Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wave to delighted fans in royal procession after tying the knot

The bride and groom were cheered on as they were whisked away for a procession around Windsor in their carriage.


The couple couldn't stop smiling as they left the modern ceremony to the delight of cheering crowds who have been waiting in Windsor all week for a glimpse of the Royal kiss.

The newlyweds held hands and beamed at each other as the carriage pulled up to the chapel.

Excitement spilled over as the bride and groom shared a second tender kiss after having their first on the steps of St George's.

Meghan had waved at the jubilant crowd as her and Harry set off for the 30-minute journey.




The streets were lined with Union Jack bunting as the couple were pulled by horses in the Ascot Landau Carriage.

Ascot Landaus are the name of five open-topped carriages kept by the Royal Mews – with one featured in the carriage procession following Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding, in 2011.



 


Well-wishers waved banners as they caught a glimpse of the couple – with some queuing overnight for a chance to see the newlyweds on their big day.

Up to 150,000 people descended on Windsor's Long Walk as Harry and Meghan made their first appearance as a married couple.



A sea of banners were seen as Royal fans draped in Union Jacks smiled at Meghan and chanted her name.

The bride looked surprised with the reaction as the carriage travelled through Castle Hill.

They were driven along the High Street and into Windsor town centre before returning along the picturesque Long Walk for their reception.

The very modern wedding has seen 1,200 public invitees able to watch the arrival and departure of the bride and groom.


Charity workers, school children, royal household members and Windsor residents are among those invited.

The Ascot Landau was commissioned in 1830 by Prince Adolphs, The Duke of Cambridge, and presented as a gift to Queen Mary in 1920.

It was recently used at Windsor Horse Show in 2016, for The Queen's 90th Birthday celebrations.

Kate and Wills travelled in the open-topped 1902 State Landeu on their wedding day, as did Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.
