That’s very interesting. I hadn’t studied the details of the lace, but you’re probably right. They always work symbolic things into royal wedding dresses, jewels, and even family names.
The press will probably call her Princess Kate, except for the classiest networks (like the BBC) that will call her the Duchess of Cambridge. A lot of media sources are doing that now, but I think they’ll go back to Kate soon because casual readers might not know the new title. Now everyone’s so caught up in the wedding they’ll easily remember and the new title is a story in itself.
I’m amazed with how well the wedding went off. It was very dignified but made them seem very human. I don’t think they’ve ever done a wedding quite as powerful as this one. For Will and Kate is was just about them and their love, but I’m sure some of the men in gray suits are patting themselves on the back.
