Prince William and Prince Catherine's First Royal Kiss

Royal newlyweds Prince William and Catherine Middleton thrilled fans by kissing twice on the balcony of Buckingham Palace following their wedding on Friday.

The couple - who are now officially the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - appeared on the terrace alongside Queen Elizabeth II and relatives of the bride and groom 90 minutes after their nuptials at London's Westminster Abbey.

As hundreds of thousands of flag-waving well-wishers converged outside the palace gates and on The Mall below, the prince sparked a deafening cheer as he leaned in and kissed his blushing bride on the lips. Two minutes later, the couple kissed again.
