Kate Middleton has some big shoes to fill. Prince William's mother, Princess Diana, was a true fashionista. the princess walked down the aisle to "I Was Glad" by Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, who composed it for the coronation of Prince William's great-great-great grandfather Edward VII in 1902.
Prince William holds an honorary rank of Colonel of the Irish Guards, and he opted to wear an Irish Guard's officer uniform instead of his Royal Air Force uniform. he also wore his Garter sash and star, Royal Air Force "wings," and Golden Jubilee medal.
the halo-style tiara that Kate wore was Cartier creation belonging to the Queen. King George bought it for the Queen Mother in 1936; the Queen Mother gave it to the Queen on her 18th birthday.
the bride's earrings were designed by Robinson Pelham, according to the official royal wedding website. they are diamond-set stylized oak leaves that frame a dangling diamond-set drop and pave-set diamond acorn. the earrings, which are a wedding gift to Kate from her parents, were made to match the tiara lent to her by the Queen, and were inspired by the Middleton family's new coat of arms.the blushing bride Kate Middleton stunned in an Alexander McQueen gown, while Prince William looked dapper and utterly swoon-worthy in uniform. the balcony kiss xoxoxo
