Prince Harry had blushed cheeks as his bride walked down the aisle, but he soon recovered in time to share the sweetest of sentiments. It was just one of several romantic moments during the ceremony.
‘You look amazing’
After being walked down the aisle by Prince Charles, the bride was greeted by Prince Harry, who sweetly whispered, “You look amazing. I’m so lucky.” Cue hearts melting.

A comforting hand
Another sweet interaction between the pair occurred while the Most Rev. Michael Curry spoke during the service.
A very nervous-looking Prince Harry could be seen fiddling with his fingers as he sat with his bride.
Markle comforted hew now-husband by placing her hand on his and stroking it.
The first kiss
It didn’t end there. When the pair left St. George’s Chapel to have their first kiss as a married couple, her hand — again — was placed over Prince Harry’s. The smooch was reportedly preceded by Markle asking, “Do we kiss?” before getting the go-ahead from her new husband.
