The Wedding Watched All Around The World
If you were overly excited watching the Royal Wedding, you are not alone. Here is everything you need to know about the beloved couple’s special day
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex said their heartfelt “I do’s” in front of roughly 600 members of their friends and families. Among some of the bigger names in Hollywood, celebrities like Oprah, Idris Elba, The Beckham’s, The Clooney’s, Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams, and many more were in attendance to support Harry and Meghan.
It seemed everyone was sporting their best looks, but a few people really turned some heads before bride Meghan Markle stole the show. Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams caught everyone’s attention upon arrival, and Oprah revealed she had a last minute wardrobe change because she felt the original look would photograph too closely to the white dress the bride would be wearing.

A few “aww” moments happened on Saturday, potentially raising the bar for men everywhere. Prince Harry hand-picked flowers for Meghan’s bouquet, some of which is his late mother’s favorite flower: Forget Me Not’s. The Prince was also caught swooning over his beautiful bride several times throughout the ceremony mouthing the words “you look amazing,” and “I’m so lucky.” We can see him gently stroking her hand, biting his lip, and smiling with such genuineness unable to take his eyes off her. The new Duchess was all smiles herself and the two couldn’t have looked more blissfully in love.
Several things about this wedding proved nontraditional, but the alterations to the classic ceremony proved tasteful and representative of Meghan Markle and what she embodies. Meghan walked the majority of the way on her own before being met by Prince Charles, Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon moved people everywhere, the bride gave a speech following the ceremony, and the display of culture and acceptance shined brightly throughout the day.
The two continued their celebration at the reception with their loved ones where Idris Elba hopped on the 1’s and 2’s, more stunning outfits were revealed, and the great Elton John performed. We wish this beautiful couple all of the love and happiness in the world!
