The pageboy outfits are miniatures of Prince Harry and Prince William uniform

They're still too black for me. Looks too sad.

The ladies colors are then accented by the bouquets' colors of green (Queen and Doria) and white (light pastels of Camilla and Catherine).
Kate's light yellow outfit is harmonious with the green but Camilla's pink is too stand out.

I hope for some color too but I guess they can't modify too much as it is based on actual military uniform?

Camilla just missed it.
All shades of Green have a complimentary relationship with all shades of red [and Palest Pink is one of them]

Not in this case...you have a green and gold room...and everyone in white/cream/pale green...then Camilla in pink. If it was a blush it would work. It's too pink and different from everyone else's.

Basically, to me, what mattered is that the two most important women at the wedding were color coordinated. Doria and The Queen (in lieu of Harry's mother being deceased). I noticed it right away at the ceremony. HM added a touch of regal purple flowers to her hat though.

I actually liked the page boys outfits. Now, George has a uniform to wear just like his Daddy's and I bet his mother didn't have to fuss overly much to get George dressed up in it. I hope Kate took a private picture of Daddy and son in uniforms standing side by side. That would be a keeper for sure.

Maybe it was meant as an accent to the red bits in the room, the only other color present, aside from the blue, that stands alone. Perhaps lighter shade of the Queen's dark purple hat plumes would have tied her together with the rest.

Forgot to comment on the best part of the photo--they all seem so joyful.

Nitpicking much ? I mean the carpet is red, the walls have an almost pinkish tone and Camilla 's pale pink outfit looks almost white.
All is well balanced, colourful and lively.

I believe no one would disagree that.

I believe it's pretty traditional for pageboys in the UK to be dressed in either military-eque outfits or old fashioned outfits. With the royal men who've married in uniform (Charles, Andrew, William, and now Harry) the pageboy outfit have all been clearly inspired by the uniform that they wore. With Harry's pageboys it's kind of hard to give them colour when his own uniform was lacking in colour.

The Sussex official Wedding Photos are the most beautiful and romantic Royal wedding pictures I have ever seen. No exceptions.

The one of Harry and Meghan seated on the steps of Frogmore House is just everything.

Great work, Count Lubomirska!

Just pointing out that for me this throws the balance of the photo off. I already said this....and her outfit is pink...doesn't even look close to white.

I'm kind of with you here. I liked Camilla's outfit in general, but it does stand out in a not great way in the family photo - had the dress been a bit paler it would have been better for this photo.

Trifling thing, but he's a Prince, and the masculine version of his name is Lubomirski, [his Princess is/will be Lubomirska]

Actually, my first thought, when I saw the colours of Her Majesty's outfit -and given that Meghan is an acknowledged feminist- was that it was a nod to the Suffragette movement.

What gorgeous pictures. I love how close to Meghan both Harry and Doria are.

The children look so lovely and lively. It looks like they had fun.

The black and white one is really romantic, the setting.

Meghan and Harry both look extremely happy, beaming.
