I do kind of understand why Kate and/or her designing team did not opt for a veil that extended past the train. The back of the gown with it's Edwardian style bustle was a masterpiece, in fact it was the best part of the dress imo.

A long veil might have taken away from the view of the back of the gown or even completely obscured the bustle unless Kate had done what Pippa did and worn a sheer long illusion veil.

Pippa's veil was gorgeous perfection and that with that type of veil Kate would have knocked her entire look out of the park...IF she had also done something different with her hair which I really hated.

My favorite veil/tiara combo in the British Royal Family was Princess Margaret's in 1960. Beautiful.

Indeed, the reason for the short veil was to show of the design of the train and all the delicate appliqué work. However, Sarah, Duchess of York wore just as delicate a veil which hid none of the beadwork or design or indeed bustle bow of the train of her gown.

I must admit that the short veil Princess Beatrix wore (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-JzGJ-nNcrI...6--Beatrix.jpg) to her wedding with Prince Clause worked well in this instance, as did the short veil Princess Mabel wore when she married Prince Friso (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-pDMpJGBhMY...ss--Front4.jpg) and the veil of Princess Margriet (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-KlNgGbFnSe...00/_Couple.jpg)

Thanks Jacknch, both of those veils are lovely especially Princess Beatrix's. I have honestly never paid much attention to Mabel's veil, so distracted as I have been by the Killer Bows.

I have to admit I always thought Sarah York's hair and veil an even bigger disappointment than Kate's. It was all so boring and mundane, especially considering how dreamy gorgeous her gown was.
