LONDON — Tradition? Who cares about tradition? The only thing that matters is Britain’s Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle got hitched on Saturday (May 19), and they cemented their nuptials with a canoodle on the outside steps of Windsor’s St. George’s Chapel. They’re now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. As anticipated, the ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. Thanks to Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, Meghan stole the show in an elegant white gown that featured a 16-foot veil and an open bateau neckline. She then broke tradition by sauntering halfway down the aisle unchaperoned, perhaps to concoct a proclamation that’s consistent with her feminist principles.

That wasn’t the only surprise.

Chicago-based bishop Michael Curry raised eyebrows with a fiery oration that goes against the paradigmatic conservatism of a British royal wedding. Moments later, Harry and Meghan shocked many with their selection of Ben E. King’s classic “Stand by Me” as the wedding anthem, performed by a gospel choir.

Oprah Winfrey, David Beckham and George Clooney were among the many big names in attendance. However, Meghan’s dad, Thomas Markle, couldn’t make it. Instead, he decided to stay in California to recover from heart surgery. “My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy,” Thomas told TMZ.

“I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.”

Congrats Harry and Meghan!

Now it’s time to start making royal babies.

  4. Really beautiful.. Meghan was stunning …her mom expression….I teared up. Her dad, sister and brother represent all that is wrong and rachet in America. How could you not set aside your differences and support your daughter and sister. Deplorable

  5. Megan’s Gown was perfect, the Veil was without a doubt quite remarkable. When I made my Nieces Gown and Veil I sewed lace both on the hemline of her Gown as well as around the edge of her Veil. God Bless Them.

  9. Way too contemporary for my taste. A gospel choir? Really? And that Plain-Jane gown? Give me that 25-foot long train on Diana’s wedding gown anyday of the week over what Markle was wearing. To think that was Givenchy.

    I only wish that her mother wasn’t sitting there very alone. A good friend or other relative would have been a lovely addition.
