  • Prince William and Kate Middleton

Kate, 37, channelled Hollywood glamour in a bespoke white one-shoulder gown by designer favourite Alexander McQueen, with tulle flowers embroidered on one shoulder.

"I thought that the earrings looked stunning, it was a very fairy tale princess look", British jeweler and pearl specialist Claudia Bradby tells PEOPLE, adding: "The dress gave the earrings space to be attractive on their own and it was all very feminine".

Like numerous jewels Kate has inherited from her mother-in-law, she chose to modernize the original design, swapping the pearls worn by Diana (with different diamond detailing) for a smaller more contemporary pearl.

Sarah Ferguson has weighed in on the so-called "feud" between Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, saying it's akin to how she and the late Princess Diana were viewed as "rivals".

Prince William wore a traditional black tuxedo but strayed from tradition slightly with a pair of black velvet loafers.
