Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel

It was the day that millions of people had been waiting for but the big day arrived and Prince Harry has married Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Windsor was awash with crowds – Royal fans had begun arriving in the Royal Borough at the start of the week – and Saturday morning saw them flock to the town in their thousands.

Guests began arriving at St George’s Chapel as early as 9:30am where they entered through the South Door and took their seats to await the arrival of the Royal guests and indeed the Bride and Groom.

At just after 11:15am, the Royal party began to arrive at St George’s Chapel.

At the same time that the Royals began to arrive at St George’s Chapel, Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, left Cliveden House and began making their way to Windsor Castle.

Ms Ragland was dropped off at the Castle where she headed on to the Chapel while Meghan met up with her Bridesmaids and Page Boys who accompanied her to St George’s.

Prince Harry arrived at St George’s Chapel at around 11:45am alongside his Best Man, The Duke of Cambridge, where they walked past the thousands of ‘Golden Ticket’ winners who were invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle to help celebrate the big day.

Her Majesty The Queen was the last member of the royal party to arrive at St George’s Chapel before the Bride herself.

Meghan’s dress was by British designer Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy’s first female artistic director. Her 16-foot-long veil was held in place by a Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara lent to her by the Queen.

When Meghan arrived at the Chapel’s, West Steps she was met by Prince Charles, who she had chosen to walk her down the aisle.

Harry was visibly moved upon seeing his soon to be wife. He was seen to be wiping a tear or two as she walked down the aisle with Prince Charles.

Ms. Ragland, Meghan’s mother was visibly moved as she watched her daughter become The Duchess of Sussex.

As the left St George’s The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not disappoint the crowds when they gave each other a short but loving kiss as a newly married couple.

Our own Sean O’Keeffe was at The Long Walk and was lucky to catch the couple riding past as they made their way back to Windsor Castle.
