Harry and Meghan Wed In A British royal Ceremony like no Other before
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become husband and wife in a moving ceremony at Windsor Castle.
An emotional-looking prince and his smiling bride exchanged vows and rings before the Queen and 600 guests at St George’s Chapel.
Ms Markle, wearing a white boat-neck dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, was walked down the aisle by Prince Charles. At the altar, Prince Harry told her: “You look amazing.”
Now married, the couple will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The guests, many of them A-listers, included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham and Sir Elton John, who later performed at the wedding reception.
Most striking was a diamond bandeau tiara, loaned to her by the Queen, and a trailing five-metre silk veil embroidered with the flowers of each country in the Commonwealth.
Her 10 young bridesmaids and page boys – including Prince George and Princess Charlotte – rose to the occasion.
However, the excitement became too much for one of the younger ones who started crying just before Ms Markle entered the chapel.
Prince Charles walked Ms Markle down the aisle,after her father, Thomas, was unable to attend for health reasons.
Mr Markle, 73, reportedly watched the ceremony from California.
He told the US celebrity website, TMZ: “My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.”
Ms Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, stayed with her daughter overnight before accompanying her to the chapel.
