Westminster Abbey was packed with royals, commoners and celebrities for the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. Footballer David Beckham and his fashion designer wife Victoria waved to cheering crowds as they entered the church for the ceremony. Singer-songwriter Elton John and partner David Furnish also received cheers as the couple, dressed in tails, passed onlookers. Prince William's uncle and the brother of the late Princess Diana, Earl Charles Spencer was seen inside the church making his way to his seat. One of the first politicians to arrive was former British Prime Minister John Major. And actor Rowan Atkinson, most-famed for his Mr. Bean movies, blended into the crowd as he walked down the isle of the Abbey. Members of the royal family arrived after the VIP guests were seated.
