Best Actress



Fresh, modern and natural — three words that sum up our newest princess and which sum up the make-up look she chose for her wedding day.
It’s a brave move to decide to do your own bridal beauty, especially when there are two billion people scrutinising your every move. This was not the time for experimenting.
But she is very good at her own make-up, and it was revealed this week that she has been taking lessons from Arabella Preston, who specialises in bridal makeovers.

Doing your own bridal beauty when two billion people are watching is a brave move


The result? Yes, there was a touch more make-up than usual. Many wouldn’t have expected a heavy hand on such an important day. Kate, after all, is a sporty, outdoorsy girl who radiates health and happiness from within.

But she got the look she wanted — which is to say, one she felt confident and comfortable with and one which her Prince would love.

Best Supporting Actress


How Kate's foxy sister Pippa stole the show (leaving naughty Uncle Gary to languish in the shadows)


The day might have belonged to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but the supporting cast were almost as gripping, and none of them more so than the members of what is fast becoming Britain’s most famous and fascinating family.
Middleton-watchers were amply rewarded with a spectacle of nerves, tans, dignity, surprising outfits and *** appeal (yes, that refers to you, Miss Philippa Middleton!).
Indeed, you could even say that the Westminster Abbey Show felt just as much Bucklebury (the Berkshire village where the Middletons live) as it did Buckingham Palace — despite all the trumpeters and foreign dignitaries.
Scroll down for video







Stylish choice: Pippa Middleton's slinky white cowl-neck dress showed off her slender figure, while the cap sleeves kept it youthful. The back of the dress was studded with tiny silk-covered ****ons



Elegant: Pippa, pictured entering Westminster Abbey this morning with the bridesmaids and pageboys, echoed the bride's dress in a design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

For that we can thank the lively nature of that close-knit, party-loving Home Counties family.
Even the trees lining the Abbey aisle seemed to be a reminder of the oak-lined avenue that leads through Bucklebury to the Middleton manse. They served like lights on a runway to guide the Middletons to take-off as the family became linked for ever to the British monarchy.

WHO'S WHO: MEET THE BRIDESMAIDS AND PAGE BOYS


All the children have close ties to the Royal couple - especially William.
Lady Louise Windsor, seven, is the daughter of Edward and Sophie, the Count and Countess of Wes***, making her the Prince's cousin.
Eliza Lopes, three, is the child of the Duchess of Cornwall's daughter Laura and her husband Harry Lopes.
Grace van Cutsem, also three, is William's goddaughter - the daughter of his close friends Rose Astor and Hugh van Cutsem.
The fourth, and eldest of the girls is the Hon Margarita Armstrong-Jones, eight. Her parents are Viscount and Viscountess Linley. Her grandmother was Princess Margaret.

There were two pageboys: Tom Pettifer, eight, and William (Billy) Lowther-Pinkerton, ten.
Billy is the son of William's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.
Tom is the son of William's former nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke and her husband Charles Pettifer.


But the Middletons out in force, it has to be said, just make everything look like enormous fun.
For royalists, Disney fans, romantics and young girls, the bride who became a Princess before our very eyes and her smart groom were the only hero and heroine.
But right on their tail in terms of youth, glamour and audience excitement was the new Duchess’s fabulously foxy younger sister Philippa, otherwise known as Pippa.
Certainly, among many a red-blooded male, and on social networking site Twitter, Pippa was, plainly ‘It’.
Within minutes of her arrival, the younger Miss Middleton had nearly crashed the Twitter site as thousands of wedding watchers tweeted in enthusiastic praise of Her Royal Hotness.
The 27-year-old party planner was notably darker than her sister and looking all the more so because, very unusually for a bridesmaid, she was also wearing white.
‘She was mahogany in colour,’ said one guest, ‘but absolutely gorgeous. She looked amazing.’
Her slinky frock, like her sister’s, by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, was made of ‘heavy, ivory, satin crepe’ and sported the same embroidery and ****ons as her sister’s dress, but had youthful cupped sleeves, a surprisingly low cowl-neck — for an abbey — and a resulting suggestion of cleavage.
Many women would have been quite happy to wear Pippa’s dress themselves as a wedding dress. One wit remarked: ‘It would have looked particularly good for a beach ceremony for a wedding somewhere like Ibiza.’



