The Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland!!

Friday, July 29, 2011

The Earl and Countess of Strathearn--more usually known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge--attended Zara and Mike's pre-wedding cocktail party aboard the The Royal Yacht Britannia this evening.  As you probably remember, the morning of the wedding, William was vested with the titles Duke of Cambridge, an English title; Earl of Strathearn, a Scottish title; and Baron Carrickfergus, the Irish title.  Kate, of course, took the female titles several hours later when they were married.  This of course means, they need to get back to Ireland as a married couple so we can dust off that other title!

Kate pulled a repeat, as expected, and wore the green DVF dress she wore in LA.  I know this one debuted to mixed reviews, but I certainly loved it from the front.  Something about the back isn't to my taste, but I know that a lot of you think that is what makes the dress, nevertheless... Most importantly, she is repeating and not drawing undue attention upon herself at Zara's party.

Zara is wearing what appear to be the oh so famous Kate shoes from LK Bennett.  Even if they are just a good look alike, the look is quite the keeper for summer.  These look fabulous on Zara.

There has been some chatter that this is no royal wedding, since Zara is in act a commoner.  When Princess Anne married Mark Phillips, he was offered a title, but refused.  Since he holds no title, his children take no title.  Nevertheless, Zara is arguably one of the Queen's favorite grandchildren, and the wedding seems to highlight the best of the royal and common life.  

So cute!

Tomorrow is the wedding itself!  Watch for photos!

  1. I'd definitely rather be in Zara's position, royally speaking. She's got the royal blood coursing through her veins (even if she doesn't have a title), great family connections/invitations without the hassle of tours, state dinners, ribbon cuttings and the like. She's got the best of both worlds.
