The event we’ve been waiting for so long finally happened! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot on Saturday, and they are now officially a wife and a husband.

As a wedding gift, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth presented her grandson and his new wife with royal titles. Drumroll, please! Welcome new Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

At the evening reception, family members and numerous guests congratulated the newlyweds with the best wishes. Meghan Markle also gave a speech, which actually broke the royal etiquette. But the reason she did it totally justifies her action.

In fact, it’s the responsibility of a bride’s father to deliver a wedding speech, but amid her dad’s absence, Meghan did it on her own. As it was reported earlier, Thomas Markle couldn’t attend his daughter’s wedding due to the health issues. Nevertheless, according to TMZ, Mr. Markle keeps on recovering and watched the royal wedding on television.

My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.  I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.
