Hundreds of friends and family members gathered in England to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say "I do." The wedding didn't disappoint and neither did the guest list! St. George's Chapel was filled with celebrities, royals of all kinds, adorable kids, and some very sweet couples.
We have put together some images of those who wore eyewear so you can catch up on current trends and styles amongst the lucky ones who got to see the very special day close up.
David Beckham is a man who knows how to make an entrance and he certainly did that at the royal wedding, arriving in half-framed tortoiseshell sunglasses that set Twitter talking. When a dress code requires a suit, it can be hard to stand out, but Beckham worked this accessory to the max.
Tired of those tiny sunglasses with pea-sized lenses that are, yes, very Instagrammable but do nothing to protect against the sun? Look to Princess Anne, a very unlikely style icon paving the way for the next big eyewear trend. Today, the 67-year-old, fresh off Saturday’s royal wedding between her nephew Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, attended the Chelsea Flower Show wearing a pert cream coat and kicky brown pumps that she coolly accessorized with a pair of sporty Adidas sunglasses. The frameless aerodynamic sunnies, which boasted mahogany red polarized lenses and are more often worn by UV-conscious athletes than an event-hopping royal, added just the right amount of contrast to the princess’s otherwise very prim look.
While Princess Anne’s choice seems a bit unorthodox—both because it is more expected for her to wear a classic Jackie O–type pair and also because they don’t resemble the current wave of Matrix sunglasses—the royal is actually right on trend. For Spring 2018, both Stella McCartney and Fenty x Puma showed some sporty incarnations on the runway—and it looks like like Princess Anne beat all of the Instagirls to the sun-deflecting punch by test-driving a pair first. What a ray of light.
