The Royal Wedding: William and Kate
The most anticipated wedding of the year has come and gone. Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially a married couple. In a beautiful ceremony in Westminster Abbey among world leaders and close friends, the couple exchanged vows. After the ceremony, the couple made their way to Buckingham Palace where they shared the much-anticipated kiss. Following a ceremony hosted by the Queen in Buckingham Palace, the couple drove off in an Aston Martin with Prince William in the driver’s seat. While at Buckingham Palace, William and Kate posed for official photographs with their families.
Friday’s Royal Wedding may not have ushered in a new dawn for the royal family, but it certainly proved that the British still know how to combine pageantry, solemnity and romance better than anyone else in the world. Carrying on the royal tradition of taking a title upon marriage, Prince William and Kate Middleton became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The title dates back to the early 18th century during the Stuart rule, and the title has been extinct since 1981 when the last Duke of Cambridge died without an heir. The Queen also gave William the titles of Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, titles which Kate also came into when they were married.
