12:13 p.m.: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a k a Wills and Kate) have emerged from Westminster Abbey to the ringing of wedding bells, a roar of cheers and a throng of news photographers. They then hopped into their open carriage for their ride around the neighborhood, waving to the crowds along the route.

Our face in the crowd, Claudia Boyd-Barrett, reports: The royal couple just rode down The Mall and the crowd went wild. People were calling on their cell phones saying "I'VE SEEN THEM!"
