Royal wedding 2018: Royal Family thanks public

Meghan Duchess of Sussex leaves Windsor Castle after getting married on May 19

But anyone with a lingering case of royal wedding fever could join the tourists and locals soaking up the romantic mood and continued sunshine in the town of Windsor, where Saturday's wedding and post-service carriage procession were held.

The wedding service combined British tradition with modernity and the bride's African-American heritage.

Ms Waight Keller said she will give her final design sketches to Meghan as a keepsake.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, conducted the ceremony and proclaimed the royal couple husband and wife shortly after 12:30 local time. Soon after, the newly named Duke and Duchess of Sussex went on a attractive 2.6-mile-long carriage ride through the town of Windsor and down The Long Walk, where they celebrated their newlywed status with the public for the very first time.

"There's power in love", he boomed at a congregation that included Queen Elizabeth, senior royals and celebrities ranging from Oprah Winfrey to George Clooney and David Beckham.

Palace officials have been vague about Harry and Markle's honeymoon plans, but they are expected to soon take one. The wedding cake was flavored with Italian Amalfi lemon curd and British elderflower buttercream.

The happy couple picked just 200 guests to attend their evening reception.

The absence of the late princess will have been felt heavily on Harry's wedding day, but the 33-year-old royal found several sweet and poignant ways to pay tribute to her. Harry, who was just 12 when his mother died, added several other sentimental touches, from the flowers he picked to the gifts he presented to his new bride Meghan. Megan changed into another white gown, designed by Stella McCartney, and Harry exchanged his military uniform for a classic tux. Observers said there would be relief within the royal household that the ceremony went off without a hitch, following the uncertainty in the run-up to the big day over whether Markle's father would attend.

In another image Harry and Meghan are pictured with the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the bride's mother Doria Ragland and the young bridesmaids and pageboys, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

An estimated 2 billion people also tuned in to watch the wedding ceremony on television.

"I think she loved the fact that I was a British designer and working in a house such as Givenchy, which has its roots in a very classical, lovely style", Waight Keller said.

The newly anointed Duchess of Sussex has a new bio up on the Royal Family website - and it barely mentions her 15-year acting career, focusing instead on her charity and activism work. In past generations, members of the royal family usually married other members of European aristocracy.

"The skills on screen will carry over to the royal stage". "The idea that Harry allowed that and acknowledged it, it was the ideal blend between her culture and the royal culture".

Harry and Markle will fulfil their first royal engagement as a married couple Tuesday when they attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace to honour Prince Charles and his charity work.
