Royal Wedding Photos: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Married

(Royal Family / Instagram)

Britain’s Prince Harry married American actress Meghan Markle in a royal wedding at Windsor Castle in front of 600 guests on May 19, 2018. Congratulations to the happy couple, who will now be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Let’s look at a few photos from the event, all of them courtesy of the Royal Family’s Instagram feed.

Here’s Meghan Markle being walked down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel by her about-to-become father-in-law, Prince Charles. Charles will be the next King of England, so that’s a big deal. But Prince Harry is a distant sixth in line to the throne now, behind his brother Prince William and William’s three kids, so the pressure was off in this wedding. Everyone could relax and have a good time.

Many royals you never heard of have been married in St. George’s Chapel over the years, like Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany and Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont in 1882. (He was the eighth child of Queen Victoria.) What a handsome chapel, though!

Prince Harry greets his bride-to-be at the altar. A professional lip-reader reported that Harry said “Are you OK? You look amazing” and Meghan Markle said “Thank you.”

On goes the ring! That’s the The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, looking on as officiant. (Side note: he did not actually introduce Meghan Markle as “Michael Morgle.”)

It’s all over but the shouting as the now-married Duke and Duchess of Sussex walk back down the aisle. That’s Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, at top right. Other wedding guests included tennis star Serena Williams and actor George Clooney and his wife, the lawyer Amal Clooney.

Here’s that first kiss again. Well, not their first kiss but their first married kiss — well, not their first married kiss, which was actually at the altar, but their official first kiss for the gathered crowds in public as man and wife.

And finally they’re off together, headed into married life in a carriage drawn by four white horses, as gathered crowds cheered them in Windsor. Good luck to them!

    I understand Meghan’s choice of ‘plain as hell’ dress. No one on earth could criticize her choice of style as being too bold, too risque, too much like any royal dress before her, etc. It’s obvious she doesn’t want ANY (more) DRAMA in her life, no more bad press or rumors…all the schadenfreude people everywhere seem to have when rich, successful people find happiness too. She LOVES her man and wants their lives to make a difference in this messed up world. Whatever it takes to keep hers and Harry’s love strong for a lifetime…she is willing to do. And yes, I know…she still got slammed for wearing such a simple dress, but the uppity-ups couldn’t say more than that. hahahahahahah

    • Good points. Plus, its a great dress! They both looked terrific.
