Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared a number of unseen pictures from their wedding album, including snaps of the late Queen at the event, in their Netflix series.
Photographs show the couple cutting their cake, the Duke of Sussex giving a speech while the Duchess looked on and her mother Doria Ragland cheering next to Camilla and Prince William at Windsor Castle.
Another image shows the late Queen beaming and one shows the Princess of Wales at the drinks reception speaking to another guest.
The couple revealed the series of images from the May 2018 event in their bombshell Netflix series – the final three hour-long episodes of which were released today.
There were extensive unseen images of the event shared in the Netflix series, including snaps of members of the Royal Family after the ceremony.
Elsewhere, Prince Harry can be seen offering Doria a kiss on the cheek after the ceremony, while another image shows Charles and Meghan greeting one another.
There were also a number of pictures from the drinks reception which followed at Windsor Castle.
One shows Sir Elton John performing on a piano for the crowd which includes Meghan’s mother Doria.
Another photograph shows the couple apparently offering a brief speech to the guests at the event. They can be seen cutting their wedding cake in another snap.
Photographs also showed other members of the Royal Family at the event, including the Queen and Kate, who can be seen chatting to another guest.
Further snaps were from the wedding reception party at Frogmore House.
In the fourth show, the Duchess of Sussex, 41, spoke about how she went ‘into a state of calm’ on the morning of her wedding.
She said: ‘All I wanted was a mimosa and a croissant and play the song “going to the chapel” and that’s what I did. It was so great.’
‘I went into this really calm space, I don’t know how I was so calm. I look back and I think, how was I so calm.’
She then went on to discuss how King Charles came to walk her down the aisle.
Retired Hollywood lighting director Thomas Markle, 78, didn’t attend the couple’s historic nuptials at St George’s Chapel in Windsor after suffering two heart attacks in California in the weeks preceding it.
She said: ‘Harry’s dad is very charming and I said to him like, “I’ve lost my dad in this”, so him as my father-in-law was really important to me, so I asked him to walk me down the aisle and he said yes.’
She told herself ‘take a deep breath and keep going’ as she walked down the aisle, and described how her and Harry’s deep connection helped.
Meghan later added: ‘H [Harry] and I are really, really good at finding each other in the chaos. When we find each other, reconnect, it’s like, “It’s you, it’s you”.
‘It’s not that the rest of it doesn’t matter, but the rest of it feels temporary.’
Wedding footage, much of it in black and white, plays over the Duchess speaking, with Harry asked what he thought when he first cast eyes on his bride.
The prince says: ‘Lucky me, look what I got’.
Meanwhile Meghan also offered a glimpse into the speech she made at her wedding to Prince Harry in the final episode of her docuseries.
The Duchess concluded the couple’s explosive Netflix documentary by reading out part of the speech she gave the night of their wedding in May 2018.
Sitting next to Harry, she explained that she shared with their guests the story of a ‘modern fairytale’ between a ‘girl from LA and a boy from London… some people called a prince’.
In the scene, Meghan says: ‘I gave a speech the night of our wedding, which is atypical for a bride in the UK, I think?’, to which Harry responds: ‘Very.’
‘I have it on my phone. I can read it to you. Should I read it?,’ she asks, with Harry replying: ‘From your phone?’, before encouraging her to ‘try’.
The Duchess begins: ‘On to the crux of why I wanted to speak tonight. First of all, it’s been a while,’ she says, before adding: ‘That got a big laugh.’
Continuing with her speech, she says: ‘But mostly I wanted to share a story. A story that I wrote about the man that I love and the way that we met. Let’s call this a modern fairy tale.
‘Once upon a time, there was a girl from LA. Some people called her an actress. And there was a guy from London. Some people called him a prince.
‘All of those people didn’t fully get it, because this is the love story of a boy and girl who were meant to be together.
‘They meet on July 3rd, 2016, in London. And they giggle endlessly. So the next day they have their second date and he brings her cupcakes because it’s 4th July.
‘”A bittersweet celebration”, he says. “Ironic really.” Her country’s independence from his country. Yet in this moment, they know they don’t want to be independent of each other.
‘And after a month of long-distance courtship, they settle into the quiet of Botswana. And amidst whatever momentary worries that creep in, they look at each other and think, “Whatever, world, we’re in”.
‘They would love, and garden, and travel, and laugh, and rack up more air miles than any couple could have. And when the tides were rough, they squeezed each other tighter.
‘”Nothing can break us”, they’d say. “For this love, she was a fighter.” I appreciate, respect and honour you, my treasure, for the family we will create, and our love story that will last for ever.
‘So I ask you to raise a glass to the astounding assurance that now life begins, and the everlasting knowing that, above all, love wins,’ the mother-of-two concluded.
In a clip about the 2018 reception Meghan said: ‘I just really wanted the music to be fun. Even our first dance.’
Meanwhile other photographs reveal the extraordinary fireworks display which guests were treated to in the grounds of Frogmore.
She turns to her husband and asks: ‘Song of 1,000 Dances? A thousand dances? I always get it wrong.’
The duchess sings lyrics from the 60s soul hit Land Of A Thousand Dances, which the couple chose for their first dance.
It is the first time they have publicly acknowledged which tune they went for.
Initial reports suggested it was Whitney Houston’s hit I Wanna Dance With Somebody, after Meghan referred to it as her ‘happy song’ in a 2016 magazine interview.
But the Finding Freedom biography later contradicted earlier reports by claiming the first dance took place to Wilson Pickett’s 1968 track ‘I’m in Love’.
The Sussexes’ six-part show – which forms part of their multimillion-pound deal with Netflix – has become the streaming giant’s most-watched documentary in a premiere week, debuting with 81.55million hours viewed.
The initial tranche covered the couple’s courtship and romance, but many were left deeply unhappy about the programme’s full-on assault on the late Queen’s Commonwealth legacy, with some saying it seemed as if the couple want to ‘bring down the monarchy’.
Harry also let rip with a string of sly digs at his family, particularly his father and brother, including the suggestion that they had married not for love but to a woman who fitted ‘the mould’.
The duke also said members of his family questioned why Meghan needed more protection from the media than their wives had been given, but that they failed to grasp the ‘race element’.
The claims made in the trailer were quickly declared by royal experts as ‘nonsense’, while one commentator said the series was clearly a ‘form of revenge’.
In one clip, Meghan’s British privacy lawyer Jenny Afia insisted she had seen evidence of the conspiracy against the Duchess before Lucy Fraser – real name Lucy Meadmore – a former PR manager who was a mystery figure until a week ago, says ‘Meg became this scapegoat for the Palace’.
The Duchess herself also suggested she was made a scapegoat, adding: ‘You would see it play out. A story about someone in the family would pop up for a minute, and they’d go: ‘We’ve got to make that go away’.’
