They met in college and after a 9 years of courtship, the world has witnessed a fairytale wedding. Prince William and Kate Middleton, who have now received their new titles from the Queen, wedded this morning in a beautiful ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London.
Prince William and brother Prince Harry arrived to the wedding this morning wearing uniforms fitting of the title Prince- Prince William in a red uniform of the Irish Gods and Prince Harry in a blue uniform of the Blues and Royals. When the bride-to-be arrived, younger sister and Honorary Bridesmaid Pipa Middleton was the first to greet Kate, who is now in line to be the future Queen of England, as she exited a Rolls-Royce. Michael Middleton walked his oldest daughter down the aisle and the ceremony commenced. Beginning with a hymn, the ceremony was traditional; aside from Kate Middleton and Prince William deciding to exchange only one wedding band and omitting the bride’s vow to be obedient.
Married in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, Kate Middleton wore a beautiful wedding gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Kate’s gown was designed with a heart-shaped corset and lace with a flattering but conservative V-neck. The highlight of the wedding had to be when Prince William said his I Dos, and put the welsh gold band on Kate Middleton’s finger! 1,900 guests were in attendance.
