The late Prince Phillip was privileged enough to attend his grandchildren’s weddings. He wore a traditional Grenadier Guards Uniform for William and Kate’s big day. This matched the red uniform William, the groom, wore that day.
For Harry’s wedding, Prince Phillip left his uniform behind and wore a formal suit and added a blue tie. We are unsure if the uniform was replaced by the suit following Philip’s medical condition, preventing him from wearing the uncomfortable and awkward military uniform.
For both weddings, Princess Anne, daughter of the late Queen Elizabeth, wore the same color just in different shades. For William and Kate's wedding, she wore a shocking purple and green coat accompanied by a purple hat. Not sure what she was trying to say here.
For Meghan and Harry's big day, she wore a dark purple wrapped coat. This time she left the big hat at home and added a modest headpiece which seemed to work. She completed her intelligent look with a matching colored clutch.
Lady Kitty Spencer
In both weddings, it was impossible to ignore the absence of Lady Diana, William, and Harry's late mother. Lady Kitty Spencer, Diana's nice and the groom's cousin, represented the Spencer family. For William's wedding, she wore a tight-fitted beige dress and came with a matching clutch.
For Harry's wedding, she was dressed in a completely different character. She stuck to the squared-neck dress; however, it wasn't as tight as the one she wore for William's day. The blueish-greenish color flattered her, and the floral design cracked the conservative look. She looked beautiful.
The Guest List
There's nothing more frustrating than deciding who to invite for your big day and who, unfortunately, not. For Kate and William, this wasn't an issue. Everyone had to be there. From ambassadors to world leaders, prime ministers, and mega celebs, everyone was invited, not forgetting close friends and family.
For Meghan and Harry, things were different. They acknowledged that it was going to be an 'all or nothing deal. Their wedding was packed with Hollywood stars and a list of celebs, including Oprah, apparently a dear friend of Meghan.
The ceremony itself was very different at both weddings. Kate Middleton was marrying the future king of England, and this was, at least to the Brits, a very big deal. It was formal with no between-the-line jokes, and the speeches and songs were as tradition dictated.
At Meghan and Harry's ceremony, things were much loosened up. It included gospel singing, as Meghan insisted, the minister was an American from Chicago, and throughout the speeches, people were joking, giggling, and having a great time.
