Kate Middleton: We’ve all seen the 18 carat sapphire that had previously belonged to Prince William’s mother, Diana.

    What sort of bra was Kate wearing? it-spoilt the wedding dress.
    both Kate and her Mum are very stylish dressers.
    Have to say though Princess Mary of Denmark is my choice-beautiful dress-showing lovely shoulders, with her hair up-and a stunningly beautiful woman in a class all on her own.

      Kate had protocal when choosing a wedding dress. She had to cover her shoulder and have sleeves and their was portocal on the cleavage/V neck design.

    I didn’t even notice her bra. You’d think the designer would’ve consulted with her on it…

    I like Grace Kelly because she’s a classic beauty but there isn’t anything wrong with Kate! I’m happy for her and I don’t even know her.
