Royal wedding 2018: Prince Harry and Meghan married at Windsor



Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become husband and wife, following a ceremony at Windsor Castle.

 
The couple exchanged vows and rings before the Queen and 600 guests at St George's Chapel.


Wearing a dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, Ms Markle was met by Prince Charles, who walked her down the aisle.


Following their marriage, the couple will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.


Among the guests were Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham and Sir Elton John.


Ms Markle had 10 bridesmaids and pageboys - including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.


She wore Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, loaned to her by the Queen.


Her sculpted white dress was designed by Ms Waight Keller for French fashion house Givenchy.


The look was completed with a five-metre veil and embroidered with the flowers of each country in the Commonwealth.

Meghan surprised everyone by choosing a timeless gown from Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller, who was on hand to assist the bride with her train as she stepped out of her car at St George's Chapel
