It's back to normal life for newlyweds William and Kate after all the royal wedding celebrations on Friday.

The Duke of Cambridge has gone back to work as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.

Loads of people have been queuing for up to three hours to get into Westminster Abbey to see the wedding flowers and trees that lined the aisle.

Prince William and his new wife spent a quiet weekend away in a secret destination.

They are due to have a honeymoon abroad later in the year.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said about William's first day back at work: "It will be a normal day at work for him after the wedding, nothing special planned."
