Prince William and Catherine Middleton Make History With Two Kisses

Prince William and Catherine Middleton shared not one, but two kisses on the Buckingham Palace Balcony two hours after exchanging their vows.

Millions of people gathered to watch the royal kiss and as Kate walked out on the balcony you could see her mouth “wow” to the Prince. It’s almost as if she didn’t realize what a big deal their marriage was until that very moment. It was a cute and humbling moment.

Their first kiss was very brief and a couple minutes later they shared a second, more affectionate one. Kate was smiling ear-to-ear non-stop, it was a really cute moment. She was even smiling during the kiss.

Seconds later they were joined by family members on the balcony, including the Queen who told BBC the ceremony was “amazing.”

William’s parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana shared their first kiss as a married couple in 1981 on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as a cheering crowd looked on. But their kiss lacked the emotion that Will and Kate’s had.

On July 23, 1986, Prince Edward married Sarah Ferguson also kissed on the balcony, but theirs was a little scandalous. “Get a room” was the best way to describe that one.

Over 2 billion people across the globe watched the royal wedding today. Millions of people gathered outside Buckingham Palace, as well as a few protestors. There were a few crazies in bridal gowns with signs for Will that read, “Will it’s not too late.”

Kate's full title will be Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, or Princess William of Wales - she will not be referred to as Princess Catherine.

What did you think of the royal kiss? Was it affectionate, boring or just right?
