These lovely royals who have served for so long, were NOT well served by photos today, but we did snag a few. We at least get a peek at the Duchess of Gloucester’s necklace, which I kept glimpsing throughout the ceremony. I thought everyone looked good, and pretty vigorous considering the rigor of the last few hours.
It was sweet of the Gloucesters to share a ride with Tim Laurence, right?
Words cannot express my happiness that Lady Sarah Chatto chose to leave the cardigan at home for this historic event! Doesn’t she look lovely? We don’t have an ID on her dress, but everyone will recognize Princess Margaret’s pearl earrings.
Her handsome son and husband were also there! We know how close Sarah and Charles are so this is no surprise.
We know that the Abbey seating situation was tight, and that was driven home by the fact that some of the extended royal family left their spouses at home. Lord Frederick Windsor escorted his sister, Lady Gabriella Kingston. She appeared in a Catherine Walker Britta coat, accessorized with a diamond shamrock brooch.
I had to search pretty hard to find Prince and Princess Michael, but once I did it was obvious ROYALTY WAS IN THE HOUSE!
It’s lovely to see Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones, although I have to say her choice of dress is leaving us speechless. Good color though, and you have to admit she is a beautiful woman, a mix of her mother and paternal grandmother. She’s come a long way from her bridesmaid days at the Cambridge wedding.
Late addition! I’ve been looking for Lady Helen and finally found something. I love her ensemble, but I almost always like what she wears. I think, although I am not sure, that she was one of the royals who attended without partners, and definitely without her children, due to limitations on space. I think I would have noticed Tim Taylor if he was there.
Rose Gilman, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, borrowed her mother’s clips to decorate the neckline of her dress.
Let us know what you think of these looks!
