It's exactly what I imagined she would wear, lace long sleeves - fitted and classic - veil close to the hair.

 The design doesn't veer off from anything she's worn in the past - traditional and time-honoured.  The only thing "trendy" would be the side and back panels of the skirt which appear to be pintucked at each seam. 

I made this gown several times in the 90's.  It was a popular style then with variations.  I did think there was some disparity between her bodice and skirt. 

Her hair is similar to how QEII wore hers for her wedding.  Although, Kate's face is getting a little old to keep wearing it down for formal occasions and still look good.

She looked like a typical upper class English bride.

I like the embroidery on the dress, but that's about it for me.

Yup. While the dress design is blah to me, I can appreciate the craftmanship that went into it.
The lace pattern on the left and right sides of the bodice are perfect mirror images of each other. That takes a lot of precision.

That's because the lace was hand-made for the pieces, actually done in the form of the pattern. That's why I am pretty sure that none of the women working on it would have thought that it was made for a dress used in a movie. They must have suspected what it was they where working on.

per today's Daily Telegraph, Kate's dress itself was a copy of another "princely" bridal gown 2 yrs ago. Hard to deny when you see the photo...

The similarities are based on the fact they are both inspired by Grace Kelly's dress.

Both wedding dresses are lovely and very similar.
The style is not uncommon - ever since the 1950s.
Very feminine and pretty.
I prefer Grace Kelly's dress myself.
I like the Belgian bride's lace a little more than I do Catherine's special 'thistle etc.' lace.
It's the stiffness that I like about it.
