Guests included Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince George of Cambridge, Michael and Carole Middleton, Pippa Middleton, and James Middleton.
Before the ceremony, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge walked to the church with their son, Prince George, holding Prince William’s hand while Kate pushed Princess Charlotte’s pram.
