Prince Harry, 33, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, married Meghan Markle, 36, an American actress, humanitarian, activist and now a member of the British royal family at a ceremony at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in Windsor, an ancient town west of London on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
Among the 600 guests invited were Oprah Winfrey, Elton John, Serena Williams, the Clooneys and the Beckhams.
Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel and Ms. Markle will be known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex. For more photos from the guests, arrival go here.
In the scheme of things, the untraditional wedding ceremony is not really that important as Harry is only sixth in line to the throne. But Ms. Markle is a highly unusual royal bride who’s American, three years older than Harry, divorced, and has a high-profile career and is biracial.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally been proclaimed husband and wife by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a ceremony watched by a global audience of hundreds of millions of people.
After the couple – the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex – tied the knot at St George’s Chapel, they delighted tens of thousands of well-wishers as they travelled through Windsor in an open-topped carriage.
Ms Markle’s white wedding dress – with a white veil and boat neck – was created by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female Artistic Director at French fashion house Givenchy. Prince Harry and his best man the Duke of Cambridge are both wearing the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals. Check out all the photos your missed from the beautiful ceremony below.
