Just married!


The Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge have bowed in respect in front of Queen Elizabeth, and are now making their way to the carriage which will ferry Prince William and Kate Middleton to Buckingham Palace for their wedding reception.

The couple is being driven to the palace in an open-top 1902 State Landau, but the 1881 Glass Coach is on standby in case of rain.

The carriage, which will make its way past an estimated 1-miilion people who've packed the streets of London.

But Kate has already broken royal tradition -- unlike her predecessors, she hung onto her bouquet of flowers, while royal wedding enthusiasts were expecting her to lay it at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, a tradition started by Queen Elizabeth III in 1923.

Clarence House has just confirmed the bridal bouquet, in keeping with Royal Wedding tradition, will be placed at the door to the tomb of the Unkown Warrior at a later stage.

Her Royal Highness, the Dutchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was expected to place the bouquet there herself before she left Westminster Abbey, but she walked past the tomb before climbing into the 1902 State Landau with her husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
