Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot today at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in possibly the most star-studded ceremony in history.
Meghan walked the aisle in a stunning bridal gown by British designer, Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy, but it wasn’t her dress that got the internet talking.
Nor was it the long list of A-list royal wedding guests – we’re talking Victoria Beckham, Amal Clooney, Serena Williams and Oprah, to name a few.
The wedding has instead been making news for being one of the most touching in royal history.
From the congregation laughing after Harry’s loud ‘I Do’ to the tiny bridesmaids and page boys tottering down the aisle behind Meghan Markle holding hands with each other, it was a personal service that moved many.
The most heartwarming moment however was when a beaming Meghan and Harry met at the altar, with the groom whispering some comforting words to his bride to be – and lip readers quickly clocked what exactly he said.
‘You look amazing, absolutely stunning’ he told Meghan, who smiled back at him. Ahh!
There was another sweet moment when Harry said ‘thank you, Pa’ as Prince Charles finished walking Meghan down the aisle.
After the ceremony, the couple are set to return to Windsor Castle with their 600 guests for a luncheon reception held by the Queen, and then of course the highly-anticipated after party, held at Frogmore House by Prince Charles.
However, one person who wasn’t in attendance was of course Meghan’s dad, Thomas Markle, who was forced to pull out following various issues.
But the proud dad was clearly watching, reportedly calling his daughter ‘beautiful’ as he commented on the royal wedding.
