Prince Harry and Meghan looked happy and in love during the Royal Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are married in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle
The Royal Wedding gave me all the feels today. I didn’t expect to be as touched as I was, but I was crying and had goosebumps at points. It was inspiring, it was uplifting and that had everything to do with the love and electricity you could sense between Meghan and Harry. They kept looking at each other adoringly and they laughed at points. That made the Royal Wedding so much richer than it would have been, even with all the other elements in place. Here are some of my favorite moments.

When Harry lifted Meghan’s veil. Look at how they are looking at each other. Harry said to Meghan “You look amazing” and “I’m so lucky.”

When they were asked if they had any objections to the wedding they looked at each other and laughed!

After they both said “I will” they cracked up too!

Check out how they laughed up when Rev. Curry said “We got to get you all married”

I can’t even watch Meghan say her vows again without getting teary:

They exchanged rings:

Here’s the full wedding-vow video:

Then they had their first kiss outside the chapel. They’re in Windsor, not London, and aren’t going to kiss later today on the balcony of Buckingham Palace like Will and Kate and Diana and Charles.

    So happy for them! I just want to bask in the romance and splendor of the day because at midnight bump watch starts. Le sigh.

    • minx says:

      Oh, man, you’re right about the bump watch.

    • Masamf says:

      LOL, @Enough Already I already started, LOL. Nope, not waiting for midnight. It was a beautiful wedding, I’m glad it happened in my lifetime.

    • Milla says:

      I have zillion questions…
      Where is Chuck looking at?
      Why do they say Meghan when hee name is Rachel? Did she change it?
      Her mum looked so poised. His dad and Camilla looked bored… Am i wrong?
      Kate looked beautiful. And i almost teared up seeing Chelsy. Young love, must be really hard.
      Why didn’t Meghan wear Stella for the wedding? That givenchy is… Nope. It’s not even fitted.
      Did Harry really say you look amazing? Cos that’s like wow swoon moment, but I’m not sure…

      Overall, I did not watch it, but i saw many clips and photos. I loved the bride and the groom, they looked wonderful despite her dress. I didn’t care for Clooney or Beckhams, but Kate’s family looked regal, just like Kitty Spencer. Doria was… I almost started crying. So i basically wanted to cry for Doria and Chelsey. For different reasons, but still.. okay, sorry for the long rant. Hope we get more photos.

      • Bluthfan says:

        Rachel was said in one point during the vows.

        Chelsey looked like she spent 10 hard years partying and was paying for it. Man she looked rough. And tacky with that short skirt.

        Meghan’s wedding dress was gorgeous but it was clear that she’s lost some last minute weight and the dress was a bit loose.

        Kate looked matronly and bored and somehow smug which I will never get.

        The men in the Royal family were really engaged in the ceremony with smiles, nods, etc. in particular Charles and Prince Phillip. Even dud William looked like he was enjoying himself. The women looked bored and bitchy including the queen which was disappointing.

      • cindyp says:

        Chelsy looked like a hot mess doing a walk of shame the next morning.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      Ha! The bump watch started for me during the ceremony! There were at least 2x during the ceremony where something like the expansion of family and/or children was mentioned and both times, Meghan and Harry turned their heads to look at each other and smile. It made me wonder if she could be pregnant already.

      • Ari says:

        I am glad I wasn’t the only one. I had a few moment where I was like, “I wonder if they are already pregnant…”

      • Agenbiter says:

        Yes! In the first reference to children Harry definitely turned to smile at her, then looked forward again quickly like “Oops – Carry on, nothing to see here”
        Her reaction was more subtle, but she smiled as well.

  2. Maum says:

    Poor guy looked so nervous at the beginning- at one point he looked like he was going to faint!
    He seemed to relax as things went on.
    She was amazingly composed.

    • Lauren says:

      He cried, poor thing! And yes, she seemed very together. It was so sweet!

      • G says:

        I’m not sure if he was crying or wiping sweat off; he looked like he was extremely warm and about to pass out, particularly at the beginning!

    • Kelly says:

      After wiping off tears, he sort of fidgeted with his uniform. Then he was swaying and I also wondered if he was feeling dizzy. I concluded that he just has that much trouble standing still.

