Prince William, heir to the British throne, and his bride Kate Middleton were married, April 29th 2011, in a historic church before 1,900 friends, dignitaries and celebrities dressed in colourful hats and formal morning coats.

Middleton, wearing a fitted, white V-neck gown with a long-sleeved lace overlay and nearly three-metre train, was earlier walked up the aisle at Westminster Abbey by her father, Michael.

The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, creative director at the house of the late Alexander McQueen.

Middleton was also wearing a 1936 Cartier halo-tiara, lent to her by the Queen.

The couple rode back to Buckingham Palace on Friday, greeting hundreds of thousands of well-wishers lining London's streets.

Between 600,000 and one million people lined the streets of London to get a glimpse of the royal couple, and a worldwide television audience of up to two billion people was expected.
