The World’s Leading Destination celebrates in style

London, voted the “World’s Leading Destination” at 2010 World Travel Awards, had a chance to bask in the spring sunshine a crowd over one million royal well-wishers lined the procession route to cheer for Prince William and his new wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. The wedding was said to be the capital’s largest ever event as crowds joined the party in parks and squares across the capital.

A dazzling display of pomp and pageantry was on display bringing to a dramatic climax months of organisation.

The wedding was also broadcast live on big screens in various cities and towns, and street parties are also taking place across England.

Thousands of people camped out overnight along the procession route the couple took to Buckingham Palace.

But the Met Office has warned that there was a risk of heavy showers developing later on in the day in the capital.

The couple used an open-topped 1902 State Landau carriage for the procession after the service, the same used by the prince’s parents in 1981.

Buckingham Palace earlier announced the titles given to the couple by the Queen on their marriage.

Prince William will also take the titles Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, and Miss Middleton becomes Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.
