Prince William, second-in-line to the British throne, and his long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton were declared married on Friday at a service in London’s Westminster Abbey.

William, 28, and Middleton, 29, exchanged vows before nearly 2,000 guests in the abbey and a television and internet audience of millions.

They were formally declared married by the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the spiritual leader of the Church of England.

Kate Middleton emerged from a Rolls-Royce at Westminster Abbey on Friday in a long sleeved dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.
She began the long walk up the aisle to the strains of Charles Parry's “I was glad.”

Guests filled London’s Westminster Abbey on Friday to see Prince William marry his bride, a royal occasion of dazzling British pomp and pageantry set to attract a huge global audience.

A congregation of some 2,000 people, including 50 heads of state as well as charity workers and war veterans who know the prince from military training gathered in the abbey, which has been the coronation site for the monarchy since William the Conqueror was crowned in 1066.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to cram the flag-lined streets of London to catch a glimpse of cavalrymen in shining ornamental breastplates, groomed horses and the ornate carriages that will carry senior royal figures from the service. (Reuters)
