Favorite Royal Wedding Photos

The world's newest princess, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, was a gorgeous bride in a gown created by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen and wearing the Cartier "Halo" tiara loaned by HM The Queen. The gown seemed to take the best characteristics of two of the world's favorite royal brides, Princess Grace and Princess Margaret, and reinterpret them for a modern bride.

Prince William, now the Duke of Cambridge, and his bride delighted crowds with a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace. Some people had camped out for days for a chance to see them.

And this is the photo I've waited months to see: a beautiful picture of a very happy Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, clearly enjoying her day as a bridesmaid beside her handsome older cousin Prince Harry.

The young stars of the day queued up at the Abbey, focused on their important roles at the wedding. Well, everyone except Master Tom Petiffer who seemed to have realized there were cameras at every angle.
