Prince Harry Kisses Meghan Markle

By Vanessa Obioha

Only 600 guests who are closely known to the newly-weds, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were invited to the history making royal wedding which took place Saturday at Windsor Castle.

They included A-List celebrities: media mogul Oprah Winfrey; international tennis superstar Serena Williams; football star David Beckham and his wife Victoria; Hollywood star George Clooney and his wife Amal; Idris Elba; Abigail Spencer; Priyanka Chopra; Pippa Middleton with husband James Matthews; Sabrina Dhowre; Caroline Greenwood and Will Greenwood as well as co-stars of the American TV series ‘Suits’, Patrick Adams and Gabriel Macht.

Other notable faces seen at the ceremony included TV host and comedian James Corden, and singer Elton John. A surprising visitor at the wedding is Sarah Ferguson, the former wife of Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

Due to the scandals that surrounded her divorce from the Duke of York, the former duchess was mostly uninvited to ceremonies of this capacity, notably the nuptial ceremony of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine.

Over 2,640 guests from charities the couple had worked with, including the 1200 members of the public, were also present at the wedding.
