Royal wedding guests: Who was the best dressed?

These lucky people were invited to the wedding of the year and here’s what they wore.

In the countdown to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding ceremony, a star-studded line up of guests, including Oprah Winfrey, David and Victoria Beckham and Idris Elba, filled up St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The theme was day dresses and hats so we couldn’t wait to see what the 600 guests would wear.

Pippa Middleton

Pippa Middleton, who stole the show in her bridesmaid dress at the last royal wedding, chose a demure long-sleeved mint green floral dress with pink pleat detailing by Brit brand The Fold.

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham opted for navy blue, wearing a sleek high-neck, midi-length dress with fashion-forward slit sleeves. The designer chose a matching pillbox hat and set her ensemble off with bright red heels. Stylish as ever, David Beckham choose a navy tailcoat and grey trousers.

He was there with his fiancee Sabrina Dhowre, who showed off her style credentials in a dress, jacket, shoes and handbag all by Gucci. She topped off her ensemble with a navy saucer hat.
