The royal wedding, in pictures: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle


With millions watching around the world Saturday, Britain’s Prince Harry married American Meghan Markle in a ceremony that combined British pageantry with modern style.

After the wedding, the couple rode through the town of Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage, greeting people along a two-mile procession. People came from far and wide to get a glimpse of the newlyweds and be a part of the local festivities.

The day will end with a couple of receptions: one in the afternoon hosted by Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and another at night hosted by his father, Prince Charles.
