The big day is finally here! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are saying "I do" on May 19, but there's so much more going on at the royal wedding than just her walk down the aisle with future father-in-law Prince Charles. To make sure nothing goes missed, tune in to Hello! Canada's live stream of the entire event – from the A-list arrivals at St. George's Chapel and the beautiful ceremony to the couple's kiss and the newlyweds' traditional carriage procession around the city of Windsor.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially husband and wife! In a breathtaking ceremony in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, the royal couple joined in holy matrimony in front of 600 people, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Her Majesty and Prince Philip and other members of the Royal Family. And, of course, millions of others tuned in from abroad to see Meghan dazzle in her Givenchy gown and Prince Harry look dapper in his military uniform.
Family was at the forefront of their big day, with Meghan's loving mom, Doria Ragland, walking her down the aisle in a stunning Burberry dress and Princess Diana's sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, giving a moving reading at the service. The moment most were waiting for occurred on the West Steps of St. George's Chapel – for the first time in public, Harry and Meghan locked lips to celebrate their big day.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, officiated their royal nuptials, and was also responsible for Meghan's secret baptism into the Anglican faith just months before the two tied the knot. “I’m always nervous at weddings because it’s an important day for the couple," he told the BBC prior to the big day. But clearly, Justin was able to put his nerves aside for one of the most historic royal weddings ever!
Their service – which included the singing of traditional hymns and performances by the Choir of St. George's Chapel, 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and more – was followed by a traditional carriage procession through the streets of Windsor for 25 minutes, during which Meghan and Harry will smile and wave at their loyal fans, who lined the streets waiting eagerly for a glimpse of their new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
While Meghan opted out of choosing her friends as bridesmaids, the newlyweds were joined by some adorable little ones. Her best friend Jessica Mulroney's children, Ivy, 4, and seven-year-old twins Brian and John had roles in the wedding party, along with Kate and William's kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Other children who made up the bridal party included Harry's goddaughters Florence van Cutsem, 3, and Zalie Warren, 2; Meghan's godchildren Remi Litt, 6, and Rylan Litt, 7; and Harry's godson Jasper Dyer, 6.
