Sophie Wessex joined the Royal Family when she married Prince Edward at Windsor Castle in 1999. The couple had an informal, family ceremony for St. George’s Chapel and that reportedly meant following a more casual dress code than usual. However, there were a few royals who decided against Sophie’s choice.
However, there were a couple of Royal Family members who chose to stick to tradition.
Princess Anne opted for a mint green satin dress and a matching short jacket for the occasion.
Towards the back of her updo was a bright green feather accessory.
The Queen, on the other hand, wore a lilac dress which was embellished with a lace overcoat and a matching lilac shawl around her shoulders.
She paired it with a full-length veil made of sulk tulle and crystals which was held in place by a diamond tiara originally from the Queen’s private collection.
To complete the outfit, the Countess of Wessex added a black j and white pearl necklace, and matching drop earrings which were a wedding gift from Prince Edward.
As for shoes, Sophie opted for a three-inch heel court shoe made of silk crepe by Gina.
