The moment the world has waited for has finally arrived. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchanged their vows and were officially announced as husband and wife. 

The ceremony took place at St. George's Chapel on Windsor grounds, and some of the names on the guest list included Idris Elba, Oprah Winfrey, and the Beckhams. 

Markle's father would have walked the 36-year-old former actress down the aisle but couldn't attend the ceremony due to a health crisis he suffered on Thursday. 

Markle wished her father the best for his recovery. In his absence, Prince Charles walked the glowing bride down the aisle.
