The official wedding portraits have been released and me thinks they look quite good! While still formal, I think they managed to stay away from the stuffy awkwardness that seems to fill posed potrait shots. And I have to say, the dress photographs beautifully. Part of me was a bit sad that I think people will forever compare her look to Grace Kelly, but the other part thinks the now Duchess made a fantastic call on the dress and it’s one tha will definitely age well in its posterity.
As for the ceremony, for me it was filled with small annoyances (Did Harry forget to comb his hair? Why is William slouching? What happened to the royal upholster – didn’t he notice that the maroon of the ceremony chair clashes with the electric red of Wills’ jacket? And where was the rest of the fly-over squadron – I’ve been to air shows in Fargo, ND where the Happy Hooligans put on more of a show than tha B-52 bomber and twin props that they rolled out for the salute) But I suspect that these are small things noticed only by yours truly. In the big picture, it was beautiful, and Kate looked beautiful, and here’s to hoping that they all get their fairy tale endings…after all, the world is watching.
And that brings the TRW to a close…the only item left to discuss is Harry and Pippa. Did they…or didn’t they?
