Kate Catherine Middleton might be described by some as a “modern princess,” but she still values a bit of tradition.
As part of her royal wedding earlier today, she made sure to keep with the Old English wedding rhyme of “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”
Check out the breakdown below:
Something Old -
Catherine’s wedding dress featured a long-sleeved lace overlay by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. The pattern used on the dress is known as the Carrickmacross lace-making technique and is said to be a tribute to traditional British craftsmanship.
Something New -
Her something new came from her parents as they gave her a pair of leaf-shaped diamond earrings made by Robinson Pelham to match her tiara.
Something Borrowed -
Catherine’s headgear featured a 1936 halo-style Cartier tiara lent to her by The Queen.
Something Blue -
And in order to include something blue, Catherine had a small amount of blue ribbon sewn into her gown.
