Did you know? The wedding took place May 19, 2018 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom. The cost of the event was approximately $45 million, most of which went to pay for the elaborate security provided for the newlyweds. The British Royal family, generously picked up the tab.

The bride’s full given name is Rachel Meghan Markle. This is her second marriage, having been married to film producer, Trevor Engleson. She has two dogs and is a distant relative of both Winston Churchill and William Shakespeare! The groom is, of course, a member of the British Royal Family in good standing. The couple, following their marriage and extensive honeymoon travel, now reside in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington. Before the wedding Harry and Meghan were granted new royal titles, courtesy of Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth ll. They became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, respectively.
