Royal Review of Kate’s Wedding Dress
Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, as she is now called really made a stunning bride today. She looked every bit the princess in her ivory and lace Alexander McQueen wedding gown. All I can write is “cheers!”
It has been 30 years since we saw Princess Diana walk, like a fairy princess, down the isle of Westminister Abbey. Kate Middleton followed in her shoes this morning on her wedding to Prince William. And in my opinion noone could be a more perfect replacement, if not an improvement, for the iconic philanthropic princess.
We are in an age of war and conflict and economic depression and we needed a fairytale – and got one! Do you agree with me?
