Celebs : World Watching As The Waiting Finally Ends.

The whole world will be watching today as Prince William marries Kate Middleton in a ceremony combining pomp and romance.

Months of preparations will come to fruition when the couple say their vows in Westminster Abbey in front of 1,900 guests - and a global TV audience of two billion.

Forecasts of showers over central London this morning failed to dampen the mounting excitement about the Royal Wedding.
Scores of well-wishers from all over the world have been camped outside the abbey for days to get the best view of the couple and their guests as they arrive and depart.
Miss Middleton, 29, will walk up the aisle on her father's arm as a commoner. Just over an hour later she will leave as an HRH, a Princess and a future Queen
Invited guests include Sir Elton John, Guy Ritchie, David and Victoria Beckham and Prime Minister David Cameron.
A host of politicians, clergy, military chiefs, ambassadors and more than 45 foreign royals will begin filling the abbey from 8.15am.
William's grandparents the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, his father Prince Charles and stepmother the Duchess of Cornwall will be joined by some 40 members of the British royal family, as well as close friends of the couple.
William, 28, and his brother Prince Harry, 26, who is his best man, will arrive at the historic 1,000-year-old church at 10.15am
The groom, an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, will be dressed in red, wearing the famous scarlet tunic of an Irish Guards officer, rather than an Air Force uniform.
William faces a nailbiting 45-minute wait until his bride's arrival, part of which he will spend in private with Harry in the tiny side Chapel of St Edmund.
Kate spent her last night as a single woman with her parents, Michael and Carole, sister Pippa and brother James at the exclusive Goring hotel in Belgravia, a short distance from Buckingham Palace.
William spent the evening at Clarence House with his family and gave royal enthusiasts on The Mall a treat as he went on an unplanned walkabout, admitting his "nerves" to the crowds.
The world will hope to get the first glimpse of Kate's dress, which has been kept a closely-guarded secret, when she leaves for the abbey exactly nine minutes before the service starts at 11am.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to line the mile-and-a-half route to Westminster Abbey, along The Mall, Whitehall and Parliament Square.
Some 5,000 police officers are on duty as part of Britain's biggest security operation this century, amid continuing fears about the threat of terrorism and disruptive demonstrations.
Kate is following in the footsteps of Diana, Princess of Wales, and will not promise to "obey" her new husband in her vows but instead to "love, comfort, honour and keep" him.
With William choosing not to wear a wedding ring, only he will say "With this ring I thee wed", as he places the simple, band fashioned from a nugget of Welsh gold on his bride's finger.
The ceremony will be performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, with the Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev Dr John Hall, is conducting the service.
The guest list has provoked controversy, with the Foreign Office announcing the last-minute withdrawal of the Syrian ambassador's invitation yesterday in the wake of the country's bloody crackdown on protesters.
Further questions have been raised about why former Labour prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were not invited while Tory counterparts Sir John Major and Baroness Thatcher were.
After the ceremony, William and Kate will ride back to Buckingham Palace in the open-top 1902 State Landau - although if it rains, the newly-weds will use the Glass Coach.
At 1.25pm, the bride and groom will step out onto the Palace's famous balcony, joined by the Queen and their families to watch a flypast by a Lancaster, a Spitfire and a Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Two Tornado and Two Typhoon jets.
Then, the moment the world will be waiting for - the long-awaited kiss, the first time William and Kate have ever done so in public.
There will be two receptions at the palace, one hosted by the Queen in the afternoon for 650 guests, followed by the Prince of Wales's more intimate black-tie gathering of 300 close family and friends in the evening
The Royal Wedding is the culmination of a romance that began more than eight years ago when William and Kate met as students at St Andrews University in Fife, Scotland.
Their story has captured the hearts of people across the planet and thousands of foreign journalists, photographers and TV crews have descended on London to cover the event.
Millions of British workers are enjoying an extra public holiday to celebrate and many will attend one of the 5,500 street parties being organised across the country, including one in Downing Street. Source SKYNEWS
