6 highlights from Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's royal wedding

A modern fairytale...

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was held Saturday (May 19) at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom. The groom, Prince Harry who is a member of the British royal family, married Meghan Markle, an American former actress. Meghan is now known as the Duchess of Sussex, and she will be the first to hold this title; Harry is now the Duke of Sussex. 

Meghan's dress 

Meghan walked down the isle wearing a minimalist gown with three-quarter sleeves and a boat neck. The pure white gown was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy.

Meghan had a beautiful 5-meter long train which streamed down the aisle. The lace detailing on her veil, also designed by Waight Keller, is reportedly a nod to the 53 Commonwealth countries. In addition, Meghan also wore Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, on loan from the queen.

The way Harry looks at Meghan 

Thanks to fashion designer Misha Nonoo, Meghan and Harry met! Misha is a mutual friend of the couple and Meghan and Harry have been in a whirlwind romance ever since. 

You can just tell how much Harry and Meghan are in love! Throughout their Saturday wedding, the couple found little ways to touch each other's hands and they had so many lovey dovey moments at the wedding. At one point, Harry even told Meghan, "you look amazing!" Aww!

The gospel choir who stole the show

The seasoning and flavor was definitely brought to this royal wedding! 

Meghan and Harry’s wedding was filled with music. There was the traditional choir of St. George’s Chapel, conducted by its music director James Vivian. And then here was a gospel choir, the Kingdom Choir, conducted by Karen Gibson, a sang a rendition of Ben E. King's “Stand by Me." 

Check out a clip of the choir performing below:

This 19-year-old cellist

19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason was the first black musician to win the BBC Young Musician of the Year award in 2016. He was reportedly scheduled to be in Los Angeles on the day of the royal wedding but then Meghan called him! So, obviously, his plans changed. Sheku performed Franz Schubert's "Ave Maria," Gabriel Fauré's "Après un rêve" and Maria Theresia von Paradis' "Sicilienne" at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.
Prince Harry's exes were in the house 

Prince Harry's exes, Chelsy Davy, 32, who had an on-off relationship with the Prince between 2004 and 2011, and Cressida Bonas, 28, were in attendance at the wedding. Awkward? Nope! Him and his two exes have remained friendly since their splits. 

But, check out Chelsy's face below at the ceremony ... priceless!
