Celebrating in the streets of London
Text size Aa Aa

Around one million people thronged the centre of London to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Huge video screens were set up so that everyone could enjoy all the pageantry and romance of the ceremony.
People had come from all over the world to be part of history in the making. Many had also camped out on the pavements for up to three days in order to bag places with a good view.  
London provided a perfect backdrop for the occasion, and absolutely everybody agreed that Prince William in his Irish Guards uniform was handsome and that Kate’s dress, by Sarah Burton, was sensational. 
Many people in the crowd were also dressed to impress, wearing wedding veils and gowns, masks, Union Jack hats and t-shirts.
After a cloudy start and a sprinkling of raindrops, the weather held and the crowds made the most of a Royal Bank Holiday.
