Royal wedding: The kiss, the joy, the sweet words - hellomagazine.com readers share their best moments

04 MAY 2011


The moment Prince William sealed his love for the new Duchess of Cambridge – tenderly planting two kisses on his new bride – brought cheers from hundreds of thousands of spectators, and tugged on heartstrings the world over.

The touching scene was also deemed one of your favourite moments from the couple's big day – after we asked you to send in your suggestions.



Although the kiss definitely caught the imagination, there were many other special moments that struck a chord with HELLO! fans.

Rob Kemp was thrilled by "that genuine look of love and words that passed between the couple".

Who could forget the moment William told his bride "You look (beautiful), you are beautiful," at the altar.

And thanks to lip readers, the newlyweds' exchange when they embarked upon their horse-drawn carriage ride after the service was revealed.

The Duchess asked her new husband: "Are you happy?"

He replied: "It was amazing, amazing. I am so proud you are my wife."

Hellomagazine.com reader Cowgirl Warrior loved "how happy everybody was" and "how it seemed like watching a family wedding."

"The joy the royal wedding radiated," was the best part for reader Priya Shergill. "The couple looked very happy and genuinely in love."

Other favourite high points included seeing the dress for the first time, and the couple's giggly ride to Clarence House in the 'just wed' Aston Martin.
