Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding anniversary: 60 stunning photos show moments you might have missed from the Royal wedding

One year has passed since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married in a fairytale wedding that captivated hundreds of millions of people around the globe.

The royal couple became husband and wife in the historic surrounds of St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

The Queen, Prince Philip, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara Tindall and a host of other royals were in attendance for the glittering ceremony.

Windsor was bathed in sunshine as 100,000 people including celebrity guests such as David Beckham, Elton John and Oprah Winfrey gathered in the town to celebrate.

Some 2,640 members of the public were welcomed into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch events unfold while thousands of well-wishers lined the streets for eagerly-anticipated occasion.

Prince Harry and Prince William later took their place in St George's Chapel, sitting on chairs at the top of the altar as the groom looked visibly nervous beside his best man.

She walked herself up the steps to the chapel – with help from her two pageboys – before being greeted by Prince Charles who walked her down the aisle.

As they met at the altar, Harry told his wife-to-be “You look amazing, just gorgeous”, and the couple beamed at one another in front of a 600-strong audience.

The couple then shared a kiss on the steps of the chapel before being whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage for a procession in front of adoring fans.
