Cheers for new Royal couple
London (CNN) — Prince William of Wales slipped a gold ring onto the finger of Catherine Middleton today, and the couple vowed to love, comfort, honour and to keep each other in London’s biggest royal wedding in three decades.
Bells pealed over central London and flag-waving crowds roared in excitement as Middleton arrived at Westminster Abbey to marry William, the second in line to the British throne.
Middleton wore an ivory and white satin dress with lace sleeves and shoulders, designed by Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen fashion house.
“You look beautiful,” he told her as she arrived at the altar on the arm of her father Michael.
William wore the uniform of a colonel of the Irish Guards, a scarlet jacket and blue sash, as his brother, Prince Harry, accompanied him into the abbey.
Crowds cheered as his car drove the short distance from Clarence House to the abbey.
The couple will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge following their marriage, the royal family announced shortly before the wedding — thus avoiding giving the newest member of the royal family any title that would implicitly compare her to Diana, Princess of Wales.
