WINDSOR: There was silence along the Long Walk in Windsor as thousands of well-wishers listened to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say their vows—then the crowd erupted into cheers and popped prosecco corks as they were declared husband and wife, reports AFP.

Crowds of colourful royal enthusiasts from around the world flocked to the historic British town on Saturday, many of them gathering on the tree-lined avenue leading up to the castle.

People from as far afield as Canada, Australia and the Philippines waved Union Jack flags, donned tiaras, royal t-shirts hats and scarves, cheering and dancing as they watched the ceremony on big screens.

“She looks beautiful—it’s a timeless dress,” said Denise Show, 46, from southeast England, as Markle emerged in a white sculpted gown with a long veil stretching out behind her.

When the choir in St George’s Chapel sang “Stand by Me”, the crowds outside joined in. The Long Walk was transformed into a sea of Union Jack flags when the national anthem played.

“It’s like a dream,” said Theodora Torres, 71, who came from Los Angeles with her husband.

Harry and Meghan drew huge cheers when they went past in an open-topped horse-drawn carriage after the wedding, escorted by soldiers in gleaming ceremonial uniforms.
