Buckingham Palace has released the official wedding photos from Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials yesterday and in them we see tradition but also a hint of a modern monarchy with a sense of humor.
Check out the second photo with pageboy Tom Pettifer leaning over the bride's head as if he were posing for a school photo!
The pix were shot by the couple's official wedding photographer Hugo Brunand in the Buckingham Palace throne room.

The palace confirmed Saturday the couple won't be jetting off on their honeymoon anytime soon. The royal wedding site reported Prince William -- now Duke William -- will be back at work as a search and rescue pilot next week:
- "The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance. The Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon."
Question ... are you glad the royal wedding is over or are you looking forward to new William and Kate news?