Responsibility: Pippa walked down the aisle with the two youngest bridesmaids Grace van Cutsem (left) and Eliza Lopes (right), both three. They were followed by Margarita Armstrong-Jones, eight (middle left), Louise Windsor, seven, (middle right), Billy Lowther-Pinkerton, ten, (back left) and Tom Pettifer, eight (back right)




Bridal party: The maid-of-honour held the two youngest bridesmaids' hands as they entered the Abbey



Pippa wore her hair half-up and half-down, clipped with lily-of-the-valley flowers at the back, and she walked into the Abbey beaming, holding the hands of the two smallest bridesmaids, Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes (both aged three), having meticulously straightened her sister’s train.
Her parents had given her a pair of floral diamond earrings as a present, designed, like her sister’s, by Robinson Pelham (whose creative director Zoe Benyon was a wedding guest and who is married to the Middletons’ local MP Richard Benyon).

Pippa executed her duties (holding and passing the bouquet, smoothing the train, shepherding pages and bridesmaids up and down and making sure none of them got left behind) beautifully. But her efficiency wasn’t necessarily the focus.
Many women admired her dress, but an army of male fans were happily distracted by her shapely rear as the procession went up the aisle.
It certainly seemed that Prince Harry was smitten as he walked back down the aisle with her, sharing some piece of jolly mischief.
Though by the time they came out on to the Buckingham Palace balcony he had his grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh to compete with, as the duke indulged in a little light jokey flirting, discovering his sense of humour for the maid-of-honour’s benefit. (And why should the fact that he’s nearly 90 stop him sharing banter with such an adept bridesmaid?)

For many, it became irresistible to indulge in a little what-if speculation about the idea of Harry and Pippa enjoying themselves late into the night on the dance floor under the mirror balls in the Throne Room . . . Chelsy, if she is still interested, had better reveal her hand now.
The other Middleton sibling, brother James, the third acorn on the family crest (is he now sporting a brand new signet ring on his pinkie, emblazoned with it?) had an equally key role, being — unusually — the only lay speaker, and definitely the only one without a bushy grey beard.
The 23-year-old Cake Kit entrepreneur and wannabe Richard Branson also looked as if he’d had a close encounter with a Fake Bake spray gun (though rumours that a company had set up a booth for the family the night before in The Goring Hotel were quickly denied).

He arrived with his mother in a Jaguar and escorted her down the aisle. But his starring moment came when he read the lesson from Romans Chapter 12.

Doting sister: Pippa carries Kate's train as she enters Westminster Abbey with her father, Michael Middleton


Moment in the spotlight: Pippa then proudly carried her newly-married sister's train out of the Abbey after the wedding, before helping her into a waiting horse-drawn carriage

Smartly and slightly flamboyantly dressed in tail coat, pale yellow waistcoat, blue shirt with white collar and a purple tie (with a tie pin sporting that ubiquitous oak motif), he didn’t smile much, but he did get all his words out without a single stumble and seemed to know it all off by heart.
If anything, the Middleton parents looked more nervous than their children. One-time flight dispatcher Michael Middleton (‘What a day for the Yorkshire son of an airline pilot!’ a BBC commentator helpfully announced) has never seemed like a man who relishes attention and looked less than relaxed about dispatching his elder daughter into the Windsor family.

But like any proud father handing over his daughter, he was a touching sight. He was seen reassuring Kate: ‘Are you ready? You look great.’

Caring: Pippa clearly relished her role as maid-of-honour, which involved escorting three of the youngsters - (left to right) Billy, Grace and Margarita - to Buckingham Palace as part of the wedding procession

How best man brother quipped his way through the wedding... but not everyone was amused (we're talking about you, sister Pippa)

  • Your definitive account of a day of utter joy when the waiting finally stopped for Katie
  • 'We are so lucky to have her': Prince Charles's moving speech to the daughter he never had
The 26-year-old quipped that his grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh was dwarfed by Kate Middleton, who stood tall in three-inch heels alongside her prince. His stunning second sister-in-law Pippa, 27, did not appear amused – but she will need to get used to Harry’s humour. And at least she seemed happier talking to the Duke of Edinburgh, 89, who is renowned for his charm with beautiful women.





The Royal joker: Harry quips his way through wedding... but not everyone is amused


He is infamous for his bad jokes – and even on the Buckingham Palace balcony Prince Harry struck again.

SSSHH...! The sound of London celebrating the Royal Wedding gets a bit too much for one bridesmaid



Being invited to the wedding of the decade would make most people beside themselves with excitement, but for the youngsters chosen to accompany Kate Middleton down the aisle it was a dream come true.

