Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchanged vows in front of 600 guests including the Queen, more than 30 royals and famous faces. Prince Harry, 33, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, married Meghan Markle, 36, an American actress, at Windsor Castle. Each has a new title. Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Ms. Markle will be known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex. Oprah Winfrey was there. So was Elton John, Serena Williams, and the Clooneys and the Beckhams.

Sir Elton, who was a good friend for Harry's mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, performed at the lunchtime reception.

More than 100,000 people turned out to see the couple as they sat in an open carriage  through Windsor and to express  their congratulations  to the newly-married Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Ms. Markle is a highly unusual royal bride: She’s American, divorced, three years older than Harry, had a high-profile career and is biracial. It’s a new day for the monarchy.

Black bishop Rev. Michael Curry makes history, mentions slavery in American-style sermon in front of the British Royalty

Rev. Michael Curry was giving an American-style sermon called "The Power of Love".Curry said: "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: 'We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way.'
"There’s power in love," he added in his own words. "Do not underestimate it. Anyone who has ever fallen in love knows what I mean."

He was followed by gospel choir Kingdom Choir singing Ben E. King's Stand By Me. Beautiful moment.


Around 600 guests were in attendance. As Prince Harry is sixth in line to the throne, he was not obliged to invite diplomats from across the globe to the celebration, which was less of a state occasion. 
It was an extraordinary mix of tradition and modernity, of centuries of history and up-to-the moment flourishes. Oprah was here, and so was Meghan’s mother, an African-American social worker who wore a conventional mother-of-the-bride outfit and also a nose stud.
Some of the 1,200 guests, who were selected by regional Lord Lieutenant offices from a broad range of backgrounds and age groups, were announced on Twitter, along with the stories of how they have served their communities.
Veterans from Afghanistan and celebrities joined the celebration together.

Queen Elizabeth stepped out at the wedding showing her support for the union and she had pulled out all the stops for the occasion.
She loves her colour-popping brights and once again Queen Elizabeth made sure she was seen, choosing a lime green coat. She loves a matchy-matchy look and chose a hat in the same hue with contrasting purple feather detail.
