On the Balcony

After the religious wedding was over, the Hereditary Grand Duke and the Hereditary Grand Duchess made their way back to the palais in a blue Daimler. A few minutes later they stepped out on the balcony to greet the cheering masses.

To the delight of the crowd (and us watching on TV), they did not kiss once or twice but three times. It seemed that they couldn't get enough of each other.

Inbetween all the kisses, they managed to squeeze in lots of waving to the crowd. I have watched every royal wedding since 1999 when the Duke and Duchess of Brabant tied the knot and I have to say that I have never seen a royal couple that waved so extensively and enthusiasticly to the crowd like Guillaume and Stephanie did. It seemed like they wanted to greet every person standing in front of the palais personally, something they actually did yesterday.

They were later joined by Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Prince Felix, Prince Louis, Princess Tessy, Princess Alexandra and Prince Sebastien.
