These Photos Of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Quiet, Shared Moments At The Wedding Are SO Sweet
There was certainly no shortage of adorable moments between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their wedding on Saturday morning, and I may have gotten a little choked up, even. As soon as Harry laid eyes on the now-Duchess of Sussex upon her appearance at the church, he was clearly in awe of his wife-to-be in her stunning white gown, which pretty much melted the hearts of everyone in the Twittersphere. But there were many more tender moments between the couple throughout the ceremony — and the photos of all their shared moments during the royal wedding will likely bring you to tears all over again.
Despite the major public and media focus aimed at Meghan and Harry's nuptials — it is a royal wedding, after all — there were still plenty of private moments for the couple to share; even as the entire world was watching and abuzz with commentary. And if seeing the nuptial celebration once wasn't enough (and why oh why would it be?), here are some of the loveliest shared moments between the royal newlyweds at the ceremony. Because you know you totally want to cry in achingly romantic glee all over again — while (maybe just a little) enviously reviewing your love, relationship, and life choices ad infinitum. Because after this, it's pretty certain that Harry's got that bar for how-to-be-the-most-romantic-groom-ever leveraged pretty high.

As she joined him at the altar, he whispered, "you look amazing," and pretty much all of Twitter sobbed in the throes of romantic overwhelm.

There’s no denying the love, genuine joy, and deep affection between the royal newlyweds here.

I mean, seriously — this is just so lovely. If a picture can say a thousand words, this one says it all.
Whether you're a loyal royal aficionado, or more of a casual observer, there's no doubt that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is historic in every possible way. The love and sheer joy shared by the couple, in addition to the empty seat Harry left for his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, at the ceremony — in a quiet and beautiful tribute to her memory — all made for a genuinely moving and beautiful celebration.
