Back to reality: Michael Middleton mowing the lawn days after he walked his daughter down the aisle
It has only been days since Michael Middleton escorted his eldest daughter Kate down the aisle to meet Prince William in Westminster Abbey.
But today he was brought back down to Earth, and reality, as he carried out some gardening chores and mowed the lawn at the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
Without a care in the world and wearing gardening gloves and jeans, he hopped onto the ride-on mower to manicure the lawns around the country pile.
Grand: A nervous Mr Middleton with his daughter Kate in the Queen's 1977 Rolls-Royce
It was a far cry from the Queen's classic 1977 Rolls-Royce Phanton VI that he had travelled in as nearly two-billion people across the world watched him make his way from the Goring Hotel to the abbey with the Duchess of Cambridge.
After partying late into the evening and mixing with Royalty at Buckingham Palace, the family returned to their home on Saturday after spending two-nights at the Goring Hotel.
The buzz and excitement of the wedding over and the harsh reality of getting back to their daily chores and jobs will be setting in.
On Tuesday, like their new son-in-law Prince William, they will no doubt be getting back to work at their online business, Party Pieces.
The company has recently advertised for two positions to be filled, sparking speculation that the Duchess of Cambridge's only sister, Pippa, might become lady-in-waiting.
Her job would be to help Kate settle into Royal life as well as help keep her sister's diary.
Miss Middleton, 27, has become an overnight sensation after photos of her derrière were splashed across the world.
There are countless Facebook pages in praise of the maid-of-honour's behind, one of which, the Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society, has over 44,000 fans.
It rivals the main Pippa Middleton fan page, which has around 92,000 followers.