    • Milla says:

      She was his Xanax. She looked so calm and loving, like they are the only ones on the planet… Amazing.

  3. Enn says:

    Her vows were so sweet! Why didn’t she use his full name like Kate did? Is it because he’s not the heir?

    My husband and I just used our first names but we’re not royal so there’s that. 😂

    • Masamf says:

      It was said that Kate got confused over all the names because they’re so many. So these 2 decided to stick to just Harry and Meghan

      • Millennial says:

        That’s hilarious. I can totally relate though, I would stumble over all those middle names too.

      • Laurie says:

        I remember when Diana married Charles she stumbled over his names. It was sweet.

      • Kelly says:

        Didn’t Fergie switch around Andrew’s name and call him Philip first?

      • Rachel says:

        My husband has two middle names and goes by the second. It’s still hard for me if someone uses his first name. I get this moment of confusion about who they’re talking about, and I know it must show on my face. I worried about whether to use his first name or the name I’ve always called him when we said our vows. Guess which won.

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    I NEVER cry over weddings but this one has me teary eyed. They both were beaming with love. It was truly beautiful to see.

  5. She D says:

    Amazing! Incredibly reflective of both the bride and the groom! Those adoring looks though…swoon! I hope they have fun and relax more tonight. I would be exhausted! It took me a week after my wedding not to be dragging!

    • L84Tea says:

      I was swooning myself. I was actually teary during most of it. When she first got up there and he said to her, “you look amazing” and when he lifted her veil….I melted.

  6. mamacita says:

    wow again so beautiful. thank you celebitchy and kaiser for your lovely reporting. you can feel their love for sure.

  7. Beluga says:

    I got a bit teary! It’s so obvious they adore each other.

    And they were laughing because when they said “I will” you could hear a HUGE cheer from the crowd outside!

  8. Aud says:

    God it was so special. I’m still rewatching my favorite parts. They laughed after they said “I will” because the crowd outside cheered after each of them said it. It was amazing.

  9. Becks1 says:

    This wedding made me cry. Something about it was just very intimate and “real.” I loved it.

    • milgen says:

      I think a lot of it came down to the fact that courtiers backed off and let them do what they wanted. It was less stuffy and regimented than other royal weddings. Then there’s the fact that it wasn’t an arranged marriage. W&K’s wedding was also somewhat romantic given their long history together, but much of its soul was sucked away by all the protocol.

      • Lovisa says:

        Long history of Kate being a workshy, extreme doormat and being led on by William? Because you’re absolutely spot-on.

    • Natalie S says:

      Yes, there was open emotion in their faces. And it was lovely to see how much Doria and Harry love Meghan especially after this past week. And also see Harry’s relations be there for him.

      This felt like we got to look in on a family wedding for someone who is a royal rather than watch a stuffy royal wedding.

  10. milgen says:

    Prince Harry is a gentleman! Went back to the first celebitchy article about Harry possibly dating Meghan and got emotional. Back then it was put as just a passing fancy if at all true. It’s wonderful to see a mixed-race (black) woman loved so publicly with her black mother, the greatest of all time and Oprah looking on. It was beautiful. Black Girl Magic all around.

  11. PlayItAgain says:

    They are flippin’ adorable! I’m so happy for them. Lord, I hope they make it.

  12. Guest says:

    I got a little teary eyed. It was really sweet and romantic. Harry definitely was wearing his emotions today. Meghan looked really beautiful.

  13. Ang says:

    She’s already pregnant

    • G says:

      Yes, I think so too! It’s not that she looks like she has a bump because she absolutely doesn’t, just a feeling I get from them…I don’t know!

    • sunsetsnow81 says:

      I feel bad for typing this but I think so too!

      • Elizabeth R says:

        Ok, there was something in the service that gave me that feeling too! They way they looked at each other when the minister mentioned something about having kids – almost like they had a secret? May be reading too much into it….but it got my attention.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      Oh man, I said the same thing above before I scrolled down. I’m on the “already pregnant” train with you guys for the exact reason Elizabeth R mentioned.

