Elton John. Fascinators. Pippa’s bum. Just a few favorite memories from last year’s royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The world waited nearly thirty years for Diana’s first-born son to tie the knot, and now, a year later, our obsession with Will and Kate is as strong as ever.
The last 365 days have been a whirlwind of activity for the newlyweds. After their impromptu joyride outside of Buckingham Palace following their nuptials, we should have known that their first year of marriage would be anything but ordinary, from meeting President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, to Will and Kate’s much-anticipated royal tour of North America—including a star-studded night in Hollywood rubbing elbows with the likes of Tom Hanks and David Beckham.
We can’t talk about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first anniversary without talking about Kate’s trend-setting sense of style. Much like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, the Duchess set a new standard for royal fashion, from her breathtaking lace wedding gown (designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen), to an endless array of fascinators.
