    Prince William and Catherine Middleton Tie the Knot in Grand Royal Wedding on April 29, 2011

    On April 29, 2011, Prince William of Wales married Catherine Middleton in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London, England. The wedding was watched by an estimated global audience of two billion people.

    Prince William, the second in line to the British throne, met Middleton while they were both students at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. The couple had dated for nearly a decade before their engagement was announced in November 2010.

    The wedding was a grand affair, with a procession through London and a reception at Buckingham Palace. The bride wore a stunning ivory and white satin gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, which featured a 9-foot train. The groom wore the uniform of the Irish Guards, of which he was a serving officer.

    The event was attended by a number of international dignitaries, including members of foreign royal families and heads of state. In addition to the public spectacle, the wedding was also a display of British tradition and pageantry.

    The couple’s marriage has since been seen as a symbol of hope and stability for the British monarchy, and they have gone on to have three children together: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
