The young royals, Middletons, and Middleton-adjacents stepped out for the society wedding of Charlie Gilkes and Anneke von Trotha Taylor in Monopoli, Italy at the Carlo V Castle yesterday, September 19. Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and her Male Waity boyfriend Dave Clark, Princess Eugenie, professional wedding guest Pippa Middleton and her Male Waity boyfriend Nico Jackson, James Middleton and his girlfriend Donna Air, and Carole Middleton were all in attendance. Not in attendance were the Grumpy Faced Prince William who was unable to go due to taking over the Malta trip and pregnant Kate Middleton who is stuck in London or Bucklebury or somewhere without her mommy to take care of her.
Man, Will and Kate must be so pissed right now. Will missed out on the big society wedding because Kate dropped out of Malta due to hyperemesis gravidarum, and Kate lost her nanny due to her mom attending that society wedding. Sad face.
Let’s do pictures and fashion. We’ll start with the bride because it’s her day, so Pips can just wait dammit. Anneke von Trotha Taylor wore this beautiful white lace gown with capped sleeves and a sweetheart neckline when she married Charlie Gilkes. The dress doesn’t have much of a train but she wore a cathedral-length veil. I think she looks lovely, but the hair falling in her face is a bit unfortunate. Overall, though, very beautiful.
Pippa wore a pink and purple Tabitha Webb Narcissus dress with a deep v-neck. Not going to lie, I actually think Pip looks really good here, much improved over her last fashion choice at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Nico spiced up his dark suit with a light pink tie. He’s giving his best Blue Steel in this photo.
Eugenie wore a red dress, and I swear I can’t find a good picture of her anywhere. It’s like the photogs completely ignored her. It looks like it could have been a really cute dress, I wish we could have gotten a look at it.
Beatrice wore a white button down shirt and an orange skirt (and some really ugly shoes), while Dave Clark wore a light blue tie with his suit. I’m not feeling this outfit. I don’t like the whole “white button down shirt for formal events” thing.
Carole wore a floral patterned gown with capped sleeves in a dull shade of greenish-grey. I’m not going to say I like Carole’s style but she’s dressed better than this before. This is a miss. Donna Air wore what looks like a light blue dress with maybe a floral scarf and then belted the whole thing. Or maybe it’s all one dress? I think the light blue part would be great on it’s own.

And here’s our dear Harry–I’m putting him last because, well, his fashion doesn’t really vary. Harry wore a blue tie with his suit. I still think he looks best in a polo shirt and white pants.
