Here they are in no particular order:
The dress: Designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, the dress has deep routes in England’s design and material heritage. With hand-embroidery, a modest train and delicate arms the dress was both an homage to the past and a step forward in its clean lined modernity.
The Viewers: Two billion people around the world watched the couple wed. There were no successful protests and the crowds behaved.
And the Hats: So many hats… Standouts included Victoria Beckham’s, designed by Philip Treacy, and Charlene Wittstock’s. The Queen, for those of you who were betting at home, wore a yellow, almost top hat.
The Kiss: There were two from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Short yet, lovely. The family joined and the royal couple was treated to a fly-by featuring planes that fought in WWII.
The Ring: Made of Welsh gold. It had a little trouble going on, but once past the knuckle it was fine.
We wish the royal couple nothing but happiness. Congratulations.
