Prince William and Kate Middleton got married last week. Maybe you heard.

The newlyweds are not taking a honeymoon anytime soon (good for them), but luckily for us, they are planning a trip to America this summer!

Kate and William will visit California from July 8-10, though their exact itinerary is not public. Prince William has visited the U.S. privately before.

The newly-minted Duchess of Cambridge has never before visited America. The excursion will follow their visit to Canada from June 30-July 8.

Having married Prince William earlier Friday in the wedding of the millennium, Kate Middleton changed into a stunning evening gown for the royal reception.

Like Kate Middleton's wedding dress, this gown looked nothing short of perfect for a duchess, and was custom designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.

Burton said of her design experience: "Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes."

We'd say that worked pretty well in this case, wouldn't you?

Sarah Burton added that in recent weeks, she and her team "worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of strictest secrecy."

Prince William and Kate Middleton became husband and wife - and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - at London's Westminster Abbey this morning.

The royal wedding, pegged the greatest and grandest affair since Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1981 nuptials, marked a magical chapter in their fairy tale love story, which began at college and will continue throughout their lifetime.

Here's a look at Kate Middleton's wedding dress ...

The couple wed in a traditional ceremony Friday.

"I, William Arthur Philip Louis, take thee, Catherine Elizabeth, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse," he vowed. "For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, till death us do part."

With brother and best man Prince Harry, in the uniform of Captain of the Household Cavalry, by his side, William wearing the scarlet uniform of the Colonel of the Irish Guards, slipped a traditional Welsh gold wedding band on Kate's finger.

"With this ring, I thee wed," he said.

Kate Middleton made her historic wedding day entrance this morning in style.

Arriving via car with her father Michael Middleton, the royal bride stepped out and at long last debuted her beautiful wedding dress: An Alexander McQueen gown custom-designed by Sarah Burton, the label's creative director.

The stunning gown features a long veil, with lace covering up Middleton's bare arms and shoulders. Prince William's bride reportedly did her own makeup. Her hair? Half up, half down, with a white veil and white ring atop her head.

Here's Kate in her wedding dress ...

ROYALLY CUTE: Seriously, how sweet are they? It's not like there are any non-cute Prince William and Kate Middleton pictures, but this one might take the cake.

"I am very happy to have been asked to cover this historic moment that the world was waiting for. They are in their prime, brimming with happiness," Testino said.

"I have never felt so much joy as when I see them together."

Tomorrow morning, two billion people will share that joy.

Just two days to go until the wedding of the year. Nay, the century.

The celebrity gossip tabloids, like the rest of us, are riveted by the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who will tie the knot Friday a.m.

The historical day will be dissected in great detail starting with the ceremony itself. Last week, Kate admitted she's a bundle of nerves just thinking about it.

When they enter Westminster Abbey, however, William and Kate's clear heads and full hearts will help calm those fears - and block out the massive spectacle.

  • Wedding of the Year
  • Royal Wedding Fever!

Old William and Kate photos, but cute ones!

William's brother and best man, Harry, admitted that their mother would be on the boys' minds on April 29, as they stand in the location of her 1997 funeral.

"I hope she would be so very, very proud that the big day has come upon him," the 26-year-old Harry said this week. "We all thought it was never going to happen."

It's happening, all right, and THG will be here to break it down, vow by vow, Friday morning as the wedding of the millennium takes place before the world.
