Newlyweds Prince William and Duchess Catherine were seen leaving Buckingham Palace earlier today. They walked hand-in-hand from the Queen's home, where they had stayed following last night's reception, The Telegraph reports.

According to the Official Royal Wedding web site, the couple, who departed via helicopter, are not heading out on their honeymoon... yet:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to depart for a honeymoon immediately. Instead, after spending the weekend privately in the United Kingdom, The Duke will return to work as a Search and Rescue pilot next week. The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance. The Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon."

There are rumors that their weekend trip will likely be to a royal residence in Scotland, possibly Balmoral.

The duchess wore a pleated blue dress with skinny black belt paired with a collarless jacket and wedges, while William sported a pale blue button-down and navy jacket with khakis.

Palace staff reportedly carried out their luggage, which included a bouquet of white flowers.

    actually they are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, please read.

    They do not want people to know exactly what they are or will do. That is their personal business.

    I do not blame them.

    I do know that the media will be watching them like a hawk.

    You did not see, or watch with attention to, the whole ceremony video. Will and Kate stopped in the aisle leaving the ceremony to shake hands with Diana's brother (I forget his name.)

    Just to clarify, Kate has only worked about 3 mos during their whole relationship. She didn't work until about 3 or 4 yrs ago when the Queen started voicing concerns about her not really doing anything and just waiting for William. So, Kate went to work at Jigsaw as a buyer, but that was an exaggerated title apparently. She only worked 3 days per week b/c she "needed" to be available for William. After 3 mos, it got too much for her and she quit. She has been reportedly working for her parent's party company pre engagement, but that was in name only. Basically, her career has been waiting for William to come home from training, etc.
    In England, that has been the big complaint about her: that she has no real motivation since college except to marry William. I am not being critical, just the facts.

    IF THIS IS A STATEMENT RELEGATING YOUR OPINION THAT INDICATES THE IRRELEVANCE OF "POMP & CIRCUMSTANCE" ..I AM REMINDED THAT JESUS' MOM WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO SEW HIM A NEW ROBE FOR HIS UPCOMING MINISTRY.. SHE ALSO AKNOWLEDGED HER BELIEF IN HIS POSITION WHEN SHE ADDED A FOURTH TASSLE AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS ROBE INDICATING HIS SUPERIORITY IN THE GRAND SCEME OF THINGS,WHEN EVEN THE HIGHEST OF PRIESTS HAD ONLY THREE. ALL FOR SHOW..? AND YOU ARE THINKING THAT I SHOULD NOT CARE ABOUT THAT..??? IT IS ALL MEANT FOR INFORMATION TO BE ACTED UPON. THEN WHEN HE RODE THROUGH TOWN ON A DONKEY, THAT ACTION WAS NOT SET UP TO INDICATE HUMILITY, BUT RATHER STRENGTH.. THE DONKEY WAS THE "ASTIN MARTIN, THE ROLLS ROYCE, THE LINCOLN LIMO, OF THE DAY. PROROCAL IS DISPISED ONLY BY THE UNINFORMED OR MAYBE, TO BE KIND, THE MIS INFORMED. BUT CERTAINLY NOT FOR THE STUBBORN MINDSETS.

    Whats wrong with going bald, and you must have given a "flying crap" because you took the time to read and put a post up.

    Armari, You sure do sound like some sad individual. seems like you are mad because your viewing time was taken up by something that a lot of people enjoyed watching. Why dont you go outside and meet people or get a hobby or something?
