It's finally here and we're tearing up almost as much as Meghan Markle's mom at the royal wedding! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now husband and wife (and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!), and we're not ashamed to admit that more than a couple of moments had us reaching for the Kleenex to wipe an emotional tear or two off our cheeks. 

  • Just look how happy Harry was on the morning of his wedding day!

    He arrived at Windsor Castle on foot, accompanied by his big brother and best man, Prince William. The look on his face honestly said it all -- absolutely nothing could wipe that smile off his face.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to forgo tradition with their wedding party, and even included Meghan's best friend's kids in their big day. The bridesmaids are Harry's goddaughters, Miss Florence van Cutsem, 3, and Miss Zalie Warren, 2, Meghan's goddaughters, Miss Remi Litt, 6, Miss Rylan Litt, 7, and Meghan's best friend's daughter, Miss Ivy Mulroney, 4. The page boys joining George consisted of Harry's godson, Master Jasper Dyer, 6, and Ivy Mulroney's brothers, Master Brian Mulroney, 7, and Master John Mulroney, 7.

  • The kids basically stole the show though.

    Especially Princess Charlotte and her little wave to the crowd. We can't even with that angel child. 

  • Once inside St. George's Chapel, we loved the sweet family moment when Prince Charles walked Meghan down the aisle.

    After a drama-filled week, Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, was ultimately unable to attend the wedding and walk his daughter due to health reasons. Making this moment between Meghan and her new father-in-law even sweeter was that Thomas said that he was "honored and grateful" that Charles stepped up to the plate. 

  • And when Harry finally got to say a word to his bride? Our hearts absolutely melted when we found out what he was saying. 

    "You look amazing. I'm so lucky." 

  • Meanwhile, Doria Ragland was giving us all the feels as she fought back tears for her daughter.

    Meghan Markle's mom was so proud of her that there were times she had to look away to keep from becoming overcome by emotion. We feel you, mama! 


  • And of course their kiss as husband and wife took our breath away.

    We were disappointed when we heard that Harry and Meghan wouldn't share the traditional post-wedding kiss from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, but they more than made up for it with this sweet moment on the steps of Windsor Castle.

  • Congrats again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

    The wedding was stunning, but it was the heart and soul in it that really got to us. We're not crying, you're crying!
