Prince William and his new bride Kate kissed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace following their wedding Friday to the cheers of hundreds of thousands of wellwishers massed below.



They couple embraced after William turned to Kate and asked: "Shall we kiss?".



The balcony kiss, first performed at a British royal wedding by William's late mother Diana and Prince Charles in 1981, has become a tradition of royal weddings.


The kiss was followed by a ceremonial flypast of World War II-era aircraft and modern fighter jets.



Soon, the couple shared one more short kiss before retreating into the palace.
