Prince William and Princess Catherine’s captivating Royal Wedding were released by St. James Palace as the newlyweds boarded a plane and embarked on their top secret honeymoon on Saturday.
The marriage of the second in line to the British throne was led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and was attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have also flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry of the Royal Wedding.
The wedding pictures show a happy couple — now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — surrounded by their family on their big day, taken in The Throne Room of Buckingham Palace immediately after the bride and groom’s union at nearby Westminster Abbey. One snaps shows just Wills and Kate. A second features the pair with their bridesmaids and pageboys. The final image adds the proud parents – Prince Charles and his wife Camilla and Michael and Carole Middleton; also featured are Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, best man Prince Harry, Pippa, Kate’s kid sister and her maid of honor, and James Middleton, their brother.
The Royal Wedding pictures were taken by Hugo Burnand. The Royal Family took the wedding photographs when Charles and Camilla married in 2005. He also snapped pics of Charles when the Prince of Wales turned 60 three years ago.
