Prince Harrys and Megan’s wedding took place Saturday 19 May 2018 at St George’s Chapel. Although it’s not traditional for a royal wedding to take place on the weekend, the couple settled on a Sunday to enable as many people as possible to come and enjoy the ceremony
It is reported that the government had voted not to grant a public holiday for the wedding, which was the reason the couple decided not to follow the tradition.
100,000 people were watching the wedding!
The emotional ceremony captivated the nation and left people in an aw. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchanged vows in front of the crowd of over 600 invited guests.
Among them, there were about 30 royals and many famous people, such as Queen, Oprah Winfrey, actor George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney, Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham and tennis champion Serena Williams.
As the couple was riding in an open-top Ascot Landau for a carriage procession through Windsor, it estimated that 100,000 people gathered to see them.
On their official Twitter account, the royal family wanted to express their gratitude to all the people that enjoyed the wedding by saying: “Thank you to everyone who came to Windsor and those who followed from around the UK, the Commonwealth, and the world today. Congratulations once again to the newly-married Duke and Duchess of Sussex. #royalwedding.”
The dress cost anywhere between $250,000 and $400,000!
Ms. Markle was wearing a stunning white gown with white veil, which was created by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female Artistic Director at French fashion house Givenchy.
The Duke of Cambridge was the best man of the royal wedding, and by tradition, he was in charge of bringing the right to the soon-to-be-married couple. Unlike his brother, Prince Harry decided to wear his wedding ring.
With that, Ms. Markle became the first mixed-race person to marry a British senior royal.
We wish all the luck to the happy couple and hope they stay together and happy for many years to come.
