Did guests stick to the royal wedding dress code? Let’s find out

The Royal wedding on Saturday obviously had a dress code but how many guests stuck to it?

With Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding having an informal atmosphere to it, it was expected that a couple of rules would be bended as compared to Prince William’s 2011 wedding to his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Despite the informal nature of the wedding however, certain rules had to apply and such was the case for the ceremonial dress code of the guests.

Prince Harry and Meghan's dress code was simple and not too restrictive with guests being told to don a "morning suit or lounge suit" for men and a "day dress with a hat" for women.

No showing too much leg at the wedding.

2.Accessorize with a fascinator or a hat
