Watch the Royal Wedding

The wedding, watched by over 2 billion people worldwide, delighted the people of Britain. Crowds of at least million people lined the streets to watch the wedding, which was declared a national holiday. When the couple said their vows, the crowds let out a huge roar and popped champagne bottles.

Royal watchers enveloped in the Union Jack flag, waved and screamed outside of Buckingham Palace as orange balloons floated above them. The Band of Welsh Guards marched along the procession route in their red uniforms and black fur hats. Fans wore sparkly hats and masks of the married couple.

In addition to the official celebration at Buckingham Palace, after parties were held across England, in the streets and indoors, especially on the island of Anglesey, the royal couple's hometown. Today, the people of the UK are winding down after the biggest royal wedding in 30 years.

ABC News' Linda Albin, Michael S. James, Aaron Katersky, Gabriel O'Rorke and Jean-Nicholas Fievet contributed to this report.
