What better way to celebrate your first anniversary weekend than by attending a friend’s wedding…and that’s just what Will and Kate did on Saturday!
The newlyweds attended a small ceremony for longtime friend of Kate, Hannah Gillingham and her fiancee Robert Carter in Wingfield, Suffolk. Kate and Hannah attended Marlborough College together where they were close mates and members of various sports teams together. Fresh off of her couple of weeks of bad press, Pippa Middleton was also in attendance at the low-key nuptials.
While the gathering was a far-cry from the pomp and circumstance of the Duchess’ own wedding last year, the Daily Mail reports that Kate loved catching up with her old friends, some of whom she hadn’t seen for several years. Certain not to upstage the bride, Kate chose to reach into her closet again, recycling the blue lace Erdem dress she was seen wearing during her arrival on the tour of Canada last summer. She teamed the look with a navy and gold belt, matching fascinator, clutch and pumps.
Sources say that after the wedding, Will and Kate headed back to their home in Angelsey, Wales where they spent their anniversary at home. It has been reported that the Duchess planned a quiet romantic day for William, attempting to make fish en papillote – in parchment – to celebrate their first anniversary, which is traditionally symbolized by paper.
Hope the dinner turned out swimmingly, Kate! Congrats!
