Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became the sixteenth Royal Couple to celebrate their wedding at Windsor Castle since 1863.

Prince Charles stepped into the role of the bride’s father and walked Meghan Markle down the aisle for her marriage with Prince Harry. Markle’s father Thomas Markle Sr couldn’t’ attend the wedding due to ill-health.

Princess Charlotte, Harry’s niece was one of the six young girls chosen as bridesmaids, while her elder brother Prince George, aged four was chosen as a pageboy.

The royal couple opted for a modern touch to their marriage ceremony and instead of using traditional vows, selected words from The Marriage Service from Common Worship (2000).
