On April 29, 2011, the entire world witnessed the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Westminister Abbey in London.  The wedding was also viewed online by millions of people around the world. Much of the attention was focused on Ms.Middleton status as commoner which means she is not of a royal blood or aristocracy. She is first commoner to marry a prince in close proximity to the throne in more than 350 years.

Catherine was wearing a white bridal gown, designed by British Designer Sarah Burton and the Prince himself was in the uniform of his honorary rank of Colonel of the Irish Guards.

The Queen granted Prince William the titles of Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, and Baron Carrickfergus . It was a public holiday in Great Britain.
