Prince Harry and Meghan Markle   - Sakshi Post

Windsor: Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle today were welcomed by jubilant crowds at St George's Chapel in Windsor castle for their wedding that saw attendance from a star-studded congregation. Markle has 10 bridesmaids and pageboys - including Prince George and Princess Charlotte .

Wearing a dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, Ms Markle was met by Prince Charles, who walked her down the aisle. Among the 600 guests are Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham and Sir Elton John. Prince Harry has been made the Duke of Sussex by the Queen, with Ms Markle becoming the Duchess of Sussex.

The 33-year-old prince, who is sixth in line to the throne, also received the titles Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Thousands of well-wishers are in Windsor, while hundreds more camped out overnight to secure the best viewing spot. The 36-year-old bride walked up the aisle on her own before being joined by Harry's father Prince Charles. Her own father pulled out amid a media row that overshadowed the meticulous palace preparations.

Tens of thousands of well-wishers cheered as Harry arrived at the church with his brother and best man Prince William, both wearing dark military uniforms. Politicians, including Prime Minister Theresa May, were not invited, as the wedding is not a state event. But the former Prime Minister, Sir John Major, is among the invited guests. About 1,200 members of the public - many who are recognised for their charity work - have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding. (PTI)