As the world watched, the six children who made up the bride's troupe of bridesmaids and pageboys were the epitome of good behaviour and composure - for the most part at least.
The noise of millions clapping and cheering outside Buckingham Palace got too much for the new Duke of Cambridge's three-year-old goddaughter Grace Van Cutsem who covered her ears to escape the racket when she joined the happy couple on the balcony.

Pipe down: Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, but it's all too much for bridemaid Grace van Cutsem, left, who has to cover her ears from all the cheering
Ssshhh: Bridesmaid Grace van Cutsem covers her ears during the fly past watched by millions

And her displeasure at the noise was all too apparent from the look on her face. Even as Kate bent down to comfort her as the flypast approached, she repeated the gesture.
However, during the service all assumed the look of solemnity befitting the event and appeared to be concentrating hard on their jobs.

While none of them flinched at the attention, three-year-old Eliza Lopes, the Duchess of Cornwall's granddaughter, clutched her floral head-dress constantly, apparently concerned it might slip off.
The others, William's seven-year-old cousin Lady Louise Windsor and his second cousin Margarita Armstrong-Jones, eight, Billy Lowther-Pinkerton, 10, the son of William's private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, and the prince's godson, Tom Pettifer, eight, also appeared stern as they played the role they had rehearsed only yesterday at Westminster Abbey.
Despite their young ages, all six children seemed to appreciate the importance of the ceremony, frowning seriously as they stopped behind the bride when she reached the altar.

Only once the ceremony was over and they were on their way out of the church did the infants appear to relax a little - realising, perhaps, that they had performed their duties with aplomb.
The elder children even allowed themselves to smile a little as they left the abbey - although Eliza still fiddled with her head-dress.

Not sure: Bridesmaid Eliza Lopes, the granddaughter of the Duchess of Cornwall, waves tentatively at the crowds

As the newlyweds climbed into their waiting carriage, Tom broke into a broad grin, gazing about in joyous wonder at the scene.
And when the happy couple entered Buckingham Palace with the children behind them, the little boy, still smiling, could hardly take his eyes off them.
Only once they took to the balcony of the palace, where Prince William kissed his bride, did one or two of the infants become overwhelmed.
For the most part though they won the hearts of the adoring public as they waved and smiled.

Speaking near the abbey, April Brown, 45, from Chievely in Berkshire, said: 'They all looked so cute. I noticed that with one of the tiny bridesmaids, her mum brought her forward to join the procession.'
Lesley Hill, 44, from St Helen's, said: 'I thought the page boys and flower girls were very cute and their outfits were beautiful.

In we go: Pippa Middleton guides the bridesmaids into Westminster Abbey - but Eliza's hair piece is still not right


The children looked 'so beautiful', Doris Narty, 74, from Ghana, gushed. 'Their quality was superb. Everything was perfection.'
Indeed the bridesmaids' hand-made dresses were the stuff of every little girl's dreams.
Ivory with ballerina-length pleated skirts, puff sleeves and gold sashes tied in a bow, they were created by bespoke childrenswear designer Nicki Macfarlane, whose daughter Charlotte Macfarlane helped make them at their homes in Wiltshire and Kent.

The younger bridesmaids wore ivy and lily-of-the-valley hair wreaths, inspired by the head-dress worn by Kate's mother Carole Middleton at her wedding in 1981.



As a special memento, each of the four girls have had their name and the date of the wedding hand-embroidered on to the lining of their dresses.
Echoing Kate's dress, they were made using the same fabrics.
The full, box pleated skirt was used to add a sculptural quality, with the layering of ivory over white satin gazar adding depth of colour.
The dresses were hand-finished with delicate English Cluny lace, visible under the skirts, and four layers of net underskirt.
The puff sleeves and neckline were trimmed with the same English lace as the bride's underskirt, while the backs were finished with the same ****on detail.

The sashes were made of pale gold wild silk, tucked at the front and tied at the back in a sumptuous bow, St James's Palace said.
On their feet the girls wore classic Mary Jane style satin shoes with a Swarovski crystal buckle, made by Devon-based Rainbow Club.
The bridesmaids' bouquets by Shane Connolly used flowers from the bride's bouquet, including lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth.

Their waist-length capes, also by Nicki Macfarlane, were made from ivory Yorkshire wool, edged in fine English lace and tied at the front in the same satin gazar as the dresses.
Mrs Macfarlane professed herself 'thrilled and honoured' at being asked to design the dresses.
'I couldn't be more proud to have been part of this wonderful day,' she said.
The page boys were dressed in the Regency-style red tunic of a Foot Guards officer.
The look, which dates from the 1820s, draws its insignia from the Irish Guards.
