People have noticed something heartbreaking about Meghan Markle's mom at the Royal Wedding
So it's all over; Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally sealed the deal and the UK has a new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The day was a joyous and monumental occasion, with it being seen as one of the most important in royal history.
While it may not have had the size of Will and Kate's audience, the ceremony was stunning and groundbreaking in equal measure. Whether it was the fact that there was a black pastor, a gospel choir or that Meghan walked herself part-way down the aisle, this wedding was seen as the most modern occasion in the often archaic and outdated family.
The wedding took place in the historic setting of Windsor Castle and was basked in the beautiful spring sunshine (a rarity in the UK). It was attended to by both A-listers and friends of the family, with Tom Hardy, Oprah, David Beckham and Serena Williams all being in attendance.
And, while Meghan's father didn't make an appearance, her mother was there to accompany her daughter on the big day.
Doria Ragland flew into the UK last minute and travelled with her daughter to the chapel. However, upon arriving, she was instructed to sit on her own during the ceremony - something that caused outrage on Twitter.
As one user pointed out: "Why is Meghan Markle's Mum sat on her own? Couldn't they have put the Queen with her? She looks more lonely than the remaining cast of Avengers 4."
While she may have been alone in the chapel, Doria could be seen weeping and smiling throughout the ceremony, which saw her daughter become part of one of the most famous families in the world.
Harry and Meghan were pronounced husband and wife at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in a ceremony that was officiated by the Dean of Windsor David Conner and the Arch Bishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who performed the newlywed’s vows.
After exchanging vows and being declared husband and wife, Harry and Meghan shared their first kiss in front of the public on the steps of St. George's Chapel.
Following the ceremony, the couple took part in a carriage procession in which they were carried through the small streets of Windsor and back to the castle. In a statement from Kensington Palace, it was said:
"They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.
"Following the service, there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and the guests from the congregation.
"Later that evening, the Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family."
The wedding was attended by 600 guests - a number which is small in comparison to Will and Kate's 1,900 guests. A group of 200 will attend the after-party, which will no doubt be a raucous and lively affair. Good luck to the latest additions to the royal famiy!
