In case you missed it, the first words Prince Harry said to Meghan Markle on their Wedding Day have been reported.
On their special day, as Harry stood at the altar waiting for his wife-to-be to join him, he looked totally bewildered.
When she came to his side, just what did he say? ‘You look amazing’. Just beautiful isn’t it – brings a tear to my weary eyes.

Harry’s reaction to his bride walking down the aisle was a truly breathtaking moment.
The two were pronounced husband and wife at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in front of family and friends, including The Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, as well as co-stars of the show Suits.
The ceremony was officiated by the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who performed the newlywed’s vows.
An incredibly moving sermon about ‘love’ and ‘humanity’ was dished out at the half-way point a truly beautiful speech – altough it does seem mildly hypocritical considering the homeless near Windsor were forced to pack up and leave the area…

At the beginning of the ceremony, Meghan was walked down the aisle by Prince Charles after her father, Thomas Markle, was forced to pull out due to last minute heart surgery recently.
On the morning of the wedding, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, accompanied her daughter to Windsor Castle, along with select members of the wedding party.
Following the ceremony, the couple took part in a carriage procession, starting from St. George’s Chapel, through Windsor town before returning to Windsor Castle via the Long Walk.
Alexi Lubomirski, the official wedding photographer, was taking pictures outside of Windsor Castle.
A statement from Kensington Palace, prior to the wedding, said:
They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.
Following the service, there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and the guests from the congregation. Later that evening, the Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.
Prince Harry also made sure members of his mother’s family, the late Princess Diana, was involved with his big day too.
A statement from Kensington Palace confirmed:
In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as best man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding.
All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading.
Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day.
