Lady Amelia looks like she borrowed one of the late queen mothers dresses its hanging off her!
It is better than what she wore to her son’s wedding.
The lavender dress underneath that coat thing might be nice.

Lady Amelia’s dress is...interesting....

Lady Helen is wearing Amanda Wakeley. Is that Flora Ogilvy with Lady Amelia?
I think they all look bright and colourful, perfect for a spring wedding.

Lady Sarah Chatto and Lady Frederick Windsor are the best dressed but I've never seen so many badly dressed Windsors like this before.

I have to agree- I don't really like any of the choices so far.

(The Middletons look nice though; (although that headband Pippa is wearing really isn't to my taste).

Apart from the Queen, Lady Sarah Chatto, and Sophie Winkleman, I had issues with every other outfit on the women at this wedding.

I was expecting so much more from Marie Christine and I am severely disappointed that she gave us that purple monstrosity. Perhaps the dress underneath is lovely, but it's ruined by that horrendous coat.

Lady Sarah Chatto looked perfect in her signature ensemble.

Duchess of Gloucester's ensemble was spoilt by the headband.

That...headband? Turban? on the Duchess of Gloucester looked awful!

James Middleton's girlfriend Alizee looked very pretty; I was surprised to find her dress was from H&M and cost 49.99.

It's frankly hideous, which is a shame.

She generally looks very attractive but that is a horror, imo.

I love the Duchess of Gloucester but I do not like that thing on her head. The bride's mother doesn't look great. The color is lovely but everything seems too big for her. At least I think that is the problem.

I know I am in the minority here, but I absolutely love Lady Amelia’s dress, and lovely accessories, perfect for an early summer wedding.

Princess Michael has feathers, scarves and that weird jacket/coat made out of unfortunate fabric. There is just too much going on in her outfit.

The skirt of her dress is nice and is a beautiful color.

I agree about the DoG's sweatband hat--it is not her best look. No one should wear a hat in that style.

Duchess of Gloucester is repeating a ‘hat’ from 1984!

I noticed the Countess of Ulster today too with her husband. She was wearing a green dress and black hat but none of the pictures of her were very clear. The same with Princess Alexandra who was in blue.

You hold on to something long enough and it comes back in style.

As far as I’m concerned that was never in style and not any sort of hat.

Princess Michael looks as if she's picked up the bath mat from home to use as a cardigan because she forgot to bring one. Not a huge fan of her outfit but the colours are nice.
I quite like Lady Amelia's dress but I feel as if the designer wanted flowy, though has ended up more with baggy and loose-fitting instead.
This is also one of the rare occasions where the Duchess of Gloucester is one of the worser dressed for me - looks as if she's raided Princess Diana's ballgowns from the '80s!
