The gang’s all there! As the royal family kicks off festivities for Zara Phillips’s wedding, taking place Saturday afternoon in Scotland, guests – including some VIPs – arrived in style.

Friday, Prince William and Kate surfaced in Edinburgh, where they boarded a family yacht for an evening reception toasting William’s cousin and her soon-to-be-groom, rugby player Mike Tindall.

Kate, clad in the same green silk Diane von Furstenberg “Maja” dress she wore for an event in Los Angeles, gave onlookers a new view of her frock, showing off the delicate buttons that run down the back. Her husband followed closely behind.

After the wedding ceremony at Canongate Kirk, guests will celebrate with the newlyweds into the night at the Holyroodhouse castle.
