Welp … Prince William and Kate Middleton, the now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are married and today we get our first look at the official photos taken by photographer Hugo Burnand just after the wedding ceremony was completed. The newlyweds posed with members of their wedding party as well as Their Royal Highnesses Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh. Check out the serious but playful photos below.
Kate Middleton and Prince William’s official royal wedding pictures have been released – and it is the turn of a cheeky-looking pageboy to steal the show. After bridesmaid Grace Van Cutsem drew smiles yesterday as she clapped her hands over her ears against the noice of the crowd while the newly-weds kissed, Tom Pettifer leaned in over the bride’s head for this shot. The happy couple look to be enjoying the moment too, with big smiles, William leaning towards his bride and her hand resting affectionately on her husband’s knee. The photos were taken by the couple’s official wedding photographer Hugo Burnand in the Buckingham Palace throne room. Best man Prince Harry wore a big grin as he joined his brother, their family and Prince William’s in-laws the Middletons for the official family photo. And William’s bride looks every bit a princess as they pose for their official wedding portrait.
It’s no surprise that the official photos of the Royal Wedding would look perfect … but these photos look especially perfect. The colors, the placement … just … perfect. Kate looked so amazing. I understand Sarah Burton designed Kate‘s dress as an homage to Grace Kelly‘s elegant wedding dress and the effect is striking. Wills looks absolutely THE picture of princely perfection in his red jacket. And will you PLEASE look at that huge grin on Prince Harry‘s face? He’s the next to get married, you know. I mean … it’s possible he may stay a lifelong bachelor but my guess is that he will take a wife … and I hope that wife will be his currently estranged girlfriend Chelsy Davy. They may be broken up now but don’t forget … Wills and Kate broke up a few times too ;) In any event, I’m rambling … I do LOVE these official photos. See folks, fairytales do come true ;)
