Bieber in trouble with Qantas staff

Bieber in trouble with Qantas staff

Singer Justin Bieber has been involved in an incident aboard a Melbourne bound flight this afternoon.
Qantas cabin staff had to order Bieber and one of his security guards to take their seats after they started roaming the plane while it began taxiing at Sydney airport.
The Qantas flight attendant told Bieber that his behaviour was a security risk and that he had been acting like a child and would therefore be treated like one.

PRINCE Harry reportedly lived up to his reputation as the jester of the royal family, giving an irreverent best man's speech that poked fun at his newly married older brother, as well as several other members of the royal family.
A select group of 300 guests invited to a wedding dinner hosted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace heard Harry pay tribute to Prince William and his new bride Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, before he reeled off a series of jokes at his brother's expense.
Harry, notorious for his oddball sense of humour, even targetted his 90-year-old grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, joking that Kate had dwarfed him in her three-inch heels.

Not to be outdone, Prince William and his father also made jokes about each other in their speeches.
While there was plenty of deeply felt emotion, with Prince William declaring that he was ''in love'' with his wife, the male Windsors felt free to show their fun sides in the absence of the Queen, who chose not to attend the afterparty.
Her decision to retire early was seen as tacit permission for the evening celebration to be more of an informal event.

Harry was recently quoted in the British press saying he'd have to tone down his best man's speech if his grandmother was present.
The speeches of the Prince of Wales and Prince William highlighted their close father-son bond and love of ribbing each other.
Prince Charles drew attention to his son's baldness and, in return, Prince William highlighted his father's expanding waistline.
Prince Charles said he hoped his son would look after him in old age, before joking that William would probably ''push my wheelchair off a cliff''.
Whether or not that was an indication of his son's eagerness to assume the throne was unclear.
Prince Charles hired chef Anton Mossiman to cater, with guests enjoying crab to start, followed by lamb.

Prince Harry was said to have insisted that bacon and sausage sandwiches were available later in the night. An ice cream van was also said to have been hired to provide an alternative dessert.
The partying continued in the Grand Ballroom, the biggest of the palace's 775 rooms, measuring just over 36 metres by 18 metres, until well after midnight.
Adding to the frivolity, a giant disco ball was said to have been hung in the ballroom at the suggestion of the bride's sister, party-planner Pippa Middleton, much to the chagrin of more traditional courtiers.
The 29-year-old bride, wearing her second dress of the day by the designer Sarah Burton of fashion house Alexander McQueen, looked gorgeous in the strapless white satin gazar gown with its circle skirt featuring diamant√©´ embroidered detail around the waist.
But she was upstaged by her glamorous younger sister who wore a long emerald green sleeveless dress with a jewelled embellishment and a plunging neckline.
The end of the party was announced with about 20 seconds of fireworks, greeted by loud cheers and shouts from inside the palace walls.
The newlyweds then retired to one of the suites in the palace to spend their first night as a married couple.
Their guests filtered out slowly through the side gates of Buckingham Palace between 11pm and 3am. Most of the departing guests got into cars and taxis that picked them up from inside the palace walls. Some couples were seen kissing on the back seat as they left. Others shielded their faces.
Harry, true to form, and presumably after having eaten several bacon and sausage sandwiches, was among the last to leave, taking his seat in a minibus about 3am, minus his bow tie. He was accompanied by a dozen fellow party-goers thought to have included Kate Middleton's brother James.
Harry's onetime girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, was seen leaving in a car with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
A small group who left on foot, walking down Buckingham Palace Road to Victoria Station, said they'd had a ''great evening''.
The singer Ellie Goulding, best known for her version of Elton John's Your Song, was among those who performed at the event. Joss Stone, the singer from Devon, was also among the guests.

