The Royal Wedding

Is there a better topic for an English lesson this week than the royal wedding?
I don't think so. The ideas how you can discuss this event are endless. From family relations to dresses, there are countless things worth talking about.
I've collected some photographs with interesting facts and vocabulary. Enjoy it. Fashion blogs are also popular anyway:)

The royal couple: Prince William and Kate Middleton. While her wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton, she had a DIY make-up! (DIY=Do it yourself.)

Kate's sister is holding her train! Its length is about 9 feet or 2 metres 70 cm. (1 foot = 0.3048 metres)

Kate's mother, Carole Middleton; Queen Elizabeth II and William's stepmother, Camilla were all wearing coat dresses in pale colours: sky-blue, canary yellow and champagne colour.

Page boys and little bridesmaids are important participants of all royal weddings. You can spot the inevitable ballerina shoes on the girls and lily-of-the-valley hair wreaths.

David Beckham's Ralph Lauren suit was stunning. Victoria is pregnant, she was wearing a dress of her own design and extremely high heels.
