As tradition has it, the newly married couple Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, greeted the people of Britain and visitors from around the world as husband and wife on the balcony of Buckingham Place. Their appearance was met by a roar of cheers from the throngs gathered below.
Then they kissed.
That sealed what has already been a very long day, even days, for many royal wedding fans who camped overnight on the streets of London, and then rushed the gates of Buckingham Palace for the traditional hello-it's-official balcony greeting. It was cool, especially for those revelers who hopped into the fountain afterward.
