5 DETAILS FROM THE ROYAL WEDDING THAT KEPT US HOOKED!

Royal family of the United Kingdom witnessed the 16th wedding in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday and people across the globe sat glued to watch the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. For all those who were living under the rock till now, Prince Harry is the Grandson of The Queen Elizabeth II and the younger son of Prince Charles and Late Lady Diana. His bride, Meghan Markle is a (former) American actor who became famous for her role in the legal drama series Suits. Here are the five deets from this Dream wedding that we absolutely fell in love with:

Duke and Duchess of Sussex:

Well, the couple looked very much smitten throughout the wedding ceremony and broke many protocols of the royal family in their wake. Well, how they put it, everything's fair in Love and War... And this was definitely Love!!!

The Dress:

Meghan wore a Givenchy gown (sigh!) designed by Clare Waight Keller. Her veil train was specially hand embroidered on request with the flora of Commonwealth Countries. Markle wore the bandeau first worn by Queen Mary in 1932.

A Seat For Diana:

Prince William, his elder brother played the Best Man. But what totally teared us up was the vacant seat right next to Prince William that was left open as an homage to Lady Diana.

The Reverend:

Initially, the families were against the conjugal because of Meghan's African-American lineage (Probably why her father was not in attendance). However, the love triumphed over every obstacle. What was totally unexpected and absolutely won the social media over was The Most Rev Michael Bruce Curry, the African-American preacher who gave a passionate sermon in the true-blue merry style.

And Obviously, Priyanka Chopra in Attendance:

But our eyes were always upon our Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra who looked every way royal and elegant in her lilac suit with lavendar floral fascinator (Drooooool).... Although we could not spot her in the chapel during the exchange of vows, we were totally bowled over by the fact that PeeCee made it to the wedding as one of Markle's closest friends. Well, there's so much more to tell. But this is all for the day. What if we could not be present their due to our busy schedule, we definitely wish the newly weds a happy married life!
