LONDON- As Kate and William were saying "I will," many Americans on the royally packed streets of London were saying "I won't" - hardly see a thing without a periscope, reports CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy.

"I just saw the top of a car and little white," said Beth Doramajian from New York.

When the bride finally revealed her dress, CBS News had to show the crowd pictures. They could only hear the service on loudspeakers.

After a 24-hour camp out, some red-hatted Americans swear Prince Harry spotted them.

"He waved to us! He was looking at us," one said.

They then fought their way right to the front gate of Buckingham to see the duke and duchess seal the deal.

"That was a lengthy lip lock," one said.

It was something Charlotte Barbato from Boston was determined to see. She didn't have a view from the crowd, so CBS News let her into the broadcast booth.

"Oh look at them!" Barbato exclaimed.

She's waited 30 years since Charles and Diana's royal kiss to see this one in person.

"It's just unbelievable," said Barbato, wiping away a tear. "It is a dream come true."

For a Boston commoner and British royals alike.
