Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex best known as Prince Harry and a former actress, Meghan Markle, are officially husband and wife.

The prince, who is sixth in line to the British throne, married Markle, the American actress known for her role on the USA Network legal drama Suits, on Saturday in a ceremony held at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel in the English county of Berkshire, west of London, United Kingdom.

“I, Harry, take you, Meghan to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse,” Prince Harry vowed.

“For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.”

Prince Harry made the vow in front of a congregation that included his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II; the Duke of Edinburgh; Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall.

Best man and brother Prince William stood at Harry’s side while he and Markle exchanged vows.

The Prince of Wales accompanied Ms. Meghan Markle down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel today.

Prince Harry presented Markle with a wedding band, slipping it onto her finger with the words, “Meghan, I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage. With my body, I honour you. All that I am, I give to you and all that I have, I share with you within the love of God, father, son, and holy spirit.”

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly reports that Markle arrived at the chapel in a vintage Rolls-Royce precisely at 12 p.m. local time, wearing a dress by British designer Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller and the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau. Followed by her six flower girls and four-page boys (including Princess Charlotte and Prince George), the bride entered the chapel and began her walk down the aisle alone, before being joined by Prince Charles, Harry’s father, as she approached the midway mark.

Markle’s own father, Thomas Markle, was unable to attend the ceremony due to health issues, but her mother, Doria Ragland, was in attendance.

Only six hundred (600) were invited to the royal wedding and another 2,640 members of the public were chosen to watch the ceremony from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
