Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not exempt from the wedding nerves that every bride and groom feel on their big day, but Harry more so by the looks of it. The royal was nervously excited as his bride arrived at the altar of St George's Chapel, and according to one lip reader, he told Meghan: "You look amazing." The cheeky Prince then added: "I'm ******** myself." Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, tied the knot shortly after noon on Saturday. At the end of the ceremony, the newlyweds exited the church and posed at the top of the steps. "Do we kiss?" Meghan asked her new husband. "Yes," replied Harry. 

The ceremony lasted for an hour, with highlights including Meghan arriving at the church and stunning in a Givenchy gown and impressive veil. The former actress walked the first part of the aisle with her adorable six bridesmaids and four pageboys, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and was met by her future father-in-law Prince Charles at the start of the quire.

Harry was visibly emotional as he set eyes on his bride for the first time, while his best man and older brother Prince William proudly stood by his side. William's wife Kate, who gave birth to their third child Prince Louis just three weeks ago, was among the royal family guests. The Duchess looked gorgeous in an Alexander McQueen pale yellow coat dress.
