Kate and William's wardrobe choice at James Middleton wedding: 'Not to steal thunder'


Kate’s younger brother Alizee Thevenet on September 11 in Bormes-les-Mimosas which is famous for being one of the most beautiful villages in the Cote D’Azur, France. Following a ceremony at the town hall, the couple headed to a beachside reception at Mediterranean restaurant Cafe Leoube. The event was attended by the couple’s closest family and friends including the Cambridges who, according to regal-themed podcast Pod Save the Queen, made an effort to keep a low profile. 

Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features the Mirror’s Sarah Bradbury and Zoe Forsey. 

Ms Bradbury said: “We think there were about 50 guests there, obviously their closest family and friends.

“The Cambridges were there […] it looks like [they] did their normal trick where they tried not to steal the thunder so they went for their dressed down look.

“We don’t know exactly what they were wearing but we know Wills was in an off-white suit and Kate was rocking a light green long dress, but all quite casual.

“George and Charlotte were pageboy and bridesmaid for Pippa’s wedding but we don’t know yet if they had the honour of doing that this time and of course if they were, Louis might have been involved this time.

“It sounds like it was a really nice, casual day in the south of France.”

Also in attendance was James’ sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews along with their children Arthur and Grace, while Michael and Carole Middleton were of course, present. 

The flower girls were the couple’s dogs Ella and Mabel, who were given the job of welcoming each guest as they arrived, according to Hello!.

“It was also quite a weird moment because when James went over to apologise Alizee actually thought he was a waiter and just ordered a drink. 

Ms Forsey joked: “She can’t be accused of fancying him just because of the royal ties there.” 

James and Alizee had been forced to postpone the event twice due to the coronavirus, with the original date having been planned for May 2020. 

The couple this week told Hello! Magazine: “We couldn’t be happier.

“It was wonderful to finally celebrate with family and friends and despite the challenges of a global pandemic we were relaxed and knew the day would eventually come.”

The Duchess’ younger brother is an entrepreneur while Alizee is a financial analyst.

James’ has previously spoken out about his frustration at being compared to his royal sister. 

When asked by TYD magazine in 2018 if he found it irritating that his work was often overshadowed by the Duchess’ status, he replied: “Yes, it does get frustrating.

“I work incredibly hard like any other person in business and work. 

“And aside from the fact of, yes, I am the brother of someone very important, I am at the end of the day, just James.”
