Will and Kate wasted no time in exchanging I’do’s, the official “I now pronounce you man and wife” was just 20 minutes after the official start of the ceremony. Very much like clockwork, the full roster of the royal family arrived and seated exactly on ssheduule, keeping no one waiting for the moment millions of people around of the world was waiting for, the revelation of Kate’s dress. Kept a tightly guarded state secret, not even the the name of the designer was known.
The dress is as you would expect all Kate. Conservative, yet romantic, the bodice of the gown was sculpted to fit with military precision over Kate’s spare figure. No frou frou, fluffery here, exactly as you expect from a Sun sign Capricorn. Yet the sleeves were all lace and the lace came and fitted over the main shell of the bodice, obviously a nod to her romantic Moon in Cancer.
Of course with the UK in as much financial difficulty as the United States, with essential services being cut from the public budget, there were complaints about the cost of this wedding. But it seems to me that Princess Catherine picked a dress that no one could kvetch about, beautiful, yet conservative, with a lack of pretense and ostentation.
The designer is Sarah Burton. Fashion commentators state that the style is not what Ms. Burton would normally design, displaying perhaps that Kate had a strong say in the style of the gown. This one would also expect with two personal planets in Aquarius, Mercury and Venus. Despite her new royal role, in personal matters she will always state her strong opinions.
