Royal wedding: A stylish marriage for William and Kate

Prince William and his newly titled bride, the Duchess of Cambridge, kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, watched by thousands of cheering well-wishers.
Vows were exchanged and the wedding dress was revealed, but royal watchers around the world were still waiting for that magical moment – when Prince William and Duchess Catherine Middleton stepped out onto the balcony of Buckingham Palace for their first kiss.

Wearing a broad smile, a Wartski wedding ring of Welsh gold and an ivory gown with lace applique, Kate Middleton – now Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge – joined The Firm amid the pomp and pageantry Britain prides itself on performing well.

Before a global television audience of many millions, Kate played her part to perfection. From the dress – by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, kept a secret until the last moment and sending the British fashion industry into paroxyms of ecstacy – to the 1936 Cartier diamond tiara loaned by the Queen, she looked every inch the fairytale princess.

Which, of course, she was not. The Queen's conferring of the ancient title of Duke of Cambridge on her grandson just hours before the ceremony deprived his wife of the title Princess Catherine. But she is a duchess, which is several rungs up the social ladder than her standing before entering the 1,000-year-old abbey this morning.
