Each moment of the Royal Wedding was significant: from the low key appearance by Queen Elizabeth, to the extensive celebrity attendee list that showed up to celebrate Meghan Markle's big day, to the gospel rendition of "This little light of mine" as the couple exited the church. Everything was executed to perfection in a glorious day for the United Kingdom. Which moment was your favorite one? 

 

The wedding took place at oppulent Windsor Castle. 1

It's the same chapel where Prince Charles and his wife Camila were wed, and where Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip want to be buried when they pass.

His brother, Prince William, married Kate Middleton in the much more majestic Westminister Abbey, where Prince Charles married Lady Diana.  However, in both these cases, we are talking about future Kings of the empire while Prince Harry is now the 6th in line of succesion to the throne.

The dress was spectacularly simple and super elegant, with a very conservative cut of sophistication. It was designed by Clare Keller, the first woman to ever lead Givenchy, and it was the best kept secret of the enitre event.

The veil was shorter than usual at Royal Weddings and it had flowers sewn into it, which represented the historical riches of the Commonwealth.

"I'm very lucky", said Prince Harry when he received the bride. 8

Prince Charles, the father of the groom, walked Meghan to the altar since her dad could not make the wedding due to health issues.

He didn't get bogged down in the usual pompous texts read in Royal Weddings, and instead delivered a very real and down-to-earth sermon that spoke to the couple's hearts and even quoted Martin Luther King Jr.

Curry's presence at the wedding was celebrated in social media. He was born in Chicago, is 53 years old, and is the first American to lead the Anglican Church.

Music was at the forefront of the ceremony. 11

Classical songs like "Ave Maria" where everpresent, but gospel renditions of "This little light of mine" y "Stand by me" got everyone on their feet.

However, 19 year old British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason was the true musical standout of the day.

Prince Harry designed it himself. The diamond was sourced from a conflict-free mine in Botswana and it is three carats. The rest of the diamonds are even more important, because they belonged to Lady Diana and were part of Prince Harry's private collection.

They looked wonderful and seemed excited to be a part of Meghan Markle's most important day, yet many in the social media world wondered if Kate's beige dress wasn't too close in tone to the bride's white Givenchy gown. What do you think?

Four white horses were chosen for this mission. They were the calmest and best behaved in the Royal mews, and this was imperative given the amount of people who would congregate around them. The carriage took the Duke and Duchess all the way to the reception.

The honey moon in Namibia will kick off in a few days, when the couple is done with the royal duties.

Cheers to a lifetime of love!
