I'm hoping we'll see them head back to BP. I was suprised they rode to Clarence house in the open-top convertible.

The band of Catherine's engagement ring is gold! A silver wedding ring definitely would have looked tacky!!

Long service, seriously? It was the shortest royal wedding i've ever watched. Attention was on Catherine and William.

How would Diana have affected the atmosphere of a wedding? Diana this, Diana that. William and Catherine have had the day they obviously wanted, nobody dead or alive would have changed that. Diana would have probably stolen attention from the beautiful bride and the stunning service. It would have made the day full of comparisons and so far, this forum and the press have managed to avoid them for the majority.
And are you suggesting that having The Queen at a wedding makes it a bad occasion? It has been said over and over again that this wedding was William and Catherine, HM has had very little influence over what happened today.

Does that mean William and Catherine didn't want this wedding?

I know it's gold, numerous people have said it's gold. Gold is tacky IMO and silver isn't. My opinion, obviously you don't share it, there's no problem.

I'm guessing the couple is due to arrive back at BP seeing as the reporters have returned to the palace.

Someone said there were three kisses at the balcony. Does anyone know where all these three can be seen? I only saw two on BBC coverage.

The couple were very cute and blushing on the balcony. It was sweet to see William trying to catch his bride's attention and then ask "One more?" to which she nodded and then they kissed.

I was replying to the person who said Charlene and Alberts wedding woudn't be beautiful. I have already stated that this is what Catherine and William wanted.

Wow, the BBC? I wouldn't expect such errors from them. Although I've come across several mistakes by British commentators on other channels.
But then some of the articles coming out of the British press prior to the wedding made glaring mistakes about foreign royals.
For all the media hype about the 2 billion strong audience, one would expect better from anchors, particularly if they're so-called experts.
I find the European media better informed. The Swedish commentators at Victoria's wedding identified even the minor royals like Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath of Jordan accurately.

I did not hear Diana's name mentioned. Why would she be mentioned during the service?

Get used to it. We're going to hear "Princess Catherine" a lot. We know it's wrong, but that doesn't change what boneheaded TV commentators are going to say.

In the next hear I think they will known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It's going to stick to them, just like The Earl and Countess of Wessex stuck on Edward and Sophie.

That is because she is Catherine and not CP Victoria!! Why is everyone comparing her and her dress with other royal brides?! Look at her and enjoy her for who she is!!

Wedding bands go on the left hand. That's where her engagement ring had been. So the engagement ring got moved over to the right hand so her wedding band could go on her left.

She moved the ring so that William could put the wedding ban on first then she placed her engagment ring on after the wedding ring.

That doesn't mean they don't love each other, or they wish they were somewhere else, so that they were bored. They were being watched by billions of people around the world, and were probably trying to quell their nerves enough to not burst into tears and/or fits of laughter.

I just.....gosh. I guess I want to know just what you all want from them.
We may not have been there personally, but everyone can read their body language and tell they weren't showing a lot of joy. There wasn't even a lovers glance. Kate looked bored, sad or angry. I've never known a bride to look like that.

I don't think Victoria and Daniel were all about the touching I think V&D was so in love that it shown through them. I'm not expecting Will and Kate to jump up and down but I was expecting some kind of joy at least.
