Royal wedding or what not to wear

Hello world!
It's a joyous day because it's the day of the royal wedding.
Prince William finally married his Kate (who is now automatically the Duchess of Cambridge, the Countess of Strathearn and the Baroness of Carrickfergus - in case you were wondering). 

Leaving the church...

I know that lots of people couldn't care less, but I have a soft spot for that kind of thing. 
At the office we even had a team breakfast in honor of the newly weds and that we also got some mimosas to get through the work day lifted the spirit even more.
So congratulations, William and Kate. I hope you will have a successful life together. :)

My favorite picture of the two.

Having that said, it's time to take a look at the wedding guests (since everybody only seems to talk about how lovely Kate's wedding dress is). 
Let's see if we can spot the ones having an issue with not being in the spotlight (or so it seems if you look at their attention-seeking outfits) and those that should be mentioned for other reasons.

First up we have this photo: Carole Middleton (Kate's mother), Queen Elizabeth and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
Carole looks pretty good to be honest.
The Queen could make a nicer face, I think, but it is really Camilla who draws my attention here. While the colors she chose for her gown are not "that" bad, I feel the hat is a bit unfortunate. 
Her facial expression is worse though. 
Oh Camilla, why can I never see a photo of you with a normal smile? 
You always look as if you are about to pass a kidney stone...

Pastel rules or what?

Next, please!
Here we have Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, the wife of Britain's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Apparently she couldn't decide what to wear because she is sporting a turban-ish head scarf AND that giant red flower on her head.

I am sure humming birds would find her attractive...

Zara Phillips, the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, opted for a different head gear. 
To me it looks like a combination of satellite dish meets gift wrap ribbon and I am wondering if she is secretly trying to send a signal to aliens with that thing.

Bigger is not always better.

I have saved the best for last and since I could not decide which photo to use I will just show both.
Those two ladies are Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, daughters of Prince Andrew.
Their dresses: Really ugly... those bows and ornaments make it look like as if they had pulled the clothes out of grandma's closet.
The real kicker are their hats though. 
Eugenie's blue "hat" with this flowery thing and those feathers standing up high make her look like a futuristic flight attendant working on a space ship.
My favorite is Beatrice's "hat" though. 
I mean what the heck was she thinking when she chose that thing? 
If Zara is trying to send messages to outer space, Beatrice must surely be able to receive some.
An alternative explanation would be that both, Eugenie and Beatrice, are already space aliens and that is their traditional head gear. 
Take me to your leader, girls.

Their facial expressions are not helping...

Warning: This head gear is not suited for driving.
