However, many television stations aired everything from when members of both Kate and William’s finally rode to Westminster Abbey to the kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Kate wore a very beautiful wedding gown designed by Sarah Burton who is the creative director of Alexander McQueen. The dress was a white silk dress, with lace sleeves and a handmade eight foot long train. It was a tight fit bodice and had a deep v-neck.
