The wed­ding in words and pic­tures:

Halifax Courier - - Front Page -

NEW­LY­WEDS Wil­liam and Kate sealed their love with a kiss on the fa­mous Buck­ing­ham Palace bal­cony to the de­light of the nation.

The bride and groom ap­peared with their fam­i­lies to ac­knowl­edge the thou­sands of well-wish­ers crowded along The Mall.

They ex­changed a kiss to roars of ap­proval. Then, as an RAF fly­past swept to­wards the palace, the cou­ple kissed again. Wil­liam and Kate were pro­claimed “man and wife” at a his­toric cer­e­mony at West­min­ster Abbey.

The fu­ture king and his beau­ti­ful bride, who will now one day be queen, pledged their love for one an­other in the an­cient sur­rounds, watched by mil­lions across the globe.

In a stun­ning ivory gown de­signed by Sarah Bur­ton, Kate walked up the red-car­peted aisle a com­moner.

With her new hus­band at her side and a ring on her fin­ger, the for­mer Miss Mid­dle­ton left the abbey as HRH the Duchess of Cam­bridge – Wil­liam was made a duke by the Queen on Fri­day morn­ing.

The crowd cheered – and for a mo­ment the sun broke though a cloudy grey day.

A con­gre­ga­tion of 1,900 and up to two bil­lion peo­ple saw the cou­ple ex­change vows, as they were beamed live around world. Po­lice es­ti­mated that crowd num­bers peaked at one mil­lion along the route to the abbey.

In the pres­ence of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Corn­wall, Kate’s par­ents Ca­role and Michael Mid­dle­ton and other guests, Wil­liam placed Kate’s sim­ple gold wed­ding band on her fin­ger.
