Once the royal couple arrives at Buckingham Palace at 12:30 p.m., they will pose for their official wedding photos. But those private moments between Will, Kate, their families and their bridal party will remain private. The palace staff says they "hope" to release some photographs the following morning.
At 1:25 p.m., the married couple will reappear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace with the Queen and their families for 10 minutes. We can only hope they will follow the example of William's parents and mark the occasion with a public kiss. The Royal Air Force, where Prince William serves as a search-and-rescue pilot, will perform a flyover at 1:30 p.m.
Next, Prince William and Kate will head inside Buckingham Palace to the afternoon reception hosted by the Queen. After that, husband and wife will drive to St. James Palace for some down time.
The 7 p.m. evening party is expected to be much more fun, relaxed, and most important, private. No pictures from the event are expected to be released. Speeches, including the one given by the Best Man, Prince Harry, will be delivered at this reception. This is the one moment of Prince William and Kate's day that is not planned to the second. The palace says the party will "finish when it finishes."