Royal newlyweds spring honeymoon surprise

LONDON — Prince William and his new bride sprang a surprise, announcing they would not leave immediately on honeymoon and the prince will return to his day job as a helicopter pilot next week.
A statement from St James's Palace on Saturday said William and Kate would spend the weekend in Britain following their wedding and have a honeymoon abroad in the future but it "will not be disclosed in advance".
The prince "will return to work as a search and rescue pilot next week", it added.
The announcement appeared to be a way of throwing the media off their trail amid fears that photographers would pursue the couple wherever they chose to spend their honeymoon.
The prince is known to enjoy outwitting the media, whom he still holds responsible for the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997 as she was being pursued by photographers.
The prince's office stressed that the couple "have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon".
The royal family is thought to be prepared to take legal action to prevent any media outlet attempting to disrupt the trip.
So after being the focus of the world on Friday, watched by an estimated global television audience of two billion, William will return to the rural tranquility of his Royal Air Force (RAF) base in Anglesey, northwest Wales.
After a night of partying, the couple departed from Buckingham Palace on Saturday by helicopter.
The Duchess of Cambridge, as Kate is now officially known, wore a belted short blue dress, with a cropped black jacket and black wedge heels, while the prince was dressed in an open-necked white shirt, dark blazer and beige chinos.
The smiling couple held hands as they strolled through the palace grounds, then shook hands with royal staff before leaving.
The pageantry of their wedding service had given way to a night of dinner and dancing for the royal couple and 300 guests, who partied until 3:00 am.
The new duchess said Friday the couple had had a "great day" and expressed relief that the forecast rain never came.
Speculation about their secret honeymoon destination has focused on Africa, as William proposed to Kate in Kenya last year.
Jordan has also been touted as a possibility and would have nostalgic appeal for Kate as her family lived in the kingdom for two years when she was a child.
But given the current upheaval in the Middle East, it might be considered a compromised choice.
A secluded Caribbean island would allow the couple to escape the prying eyes of the media.
Bequia and Necker Island have the benefit of being easily secured, and Kate's wealthy entrepreneur parents are frequent visitors to the ultra-exclusive Mustique.
Lizard Island, off the coast of Queensland, Australia, has also emerged as a contender.
Amid estimations that the wedding was watched by roughly a third of the world's population, the BBC said almost 25 million people saw it live in Britain alone, with nearly 35 million catching some of their coverage throughout the day.
More details emerged in the press of the ceremony.
With the help of lipreaders, media reported that as Kate walked up the aisle William's best man and brother, Prince Harry, turned to him at the altar and said: "Wait till you see the dress".
The ivory satin and lace wedding gown by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, featuring a hand-embroidered veil and lace sleeves, received unanimous praise from media and fashion experts.
The colourful party in Buckingham Palace was revealed in full detail in Sunday's newspapers, which described a night of heart-felt speeches and raucous dancing topped off with bacon sandwiches served in the early hours.
Harry, organiser in chief of the festivities, kicked off proceedings with a highly entertaining speech, telling guests assembled to eat in the palace Ballroom that William was the perfect brother: "What a dude."
William was reported to have declared that his new wife was "my rock" during his speech -- and also joked that he was pleased his father "could still fit into his Royal Navy uniform."
After a magnificent dinner, the younger generation partied into the early hours in the palace Throne Room drinking champagne and cocktails to music played by pop starlet Ellie Goulding and a DJ.
The party then continued for several hours at the nearby Goring hotel, where the Middleton family had stayed for the wedding.

Justin Bieber and Mark Wahlberg To Star In Movie Together

I don’t think any younger Beliebers were even born yet when Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch exploded on the rap scene in 1991, but former new kid on the block-turned-rapper-turned-actor Mark Wahlberg is set to star with Justin Bieber in a new film, according to the latest from Bop and TigerBeat.
It doesn’t take much for a rumor about the Biebster to get started, but Paramount Pictures has confirmed that this news is actually solid. There isn’t a whole lot of info about the film at this time, but it’s going to focus on street basketball and Wahlberg is going to be cast as a “reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment.” I’m guessing that means Justin is going to be a troubled inner-city kid who discovers basketball is the road to peace and self-improvement. Hey! I’m not knocking it, but it’s a formula that’s been used numerous times. It still has potential to be good.
Wahlberg has also said that neither he nor Justin will be doing any singing or dancing in the film, but that doesn’t mean the Biebster won’t be cranking out something for the soundtrack. Maybe Mark will even dust off his rap roots for a Justin/Marky Mark duet.

Justin Bieber under attack from flying eggs in Concert

Justin Bieber has come under attack, from flying eggs.

Justin was performing at Sydney’s Acer Arena on Friday night, when six of eggs were launched from the crowd. It would seem though that thousands of die-hard screaming fans were not enough to deter the egg-thrower.

A helper quickly cleaned up the mess from flying eggs before the show went on.

Eggs were thrown from the crowd.

Fortunately those flying eggs didn’t land on his face.
Who did this? :(

Royal couple fly out after sumptuous wedding

(Reuters) - Prince William and his new wife flew out of Buckingham Palace on Saturday after tying the knot in a dazzling display blending centuries-old royal tradition with the private moments of any young couple.

Following a late-night party for friends and family, the couple were expected to enjoy a honeymoon although their destination is unknown. A royal spokesman said they left the palace by helicopter on Saturday morning.

The prince and Kate Middleton, his 29-year-old girlfriend of nearly a decade, married in London's Westminster Abbey on Friday in a ceremony that captivated the world.

A million cheering people tried to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds as they rode from the abbey to Queen Elizabeth's Buckingham Palace in an open-topped carriage. One newspaper estimated the worldwide television audience at 3 billion.

Commentators praised the royal family for striking a balance between choreographed pomp and ceremony -- military bands in black bearskin hats and household cavalrymen in shining breastplates -- and personal spontaneity.

"The British still know how to combine pageantry, solemnity, romance (and wild hats) better than anyone else in the world," wrote Sarah Lyall in the International Herald Tribune newspaper.

William, 28, drove his bride the short journey from Buckingham Palace to St James's Palace in his father's open-top Aston Martin with the license plate "JU5T WED." Their kisses on the palace's balcony carpeted newspaper front pages on Saturday.

