LONDON (KABC) -- Prince William and Kate Middleton were pronounced husband and wife Friday at Westminster Abbey as 1 million people packed the streets and an estimated 2 billion more watched across the globe.

Middleton emerged from a Rolls-Royce in a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, prompting swoons of admiration from onlookers. The dress had lacy shoulders and long sleeves with a plunging, sweetheart neckline. She also wore an intricate, hand-embroidered veil topped with a Cartier tiara, on loan from Queen Elizabeth II.

William, second-in-line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles, wore the scarlet tunic of an Irish Guards officer, reinforcing his new image as a dedicated military man.
As Middleton made her way into Westminster Abbey, William had his back to her, making sure he would be surprised. Prince Harry, to the right of William, kept his brother posted by taking peeks down the aisle.

Middleton walked down the aisle of the abbey with her father, Michael Middleton, and joined William at the altar, at which time he told her, "You look beautiful." Holding each other's hands and gazing into one another's eyes, the two said their vows without stumbling. William, 28, slipped a wedding band made of Welsh gold on the finger of the 29-year-old Middleton.

Following the pronouncement by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Middleton's brother, James Middleton, gave an inspirational reading from the scripture of James.

About 1,900 guests were in attendance, including soccer star David Beckham and musician Elton John. The two are now known as the duke and duchess of Cambridge - the royal titles serve as the couple's first royal wedding gift, which came from the queen.

The new couple signed the wedding registry and paid their respects to the queen, and then they were driven to Buckingham Palace in an open-topped State Landau, a carriage built in 1902, escorted by four white horses and followed by scarlet-clad troops on horseback.
