Prince Harry William of Wales, grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and son of Prince Charles, and Catherine "Kate" Middleton Exchange Vows at Royal Spectacular Wedding

Prince William and Kate Middleton, holding each other's hands and gazing into one another's eyes, exchanged wedding vows, turning the commoner bride into royalty and thrilling royal watchers around the world.

William, 28, put a wedding band made of Welsh gold on the finger of the 29-year-old Middleton in Westminster Abbey.

Middleton appeared to marvel in the majesty of the thousand year old Abbey looking up and smiling as she and William sang along with their 1,900 guests. Nearly 400 of the guests are close family and friends.

Earlier, with her face still veiled, Kate Middleton held onto her father and grinned as she walked down the aisle of the ornate cathedral to wed Prince William, the heir to the British throne. Prince William told Middleton, "You look beautiful" when she arrived at the altar of the church. They exchanged smiles and William leaned over and winked at his father-in-law, Michael Middleton.

Watch the Royal Wedding

The wedding, watched by over 2 billion people worldwide, delighted the people of Britain. Crowds of at least 600,000 lined the streets to watch the wedding, which is a national holiday.
