Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are Officially Husband and Wife

The royal wedding finally happened and it did not disappoint!

Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle in St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday in a true fairytale wedding. The two exchanged vows and said their ‘I do’s’ in front of approximately 600 guests, and millions of onlookers worldwide of course. 

It was a day of celebration for the British monarchy that saw their beloved Price be united in holy matrimony with the woman he loves, officially crowned as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

The star-studded event included guests from across the Atlantic as well as the local elite. Appearances in the wedding included the bride’s sister in law’s family, the Middletons of course, with a pregnant Pippa looking absolutely glowing in a pastel floral dress. Also in attendance was Oprah Winfrey in a powder pink ensemble with a wide-brimmed hat to match. A-listers George and Amal Clooney, as well as David and Victoria Beckham, also came to celebrate with the couple on their big day. Victoria looked gorgeous clad in a navy dress and fascinator, complete with a slick ponytail. After being snubbed by Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, Sarah Ferguson, mother of Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice was is attendance looking better than ever. 

Markle’s Suits co-stars were practically all there supporting their former cast-mate as she tied the knot, including Sarah Rafferty, Rick Hoffman, Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams (and wife Troian Bellisario), Gina Torres, Abigail Spencer and Jacinda Barrett. 

Markle looked breathtaking walking down the aisle in a Givenchy wedding gown. The classic design by Clare Waight Keller included a high open neckline that showed off her shoulders. She accessorized with Cartier earrings and bracelet. Markle chose to borrow the Queen Mary’s Filigree tiara and completed the look with an elegant pulled-back updo. Her wedding ring was gifted by the Queen.

As her father was unable to attend, Markle was escorted down the aisle by her father-in-law and future kind of England, Prince Charles.

The two opted for a very modern ceremony which in many ways parted with tradition. After the 1-hour ceremony, the two stepped out on the steps of the Chapel, for their very first kiss as husband and bride.

The ceremony was followed by a more intimate event, an evening wedding reception hosted by the Queen. The newlyweds left Windsor Castle and headed to Frogmore House for the evening festivities, in a  gorgeous 1968 Jaguar. For the reception, Markle chose a Stella McCartney design that featured a halter neckline and an A-line silhouette. She completed the look with a tighter up-do and accessorized with an aquamarine cocktail ring gifted to her from Prince Harry, from his late mother’s jewelry collection.

It was a day filled with genuine love and intimacy as Prince Harry’s face was full of emotion as he first saw his bride walking down the aisle. When the two finally met, his first words to her were “you look amazing.” The couple could barely contain their excitement when the Dean of Windsor spoke of in her service of children as “the foundation of family life.”

It was a true fairytale wedding and definitely one for the books.
