Royal wedding: So excited as they set off to start their new life

30 APRIL 2011

Still on a high after the incredible excitement of their unforgettable day, the newly created Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left Buckingham Palace.

Hands tightly clasped, the newlyweds made their way across the Palace's manicured lawn, where a helicopter was waiting to whisk them off to a secret location.

It had been expected that they'd leave immediately for their honeymoon but Clarence House said that Prince William planned to return to duty as a Search and Rescue pilot next week.




The honeymoon, which will be somewhere overseas, is being postponed for the time being. 

Kate, who looked remarkably fresh-faced despite staying up partying late into the night, was wearing a pretty summer frock in lavender.

Presumably, the ensemble had been bought on a last minute shopping spree before the wedding when she bought lots of bikinis, pointing to a sunny destination when they do get away. 



It's been suggested that the groom had Jordan in mind.

Although, the Caribbean island of Mustique, one of the Middleton family's favourite holiday spots or Africa, where he proposed are also possibilities.
