Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry at Windsor Castle

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from the wedding day of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, (CL) and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

Harry and Meghan said they were "delighted" with the photographs, and felt "so lucky" to have shared their big day with the thousands gathered in Windsor.

"The Duke and Duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding", said Kensington Palace officials on Monday.

In one of the wedding photographs taken by Alexi Lubomirski, the newlyweds are shown in a romantic pose on the east terrace of Windsor Castle still basking in the excitement of their wedding.

Another photo, also taken at Windsor Castle, is a little less formal with just the couple and the children.

The estimated 29.2 million viewers for Saturday's ceremony exceed the number for the 2011 wedding of Harry's brother Prince William to Kate Middleton, which was watched by 22.8 million people. Others in photo from left, back row, Brian Mulroney, Remi Litt, Rylan Litt, Jasper Dyer, Prince George, Ivy Mulroney, John Mulroney; front row, Zalie Warren, Princess Charlotte, Florence van Cutsem.

With their guests able to let their hair down, the couple chose a more upbeat, albeit still loving, song as their first dance as a married pair. "Having taken Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's engagement photos, it brings me such joy to be able to witness again, the next chapter in this wonderful love story". The event, hosted by the groom's father, Prince Charles, began at 7 p.m. and reduced the royal guest list to about 200 closer friends. Elton John performed at their lunchtime reception for the star-studded crowd.
