The marriage of Prince Harry and Markle took place in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle at 12pm. They became the 16th royal couple to celebrate their marriage at Windsor Castle since 1863. The Queen granted permission for the ceremony to be held in the place of worship, which seats approximately 800, and core aspects of the wedding, including the service, music, flowers, decorations and reception, were paid for by the royal family.

On the morning of the nuptials, Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, accompanied Markle to Windsor Castle. Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, was not at the wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle, because of his health. In a statement made days before her wedding, Markle said she had “always cared” for her father and hoped he could be given the space he needed to focus on his wellbeing. It was subsequently announced that Prince Charles would give his future daughter-in-law away in her father’s absence.

Members of the royal family watch as the ceremony begins.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Kensington Palace has announced. 

By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day, and the vacant title Duke of Sussex has always been regarded as the most likely choice for the Prince.
