Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their first-ever kiss as a married couple (photos)

The newlywed Duke and Duchess of Sussex delighted the crowd gathered outside St. George's Chapel when they shared their first kiss a betrothed couple. 

Kensington Palace shared a photo of their first kiss on Twitter, and the couple can be seen holding hands while kissing under the flowered arch. A video of the first kiss was shared on CNN.

As reported by People, Prince Harry and Markle didn't share their first kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palance, unlike Prince William and Catherine in 2011.

In 1981, Prince Charles and Diana also shared their first kiss as a married couple on the iconic balcony, but Harry and Markle's was no less exceptional. 

After sharing their special moment with the public, they departed from the Chapel for a carriage procession through Windsor and were seen waving at the crowds.

The couple had been dating since 2016 after a mutual friend introduced them to each other. They kept the relationship secret, and Harry announced in November 2016. 

They were engaged a year later, and Markle moved to London in December 2017 when she completed filming of the television show Suits in Toronto.
