Buckingham Palace have released the first official wedding portrait from the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
US Weekly was one of the first American publications to publish the photos, which feature a joyous looking William and Kate in front of a red backdrop inside Buckingham Palace.
The photos were taken immediately after the newlyweds (now known by their formal titles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) arrived back at the Palace after their carriage ride from Westminster Abbey. The official wedding portraits took about an hour to complete, after which time William and Kate appeared on the palace balcony for their first kiss as man and wife.
In the portrait Kate is, of course, wearing the exquisite gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, and Will is wearing a red Royal Navy Number One dress uniform. They smile happily (and surely exhausted!) at the camera. In more photos they are surrounded by members of the wedding party.
