I had to split this photo into two because my feels overwhelmed me when I realized that Catherine is holding onto her two babies while throwing an absolute over-the-moon smile at her sister, Pippa. These two girls have been under constant scrutiny since news leaked of Catherine’s involvement with William. Countless rumors, and useless gossip, that followed Catherine’s wedding to William, featuring sister Pip, could have broken these girls. But today, they stood as sisters and Catherine got to see her little sis become a beautiful bride. I can’t even explain how happy this makes me & how beautiful this one photo is when you’ve seen nearly their whole adult life unravel before the cameras. MIDDLETON SISTERS FTW ♡♡

Pippa Middleton Matthews was a radiant bride in a bespoke Giles Deacon creation
Giles said of the collaboration: “I was thrilled to work with Pippa on her wedding dress. The dress is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped detail at the back. The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliquéd to create the illusion of the dress having ‘no seams’. The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has layer upon layer to enable a floor-sweeping movement. It’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion.” | May 20, 2017
