LONDON - Britain's Prince William arrived at Westminster Abbey on Friday to marry his long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton in a royal occasion of dazzling pomp and pageantry that has attracted a huge global audience.

The 28-year-old, who is second in line to the throne, wore the bright red military uniform as Colonel of the Irish Guards, and bells pealed loudly as he stepped into the historic abbey where he greeted some of the 1,900-strong congregation.

David and Victoria Beckham, the footballer-pop star couple, singer Elton John and Prime Minister David Cameron were among the famous guests at the abbey, coronation site for the monarchy since William the Conqueror was crowned in 1066.

They joined dozens of heads of state, charity workers and war veterans who know the prince from his military training.
