UPDATE MONDAY, MAY 21: After looking at the official wedding photos released today it is clear Kate was in a new Alexander McQueen garment. I am doing a new post and will come back and add a link to the new post. Here is a link to the updated post.
Kate was in an old favorite for today’s wedding in Windsor.
It looked like a glorious day, filled with sunshine but not too hot.
There was a substantial number of royal family members to see Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. Below you see Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex and Lady Louise. Sophie wore an ensemble by Suzannah with a Jane Taylor hat.
Princess Anne and husband Sir Tim Laurence.
Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall, with husband Mike. The couple is expecting their second child this summer.
Below, Princess Eugenie wearing a Gainsbourg dress, Fiona Graham hat and Valentino heels; Prince Andrew in the center; on the right, Princess Beatrice in a Roksanda hand-dyed silk organza dress, accessorized with a Stephen Jones hat and Gianvito Rossi heels.
Of course, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended with George and Charlotte, both of whom were attendants in the service.
Kate’s mother, father and brother James were also at the wedding. Pippa Middleton Matthews and husband James Matthews were also in attendance.
There was no shortage of celebrities. Below, Amal and George Clooney chatting with Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian.
Entertainers James Blunt and Elton John.
Harry and William arrived around 11:40 AM.
The Queen was the last royal to arrive. She wore a lime green ensemble by Stuart Parvin with a hat by Angela Kelly. On her lapel you see the Richmond Diamond Brooch with pearl drop. Below, you see her seated inside the Chapel with Prince Philip and Prince Edward.
Prince William leans across Camilla to speak with Kate.
Meghan and her mother, Doria Ragland, drove from their hotel to Windsor Castle. At that point Ms. Ragland went on to the Chapel alone while two of the page boys, Brian and John Mulroney, joined Meghan in her vehicle.
Kate helped corral the other two page boys and some of the bridesmaids.
When they arrived at the chapel they were shepherded inside.
It looked like Nanny Maria Borrallo may have helped out one of the bridesmaids.
The Mulroney boys were on standby to help with the train.

You can see the 16-foot train required special handling.
Meghan walked about half of the aisle by herself and then met Prince Charles who proceeded the rest of the way with her.
The service lasted about 45 minutes.
The Duchess of Cornwall and Kate.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After the service it was time for a carriage ride.
A wave from family and friends.

UPDATE After looking at the official wedding photos it is clear Kate was in a new Alexander McQueen garment. I am doing a new post and will come back and add a link to the new post. Here is a link to the updated post.
It looks like the Duchess brought back the Alexander McQueen first seen at Charlotte’s christening in July 2015. If it *is* the same outfit, this would be the fourth time it has been worn: initially at Charlotte’s 2015 christening; at Trooping the Colour in June 2016; again last July for Passchendaele centenary events in Belgium; and today’s wedding.
The news release indicated the Duchess would be wearing “…a primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat by Alexander McQueen.” The shade or color of Kate’s garment looked different in different lighting today, but it doesn’t strike me as a primrose yellow.
Kate’s hat is by Philip Treacy. When first seeing the piece some thought it was
the potato chip hat the ‘Launceston’ style by Gina Foster Millinery worn to the Zara Phillips/Mike Tindall wedding. A closer look shows this is not the case.
There was a suggestion via Twitter that the style on the left is most like Kate’s hat.
Kate’s shoes are by Jimmy Choo; they look like the brand’s Romy style in nude patent. The shoe features a point toe and 4″ heel; it is available at My Theresa ($675) and also at Saks. One not on the Saks shoes, they appear to have a bit of a metallic sheen that Kate’s pair doesn’t have. It was hard to tell online, but worth mentioning.
Kate’s earrings look like they are another Kiki McDonough style, probably the Lemon Quartz Drop Earrings ($
Kate also had on a new ring. I will look for info on it and update the post Sunday.
UPDATE: Kate’s ring appears to be a piece she has had since at least 2008. She is seen wearing it in January 2008 when out celebrating her birthday with sister Pippa Middleton in the photo on the far left and left; you see closeups of the ring as seen yesterday; on the far right, Kate looks like she is wearing the ring in July 2008 for the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman at The Queen’s Chapel, St. James’s Palace.
Multiple Tips of the Tiara today for always wonderful Charlotte of the HRH Duchess Kate blog, she pointed out the January 2008 information. Thanks also to Lorena for her comment on this post, she shared links to images of Kate wearing the ring at the Windsor/Gilman wedding!
We’ll leave you with this darling photo of Princess Charlotte.
