Prince William takes bride for a drive
Prince William delighted crowds of wellwishers in central London on Friday when he took his new bride Kate for a spin in an Aston Martin with the number plate JU5T WED.
The prince drove out from the Buckingham Palace gates to the surprise of many in an unexpected moment that captured the relaxed spirit of their wedding day.
The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge drove to nearby Clarence House, the home of his father Prince Charles, in an open-top Aston Martin Volante with a learner driver's L plate on the front.
The car had balloons tied to the back and bunting on the front.
The couple waved to the shocked crowds as William slowly drove up The Mall, the ceremonial processional route from Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square.
