The official wedding portraits of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are here and they are next level adorable

After exchanging vows to love and to cherish "till death us do part", Prince Harry (33), sixth-in-line to the British throne, placed a ring of Welsh gold on Markle's finger before a congregation including Queen Elizabeth, senior royals, and celebrities including United States media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

The profile for the 36-year-old was put up on Royal.uk, which is run by Buckingham Palace, after Saturday's royal wedding at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The designer of Markle's deceptively simple wedding gown and elaborate veil said Sunday that she received the special commission in early January and managed to keep it secret not only from the inquisitive British press, but from her family. The sweeping 5-meter train was carried by 7-year-old pageboys John and Brian Mulroney, the twin sons of one of Meghan's best friends.

The gorgeous bride, who was escorted down the aisle by Prince Charles, stunned in a gorgeous Givenchy boatneck gown, a Queen Mary tiara and Cartier jewelry.

Markle's father, Thomas, was too ill to attend the ceremony, having reportedly undergone heart surgery this week. "I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness".

African-American Karen Long, who was among the crowds in Windsor listening as the ceremony was relayed on loudspeakers, was one of those who appreciated the bishop's fiery address.

Large crowds turned out in bright sunshine to see them driven around Windsor afterwards in a horse-drawn carriage.

"It was handsome, to be part of history, to be part of history, to see that up close like that. She looks absolutely stunning".

Markle's first-ever role was in 2002 as a nurse on "General Hospital", she made a brief stint as a "briefcase girl" on the game show "Deal or no Deal" before appearing on the TV show "Fringe".

Ms Waight Keller said she will give her final design sketches to Meghan as a keepsake. The newlyweds will also be officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after Queen Elizabeth bestowed those titles on them.

Palace officials have been vague about Harry and Markle's honeymoon plans, but they are expected to take a honeymoon in the near future.

Elton John performed at the reception in Windsor Castle, where the canapes included Scottish langoustines, British asparagus and Windsor lamb.

The happy couple picked just 200 guests to attend their evening reception.

An estimated 2 billion people also tuned in to watch the wedding ceremony on television.

"My baby looks handsome and she looks very happy".

"I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and happiness", he added. The duchess had changed into a Stella McCartney dress while the duke wore black tie. In past generations, members of the royal family usually married other members of European aristocracy. "So when she's on parade with the rest of the royal family, she will have it down to a T".

Harry is partial to travelling in Africa, so it's possible their destination may be there.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will delay heading off for their honeymoon, instead attending a birthday party for his father Prince Charles just days after marrying in a ground-breaking ceremony that blended the modern with the traditional.
