May 19, 2018; Windsor, England, UK; Well-wishers along the wedding route for the Royal wedding at Windsor Castle.

Well, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially married.

The festivities started at 4 a.m. Eastern time (that's 9 a.m. in the U.K.) at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The actual ceremony went on pretty much without a hitch; the couple looked happy, the dress elegant, structural, gorgeous, and they mixed traditional and modern elements into the ceremony gracefully.

Many of the more stuffy traditions for Kate and William’s wedding were tossed out the window — probably because Harry isn’t set up to be the next king, and some of the tradition surrounding the Royal Family has cooled off a bit in recent years.

OK, here are the highlights.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS

The dress


The kiss


The romance 


The famous carriage procession through the town of Windsor


The diversity and multiculturalism 




The enormous crowd


And the whole family was there




(Some extra glamor shots because that’s what we're really here for, right?)