"It marks a sea change for our country," wrote Geordie Greig in London's Evening Standard newspaper. The union of William and Middleton was "a much-needed injection of refreshment for the royal family."

Left-leaning commentators were less gushing but the overall tone was still overwhelmingly positive.

"There's Kate in the car, beginning her waving career with a tentative, strangely angled motion," wrote Zoe Williams of the Guardian. A headline in the Independent read: "Across the nation they rallied to the occasion -- even some republicans joined in"

British media were also awash with pictures of Middleton's sister and maid of honor Pippa in a slinky dress. "Is Pippa the most eligible woman in the world?" asked the Daily Telegraph.


Like other details of the wedding, including the designer of Middleton's dress, the honeymoon venue is a secret.

Suggestions have included the Seychelles, Kenya, Mustique, an island on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, the Greek island of Corfu and the Scilly Isles off England's southwest coast.

Bookmaker Paddy Power has Mustique as the favorite followed by Jordan, the Seychelles and Australia.

The intense speculation over the couple's every move underlines the pressure they will face as the future British king and queen living in the full glare of the media spotlight.

Uncomfortable parallels have been drawn between Middleton and William's hugely popular mother Princess Diana, who was hounded by paparazzi right up to her death in a Paris car crash in 1997 aged just 36.

Her death, and divorce from heir to the throne Prince Charles the year before, marked a low point for the royal family, which has also been embroiled in scandal and is seen by many as being out of touch with the British public, particularly during austere economic times.

But Middleton's background -- she is the first commoner to marry a prince close to the British throne in over 350 years -- and William's personable style have helped reverse the monarchy's rating in recent opinion polls, at least for now.

Not that the wedding was universally acclaimed.

"The royal family have too many rights in a country where other people are having their state rights withdrawn. We are funding a wedding of two people I've never met and I don't care about at all," said London charity worker Jessamy Barker, 29.

Middleton has been given the title Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, after the queen made her grandson William the Duke of Cambridge to mark the marriage.

Justin Bieber compared to Tupac? Has Mark Wahlberg gone mad?

Last year Mark Wahlberg said something that apparently slipped by almost everyone. He compared Justin Bieber to Tupac. As crazy as that sounds Whalberg did say it and it still has a lot of people confused.

Back in August of last year Walhberg had this to say about Justin Bieber:

"The world needs Justin Bieber.....Justin Bieber is like the white Tupac. Compared to a lot of people."

We tried to find some information about this quote to try to put it in perspective and hopefully find that Wahlberg was kidding, but we were unable to. Apparently he was serious.

It doesn't really have to be said, but Bieber is no Tupac and he never will be. Case closed!

In other Bieber and Wahlberg news;

The two are going to be making a movie together. Wahlberg wouldn't say what they movie is going to be about. He confirmed that they pitched the movie to Paramount and that it was accepted. He wouldn't go into too much detail other than to say it will be a drama.

Justin Bieber compared to Tupac and now Justin Bieber in serious movies. What is happening to American culture?

William and Kate fly off by helicopter for a dream honeymoon

Newly-weds William and Kate flew off on their honeymoon this morning - although the destination remains a mystery.
After spending their first night as a married couple together at Buckingham Palace, they left in a helicopter this morning.
Following their very public wedding yesterday, the Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, want privacy on their honeymoon.

Kenya is thought to be the most likely destination as a punter tried to put £5,000 on William and Kate heading back to the country where he proposed last year.
But the Caribbean, Australia, Jordan and Scotland are among the destinations that William and Kate jetting out to.
The couple spent last night partying at the Palace with their close family and friends in celebration of their wedding.
At the black-tie do, which started with dinner in the palace's lavish ballroom and ended with dancing into the small hours, Prince Harry gave his best man's speech.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as the couple are now known after the Queen bestowed the title on her grandson, are expected to travel abroad for their honeymoon sometime in the next two weeks.

Even Kate Middleton didn't know where she was going on their honeymoon.
Bookmakers had this morning made Kenya the 3-1 joint favourite after a punter had tried to place a £5,000 stake.
But they may continue their wedding theme of championing the UK and spend part of their break in Scotland, where both the Queen and the Prince of Wales have private homes they could use.
Bookies are also offering 3-1 odds on William and Kate heading north of the border.
The Duke is known to have a deep affection for Africa, and would be on safe romantic territory if he chose to take his wife to Kenya, where he proposed to her last year.
Jordan, with its plethora of ancient sites, has also been touted as a possibility for the couple's honeymoon.
The Middle Eastern country would no doubt have nostalgic appeal for Kate as her family spent two years there when she was a child. However its proximity to hotspots such as Syria could count against the country.
If they are keen to escape the prying eyes of the media, a secluded Caribbean island might be a safe choice.
Bequia and Necker Island all have the benefit of being easily secured, as does the ultra-exclusive Mustique, where Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton are frequent visitors.
Lizard Island, off the coast of Queensland, Australia, has also emerged as a contender.
However, with William resuming his pilot duties in two weeks, the significant jetlag likely from such a far-flung trip could rule it out.
They may also be tempted by Chile, as they both spent time in the South American country during their gap years before university.
Thirty years ago, William's parents the Prince and Princess of Wales spent the first stage of their honeymoon in Romsey in Hampshire, where they stayed at Broadlands, the family home of the Mountbattens.
The second part of their holiday was spent on board the royal yacht Britannia. They boarded at the Rock of Gibraltar before cruising to Algeria, Tunisia, Sicily, the Greek islands and Egypt.
Finally, they went to Scotland to spend time with the Royal Family in Balmoral.
Honeymoon destination odds
3/1 Kenya; 3/1 Scotland; 7/2 Jordan; 11/2 Cornwall, 6/1 South Africa,7/1 Caribbean, 10/1 Mustique; 10/1 Tanzania, 20/1 Seychelles, 20/1 Saint Tropez, 25/1 Australia, 25/1 Monaco, 25/1 Maldives, 33/1 Wales (all odds from William Hill)

