Feels like just yesterday. Wonderful memory. Thank you for the beautiful post, Susan.

I found it interesting that the dress that Catherine wore had some elements that appear to be in common with those in the dress worn by The Queen, (then Princess Elizabeth), for her engagement photos. (Link below).

In the engagement interview, I notice that Prince William refers to Catherine as 'Kate', but he now refers to her as Catherine in public. I suspect that that's one of techniques he uses to separate their public life from their personal life, as well as respecting her given name in formal situations.

On their wedding anniversary, I'm going to settle down and watch the wedding video in full. On the day, we were experiencing aftershocks from our devastating February earthquake, and I was on edge, which made it difficult to fully enjoy the wedding.

I was driving home from work when I heard the engagement announcement on the radio and I had to pull over and stop the car as I was so excited! Doesn’t seem like 10 years ago. It’s lovely to see what a happy and successful partnership they are.

Lovely post. I didn't remember the necklace or earrings, so thanks for sharing. I guess I was too dazzled over the re-appearance of "the" ring! Has Kate ever worn that necklace again?

I don’t think so, Lynn, at least not that I recall. ?

I have the pleasure of making this my first comment on the famous Issa as I wasn’t here for the first post, I’m nothing but a latecomer and a novice, don't ya know. Shout-out to anyone who has made it all the way through, whether reading or commenting. Back then, I thought I was too grand a creature for fan pages as the ones I saw were pretty horrific. Took a while to tumble that this was the brainy site for all things Kate!! And that I was lucky enough to be allowed to take part.

I well remember the engagement announcement as I’d casually turned on the news only for these two to step out into that blaze of flashbulbs. I’m afraid I was never the biggest fan of this dress as I never got on well with wrap dresses myself, and had long ago decided they were impractical as they always seem to work loose. They have always had the look of a housecoat to me.

But of course, this colour was lovely on Kate, and matched her wonderful ring, and she has such a terrific figure she makes things look good almost regardless. This is the first I knew the pretty jewellery was Tiffany and the shoes were Episode. I like that the Episode platform is more discreet in black suede as I’m not fond of platform soles either, though I’m a sucker for an almond toe :))

Overjoyed to see we l have another WKW calendar, I was wondering what would happen with so many lockdown video engagements and not all of best quality for print purposes. To have a ten-year anniversary edition is a wizard idea, and I’m looking forward very much to seeing the one I have on order.

Oh ElizaMo, How wonderful that you have elevated all of us, when you call WKW the brainy site. We can now all collectively think of ourselves as the intelligent fans of Kate. Actually I've never thought of this as a fan site. We like Kate but most of us do not hesitate to say if we dislike an outfit. Susan researches the clothing and the events in such depth. She moderates the comments to weed out all the internet trolls and she works hard to keep all things civil. This is a community that admires Kate and respects each other. The fact that you think we are brainy is a bonus!
