Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, That Wedding

The two princesses, daughters of William's uncle Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, made history at the royal wedding. In the future, fashion mishaps might all be judged against the benchmark they set. "Was it as bad as the princesses at the royal wedding?" people will ask of an unfortunate bridesmaid's outfit. "It was reviled," people might say. "Two-Beatrice-hats reviled." In all fairness, though, the pair made some pretty sweet lemonade from the sour reception their outfits received. Variously described as a toilet seat, a pretzel and a family-planning device, Beatrice's headpiece sold for tens of thousands of pounds at an online auction, the proceeds of which she donated to one of her mother's charities.
