Prince Harry leaves new mum Meghan at home with baby Archie to join The Queen, Philip and Pippa for third royal wedding in a year as Her Majesty's cousin Lady Gabriella Windsor marries in Windsor

    Lady Amelia Windsor’s pink dress is hideous. I’m glad to see Her Majesty and Prince Philip looking well.

    We loved digging, too. My sisters and I used build little towns, do town planning with our matchbox cars in the dirt... for hours on end.

    Mud pies in the old cow barn... but we used to hang out with the neighbor’s cows...

    And we made fancy felt clothes for our troll dolls.

    Back then it was called farm life!

    My mom was adverse to Barbie as were many 50’s moms. The focus was much more on nature, identifying plants and insects, bike riding, caring for our pets, cats, dogs, and a beloved guinne pig, playing with neighborhood kids, creating plays, dance to Motown, play cards, and read, things like that. And no coloring books. We made our own pictures...

    We moved to a wonderful town for middle and high school years. It was then I fell in love with English church music... we all sang in the choirs. It was a great community.

    One difference I think is we had hardly any television for kids... so, no onslaught of marketing.

    I still have a few of my toys from childhood... brings back good memories.

    Everyone looks so happy at the Wedding. So much to celebrate lately. As it should be.

    Queen Elizabeth looks so tiny next to Harry!

    The sleeves on Lady Amelia & Pippa's dresses are so unusual looking. I didn't care for Amelias dress at all until I zoomed in & saw the neckline, covered buttons & daisy print. It began to grow on me.

    I like the color Fergie chose for her dress.

    Beatrice's dress was not very spring wedding-ly looking. Liked her hat, tho. Lightened her up a smidge.

    <respectfully snipped>

    Those white and yellow "flowers" - or whatever the pattern is - look like sliced hard-boiled eggs o_O

    I think Beatrice looks great but I agree it is not very cheerful for a spring wedding. It is a big improvement over the horrific outfits we have seen over the years.

    Yes the dress should be burned never to be seen again.

    I think Beatrice and Sarah should have swapped colours. Sarah really suits bolder colours like greens and blues. No sign of Eugenie?

    No William (he was at the FA Cup Final - leaving men everywhere wondering how the hell he managed to get away with that!) but no Kate either even though the rest of the Middletons attended. And where are Charles & Camilla?

    Liked the look of James Middletons girlfriends dress - 50 quid from H&M!! (sold out)

    Not keen on Lady Amelia's pink dress - style or print. Looks like a pre-schooler chose it and a teenager made it in home economics.

    Noticed the Queens sweet little handshake with the Rev. Her Maj looks fabulous for a lady her age!

    Absolutely LOVE bride Gabriella's dress, lace isn't usually my thing but the neckline is gorgeous. Also loving the tiara, think the "fringe" style is my favourite.

    James Middletons’s girlfriend’s dress wins the day. Imo. And I love the hat, too.

    :) Did someone mention TIARAS ?
    The Kent Fringe Tiara
    As worn by Princess Michael of Kent on her wedding day
    [​IMG]
    And also by her mother Princess Marina of Greece
    [​IMG]

    I agree @CoverMeCagney I'm particularly fond of the 'Fringe' Tiaras [​IMG]

    "Many Canadians may have the idea that Victoria Day is an internationally observed event that connects us — however quaintly and tenuously — with other remnants of the old British Empire as we collectively celebrate our colonial heritage by pulling up lawn chairs and raising a glass or a beer bottle to the tubby little Empress of Canada, India, Australia, Britain and points between."
