When did the balcony kiss tradition start?

Queen Victoria was the first to head out on to the royal balcony after her wedding after she married Prince Albert in 2011

The platform was used to address the public and greet the masses but Vic and Al didn’t share any post nuptial kisses.

The first couple to pucker up on the balcony was Charles and Diana in 1981.

The tradition was continued by Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson  after their marriage in 1986.

More recently Prince William and Kate got in on the action after their wedding in 2011.
