Worst Dress Award

Oh dear: Princess Eugenie wore a blue Vivienne Westwood pouffy dress with a too-busy bodice ¿ Philip Treacy did the pointy hat ¿ while her sister Beatrice chose a nude Valentino couture coat that was spoiled by an outrageous Treacy hat. Both wore Jimmy Choo shoes and, for a change, attempted to hide their knees

Plunging: Earl Spencer's daughter Kitty reveals perhaps more than she bargained for as the overhead camera angle captures her cleavage in her daringly low-cut Victoria Beckham dress





Wrong choices: Autumn Kelly, the wife of Peter Phillips, was overwhelmed by her coatdress by Sassi Holford, made from what looked like upholstery fabric, and her over-fussy hat. Victoria Beckham in funereal black was a little too tanned and try-hard - her own-label dress, too high Louboutins and far too much make-up





Tara Palmer Tomkinson’s royal blue Deborah Milner dress (left) was flattering. But she must have hoped her Philip Treacy hat would obscure her nose. It didn’t. Miriam Clegg (right) shouted ‘Ole!’ in polka dots by Miguel Palacio, flowers in her hair and a Carmen Miranda head wrap. She was in High Street accessories — Zara and LK Bennett — so it seems that her husband is making cuts at home, too

Best William's ex- girlfriends

It could have been us! William's ex- girlfriends, who all came so close to being the princess bride themselves




As Jecca Craig, Arabella Musgrave, Rose Farquhar, Olivia Hunt and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe walked into Westminster Abbey this morning, one couldn't help wondering what they might have looked like walking down the aisle in a white gown. For as William's ex-girlfriends, it could so easily have been them.
Though it has been over eight years since any of the dated him, it appears that he has sustained a relationship with nearly all of them.
Of course many have long-term partners of their own now. Miss Craig, 28, who had a teenage fling with William, attended with her beau Captain Philip Kaye - a friend of the prince himself.

Miss Calthorpe, 30, who the Prince was said to be besotted by in 2004, is now dating actor and childhood friend Sam Hoare.

Miss Hunt, 28, who dated William at university before Kate, and his first girlfriend, Miss Farquhar, 26, who he dated for a short while after he left Eton, also attended, as did Davina Duckworth-Chad – once named as a potential bride for William, who was at the wedding with husband Tom Barber.
That didn't stop the ladies going all-out in the fashion stakes. Miss Calthorpe supported British design talent in boho-chic Matthew Williamson.




Still friends: Rupert Finch (left, with his wife, Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs) dated the bride at St Andrews. Gucci PR Arabella Musgrove (right) once dated the groom but is now with banking heir George Galliers-Pratt

Arabella Musgrave, 28, who does PR for Gucci and now dates banking heir George Galliers-Pratt, and her friend Olivia Hunt, were both faithful to the Italian fashion giant.
They certainly gave the Royals a run for their money, even though they too had made an exceptional effort with Princess Beatrice in Valentino Haute Couture, Lady Kitty Spencer in Victoria Beckham and Gabriella Windsor in Catherine Walker.

The presence of so many ex-partners demonstrates how solid William and his new bride's relationship must be. A less secure woman might be shaken by the presence of a former lover in the congregation.

BEST COOK

The eight-tiered Royal Wedding cake decorated with 900 symbolic sugar-paste flowers on Kate's request




They celebrated their love for each other today in a lavish Royal Wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey and this is the extraordinary cake that they enjoyed at the reception.

Prince William and his bride Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, cut the first slice of the magnificent eight-tiered wedding cake this afternoon as they celebrated their marriage with friends and family.

The confectionery masterpiece covered in cream and white icing and decorated with up to 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers was centre-stage at the Buckingham Palace reception held in the picture gallery.

The masterpiece: Fiona Cairns, stands next to the wedding cake that she and her team made for Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, in the Picture Gallery of Buckingham Palace




Hard work: The project has left cake-maker Fiona Cairns exhausted but elated after working for five weeks on the project

The project has left cake-maker Fiona Cairns exhausted but elated after working for five weeks on it which has tested her s****s and those of her team to the limit.

The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are fans of her fruit cakes, while Paul McCartney orders one for Christmas every year, and she has also baked creations for bands Pink Floyd and Simply Red in the past.

Ms Cairns, 56, whose confections are sold in Harrods, Selfridges and Waitrose, was contacted by St James's Palace in February and asked if she would make William and Kate's wedding cake.

Speaking at Buckingham Palace after she had put the final touches to the cake, she said: ‘The picture gallery has high ceilings and is an imposing room so I wanted the cake to have presence but not to be imposing and I think it worked.

‘Catherine did not want it to be seven feet tall, she didn't want it to be towering and thin, and I think we succeeded.

