#RoyalWedding: Royal Family thanks public

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

The Royal Family has thanked those who traveled to Windsor for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

 

Thousands of people lined the streets to see the couple on their big day, with many more watching the ceremony on television around the globe.

The wedding celebrations ended with a black-tie dinner and fireworks display at Frogmore House, near Windsor Castle.

Two hundred of Meghan and Harry’s closest friends and family attended the event held by Prince Charles.

The couple are not expected to leave for their honeymoon immediately, choosing instead to remain in the UK before taking a break.

The newlyweds – now to be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – spent the night at Windsor Castle.

Meghan has previously said she wants to “hit the ground running” on becoming a full-time royal.

The prince and his bride exchanged vows and rings before the Queen and 600 guests at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Saturday.

“You look amazing,” Prince Harry told Ms Markle after she walked down the aisle in a white boat-neck dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller.

Prince Harry himself was given special permission from the Queen to keep his short beard as it is customary to be clean-shaven when dressed in Army uniform.

Large crowds turned out in bright sunshine to see them driven around Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage.
