Princess Eugenie's wedding: The sartorial highs and lows. Plus Fergie's back, bitches!

Following on from the general royal style thread, which is fast filling up, here's one just to discuss today's outfits.

My predictions

I’m really hoping Fergie will look fabulous - teal or forest green look good on her.

After Kate's recent trip to the V&A, I’m hoping for something a bit more adventurous than a pale blue or yellow coat dress. Sophie in blue or pink Wickstead, Meghan in navy and/or boat-neck. She and Victoria Beckham may end up in similar outfits.

The Queen in fuchsia, neon green or yellow, Ladies Sarah and Helen in something elegant and understated, Karen Spencer in a dress that’s spectacular but so tight she can’t breathe.

And of course Princess Anne in a dress she's owned since 1986 that still fits her perfectly!

Hello smile

Long time lurker on the royal style thread, coming out of the shadows for today! Very excited to get the kids to school and then get comfy on the sofa for the morning.

I'm hoping for more that a coat dress from Kate too. If you can't reinvent yourself after having all your kids then when can you?

I'd love to see Meghan in something other than a dark colour too. She had some gorgeous outfits on Suits that looked amazing on her. I appreciate she was playing a character on there but she does suit some lighter colours too.

Aw I’m blooming working today. What time does it all kick off?

So glad the weather is crap it means I can stay in all day and watch it

Love not working Fridays

My heart is rooting for Fergie and the two York girls. I would love them to all have their beautiful swan moment and not be compared unfavourably to others

Yas! I am of course pretending to the world that I do not care but Royal Weddings are my weakness. Completely agree with Sherbert, these three perfectly normal looking women have been mocked for their looks all their lives and I want them to have a brilliant day.

Here! Looking forward to this very much. I am hoping the York women all look fabulous. Can't guess what the dress will be like at all though.

I don't expect anything unusual from either Kate or Meghan though as it's Eugenie's day and I don't think they'll do anything that would be deemed attention seeking. I notice Kate brought out her more daring outfit on a solo engagement.

Thanks for setting up the thread Queen. The ‘I’m back bitches’ comment made me laugh smile

The ITV channel I have is not showing it!!!! I’ve scoured the tv channels trying to find it but it isn’t on!

Where can I watch it????

SillySallySingsSongs Fri 12-Oct-18 08:55:34

Kate deliberetly won't wear anything different. She has said in the past she does it as to not detract from the bride with pieces on what she's wearing etc.

SillySallySingsSongs Fri 12-Oct-18 08:56:31

@Jackietheduck ITV are showing it but it's part of This Morning. Its being fronted by Eamon and Ruth.

QueenOfTheAndals Fri 12-Oct-18 08:57:12

@Jackietheduck It's being live streamed on the royal family's YouTube site so you will be able to watch it there.

I really, really hope the Yorks get it right, I really do. And I hope people go to watch the carriage ride. I think it's perhaps a little ambitious to have one but it would be pretty deflating for the bride and groom if the route were to be half empty.

I loved Kate's Erdem dress, but I anticipate another bloody coat dress for this - taking attention from the bride etc. I just hope Megan finds something that fits - she's beautiful with an amazing figure but so many of her dresses seem to be not quite the right size in photos.

Although I am absolutely too cool to care about this. Obvs. winkblush

Jackietheduck I am watching Lorraine itv1 and they are starting at 9:30 I think. This may help you www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/cle747q1395t/wedding-of-princess-eugenie-and-jack-brooksbank

Friday night entertainment in Oz! I'm sure they will all look amazing (but I truly hope Kate is not in a coat dress ..urgh ... and that Meghan's outfit actually fits her because ps the oversize thing does not look high fash it just looks ... bad).

Very ambitious and tbh the bit I dont agree with. With the weather as it is aswell I can see the crowds being sparse.

WipsGlitter Fri 12-Oct-18 09:07:03

Morning. As per the last thread I'm concerned about the brow tint but hopefully it will have faded a bit!

Spudlet Fri 12-Oct-18 09:07:17

With the weather as it is aswell I can see the crowds being sparse.

Me too. I do feel a bit sorry for them if that's the case, although it was always a risk - Eugenie has never had the same profile as Harry and so the interest would always be lower. And I don't agree with the cost of it, either.

But I like to think of people being happy on their wedding days!

princessbear80 Fri 12-Oct-18 09:09:34

So excited for this but I will have a house full of toddlers so will have to catch up later. Can’t wait to see Eugenie’s dress and all the other royals and celebs too.

ChicagoLil Fri 12-Oct-18 09:10:49

Morning!!! I am watching the guests arrive on Sky News. It's very windy and blowy and the hats are looking precarious. There are officials wearing red robes which are blowing up in the wind. Let's hope that York Tiara is being pinned in tightly as we type!

RainbowsArePretty Fri 12-Oct-18 09:15:15

Morning all, no work today, DC at nursery so I can watch uninterrupted! Very excited .

I think Kate & Meghan will both be nice but dull as they will both want the attention on the bride.

Apparently Eugenie's dress will show the scars on her back, wondering if it will be backless or partly see through?

QueenOfTheAndals Fri 12-Oct-18 09:20:18

It's a bit damp and breezy this morning but supposed to brighten up by midday so Eugenie may be in luck for her carriage ride!

QueenOfTheAndals Fri 12-Oct-18 09:22:32

Why is Jimmy Carr there? And who's that in the lilac Gumby jumpsuit?

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Fri 12-Oct-18 09:27:11

That would be nice wouldn't it?
Shall settle down soon with a brew to scrutinise the guests.

If it's true that there will be a reading of an extract from The Great Gatsby, I'm not sure that's the wisest move going.
