Kate Wears Beulah for Alice St John Webster's Wedding

William, Kate and Pippa attended the wedding of school friend Alice St John Webster in Taunton, Somerset today. Alice was in the same years as Kate at Marlborough College and was given a prime seat at the royal wedding in the Statesmen's Aisle. She married her long- term partner Gerald Alvenel.

A huge thank you to Freyja McLennan who kindly shared photos via Twitter.

The wedding took place in St Mary's Church, Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, Somerset. The church dates from the 14th and 15th centuries and has been designated as a Grade 1 listed building. A beautiful church for an intimate ceremony.

Always the gentleman Prince William shielded Kate from the dismal weather by holding an umbrella over her.

Kate wore the printed silk chiffon Beulah Blossom Dress (With thanks to the wonderful Bella)  It is currently reduced from £490 to £415 and is described as

'With long billowing sleeves and knee length style, this dress is the perfect piece for any smart, summer occasion. The unique print and cut makes this dress original, flattering and feminine in a versatile way that can be worn from day to evening'.

Beulah

Interestingly the label was started by Prince William's former girlfriend Natasha Rufus Isaacs. This is the second time Kate has chosen a Beulah dress (She wore their Sarai dress for a gala fundraiser last October) so obviously there's no hard feelings :)

Kate wore her favourite LK Bennett Sledge shoes.

Kate recycled the Jane Corbett hat she wore to the Order of the Garter.



Kate appears to be carrying a white shawl and possibly her LK Bennett Natalie Clutch.

Pippa wore the Temperly Rana Shirt Dress (With many thanks to Shelby) The embroidered dress with 3/4 length sleeves was reduced from €475 to €285 but is now sold out.

    1. I don't undestand why people keep talking about who pays for Kate's clothes, she wore the same brands and had the same style in her single days, that means if she had to pay for it she could, then what's the big problem? Who pays if She doesn't work? Then I ask, is she alowed to have a regular job? No! So...people should stop minding about who pays for what she wears.

    2. Kate never wore high end designer clothes from mc queen or jenny peckham or Stella McCartney before her wedding. she was allowed to work before the wedding but she decided not to , remember queen asking Kate to get a job and the whole waity katie years/. she absolutely nothing her entire adult life other then waiting ,partying, shopping,vacationing ,she wasted her education and all the opportunities that was provided . she takes woman back 1 century and more where you are as good as well you marry . even her there is nothing to talk about her other then her clothes or make up or vacations or weight or hair . she is the most famous clotheshorse wag , it is really sad that people can't find a better woman to admire ,someone who actually achieved something on her own. before the wedding she never cared to do any charitable work , no amount of clothes will ever cover up her lack of work ethics and personality.

    3. The Prince of Wales pays for clothes for official engagements out of his private funds and there is no tax allowance for these, as they can be worn at private functions.

      The Prince of Wales issued his accounts this week and the officials commented that the Duchess was, "very good value".
      I believe most of us would agree with that assessment

    4. Chill out, it is only a comment on a dress, no need to get so so upset, what would you do if someone said something really serious.

  5. I like Pippa's outfit, but I'll have to wait decide on Kate's, looking forward to more updates! I was kind of disappointed not to see Kate & Wills at Wimbledon watching Andy Murray today, maybe they will another day tho!

  7. It is so nice to have unexpected pics of Kate. I really love Pippa's dress. It is gorgeous!!

  8. What a hideously ugly dress. It's almost exactly like that green grand-ma dress she wore to a polo match a few weeks ago. Pink with white? She has no clue.

    1. Hideously ugly describes the dress Pippa wore. Yuck! What is wrong with pink and white? Seems bright and cheery to me.

  9. I really like pippa's dress! it's gorgeous. But hat looks a bit disastrous with it!
    Kate also looks nice as always, but pic is a bit low quality to tell. Hope pictures surface!

  10. OH! I don't like Pippa's dress! Kate looks goegerous! But...Does Kate only has one shoes???

  11. These photos are an unexpected treat! Thank you. :) I think Kate's dress is very feminine and sweet. Not so sure about Pippa's though.

