The Official Royal Wedding Photographs

If you’re still looking to get your royal fix or you’re just feeling a bit nostalgic after seeing yesterday’s blissful nuptials between Prince William and Kate Middleton, check out the official Flickr account of the British Monarchy.

(Burnand is a portrait and society photographer who also photographed the marriage of the Prince of Wales to Camilla Parker-Bowles in 2005.)
