As Meghan Markle stepped out of the Royal chariot, a collective gasp was felt across the world. A timid attempt at a Royal wave was offset against her stunning Givenchy wedding gown as she walked towards the palatial doors of Windsor Castle to marry her Prince. For that moment, all controversy was forgotten; All markings of a “black”, “divorced” “commoner” disappeared, all questions of a dysfunctional family gone, all bruises of an absent father a back-thought. For in this moment – in all its spectacular fanfare – it’s about two people in love. You are currently witnessing the most-watched Royal wedding in history – one for the record books – a tale of a party-boy Prince and his American actress some deemed unworthy. Tonight she proves them wrong.

Here are the first pictures and footage of The Royal Wedding.
