The Journey: HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

The day is here and Catherine Middleton is now the Duchess of Cambridge. Read about all the insider details revealed today as Kate and William said “I DO”!

THE DRESS- Kate took a page out of Grace Kelly’s book. She looked breathtaking in her wedding gown by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Her look was completed by stunning jewels and accessories fit for a princess. Sister Pippa and bridesmaids looked amazing too! Pippa was also wearing Alexander McQueen.

THE JEWELS- She adorned her long locks with a 1936 Cartier halo tiara lent to her by Queen Elizabeth. This was the Queen’s 18th birthday present. Her earrings where designed by Robinson Pelham and given to her by her parents Michael and Carole Middleton. The leaf design was taken from elements on her tiara.

THE MEN- Prince William and his brother Prince Harry bother were dressed in formal military attire. The 28-year-old prince choose to wear the uniform of Colonel of the Irish Guards with a Forage Cap.

MOMENTS- The new HRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had many touching moments together during the ceremony. They really displayed their true love for each other throughout all of the "Pomp and Circumstance". This also happened to be the song they made the four minute walk through the Abbey and made their debut to the public.

THE EXIT- Kate & William made their special exit on the same 109 year old State Landau carriage the Prince Charles & Princess Diana used in 1982.

SURPRISES- The happy new couple must have consulted with us because they surprised their guests on not one but two occasions. The much anticipated KISS turned into TWO while the crowd outside Buckingham Palace asked for more. Then as William & Kate exited the palace, William drove the happy couple in an Aston Martin decorated with balloons and streamers.

THE HATS- Let's just say I could have watched the hats all day! Some extreme and some demure, but it was definitely a requirement to bring out your most interesting design in the hat department.

Check out for the fashion and the touching moments we all love about weddings!!!
