Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been proclaimed husband and wife by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a ceremony watched by a global audience of hundreds of millions of people.
A host of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, and David Beckham are among the 600 invited guests alongside senior members of the Royal family.
Another 2,640 members of the public have been chosen to watch the ceremony from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Meghan Markle’s father Thomas, unable to attend the wedding after undergoing emergency heart surgery, was believed to be watching the ceremony from California.
She was followed by her six bridesmaids and four pageboys including Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Markle was then accompanied by the Prince of Wales through the Choir, which begins in the middle of the chapel.
The couple was declared husband and wife at shortly before 12.45 PM.
After the couple tied the knot at St George’s Chapel, they delighted tens of thousands of well-wishers as they traveled through Windsor in an open-topped carriage.
Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel and Markle will be known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry, aged 33 is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II while Meghan Markle is 36-years-old.
In November 2016, Kensington Palace confirmed the Suits actress was the Prince’s girlfriend, with a statement adding that Harry was concerned for her safety due to high media attention.
After the newlyweds emerged at the West Steps of the Chapel, the couple were waved off and watched by members of the Royal family as they left in an open-top Ascot Landau for a carriage procession through Windsor.
