Royal couple release wedding pics
The official royal wedding photograph featuring the Queen

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have released the official photographs of their wedding ceremony.

In one of the pictures they are joined by Princes William and Harry, while another features the Duchess' children Tom and Laura Parker Bowles.

One shows the couple flanked by family, including the Queen and Prince Philip and Camilla's father Major Bruce Shand.

The photos were taken in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle by official photographer Hugo Burnand.

The photographs followed the couple's blessing at the Castle's St George's Chapel after the wedding at Windsor's Guildhall.

The couple look relaxed and happy in the pictures, which show the Duchess in her second outfit of her wedding day, a porcelain blue silk dress with a hand-painted design and featuring gold embroidery.

It was completed with a Swarovski-tipped gold leafed feather head-dress and grey shot silk court shoes.

The royal couple began their honeymoon on Sunday in Scotland, staying on the 50,000- acre Balmoral estate.

The wedding brings to a conclusion a relationship between Charles and Camilla that began when they met at a Windsor polo match in 1970, a year before the prince joined the Royal Navy.
