Prince William, heir to the British throne, and his bride Kate Middleton kissed — more than once — on the balcony of Buckingham Palace before a throng of cheering well-wishers, after the couple married in a historic ceremony watched by millions.

The couple quickly kissed Friday while tens of thousands watched them from the palace grounds, as the newlyweds were joined by the royal wedding party, including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. A few minutes later William leaned forward and kissed his bride again.

Photos of the day and images of the Official Royal Wedding Programme are available below.
