Prince William and his blushing bride Kate truly are modern royals.
Instead of taking yet another carriage ride after the ceremony, William and Kate jumped in a snazzy Aston Martin convertible complete with a license plate that read: “JU5T WED.”
The couple was snapped driving away from Buckingham Palace and through the Mall in London on Friday afternoon as they waved to the thousands of people who lined the streets to wish them well.
On the front of the car was a large red letter “L” which stands for “learners permit.”
As previously reported, the young lovers wed at Westminster Abbey as an estimated worldwide audience of 2 billion people watched. United at the altar at 11:11 a.m. local time, the duo exchanged vows at 11:20 a.m., after which the hunky royal slipped the ring on his bride’s finger.
After the wedding, Queen Elizabeth II hosted a private luncheon for William and Kate at Buckingham Palace for 650 guests.
William and Kate then enjoyed some alone time in one of the state rooms at St. James’s Palace, where they will change their clothes in anticipating of their next big event Friday night when Prince Charles hosts a dinner dance at Buckingham Palace; some 300 guests are expected to attend that function.
