Just married! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their triumphant departure from Windsor Castle after exchanging vows at St. George's Chapel on Saturday. The just married Duke and Duchess of Sussex delighted the crowd by kissing outside the church, then smiling and waving throughout their horse-drawn carriage ride. Scroll down RadarOnline.com's gallery for more on the romantic procession!
Following royal tradition, the Prince, 33, and his now-wife, 36, rode in an Ascot Landau carriage by a cheering crowd during their post-wedding procession.
Following their ceremony, Harry and Markle left Windsor Castle. After kissing outside in front of the public, they climbed inside their carriage and were driven along Castle Hill, Windsor High Street and into the town center along Sheet Street, Kings Road and Albert Road.
The Prince and former Suits actress, dressed in her boat-neck Givenchy wedding gown, a veil and tiara, were all smiles during the carriage procession. They waved constantly to the crowd and Markle sometimes touched her heart to show well-wishers how touched she was by the huge response. The two lucked out with sunny weather reminiscent of Los Angeles, where Markle grew up!
The newlyweds returned to Windsor Castle for their wedding reception after being driving along the beautiful tree-lined Long Walk. Harry, who served in the British army, wore a frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals as his wedding attire. His brother William was his best man, and dad Prince Charles walked Markle down the aisle after her own father, Thomas Markle, suffered a heart attack and an embarrassing photo scandal and wasn't able to attend. Markle's mother, yoga teacher and social worker Doria Ragland, was her only immediate family member to attend, and she was in tears during the ceremony.
After the carriage ride, Harry and Meghan were set to get their official photos taken and greet guests at an afternoon reception hosted by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at St George's Hall. Guests included George Clooney and his wife Amal, who is a friend of Meghan's, and tennis star Serena Williams with her internet entrepreneur husband Alexis. Elton John and soccer legend David Beckham and his Spice Girls wife, Victoria, also enjoyed the big day!
But that's not all. Later on their wedding day, Harry and Meghan were expected to leave Windsor Castle to attend a second wedding reception, an evening affair which will take place at Frogmore House. They are sure to dance the night away!
