Billions of people watched in awe as Meghan Markle walked down the aisle to marry Prince Harry (6th in line to the throne) last Sat morning.



The couple would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations on Saturday, Kensington Palace said. "Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits," the statement added.

The pictures, taken by Alexi Lubomirski, include a group photograph with bridesmaids and close family, including their parents and the Queen. Mr Lubomirski, who also took the couple's official engagement pictures, said it had been an "incredible honour" to document the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's "inspiring journey of love."

Thousands of well-wishers gathered in Windsor as Prince Harry and Meghan married in St George's Chapel on Saturday afternoon. More than 110,000 people filled the town's streets with about 67,000 train trips made in and out of Windsor's two stations on Saturday, according to the council.



Meghan's pure white, boat neck gown was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy.

A five meter-long white silk veil - which covered her face as she entered the chapel - included embroidered floral detail representing all 53 countries of the Commonwealth. This was kept in place by Queen Mary's diamond encrusted bandeau tiara, loaned to her by the Queen.

Kiwi baker Isaac Adams was the head baker for the centrepiece creation on their wedding day. Adams's team created a layered organic lemon and elderflower cake for the big occasion. The cake was designed to incorporate "the bright flavours of spring, " and ingredients included 200 Amalfi lemons and 10 bottles of elderflower cordial from Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate.



The cake was decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, mainly British and in season, including peonies (the bride's favourite) and roses.

As a member of the royal family, Meghan now has an official place on the Royal Family website, which details her work for a number of charitable causes. "I am proud to be a woman and a feminist," the new Duchess of Sussex said on the site.
