Smile On the Balcony

I love the tradition that Royals appear on the balcony, wave and sometimes kiss after they married!

Which balcony-appearance has been your favourite and why?

Post pictures of several balcony-scenes and kisses here.

Willem-Alexander & Maxima

My personal favourite balcony-scene!
They looked so happy together and their kiss was so cute! It was great to see them both so happy waving down to the people!
I have to say that I also love the way the balcony was decorated back then!

Good idea!

I liked Felipe and Letizia's. Mainly because for Elena and Cristina's weddings, there were no balcony appearances. At F&L's we got to see the whole RF and for me, that was great

Also the then Princess Elizabeth because she looked so beautiful and looking at the photos it looked so grand!

I think it's great when the whole family appears on the balcony! (like in Denmark! )

Harald & Sonja
Sadly no kiss ,but a cute scene, too. The people in front of the palace started screaming of joy when Harald took his wife's hand and they were waving together. King Olav appeared on the balcony,too.

I guess my favourite would be the Balcony scene of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Beautiful bride, handsome groom, cute Marius, love, seen in every move.

Here's Philippe and Mathilde's balcony scene:

Mathilde and Mary are fans of kissing their men on the cheek!

By far, my favorite balcony scene is Mette-Marit and Haakon. My favorite part is when Haakon picked Marius up so that Marius could see the fireworks better.

I have to say Mette-Marit and Haakon, also. I just love the look of Haakon with his little step-son.

My favorites were Haakon and Mette-Marit and Frederik and Mary. Maxima and Willem-Alexander were very loving too. I'm a sucker for the balcony scenes.

Beatrix was a beautiful bride. I love her huge, flowing veil. I also love the white tulips on the balcony......very Holland.

Does anyone know:

Who was the first Royal couple that kissed on the balcony?
I always wondered who made the start.

I'm just taking a wild guess and saying Prince Charles and Princess Diana, or maybe Princess Anne and her first husband (Mark Phillips, I believe). I just looked for balcony pictures from waaaay back when and so far none have come up. Again, I'm just taking a guess. For all I know, it could have started in Denmark or Spain. Anyone want to try and find out the real start of the balcony kiss, please be my guest. I found so much pictures leading to Romeo and Juliet, so I don't know if its a sign or not.
