LIVE: The wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry

Published by Emma Carton at 9:11am 19th May 2018. (Updated at 2:35pm 19th May 2018)

The eyes of the world have been on Windsor for the royal wedding.

Thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their big day.

600 guests were inside St George's Chapel to watch the ceremony, including George Clooney, the Beckhams and Sir Elton John.

Breaking with tradition, Meghan promised to love, honour and protect her husband, but chose not say the word obey.

Prince Charles walked her down the aisle to the waiting Harry, who, unlike his brother Prince William, will wear a wedding band.

They chose six bridesmaids and four page boys, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The newlyweds took a carriage tour of Windsor after the service, ahead of two separate receptions.

The Queen has given the couple the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Scroll through the live blog below to see all the highlights from the royal wedding.
