Look who stepped out into the sunshine at Buckingham Palace on Saturday following her royal wedding to Prince William? Kate Middleton, or should that be the Duchess of Cambridge, was all smiles as she strode the lawns outside the Palace on her first day as a wife.

After a light breakfast, the couple emerged from the garden entrance of the Queen's residence where they spent their wedding night on the ground floor Belgian Suite of the Palace. Strolling hand-in-hand, Kate looked happy and relaxed while wearing a cornflower blue chiffon £49.99 Zara dress (not Issa as it was first reported!). The floaty frock was paired with a dark cropped jacket, black waist belt, and shiny black £129.99 LK Bennett wedges. They then headed towards a helicopter along with some luggage, although not for the honeymoon. That holiday has been postponed to a later date.
