Prince William returning to his RAF Valley in Anglesey today, days after his wedding was watched by two billion around the world
A few days ago his every move was watched by an estimated two billion people.
But today it was back to more familiar territory as Prince William returned to work at his RAF base in Anglesey.
Wearing sunglasses he was behind the steering wheel of an Audi seen arriving at the Air and Sea Rescue HQ.

It was thought Prince William and his bride would honeymoon this week until it emerged that the new Duke of Cambridge had to return to work.
Despite his status as second in line to the throne he, like his colleagues, had to apply for leave like his colleagues.
He was given a week off for the wedding but was told that he would have to split any further holiday requests – hence the delayed departure date.
The Mail revealed this week that the couple are due to fly out by private jet in mid-May before being taken by helicopter from the mainland to a tropical retreat.
Two Scotland Yard protection officers checked the destination a fortnight ago to ensure it would give the couple the privacy they crave.

The Mail is not publishing details of the location, and it is understood that not even Kate is aware of the exact destination.
The Prince is not the only wedding guest who returned to their everyday life just days after the global event of the Royal Wedding.
Five days ago the Queen was the proud grandmother overseeing a wedding watched by two billion people.
But after the bank holiday it was back to the daily routine for the monarch yesterday as she visited Newmarket, Cambridge.