Royal couple leave by helicopter from Buckingham Palace

The royal newly-weds have left Buckingham Palace by helicopter, following a day and night of marriage celebrations.
The duke and duchess left on Saturday for an undisclosed location.
Last night they celebrated their marriage with dinner and dancing at Buckingham Palace, along with about 300 friends and family.
The couple have said they want the world's media to respect their privacy during their honeymoon period.

Hems and haws at royal wedding

Kate-Will.jpgFinally! The Gown and other guests to the British Royal wedding dissected 

It's Sarah Burton!
Just in time for Catherin
e Middleton to step out of Queen Elizabeth's Rolls Royce, her best kept secret was out - the designer of her wedding dress. It was Sarah Burton who recently took over the reins of British design house Alexander McQueen. She was tipped to be one of the most favoured designers and was responsible for the Grace Kellyesque lace and silk creation. While classic and demure, it was a bit of let-down after all the hype and secrecy.
While fashion watchers expected the gown to be fluid and flowing, in keeping with Kate's personal style, the now Duchess of Cambridge went for flounce with a pleated trail. Keeping her shoulders covered demurely with lace, which extended to the bodice and then appeared on the base of the dress. Tiny silk buttons clasped the sleeves at the wrist. The soft veil was short and pinned in place with the 1936 Cartier Halo tiara, which Queen Elizabeth received as gift from her mother on her 18th birthday. The matching diamond earrings were a gift from her parents and held at the centre the acorn motif from their newly acquired coat of arms. In keeping with British royal tradition, her wedding band is crafted out of rare Welsh gold.

Eager to avoid oft-repeated wedding disaster, Kate insisted on doing her own make-up and did not veer away from her tried-andtested day look - a bit of blush, coral lips and slightly smoky eyes. She did go slightly overboard with the eye-brows.

Porkie sisters
Princess Beatrice's unfortunately maverick hat played a joke on her. Call it our Indian sensibilities, but frock after frock of indistinguishable wall paint colours had us yawning. The young royals had a chance to break the parade but instead Princess Beatrice wore fawn from head to toe, while Princess Eugenia's multicoloured lace, curiously stuffed hat (feathers, flower, a Gandhitopi and a bejewelled dragonfly) was eccentrically frumpy.

Someone tell her it's a wedding
With the freedom of owning her own label, you'd think Victoria would wear something less funereal. The navy sheath may have hidden her bump, but it was far too stark for a joyous occasion. Black Louboutins and black hat, and no smile. Victoria should have stayed at home and sulked.

Sister act
Steering away from tradition, Kate's sister and the maid of honour, Philippa Middleton, also wore a white Sarah Burton gown. The cowl-neck-column was accentuated with tiny buttons down the back, cap sleeves and lace trim at the neck. And that's where the good taste ended.

