Prince William & Duchess Kate Kiss!
Prince William laid one on his blushing bride Kate Middleton on Friday. This was their first smooch as a married couple, and Kate's first kiss as a princess!
William's parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana shared their first kiss as a married couple in 1981 on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as a cheering crowd looked on. This has become a royal tradition. On July 23, 1986, Prince Edward married Sarah Ferguson and also chose to kiss his bride on the balcony as England watched.
William and Kate carried on this tradition as well, sharing their first smooch on that same balcony!
The young couple wed at Westminster Abbey as the world looked on. Prior to the highly anticipated kiss, Kate arrived at the church in a stunning Sarah Burton gown — complete with lace sleeves with a plunging neckline and full veil. She entered the Abbey led by her father, while sister and maid of honor Pippa held her train.
William — in full uniform and alongside his brother Harry — arrived at around 10:15 a.m. local time wearing a red military jacket, with Harry in the more traditional dark coat. the ceremony lasted a bit more than an hour, as William and Kate smiled and stared at each other before exchanging vows and eventually making their way out of the Abbey, down the red carpet and into the carriage for a ride through London.
