William Marries Kate as Cheering Crowds Throng London

Prince William and Kate Middleton married in London’s Westminster Abbey today as 1 million people lined the streets and an estimated 2 billion around the world watched on television.

Kate, dressed in a gown by Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton, and the prince, in red military uniform, made their vows after driving separately to the abbey through flag-waving, cheering crowds. After the ceremony, the newly married couple drove in an open state landau carriage to Buckingham Palace, where they appeared on the balcony and kissed.