Royal wedding watchers in the Queen City flocked to the regal Hotel Saskatchewan Radisson Plaza early Friday morning to watch the televised wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William."It's the next best thing to being there," said Lori Good of Regina, who recruited a group of girlfriends to attend the soldout royal wedding tea, which got underway before 3: 30 a.m.
That sentiment was echoed by many of the 200 royal watchers who filled the hotel's tea room, lounge and dining room. A sea of fancy hats and feather fascinator hair accessories flooded the main floor of the elegant downtown hotel.
Young and old alike seemed mesmerized by the fairytale-like wedding.
Three generations of the Warden family gathered at the Hotel Sask to share the royal wedding experience -82-year-old Shirley Warden of Regina, her daughter Kathryn Warden, 60, and her 24-year-old granddaughter, Alixandra Stoicheff, both of Saskatoon.
"Everybody loves a love story," said Kathryn Warden, a journalist who interviewed both Prince Philip and Prince Charles while reporting for the Calgary Herald.
"I decided it would be a nice Mother's Day gift for my mother," she said. "And it's something that my own daughter could one day tell her children about -we celebrated in the Queen City at the hotel that the queen stayed at."
The Kaminski family -Dwight and Laura, and their children Karsen, 4, Karter, 7, and Karlene, 9 -described the royal wedding tea as "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." Four-year-old Karsen was up bouncing on his bed at 2: 15 a.m.. "He was excited. This is his first wedding," his mom said.
The Queen, a.k.a. Regina standup comedian Donna Sanders, arrived at the Hotel Sask at the same time Queen Elizabeth arrived at Westminster Abbey. For more than 30 years, Sanders has been entertaining audiences across Canada and the United States with her humorous 'regal speech.'
Dressed as the Queen, Sanders greeted royal watchers Friday morning and posed for numerous photos. But when she saw Kate Middleton appear on a TV screen, her focus shifted to the royal wedding.
"I'm going to cry," Sanders said, as her eyes began to tear up. "It's very moving, very exciting."
"If this had been any other weekend, I would have been in England," said Sanders, who arrived in Regina before 4 a.m. Friday, but had to be back in Moose Jaw by 8: 15 a.m. to attend an Order of the Eastern Star conference.
Attire at the royal wedding tea ran the gamut. Hotel guests were welcome to mosey down in their Hotel Sask robe, pajamas and slippers. But the majority opted to dress up in fancy weddingappropriate dresses and suits.
Eleven-year-old Erika Hallemann of Regina wore her fancy Christmas party dress and a hat from the Government House gift shop, which she'd received for her birthday.
Marian Lozinsky of Regina borrowed a hat that was made for a friend's 75th birthday. The large straw hat was adorned with a tiara and plenty of red feathers.
Roxanne Secco of Regina sported a hat purchased at the Government House gift shop, which she bought to wear to a Victorian tea wedding shower last year.
Connie Saelhom of Regina purchased a vibrant blue feather fascinator hair accessory at a local bridal shop specifically to wear to the royal wedding tea.
Didi Mccreary of Regina wore a large, fashionable hat, which her sister, Gillian Mccreary, created for a fundraiser to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Regina Symphony Orchestra.
Jackie Schmidt chuckled when asked about her eye-catching hat. "It's my Halloween hat, and I cut the spider off," she explained.
An avid hat wearer, Susan Swedberg-Kohli of Regina was right in her element at Friday's royal wedding tea. "I love hats," she said.
With a son getting married in England in a month, Swedberg-Kohli watched with keen interest as the royal couple walked down the aisle.
"The enthusiasm with hats was so much fun to see," said Donna Newman, who wore a stylish lavender hat.
Ella Tate celebrated her ninth birthday at the tea. She even got a chance to tour the hotel's royal suite, which is where the queen stays when she's in Regina. It typically rents for $1,500 a night.
A draw was made for a dinner for six, featuring a British-based menu, in the royal suite. The lucky winner was Kim Helfrick of Regina.
As they left the royal wedding tea at about 7 a.m., nine-year-old Ella Grace Cameron and her 11year-old cousin Kelsey Bilokreli were all smiles.
"It was exciting and wonderful," Bilokreli said.
"I like that Kate went to bed as a ormal person and woke up a rincess," Cameron said.

The director and choreographer of the movie, Jon Chu leads the movie up to the days before Justin Bieber sold out Madison Square Garden in 22 minutes. There are different guest stars in the movie who perform or even inspire Justin Bieber, including Usher, Miley Cyrus, and Jaden Smith.
The movie itself is a documentary, but it is one that viewers would not regret seeing. When I went to see it in theaters, I have to admit that I wasn’t so sure about it, especially when I heard it was a documentary, but when I was watching it, my opinion on Justin Bieber actually grew fonder.  
The boy wonder went from being a regular Canadian boy to a Canadian boy who all the girls are in love with. The movie has a great lesson to it, which is to follow your dreams and believe in yourself, because if you really work at it, they can come true.
The movie is a 3D movie, and all the girls in the theaters were screaming when Bieber’s hand seemed tp run through the screen and was in arm’s length with the crowd’s.  It was, overall, movie with emotion and spirit that showed the 17 years of Justin’s life in less than 2 hours. It showed that you have to work hard to get to where you want to be in life.
I would rate this movie with 3.5 stars, because even though it was good, and had a lot of detail, it could have had a little more with more of Justin Beiber talking about how he got to be world famous and his reactions to all of it.
The people who Bieber works with in the movie seem pretty intimidating, especially his vocal coach who seemed pretty fierce, but in a good way always wanting Justin to go far. She was harsh but only because she wants to see Justin go a long way and keep him healthy. 
This movie can connect with some of those children out there that want to be something but think that they cannot do it, because no one knows they cannot do something until they actually try hard and work at it, and give it all they have. “Believing is seeing, but seeing is believing.”
In this film, viewers can tell how much Bieber is committed to his jobs and his fans and how he hates to let them down.  He is an inspiration and inspires all of his fans to follow their dreams. He is one to really know that dreams can come true.

