UPDATE: LONDON (AP) - Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived Friday at Buckingham Palace for their evening reception, with the bride changing from her much-talked-about gown into a second Sarah Burton creation, a white strapless evening dress.

After a brief rest at the home of William's father Prince Charles, the newlyweds returned to the palace for a dinner with about 300 family and friends.

St. James's Palace said William's bride had changed into her second outfit of the day, a strapless white satin evening gown with a circle skirt and diamante embroidered detail round the waist.

The couple, newly titled as the duke and duchess of Cambridge, will spend their first night as a married couple at Buckingham Palace.

UPDATE:  Just about everyone seemed to be having a great time at Britain's royal wedding. But one little bridesmaid was not amused.

Photographs of Prince William and Kate Middleton kissing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace show 3-year-old Grace van Cutsem looking grumpy and holding her hands over her ears.

Officials said Friday the little girl was overwhelmed by the scale of the event.

Middleton, now known as the duchess of Cambridge, tried to comfort van Cutsem at the time.

The young girl is a goddaughter of Prince William whose family is close to the royals. She and 3-year-old Eliza Lopes were the youngest of the bridesmaids at the event.
   

UPDATE: LONDON (AP) - Britain's new royal couple will be able to cut loose at tonight's reception; grandma won't be watching. Queen Elizabeth and her husband won't be attending the evening dinner dance for 300 close friends. That also allows Prince Harry
to make his best man's speech away from his grandparents' ears. British singer Ellie Goulding is reportedly going to perform.

And there are rumors that Harry has planned breakfast for those who dance the night away.

UPDATE: Newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton sealed their wedding with a pair of kisses on a balcony at Buckingham Palace, delighting thousands of spectators.

There was a roar of approval from the crowd as William and his bride exchanged a peck on the lips Friday. It was quickly followed by another, then a flyby of vintage and modern Royal Air Force planes.

The couple will now attend a lunch reception for 650 guests, followed by an evening party for 300 friends and family.
   

MSNBC.COM - Prince William and Kate Middleton were pronounced husband and wife at Westminster Abbey Friday in a royal occasion of dazzling pomp and pageantry that has attracted a huge global audience.

They took their vows at about 11:15 a.m. (6:15 a.m. ET) with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, officiating.

The prince, 28, dressed in the resplendent red tunic of the Irish Guards, appeared to initially struggle to get the ring, made of Welsh gold, onto the elegant, tiara-bedecked Middleton's finger.

William said "I will" in a clear confident voice, when asked if he would "love, comfort, honor and keep" Middleton. She appeared slightly emotional as she repeated her vows.

According to the Press Association, Prince William told a joke at the altar before the ceremony, saying: "We're supposed to have just a small family affair."

The line was spotted by Tina Lannin, lipreader for O'Malley Communications, the Press Association said. She also spotted Prince Harry nervously comment "Right, she is here now," as Middleton arrived.

William was spotted winking at his new bride after they exchanged vows.

Middleton, 29, arrived at the abbey at about 11 a.m. and, as soon as she did, Buckingham Palace issued the long-awaited details of what she was wearing: a long-sleeved lace gown and veil, designed by Sarah Burton, creative director for Alexander McQueen.

An estimated million well-wishers — as well as some protesters — flooded into the areas surrounding Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and other London landmarks.

Crowds were up at dawn waving flags for television cameras under steely gray skies and cool temperatures.

Cheers erupted as huge television screens showing the service began broadcasting at Trafalgar Square and Hyde Park.

Brenda Hunt-Stevenson, a 56-year-old retired teacher from Newfoundland, Canada, said there was only one thing on her mind.

"I want to see that kiss on that balcony. That's going to clinch it for me. I don't care what Kate wears. She is beautiful anyway," she said.

Even astronauts on the International Space Station offered best wishes to the couple in a video posted on YouTube.

Some 8,000 reporters and support staff have descended on the capital to capture the occasion in words and images, and, while some question a British government estimate of a global audience of two billion, hundreds of millions are certain to tune in.

Security was tight and as of 11 a.m. local time, police reported 18 arrests had been made for a variety of offenses including, possessing an offensive weapon, sexual assault, assault, criminal damage, a drug offense and being drunk and disorderly, NBC News reported.

The ceremony ended at about 12 noon (7 a.m. ET) and the newly wed couple traveled along street lined with even more ecstatic crowds in an open carriage.

Both smiled and waved as they made the journey, surrounded by cavalry soldiers in dress uniforms to Buckingham Palace. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
