Sure, celebs like Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham and Serena Williams, along with members of the royal family including Queen Elizabeth and Prince William, definitely aren’t the faces we’re used to seeing at weddings, but Saturday’s ceremony proved that at the end of the day, it’s all about love (and a few laughs).
From the couple getting the giggles at the altar to Meghan’s mom becoming emotional while taking in her daughter’s big day, the ceremony was full of familiar moments. Check it out below:
Harry Got Nervous
Harry put on a brave face and his best smile when arriving at the Chapel with his best man, Prince William, but once inside and waiting for his beautiful bride, he was clearly feeling the nerves!
Kids will be kids, and this one will forever be known for his adorably goofy smile as he walked behind Meghan into the chapel. Seven-year-old twins Brian and John Mulroney, the sons of Meghan’s best friend, Jessica Mulroney, held on to the bride’s five meters long silk tulle veil — and clearly had fun doing it.
Everyone Got the Giggles — and Cheered for the Couple
Someone always gets the giggles, and at this wedding, it was all of the guests! Royals and celebs alike couldn’t help but let out a chuckle as the pair read their intentions at the start of the ceremony, or cheer for the duo’s big day.
After Meghan’s dad was forced to undergo surgery in Mexico and unable to travel to the royal wedding, the world was left with questions about who would walk her down the aisle. The actress quickly decided that Harry’s father, Prince Charles, would walk her through the Quire aisle. Meghan thus became the first royal bride to walk down (part of) the aisle herself in U.K. history.
Harry Made a Sly Comment — But Also Delivered a Dashing Wink
The world was watching the couple at the altar, but even Harry on his wedding day is still Harry. The prince had people wondering what he said to Meghan, with some thinking he told her, “I’m so lucky,” while others thinking he said, “I miss you.”
Still others quipped that Harry declared, “I’m sh**ing it.”
The Couple’s First Kiss as Husband and Wife
Meghan and Harry didn’t share their first kiss after exchanging their vows, instead waiting until they exited the chapel to share a sweet smooch in front of the thousands of fans waiting outside.
Meghan’s “Oh My God” Moment During Their Carriage Ride
The pair then boarded a horse-drawn carriage as they paraded around Windsor, waving to those gathered around the city. It wasn’t until the carriage neared the end of its procession that Meghan appeared to realize the enormity of the day and adorably raised her hand to her heart and let out a big “Oh my god.”
