Ahhhhh! Good gracious what is this monstrosity? My eyes can't unsee, looks like Diana's dress but less skirt.

BTW slightly OT, but I think Princess Diana has to have been the most nervous royal bride ever. She almost looks as if she's hyperventilating. I mean she's smiling and looks radiant, but her chest is heaving. Compare that to, for example, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, who looks so thrilled she could cartwheel down the aisle. (Which I understand given the original opposition to her being allowed to marry her personal trainer, even though Prince Daniel has proved to be a good choice in the end).
and clearly the Prince of Wales was NOT a good choice for Diana Spencer; apparently they both knew this as they entered the church Imagine if they had both spoken up at the "if anyone has just cause to deny this union" part of the service

I have added Meghan Duchess of Sussex to my list on on the strength of that amazing bridal veil mostly. I just don't know what order she comes in the Top Ten.

For now the Top Three remain.

1)Grace of Monaco
2)Maxima of the Netherlands and Stephanie de Lannoy, HGD of Luxembourg(tied for #2)
2)Charlene of Monaco

It was indeed, and for me she is still the best royal bride - when you see her, you see a bride. Or at least how I envision one. But today she has to share her no. 1 spot with Princess Eugenie. They are my top.
