The Royal Wedding: William and Kate tie the knot!

Princes Harry and William with Kate and Michael Middleton in Westminster Abbey

Prince William and Kate Middleton have been married at Westminster Abbey.

Miss Middleton is wearing an ivory and lace gown designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

Some 1,900 guests watched the couple exchange their vows, with many millions watching at home. The service is expected to finish at 1215 BST.

Thousands of people are lining the procession route the couple will take from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace after the service.
Despite the risk of showers, the pair will travel in an open-topped 1902 State Landau carriage for the procession, which was used by Prince William parents for their wedding in 1981.
The day has started off dry and cloudy in London but the Met Office says there is a risk of heavy showers developing later on. Temperatures in the capital are expected to reach a high of 19C (66F) in the afternoon.
The prince is wearing the red tunic of an Irish Guards colonel - his most senior honorary appointment - but the bride's dress design is being kept secret.
Prince William has been given the title of the Duke of Cambridge by the Queen, and Miss Middleton will become Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge on their marriage.
The prince has also became the Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, which means Miss Middleton will become the Countess of Strathearn and Baroness Carrickfergus

Phrasal verbs, or multi-word verbs, are verbs that are combined with one or two particles (a preposition or adverb), for example, 'up' or 'down', to make verbs with new meanings. These new meanings are usually non-literal. For example, to pick means to select or choose (she picked him for her team) but to pick someone or something up means to lift someone or something using your hands (Dr Laver told Molly to pick up one of the babies).

Present Perfect Continuous (Intermediate)

Hi everyone! As you know, the grammar point of unit 11 is "Present Perfect Continuous":HAVE / HAS BEEN + Ving.
Example: I have been studying English all day, I am exhausted!

You can check the links below and do the exercises online! I´ll explain it tomorrow in class!
