Prince William asked Kate Middleton if their first public kiss as a married couple was "OK".

The newlyweds - now titled the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in London on April 29 and shared two kisses, to the cheers of crowds below and delight of a worldwide TV audience estimated at two billion.

As he turned to his new wife for their first kiss, William, 28, said, "Kate, shall we? Shall we kiss. Come on, OK? The kiss."

According to The Sun newspaper, after they briefly touched lips William stood back, smiled and asked her, "That OK?"

Two minutes after their first smooch, William responded to chants from the crowd assembled below of "kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss," by asking his bride, "Do you want this? Takes a bit of getting used to."

"Another kiss! One more? Let's give them another one. I love you. One more kiss - go on, come here."

The couple lingered longer for their second kiss, which lasted 1.25 seconds, before Kate, 29, pulled away with a huge smile on her face for the assembled crowd which lined The Mall below.

William is then said to have called time on their public displays of affection, saying, "That's it. No more, no more, I'm embarrassed."

The young royal couple had earlier been married at nearby Westminster Abbey and were joined on the balcony by their bridal party and respective families - including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton to watch a fly by of Royal Air Force (RAF) jets.
