Actor Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, sixth in line to the British throne, at St George’s chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby conducted the ceremony. The couple’s royal titles will be Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Markle arrived at the chapel with her mother Doria Ragland, reported The Telegraph. She walked up the nave – the central part of the church – of the St George’s chapel on her own. She was then accompanied by Prince Charles, Harry’s father, as her father could not attend the ceremony.
Michael Curry, the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal church in the United States, gave an address titled ‘Power of Love’, reported The Guardian. He opened his speech with the words of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Google celebrated the royal wedding with a doodle created by Vrinda V Zaveri, showing the newlyweds greeting well-wishers.