  12. Interestingly Kate wore the blouse version of Pippa's dress during the Calgary rodeo.

    Still awaiting proper photos, surprised to see no photo agency nor website has them yet. I wonder what the delay is.....

    1. Okay... Pippa's dress DOES have a western flair to it! (If it was white with navy detail I could see it at a rodeo.) Maybe it's not an ideal choice for a more formal look with a with a hat and clutch.

  13. Pippa's dress is beyond hideous!! I thought a clearer picture would make it look better, but alas, it just shows how ugly it really is!

  14. I liked Pippa's dress,,,but i guess she could've worn a different hat,,,Kate looked gorgeous,,pink and white are great colors :) I hope Kate recycles this dress on one of her international tours,,and the shoes,, she could've gone with a pretty pink color to add a dash of color and coordinate the outfit,,any idea on the earrings she wore???Thanks Charlotte! :)

  15. As someone self employed who wears ultra casual all the time, I really like both dresses! I could only dream of dressing so well. :-)

  16. As someone who is self employed and wears ultra casual all the time, I really like both dresses! Pippa seems not to have as super slender shape as Kate and is short -waisted, so some of these dresses, though beautiful, do not look as good on her.

  17. i love the duchess dress but i love it with clear picture pippa looks not good

  18. First, thank you for such a timely and professional blog. I do not usually comment, but as a former fashion consultant, I have to weigh in, what is Kate thinking??? the print is too large and looks as if belongs on a sofa in a vacation house. The entire outfit is poorly put together. The grey silk she wore to trooping of the color would have been perfect for this wedding. Also it looks as if she forgot hose, two pix of B & E over the weekend without make up and no hose and badly fitted dresses were ghastly. They looked so common and not appropriate. Certainly not deserving of a curtsey!!!

  21. I did not like the look worn by Kate for this marriage. By the way, I have not liked the last appearances of the couple William and Kate, they are always appearing a certain discouragement, discomfort. Kisses!

  24. So that's true...Kate has never looked as good as in her own events when she attends to her friends' weddings....This is very interesting, indeed. I can't see well the pictures but feel the hat and the dress simply didn't go well together...But I am just happy to see her photos.

    The beautiful Duchess always dresses "down" for friends weddings so the spot light is not taken from them. I have to take my hat off to her for doing this. The Duchess could wear whatever she wanted to so she would draw all the attention to her but she does not. So why do we cut the Duchess some slack and give her a high 5 for being respectful for the bride. Let's face it the media would sy back things about the Dcuhess if she did get all the attention at these weddings.

    @Ana Laura, can you explain your comment to me. Not sure what you are trying to say. The Duchess & her Prince look very happy together.

  26. What a gorgeous dress! A perfect match with the recycled Jane Corbett head piece! Thanks for sharing :)

  27. I like this dress and glad that she is wearing brighter colors. I am not a fan of the grays and cooler colors on her. Looks nice as always. Tough when you have to pick an outfit to please the entire world!

  28. @Pauline, I saw some other pictures of this marriage at the Daily Mail and tumblr too, and found them discouraged, but I have spoken in general appearances, the month of May until now. Kisses!

      Ana Laura- After I read your posts I went back 3 months and looked at alot of the pictures of the beautiful Duchess & her Prince and I myself did not see anything different in their appearance together. They had that look of love, laughing at each other and the Duchess always smiling at her Prince.
      There were some pictures where William did not look to happy but it was not with the Duchess. I think when William knows that the media is there taking their pictures, he does not look happy.
      Now this is just my opinion and maybe The pictures I looked at were from the Getty, Newscom, DailyMail, and on different facebook pages. But we are all have our own opinions and I respect yours.

  29. This time surprisingly I find pippa more elegant than kate. I love her outfit ,hat and hair.This time she really surpasses her sister without being in a "look at me"outfit.

  30. I like Pippa's dress. Her hair would be awesome if she would have it cut into a bob. She would look so much younger, if her hair was shorter.

  31. Hi Charlotte, don't know if you have seen my twitter post to you but Kate and William are at Wimbledon today :) it looks like she is wearing the cable knit McQueen sweater dress she wore for the Canada tour last year but I'm not 100% sure :p look forward to seeing some more pictures of them soon :)