9.32pm The fashion verdict on the bride's frock from The Guardian:
Kate looks every bit the princess, but nothing at all like Princess Diana...  With this dress, Kate has redrawn the order of princess succession. She has stepped out of Diana's shadow, but by making a strong visual connection to Princess Grace, made a strong statement that she intends to look every inch the princess.
9.28pm The wedding party has disappeared inside Buckingham Palace. We'll next see them in half an hour to 45 minutes for the balcony kiss.
9.25pm Lesson from the royal wedding: getting in and out of a carriage in a big white dress requires some careful manoeuvring.
9.22pm Harry's in the kids' carriage further back, but he looks like he's having a jolly time...nearly at the Palace.
9.19pm All that waving must start to hurt after a while....
9.10pm Into the open carriage and off to the palace. The newlyweds look relieved as they wave to the screaming crowds. Kate's wave is looking much more regal.

9.05pm They're heading back down the aisle, Kate and Wills are both looking pleased as punch.
Wikipedia has already updated Kate's entry to read Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge according to The Independent.
9.00pm Looks like the paperwork is done. Charles and Camilla are back in their seats, while Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall are giggling a few rows back. What are Wills, Kate, Harry and Pippa up to out the back?
8.57pm The royal family, along with pretty much the whole congregation, look thoroughly bored as they wait for Wills and Kate to return.
8.55pm Ah, some more singing. They're off signing the newly minted Duke and Duchess are off signing the register in the St Edmund Chapel.
8.52pm The Independent reports:
The Duke of Edinburgh is listening intently. The Queen looks as though she may be dozing off.
8.48pm The Press Association reports that according to a lip-reader, Will cracked a joke to his father in law when he saw him at the Abbey. "We're supposed to have just a small family affair'', he's reported to have said.
8.44pm Kate and Will have written their own prayer. Excerpt:
In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
Strengthened by our union help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen.

8.38pm For those of you who spotted Will wasn't given a ring, here's the explanation.
8.36pm More on their titles from the Daily Mail.
William also became the Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, which means Kate will become the Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus.
As well as a duchess, Miss Middleton is also technically Princess William of Wales.
According to protocol, she is not officially Princess Catherine as she was not born a princess in her own right.
More here.
8.32pm Channel 9 has switched to the NRL for the Bulldogs v Broncos game. Live coverage of the wedding continues on 7, 10, Sky, BBC, ABC, CNN, BBC World and Fox News.
8.29pm Over at The Guardian, they say Kate's dress apparently never left Buckingham Palace. It was designed and crafted there, and then transported to her hotel.
8.24pm What did he say to her? reports the words Will said when Kate met him at the altar were: "You're beautiful." Popsugar says he mouthed "you look beautiful".
8.21pm They have been pronounced man and wife, and also the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
8.18pm Kate's ring almost got stuck. Will managed to squeeze it on after a fashion. All going smoothly so far, no tears.
8.15pm Traditional vows, asking the couple if they will love, honour and keep each other in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer.
8.12pm AND WE'RE OFF. The ceremony's underway.

Overheard quote of the day: "Why would you let your sister wear that dress?"
8.09pm Prince William sees Kate and grins like the cat who got the cream. They exchanged a few words at the altar while the choir sings, helped along by Elton John in the assembly.
8.06pm Pippa Middleton looks a knock-out. Kate's dress by comparison looks fairly plain and a bit too Laura Ashely for a royal wedding. The dress doesn't match the occasion.
She's coming to the altar now. Here comes the first look.
8.03pm Kate's train appears to be about 12-15 feet long, compared to Princess Diana's monster 25-foot train.
8.02pm The dress bears an uncanny resemblance to Grace Kelly's for her marriage to Prince Ranier.
8.02pm Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton has been named as the designer of Kate's dress.
8.01pm She's arrived! Kate is one minute late according to Big Ben.

7.59pm Pippa Middleton looks more like she's off to the Oscars than a royal wedding - stunningly elegant, and sexy, white dress and no bouquet.

7.55pm Kate is en route to Westminster Abbey in a Rolls-Royce.
7.54pm Kate hasn't quite got the royal wave down-pat yet. But she is wearing a tiara.
7.51pm First glimpse of Kate! It looks like a white dress with lace sleeves. She appears to be carrying a quite small bouquet and she is wearing a veil.
7.49pm Maid of honour Pippa Middleton and the flowergirls, along with the pageboys, are on their way. Interestingly, Pippa looks like she is wearing a white, while the flowergirls have on dresses that looks similar to those that Princess Diana's attendants wore.
7.46pm Prince Charles and Camilla are greeting guests inside the church.
7.45pm The bell ringers sound like they're getting even more into the spirit of things. Can guests, some of whom have been stuck in their seats for an hour and a half, hear one another?
7.43pm A white tent has been erected at The Goring hotel to cover Kate when she leaves for the church. The idea reportedly is so we won't be able to catch a glimpse of her dress until she arrives at Westminster.
7.42pm Here comes the Queen! Ma'am has gone for lemon yellow.
7.41pm Princess Eugenie has opted for a bizarre wide-hipped floral look. The top half looks like a leftover from the set of The Tudors.
7.37pm  The younger royals seem to be traveling in a pack- Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn; Viscount and Viscountess Linley; Zara Phillips and her fiance Mike Tindall. Charmingly appropriate get-ups all around.
7.35pm En route: Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
7.34pm Will the British hat business go into rapid decline after the wedding? Westminster Abbey looks like it has been filled with every possible feather, fascinator, and wide-brimmed number available.

