I can't seem to help myself. I woke up this morning to a notification that the Royal Family had released the official wedding photos (for some reason it cracks me up that the British Monarchy has its own official photostream on Flickr).
I love the expressions on the kids' faces in this photo, they are all too cute! (Click to view larger image.)
I can't imagine having the freaking Throne Room in Buckingham Palace as the setting for a formal wedding group picture. The elegance of just this glimpse overwhelmes me! (Click to view larger image.)
I completely forgot to look for pictures of Kate's gown for the reception(s) after the wedding yesterday, so I simply had to rectify that error this morning.
Just as classy as her wedding dress. I love the fact that she went with the same designer, Sarah Burton, for both dresses. I don't know if that is the norm for royal weddings, but it provides a nice sense of continuity between the ceremony dress and the reception gown.
Sister Pippa looks every bit as classy, though I confess the neckline is a bit too low for me to be comfortable with it. *wink* I love the color, though, and the Grecian "feel" of the dress. Very elegant.
And last but certainly not least, I have got to tell you I loved Carole Middleton's evening dress. Absolutely gorgeous, so elegant and classy. It's easy to see where her daughters got their looks and poise. This may just be my favorite of the three.
