The Daily Mail has their usual great pictures
I saw a posting about that earlier this morning and it's wonderful to see some of the hidden gems of the Windsors see the light of day finally. It really looked gorgeous on Sophie and suited her so well too.
Someone asked if there was silver embroidery due to the shimmer of it and...

All the answers can be found there.
Stephanie was just beyond stunning and gorgeous and just plain ROYAL!! That was the one word that constantly came to mind this morning. How regal it all was and she was the Crown Jewel of it all.
I need more sleep before I can talk more about it all, but gorgeous Bride and Groom, they looked so happy and you can't go wrong w/three kisses on the balcony either.
Congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses The Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg!! May they have a life full of joy and many blessings!!
Her gown has moved to my "All-Time Best" list.
A lifetime of happiness to the newlyweds!
Love the dress - so elegant, and the train!!
Also like that the bridesmaids are wearing slightly different dresses, but not big on the outfits for the children - too old fashioned and of another era (and not a good one). Guess I'll let it slide though
Overall I loved the dress but I did think that it looked heavy and maybe didn't move very well along the carpet. There were a few times when it looked like she really had to pull it along behind her.
My second quibble was how the kids were right in front of her/them when they were walking down the aisle.
I do wonder though, how much say did she have in the dress. How much was Stephanie and how much was Elie Saab.
The 30th Anniversary of The Princess Grace Awards were celebrated Monday night w/a Gala Awards Presentation attended by TSH Prince Albert and Princess Charlene.

Holy Crap Charlene!! She looks amazing and I can't remember the last time she really and truly looked like a Princess at an event like this other than the Rose Ball last year w/that incredible pink dress. Only thing that would have made this perfect is a Tiara, but still!!! Wow!!

That Aquamarine and Pearl Choker is amazing!!

It's in Danish, but the photos speak for themselves. Oh and I love the addition of a row of pearls to Mary's Wedding Tiara. It really helps out the look of it and gives it added "oomph" that's badly needed for it.

I wish them every happiness!
I remember the Press Secretary of the Swedish Royal Family saying when answering questions of why both Madeleine and Carl Phllip's significant others were invited and attending Estelle's Christening hinting that at least one Royal Engagement announcement would be coming w/in a year. She wasn't far off w/that, was she?
I am so happy for her!!! After what happened w/her last fiancé, Madeleine so deserved someone who truly respected her as well as loving her and from all reports, Chris does just that.
All the happiness in the World to them and can't wait for next year's Royal Wedding!!
