The bride and groom were showered with rose petals as they left Buckingham Palace for Waterloo Station after the Wedding Breakfast. Despite the freezing November weather, they drove in an open carriage so that the crowds could see the newly married couple. Tucked under the rugs alongside their hot water bottles was Susan, one of the Princess’s favourite corgis, who accompanied them on the honeymoon.
