Prince William of Wales Marries Kate Middleton

More than a billion eyes were on Kate Middleton as she stepped out of the queen's 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI in front of London's Westminster Abbey on Friday wearing a wedding dress of fairy-tale princess-esque proportions — a dress that will be immortalized in fashion history.

Middleton emerged from her wedding-eve residence of the Goring Hotel around 10:55 a.m. local time. Despite a tent set up to obscure the view, the lacy, long-sleeved, deep-V-neckline gown could be glimpsed. With a lace-trimmed, gauzy veil, tiara and her hair swept half up, Middleton was the picture of princess perfection. It took some adjusting to fold the train into the car, where she was seated next to her father, Michael Middleton.

Royal wedding gawkers made the most of their positions outside Westminster Abbey this morning while Prince William and Kate Middleton exchanged vows inside, satisfied with any glimpse they could get.