7.32pm Kate's mother Carole Middleton and her brother James have arrived.

7.22pm The much-touted trees in the Abbey look great in the sweeping camera shots, but up close, the decorations look pretty standard. All done for the effect of TV?
7.21pm William and Harry are walking the red carpet to the altar. Next to arrive, the Middletons.
7.17pm William looks petrified. Harry looks like he’s having a jolly old time waving to the crowds.

7.11pm The bridegroom Prince William has just left Clarence House with his brother Prince Harry. So far no sign of either of them opening the door for a quick spew. 7.08pm Breaking news: Victoria Beckham has cracked a smile.
7.03pm British PM David Cameron and his clothes-horse wife Samantha Cameron arrive to cheers from the crowd. Controversially, Sam-Cam as she has become known, is not wearing a hat – cue the collective sharp intake of breath.

6.34pm Posh is wearing a black get-up of her design. 6.18pm Phwoar! David and Victoria Beckham are making their way inside the Abbey. Becks looks like he was born in a morning suit - his wife is wearing a sour expression and what looks like she has a strange black bell boy's cap with a massive spike glued to her forehead.

6.14pm Clarence House is promising that details about Kate’s dress will be revealed first on their Twitter stream. Stay tuned.
6.07pm By far the best spectacle of the royal wedding thus far is watching the army of TV hosts in London, all done up in their Sunday best, padding out the hours of air that have to be filled until something actually happens.
6.05pm The guests arriving at the Abbey now will have to wait around for TWO HOURS before the service. And many of the chairs have no cushions. There’ll be some royally numb butts by the end of the service.
6.03pm Channel 7 reporting on some of the security threats: al-Qaeda, Irish republicans, anti-monarchists and British anarchists.

5.56pm The view inside Westminster Abbey, posted on Twitter by the BBC:

5.45pm London’s Telegraph gives a handy low-down on the background to the titles that Will and Kate were given by the Queen.
5.42pm Hot style tip on Channel 7! Ladies going to a royal wedding should avoid wide-brimmed hats, because there are many times when you will be exchanging kisses and a big hat gets in the way.

5.37pm Pizzas, condoms, knitted versions of the royal couple - nothing comes to close to British plumber Barmy Baz Franks' efforts to celebrate the (nearly) royal couple. The 29-year-old has had Kate and Wills tattooed on his teeth. Franks paid a dentist $1,500 to have their faces temporarily inked Kate and Wills on his teeth.

Never fear, the “gnasher tats” (that took six hours to complete) are temporary and should wear off in about three months.
5.32pm The #RoyalWedding stream on Twitter is roaring now. You can try this search for a selection of tweets with people's photos, ranging from pics from the streets of London to people in their homes getting their parties going.
Meanwhile, Channel Seven just showed a clip of Chris Bath on top of an open-top bus driving through London trying a royal wave.
5.23pm This little bit of royal family title trivia just in from the BBC.
The last Duke of Cambridge, like Prince William, married a commoner for love. Prince George, known as the 2nd Duke of Cambridge, was born in 1819. He was a grandson of George III and the only son of Prince Adolphus Frederick, the 1st Duke of Cambridge.
Maybe the title is something of an in-joke at the House of Windsor?
You can see the BBC coverage here.
5.04pm The Queen will give Kate and Wills the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
4.54pm Gawkers, rejoice!
Kate and Wills will hitch a ride back to Buckingham Palace in an open carriage the Associated Press reports.
The decision is a boon for the tens of thousands of people who have lined London’s streets to catch a glimpse of the royal lovebirds.
For a little bit of history, the 1902 landau was the same carriage used by Wills parents 30 years ago.
4.32pm What do Kate Middleton, Megan Fox, Charlize Theron and Beyonce have in common?
Australian blokes think Kate is a bit of alright.
FHM editor Guy Mosel the royal-in-waiting looked to set be a surpsie inclusion in this year’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.
Well, she is the first future queen who has been photographed in her bra and knickers.
Another bloke who charmed by Kate is former News of the World editor and now -CNN host Piers Morgan.
In an interview with the Huffington Post he explained why not only Brits, but the world, have been won over by this girl.
"She's come from a very normal, middle class, working class family who have had to work all their lives for their own money, built their own businesses, so there's nothing special about Kate Middleton in terms of her pedigree or her breeding, if you'd like, which is very much symbolic of the British royal class system…. So, in that sense, she's a bit of an outsider, but that may well be why William has chosen her.”
4.18pm With only hours until Kate finds herself with a reported two and a half billion pairs of eyes on her, chances are right now she’s doing her own eye-liner, or so Napoloeon Perdis says.
The Sydney boy turned makeup guru is the latest person to report Kate has insisted on doing her own makeup. Quelle horreur!
“Does Kate not realise that a bazillion pair of eyes will be scrutinising her every move? Does she not know the pore-maximising capabilities of HDTV? Or that every bride needs careful contouring, no matter how genetically blessed she may be?” he wrote in the Huffington Post.
Got that Kate? It's trowel time.

