Prince Harry and American actor Meghan Markle were married on Saturday in a much-anticipated ceremony at Britain’s ancient Windsor Castle, who supporters hope will help recast the 1,000-year-old monarchy for the 21st century.
The Dean of Windsor conducted the service, which included two hymns and a performance by the choir of soul classic “Stand by Me”.
Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, officiated as the couple make their wedding vows.
Prince Harry told the Archbishop of Canterbury he would take Meghan Markle to be his wife at a glittering display of royal pageantry that supporters hope will inject a measure of modern Hollywood glamour into the 1,000-year-old monarchy.
“I will,” Harry answered when asked by Justin Welby if he would take Markle dressed in a flowing white gown created by British designer
Clare Waight Keller – to be his wife, to love her, comfort her, honour her and protect her. The declarations are being followed by a reading and the address, delivered by black US bishop Michael Bruce Curry.
The couple then said their vows, exchanged rings, “a Welsh Gold ring for Markle and a platinum band for Harry“ before the archbishop proclaims them husband and wife.
In departures from British royal custom, Harry will wear a ring, while Markle will not vow to obey her husband.
