Zara Phillips wed her love, Mike Tindall, in a private ceremony in Edinburgh, Scotland. What did Kate Middleton wear to the wedding?
Edinburgh, Scotland, played host to the royal wedding part deux between Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Zara Phillips, and her rugby-playing fiance, Mike Tindall. The royal wedding — held at Canongate Kirk on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile — attracted Phillips’ famous family, including the Queen, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles.
The shy Phillips wore an ivory silk gown made by British designer Stewart Parvin. She added a huge white flower bouquet to her outfit, along with a gorgeous tiara. The tiara was a nice touch, especially since Phillips has no official royal title. Princess Beatrice rocked a huge hat, though the title for “craziest royal wedding hat” for this wedding goes to Parker-Bowles for her birds nest hat (seriously, what is that thing?)
Middleton wore a huge hat too — and an embroidered, champagne-colored coat she first wore in 2006 to the wedding of Laura Parker Bowles’ and Harry Lopes. Gotta love a royal who knows how to save a few bucks!
The wedding followed a lavish pre-wedding party aboard a yacht on Friday night that attracted family and friends, including Wills and Kate. Middleton also recycled for that party, wearing a green Diane Von Furstenberg dress she wore while in Los Angeles in June.
The private wedding attracted hundreds of well-wishers along the route near Canongate Kirk — some even traveled from Canada to be there for the big day. Afterward, guests traveled to Queen Elizabeth’s official Scotland palace, Holyrood House.
Congratulations to the new royal couple!