3.44pm There are fears rain may fall when the royal couple appear for their post wedding kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, despite a forecast temperature of up to 20C.
Forecaster Billy Payne told PA: "There's a reasonable chance of a few heavy showers around at that time (about 1.25pm London time, or 10.25pm AEST).
He said there was also a chance rain could fall at the time the bride steps from the limousine on her father's arm to enter the abbey.

3.34pm's royal wedding aficionado, romance and statistics correspondent Will Temple writes that Prince William has more chance of enjoying a fairytale ending with his wedding than his parents ever did.
Data from UK statistician shows the divorce rate was rising when Prince Charles married Diana, but is currently falling as their son ties the knot.

3.09pm Some of the UK newspapers are getting all misty-eyed and romantic on the eve of the wedding. You can read a wrap of the doting media here.
The Sun appeared to speak for the late Princess Diana with their headline, 'Mum would be so proud'.
The staunchly republican Guardian eased off for the day, but still urged people against "demented princess worship."
2.40pm A life-size cutout of Prince William and Catherine Middleton standing in the foyer of the Windsor Hotel may have been the most photographed attraction in Melbourne this week. An estimated 5000 people have had their photo taken with the cardboard pair since they arrived a month ago. Windsor Hotel CEO David Perry says:
It just brings a smile to everyone's face. I think the world is so thankful after such natural disasters and terrible things going on in the world this year that there's a good news story.

2.09pm German news website Der Spiegel has published an angry and frustrated editorial blasting the royal wedding as a joke and " a hopelessly overhyped celebration of an absurdly undemocratic system".
Der Spiegel's London correspondent tears into the Kingdom and expresses sympathy for Kate Middleton.

Crowd Celebrates The Royal Marriage

Royal wedding: Prince William and Kate Middleton are married

Royal wedding ceremony
Prince William andKate Middleton have been declared man and wife by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
After the choir sang a specially composed anthem by Welsh composer James Rutter, taken from the Psalms, and the hymn "Guide me, O Thy Great Redeemer," translated from Welsh, Kate was escorted down the aisle by her father, Michael Middleton. Her sister and maid of honor Pippa carried her train.
 Dean of Westminster Dr. John Hall gave the introduction to the ceremony, which was conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan William.
"If any man can show any just cause why they may not lawfully be joined together let him now speak or else hereafter forever hold his peace," the archbishop recited.
The bride smiled when, as the archbishop recited the vows for the couple, groom William Arthur Philip Louis was asked to "keep her."
The prince responded to the archbishop with the simple phrase "I will," with a slight frog in his throat.
When Catherine, as she was referred to in the ceremony, agreed to do the same, the crowd outside let out a roar audible from inside the Abbey.
Westminster Abbey Will placed the wedding band on Kate's finger, but it snagged on her knuckle as he pushed it on. Afterward, the couple kneeled before the altar and the  archbishop said a prayer, wrapping their hands with a sash.
"What God has joined together let no man set asunder," he said. "I pronounce that they be man and wife together in the name of the father, the son and the holy ghost," and the crowd let out another roar.
Another hymn followed the prayers, then Kate's brother, James Middleton, recited the lesson by St. Paul to the Romans that called on the crowd to present their bodies as a living sacrifice to God.
"Let love be genuine ... extend hospitality and friendship. ... Live in harmony with one another.... associate with the lonely... ...take thought for what is noble in the sight of all... if it is possible so far as it depends on you live peaceably," he said.
During a sermon by the Bishop of London, the couple whispered to each other.

"Marriage should transform as husband and wife make one other their work of art. It is possible to transform so long as we don't harm our ambitions to reform our partners. There must be no coercion if the spirit is to flow. Each must give the other space and freedom," the bishop said, quoting Chaucer as saying "when mastery cometh, the god of love anon beateth his wings and farewell he is gone."
"I pray that all of us present and the many millions watching this ceremony and sharing in your joy today will do everything in our power to support and uphold you in your new life. And I pray that God will bless you in the way of life that you have chosen," the bishop added.
Choir and congregation sang a national favorite, the hymn Jerusalem, words by English 19th century poet William Blake and music arranged by English 20th century composer Edward Elgar.
Members of the congregation were also on their feet for the national anthem. The royal couple and witnesses went to the Chapel of St. Edward -- site of the Shrine of St. Edward the Confessor -- to sign three registers. Two registers are part of the abbey collection; the third is part of Chapel Royal register.
The newlyweds emerged from the door of Westminster Abbey, holding hands and smiling, as onlookers waved, cheered and captured the moment in photographs.
William preceded Kate, and Kate preceded her very long train, into the open-air, horse-drawn carriage that awaited them outside the Abbey. As the carriage took off with dozens of men on black horses in its wake, the Duchess of Cambridge smiled ear to ear while the white-gloved Duke of Cambridge joined her in waving to the approving crowd.