  14. Mich says:

    I loved this wedding. Every single bit of it. It was real, joyous and reflective of who they are as individuals and as a couple. One for the ages.

  15. C. Remm says:

    I’ve watched about 10 royal weddings over the time, but I never reacted in the way I did today. I cried the first time, when Serena was shown, this really touched me and when Meghan started her walk down the aisle and the music and this singer sang I was completely in tears. Wonderful! Absolutely wonderful! That was a terrific wedding.

  16. Jenns says:

    I’m a total cynic who hates wedding and even I was grinning ear to ear watching these two. Everything is sh*t right now, so seeing them so happy and in love warmed my heart.

    • Tonya says:

      Me too…I’m still crying just thinking about the wedding…I wish them the best!!!!

  17. vicsy says:

    GREAT POST!!!! :))))) Thank you!!!

  18. minx says:

    Besides being in love they seem to have a real rapport with each other. Those are two different things.

  19. IlsaLund says:

    I cried when the choir sang Stand by Me….it was so touching. Such a beautiful wedding….they’re so in love.

  20. Mela says:


    Multi cultural wedding

    Inter racial couple clearly in love

    This is the future

    I loved it

  21. City Girl says:

    Beautiful lovely wedding.

    • Mela says:

      Gotta give it up to the BRF for putting on such a multi cultural and inclusive wedding

      They are historically so uptight and how they wronged Diana..this was redeeming and gave me hope for human kind

  22. JustWondering says:

    Not a Royal Family’s fan, but I love this pairing so much! <3

  23. Abby says:

    I love their wedding so much! <3

  24. liriel says:

    I’m sorry, dress was bad the wedding nice but seriously aren’t people on here over the top?

  25. Anare says:

    The way Harry would look at her was just so touching. So in love. He just adores her. She looked a little nervous early on but then seemed to relax and I thought she was beaming. They are a perfect couple honestly!

    • Jayna says:

      He not only adores her, he admires her. It’s obvious he is proud to be with her and proud of her. I think that shows.

  26. Egla says:

    He CRIED. It was so sweet of him. There is no shortage of love there that’s for sure. It seemed to me that this day was more for Harry than for Meghan (don’t know how to express it). Like everybody was there to make him happy. Anyway congrats to them and I really hope that this is forever.

  27. Bc says:

    I’m so happy for them. What an amazing day. *insert endless heart emojis*

  28. TheOriginalMia says:

    Their love for each other is beautiful. I knew she was special when he released that letter, but before that, it was clear something had changed with Harry. He was more open. He seemed to grow before our eyes. When I saw them at Invictus, I finally got it. That’s what real love gives you. Strength, support, confidence. It’s a beautiful thing. I wish them all the happiness.

  29. NLopez says:

    I love the way Harry and Meghan look at each other. Now that’s how I want a man to look at me one day. I cried when Diana’s sister read her part, I cried when Doria cried, & I cried tears of joy for 2 people I don’t even know. I wish them every happiness. Thanks Kaiser for this open thread.

  30. Nibbi says:

    Total cynic here but the wedding warmed my heart too. I totally look askance at monarchy, inherited privilege, stuffery, snobbery of all kinds… but have always had a soft spot for Harry. (That young boy, walking with his head bowed after his mother’s casket… ) What got me was how REAL they were (are.) They are clearly very much in love. Everything was so much more human and joyful than, it seems, we’re used to seeing from the British royals. And the gospel choir??! and that gorgeous young cellist?? and her beautiful, sweet, discreet, proud mother? and OPRAH?! and she was so radiant and glowing despite all the drama of the past week and they seemed truly united. sighhhhh worlds of best wishes you crazy kids 🙂 and yeah the monarchy suddenly seems far more modern and even a whiff more relevant now

  31. Spkgrl says:

    Guys… You know she’s an actress, right…?
    Of course it was a lovely ceremony, and I truly wish them both all the best <3 But of course she was going to have the greatest and happiest face ever.

  32. VeronicaLodge says:

    MM is stunning. The connection between her and Henry is pure love. They adore each other, it’s obvious.
