I think the outfit and the hat at the Civil Wedding looked good but the dress at St George's Chapel does not look very good,she would wear some thing more lighter.

I thought she was the worst dressed woman at the wedding. She looked tacky and a bit class-less It will be interesting to see what her wedding dress will look like.

So did I. SHe moved behind her son and than she went beside him to talk to him. I really don't think that camilla belongs where she is today and I bet teh Queen feels that way too. This was not supposed to happen, but thankfully the monarchy is changing so nothing like this will never happen again.

In 1662 the Prayer Book was re-written or modernised and the version of the General Confession used in the wedding service - along with many of the other prayers - e.g. the absolution come from that Prayer Book. It is my favourite. I really dislike the modern Prayer Books and simply can't say the words in the newer versions of the Lord's Prayer or Creed.
I think at the time of his first marriage, Charles said something about disliking the new version too; as far as I remember, it was updated into modern language in the 1970s sometime. His first wedding service didn't use the new language, and I see that the present one didn't either. When my husband and I got married we didn't have a choice; the modern version was the only one used in our parish church. I'm sure royalty is given choices, though!

Camilla dresses were nice.
The wed was ok but i think that maybe can would be more emotional.

Apart of the Royal Family of Granmd Britain, i didn´t saw other members of any Royal house. Who "royal" (apart of britain family) was there?

I was pleasantly surprised by what Camilla wore. I didnt occur to me that she'd change for the blessing. I loved the second dress. It was so elegant and regal. The sort of seafoam green colour and the gold thread embroidery were so lovely. It was mentioned on tv that they had to do a bit of research in the Victoria and Albert museum to figure out how to give it that special look, very subtle and almost irridescent. It reminded me of some of the elves' costumes in the Lord of the Rings movies (both in terms of the lean/elegant look and the colour and embroidery)

As for the blessing. With all the talk about atoning for their past sins, I had assumed that Charles and Camilla would ask for penitence as individuals. But they did it along with the entire congragation. Members of the Anglican clergy who were invited to comment on both CBC and CNN mentioned that asking for penitence is something Charles and Camilla would've done every week on sunday at church. They mentioned that this was an important part of Anglican church services. So its not like they went out of their way to apologize for their past behaviour. It was all very subtle.

Oh and I loved the music at the blessing. Very beautiful.
I switched back and forth between coverage on CBC, CNN and the French network TV5 which was the most thorough. But I didnt see any of the other European royals arriving. That was very odd because I was watching the guests arrive at least an hour before the ceremony started. I did see the middle eastern royals though.
It was eerie how many celebrity faces I recognized. Probably because I watch a lot of British mini-series.

I watched the wedding on BBC. Viscountess Linley was my favorite. Her headpiece looked gorgeous. Camilla's gown was beautiful as well. I must say it was the prettiest I have ever seen Camilla.

I noticed that as well. I also saw HMQEII bolt into her car faster than a cat on a hot tin roof.

Well she did have a show to watch on tv after the reception. I wonder how did she greet Diana after she and Charles got married.

LOL.. I thought I was the only one who noticed this matter. The Queen could not leave quick enough. And except fot the few royals at the wedding. I did not recognize anyone else in the crowd at the televised ceremony, etc.

Quite warmly in fact. She even cried during Charles and Andrews wedding, and after both of their weddings she waved the couple off. She did not bolt as she did in the case of Charles' second marriage. I found her behavior to be an obvious sign of her being uncomfortable in this situation. We must not forget that she lived through her uncle Edward's abdictation for wanting to marry an divorcee. It was not easily for her father, Albert, and her mother Elizabeth, to transition from virtual seconds to first place. Her son's second wedding must be an horrid reminder of the past and what brought her to the throne.
