Kate Middleton smiled beautifully and glided down the aisle to marry Prince William. Though a happy occasion for two lovebirds, this union is also expected to revitalize the British monarchy. Kate and William arrived in an open carriage to Buckingham Palace as hundreds of thousands cheered. Many were there in person to witness the arrival, and about 2 billion across the globe watched on television as the couple vowed their lives to each other.
Will the new royal couple live happily ever after? Or will it end in divorce like William’s parents? Hopefully the young couple can sustain the obvious happiness that seems to radiate from the each of them when in one another’s company.
Besides the nuptials, the talk of the day is Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. Middleton, who was bestowed the title of Duchess Middleton, stepped out of the Rolls Royce receiving full admiration. High lace collar, low neckline, long sleeves along with a long train. Accentuated the satin ivory and white Alexander McQueen dress. Kate’s hair looked stunning in a tiara belonging to Queen Elizabeth II and a dramatic veil. Prince William—now the duke of Cambridge–wore the scarlet tunic of an Irish Guards officer. He looked like a strong and dedicated military man.
Smiling from ear to ear, royal couple were driven to Buckingham Palace in the open-topped State Laundau. This beautiful carriage was built in 1902 and escorted by four white horses and followed by troops in scarlet uniforms on horseback. Two reception parties were being held. The queen’s party will have 650 guests and the dinner dance will have 300 guests which are close friends.
The young newly wed couple will have the entire evening to party and celebrate their union as the queen and her husband spend time away.
