The Royals and Kate

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have just crossed the Horse Guards Parade and are now driving to the Abbey.

The Queen, in brilliant primrose, a blue rug on her knees, is now leaving Buckingham Palace with the Duke of Edinburgh. He will turn ninety shortly, and is the longest-serving consort in British history. They celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary last November.

Outside the Goring Hotel, the bridesmaids and pages are gathering.

Inside the Abbey, the Duchess of Cornwall looks beautifully dressed by English designer Anna Valentine, and the Prince of Wales, in uniform, looks a bit hangdog.

The Queen's arrival is greeted by trumpets. Everyone in this sitting room thinks she looks lovely.

The bride has just entered her car with her father and is waving happily.

She has "commanded respect with her dignity and modesty". (The BBC)
