Royal weddings may be many things. Expensive, lavish, jam packed like sardines full of celebrities, but they’re rarely sexy.
By definition sexy is something which is ‘sexually attractive or exciting’, rarely the sort of thing one gets from a church full of old dudes in army uniforms singing hymns.
However I’m wrong, as many people on Twitter are claiming that something incredibly sexy went down, some going so far as to say the sexiest thing ‘ever’. What?!
So just what was this spectacle that unfolded while being filmed and broadcast to millions of people across the globe?
It’s probably not what you’re thinking. What it is is Prince Harry biting his lip after telling his bride-to-be Meghan Markle that she looks amazing.

The NBC anchors are discussing the lip bite and when Harry said ‘you look amazing’ and @SavannahGuthrie said “that’s when I texted my husband ‘I’m mad at you and I don’t know why’” and I feel that, I think we all feel that

People really do fancy Harry…
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 and co-stars of the show Suits.
The ceremony was officiated by the Dean of Windsor David Conner and the Arch Bishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who performed the newlywed’s vows. After being declared husband and Wife Prince Harry and Meghan shared their first kiss in public as newlyweds for the whole world to see.
An incredibly moving sermon about ‘love’ and ‘humanity’ was dished out at the half-way point of the ceremony, a truly beautiful speech. Though it does seem mildly hypocritical considering the homeless near Windsor were forced to pack up and leave the area…
At 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 this week. On the morning of the wedding, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, accompanied her daughter to Windsor Castle with select members of the wedding party.
However Meghan’s dad was watching the ceremony at his home in California and afterwards he revealed exactly what was on his mind the whole time.
Speaking to TMZ about his daughter’s big day, Thomas reportedly said: ‘My baby looks beautiful. I wish I was there’.
More specifically he said:
My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy. I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.
He added that watching the ceremony was ’emotional and joyful’ while watching the ceremony back home in America.
