Princess Catherine's hair was expectedly perfect at the royal wedding on Friday April 29 at Westminster Abbey. In the days leading to the ceremony, rumors flew that Kate Middleton
would wear her hair down thanks to her hairstylist, Richard Ward, who said Kate's one requirement was this: "William must recognize me by the time I get to the altar."
Ward told the press that he and his team endured many practice runs before the big. In the end, the Duchess of Cambridge got her wish: She looked like her very best true self with an elegant half-up hairstyle adorned with a simple tiara and veil.
