It’s official! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been declared husband and wife, following a ceremony at Windsor Castle after exchanging vows in front of 600 guests at St. George’s Chapel.
Wearing a white form fitting dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, Ms Markle also wore Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, loaned to her by the Queen and a 5 metre veil embroidered with the flowers of each country in the Commonwealth.
Prince Charles walked the bride down the isle as her father was unable to attend the event due to health reasons. The bridal party was made up of 10 bridesmaids and pageboys – including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
In her vows, Ms Markle did not promise to “obey” her husband, while the prince broke with royal tradition by choosing to wear a wedding ring.
Prince Harry’s ring is a platinum band with a textured finish and Ms Markle’s has been made from a piece of Welsh gold.
Lady Jane Fellowes, the sister of Prince Harry’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, gave a reading.
All 600 guests will attend a reception at St George’s Hall, which is being given by the Queen where it is reported, Ms Markle will break with tradition for royal brides and make a speech.
