The guests have streamed in to Westminster Abbey to watch Prince William marry Kate Middleton. Who got the biggest cheers from the throngs outside? Prime Minister David Cameron was a hit, as was Elton John—and, of course, Princes William and Harry, who arrived looking dapper in full military regalia. Prince Charles and Camilla have arrived, as has the queen; no glimpse of Kate yet, but the BBC notes that her dress designer was likely spotted yesterday and could be Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen.

The guests are a mixture of royalty (more than 50 from the UK, roughly 40 from foreign monarchies), political figures, and celebrities, many of whom are wearing very large hats.
