Pippa Middleton first had eyes popping at the wedding of her sister, Kate, to Prince William in 2011 when her photogenic backside got nearly as much applause as the nuptials themselves. But Saturday, the famous little sibling was the center of attention at her own wedding, to millionaire financier James Matthews.
The ceremony took place about 50 miles outside of London in the ancient English village church of St. Mark’s in Englefield. The bride looked gorgeous (of course) in a lace-encrusted gown from British designer Giles Deacon. Kate and William’s two little ones, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 2, served as pageboy and bridesmaid.
All that “happily ever after” stuff didn’t impress social media much and, in fact, they made it a point to be outright disinterested. Let’s start with the cute stuff, shall we?

Last but not least, a poem for the beautiful bride that sums up the thoughts of many peasants and royals alike:
