Dhaka, Apr 29 (bdnews24.com) — Prince William and Kate Middleton have been pronounced man and wife at Westminster Abbey.
Some 1,900 guests watched the couple exchange their vows, with many millions watching at home, reports the BBC.
They have left the Abbey, with Kate Middleton now the Duchess of Cambridge, amid cheers from thousands of well-wishers lining the procession route.
They are making their way to Buckingham Palace where there will be a buffet reception for 650 guests.
Miss Middleton is wearing an ivory and lace gown designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
The service has run smoothly so far but there was a tiny moment of drama as the prince struggled to place the wedding ring on Miss Middleton's finger.
Following a long tradition, the ring has been fashioned from Welsh gold given to Prince William by the Queen.
After the couple said their vows, in which she did not promise to obey William, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Rowan Williams, declared: "I pronounce that they be man and wife together, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen."
