Prince William and Kate Middleton have stepped on to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to exchange a kiss and wave to the huge crowds. The newlyweds sealed their union as they appeared on the balcony alongside their families at 1.25pm before an RAF flypast.
Both Prince William and Kate Middleton leaned in for the fleeting but loving kiss as the crowds cheered. The bride giggled afterwards while the groom smiled broadly. The kiss provoked cheers from the already ecstatic crowds, and was repeated during the flypast.
After more than five minutes of waving to the crowds, the couple walked hand in hand back through the doors of the palace. Earlier, stepping on to the balcony, Kate appeared to gasp “Oh my” as the royal couple saw the thousands of well-wishers lining the Mall before being joined by members of their family.
