "adult". Is that common?

I think it's very common in the UK. Usually there's no maid of honour, and bridesmaids are usually young.

That's the girl I was talking about! Lady Kitty Spencer. I thought her hat was the best in the entire church. I agree they were the prettiest girls there.

So are they Diana's nieces ?

Yes, they are Earl Spencer's (Diana's brother) daughters

It was VERY annoying, wasn't it? I watched the BBC coverage because frankly the American commentators talk too much, and display an almost embarrassing naivete and lack of knowledge regarding European royalty, history, traditions, etc.

The BBC got it just right, but the obsession with Sir Elton and his partner David Furnish was a major disappointment...I was left scratching my head and wonder how and when the bride had turned her veil back from her face.

Mariana Pazza, thank your for the photo of young Viscount Spencer...it's the first photo I have seen of him and I was beginning to wonder if he was even at the wedding!

The Three Graces(the Spencer girls) are indeed stunning, but I was surprised at how tight and....inappropriate their dresses were in church....

I'd say it's entirely dependent on the individuals involved: their preferences, and the ages represented in their friends and family. Often the sister/s of the bride and/or groom may be attendants, as well as close friends.

I was a bridesmaid twice as a child, and both times there were several adult bridesmaids and several little girls. No pageboys though (there may not have been any suitable little boys in the families at the time).

The Spencer girls are truly gorgeous, just wish their dresses had been one or two sizes larger. No matter how lovely or nice the figure I do not find that attractive. Unfortunately it looks very cheap. It must be the style these days as I see many young women in clothes that are just too small.

I'm glad you all liked the Spencer girls. "The Three Graces" is the most beautiful tittle for them , they really deserve it.
I've made a picture blog for Lady Kitty Spencer:

The Spencer girls don't stand out for me. They look just like your typical privileged blonde south africans. You see girls that look like them everywhere. Louis Spencer is quite handsome though.