Finishing touches: Staff perfect the special cake, that was covered in cream and white icing and decorated with up to 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers






Fruity! The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are fans of the baker's fruit cakes, while Paul McCartney orders one for Christmas every year


Flowers featured on the cake

Rose (white) - national symbol of England
Daffodil - national symbol of Wales, new beginnings
Shamrock - national symbol of Ireland
Thistle - national symbol of Scotland
Acorns, oak leaf - strength, endurance
Myrtle - love
Ivy - wedded love, marriage
Lily of the valley - sweetness, humility
Rose (bridal) - happiness, love
Sweet William - grant me one smile
Honeysuckle - the bond of love
Apple blossom - preference, good fortune
White heather - protection, wishes will come true
Jasmine (white) - amiability
Daisy - innocence, beauty, simplicity
Orange blossom - marriage, eternal love, fruitfulness
Lavender - ardent attachment, devotion, success, and luck.


‘We reflected some of the architectural details in the room so the garlands on the walls were reproduced loosely on the fourth tier - we've used roses, acorns, ivy leaves, apple blossom and bridal rose.’

The bride wanted elements from the Joseph Lambeth technique of cake decoration, where intricate piping is used to make three dimensional scroll work, leaves, flowers and other adornments.

Kate also gave Ms Cairns detailed instructions for her to include 17 different blooms and foliage for their meaning or symbolism - known as the ‘language of flowers’.

Ms Cairns, who lives in Leicestershire where her factory is based, started her business from her kitchen table and now employs more than 50 people.

She said: ‘I could not believe I finished it in time but we were all really pleased with it. I worked at the palace for two days before the wedding, setting it up with my team.

‘The hardest part was transporting the cakes from Leicestershire to the palace - we were worried they would get damaged - then we had to assemble them.

‘It was tough work but I really enjoyed it. It's been an extraordinary commission.’

Along the cake's base ran ivy leaves, symbolising marriage, and the bottom three tiers were decorated with piped lace work and daisies, meaning innocence, sweet William - grant me one smile - and lavender.

Best Whoops Award

Whoops! David Beckham in last-minute OBE switch to avoid embarrassing own goal at the Royal Wedding




He rarely puts a step wrong in the style stakes.
But despite looking groomed to perfection and dapper in his Ralph Lauren morning suit, David Beckham had a very small slip-up today at the Royal Wedding.
The footballer arrived at Westminster Abbey this morning proudly wearing his OBE medal displayed - but unfortunately, David wore it on his right lapel.






Switcheroo: David Beckham arrived at the wedding with his OBE medal on the right side of his suit lapel, but later changed it to the left

Very few would have even noticed, but those in the know were quick to comment on the 35-year-old's misstep.

  • Nose doubt, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson looks brilliant in blue at the Royal wedding

Traditionally, the OBE medal is worn on the left side, and commentators during the coverage noted the faux pas during their telecasts.

Either he noticed others inside the Abbey wearing their own medals on the left, or someone had a quiet word to him - but before the ceremony had even begun, David had switched it over to the other side.


Much better sir: David is seen chatting to Beefeaters in the Abbey after making the swap

Despite this, the Beckhams were in high spirits and were spotted chatting animatedly to fellow guests Guy Ritchie and Sir Trevor Brooking.
David's spokesperson was quick to play down the small slip-up, but told Mail Online that the couple had a wonderful time at the wedding.

In a statement released afterwards, they said: 'Today's ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt. Catherine looked wonderfully elegant and we were honoured to be part of such a special, historical day for our country.

'We wish Catherine and William much love and happiness for the future.'


Proud: David looked excited as he arrived at Westminster Abbey with wife Victoria proudly wearing his OBE

David's wife Victoria's outfit was among the most eagerly-anticipated among style watchers, after the bride of course.
As Victoria's spokesperson confirmed to MailOnline, the pregnant fashion guru wore a stunning midnight blue boat neck tunic dress from her latest AW11 collection, which she unveiled at New York Fashion Week in February.

Victoria had her hair tied back in a long ponytail and accessorised the outfit with a Phillip Treacy hat and a pair of specially customised Christian Louboutin heels.

BEST Tense moment

The moment the world held its breath as William struggled to get the ring on Kate's finger




It was the moment two billion people held their breath.
As William put the ring on his bride's finger in Westminster Abbey, for just a second, it looked like it wouldn't fit.

But the prince managed to stay cool in a tight spot, no doubt helped by his time at Sandhurst, and struggled the simple gold band into place.

It was the only tense moment of a spectacular fairytale ceremony inside Westminster Abbey.

Struggle: William had to apply a considerable amount of pressure to get the ring into place. But he stayed cool and eventually got the simple band into place


Dazzling: Kate displays her wedding band and sapphire engagement ring

The future king and his bride, who will now one day be queen, pledged their love for one another in the ancient surroundings, watched by two billion across the globe.
The Rolls-Royce carrying the bride arrived Westminster Abbey at 11am as the church bells rang out.
When her father took her left hand they began their procession along the red carpet that started outside the ancient building and led inside, with her sister Pippa carrying her train.
