The recessional march from Westminster Abbey that ended the historic wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton (make that Duchess of Cambridge) began a long day full of photo ops.

As the family gathered inside the throne room of Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II sat next to her husband, Prince Philip, for their grandson's official family portrait with his new bride. The newlyweds look genuinely delighted striking a regal pose alongside their parents, siblings and young wedding party (on the far left, 3-year-old bridal attendant Grace Van Cutsem was typically contrarian about all the pomp and circumstance). Best man Prince Harry cracks a grin next to the groom, but why was Maid of honor Pippa Middleton banished to the edge of the group?
