Prince William & Kate Middleton Are Married!

Kate Middleton

After marrying her prince, commoner Kate Middleton became Catherine, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.

Congratulations to the royal couple! Prince William, the 28-year-old prince and the second-in-line to the British throne, wed his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton, 29, in London today in a grand ceremony at Westminister Abbey that, thanks to the many cameras both inside and outside of the church, felt, at times, more like a movie than a real-life wedding.

Before 2000 guests (and an estimated two billion watching around the world,) Prince William and Kate were made the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and, according to the Globe and Mail, looked "nervous but happy" during their vows, which they gracefully pulled off without botching either of each other's names. More Details Emerge About Kate Middleton's Storybook Wedding

According to the Sun, Prince William was seen mouthing to Kate, "You look absolutely beautiful," before the ceremony began. 12 Facts You Didn't Know About Kate Middleton

The only small fumble during the ceremony occured when Prince William struggled to place Kate's wedding ring on her finger. (As previously reported, William opted to not wear a wedding ring himself.)

But, despite this small glitch, the prince and his princess bride seemed to have finally gotten their happily-ever-after ending.
