Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate


At 6pm Singapore time, my friends and I gathered to watch the 'live' telecast of the Royal Wedding from the Westminister Abbey. The royal wedding was totally amazing ..... and very beautiful. sigh


At the end of their wedding service at Westminster Abbey, Prince William and Kate travelled in the 1902 State Landau along the Processional Route to Buckingham Palace.

I was fascinated by the royal carriage and did a search.

The 1902 State Landau was specifically built for King Edward VII in 1902 and was intended to be used at his Coronation. It is the carriage in most general use at the Royal Mews and is usually used by The Queen to meet Foreign Heads of State when they arrive on State Visits to Britain. The Prince of Wales travelled to St Paul's Cathedral in the 1902 State Landau for his wedding in 1981, returning in it with The Princess of Wales after the service. The Duke and Duchess of York also used it for their return to Buckingham Palace at their wedding in 1986.


Kate's dress is very elegant, a classic that goes very well in the Westminster decor. I like the dress very much. Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen is the British designer who has created the Wedding Dress of the Century.

The Queen has given William three titles: Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. Catherine or Kate will become: Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus. (Thanks to Kloggers/Polly)

From all of our family in Singapore, we would like to wish the Royal couple Prince William and Princess Kate long life, happy marriage, and wealth of blessing.

  5. I too thought the dress was extrememly feminine and beautiful. It is lovely to see a dress with a waist so many in the last few years have had dropped waistlines. The Queen has given William three titles: Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. Catherine or Kate will become: Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus.
