For me, it was the pageboy doing his Home Alone expression as he entered the church, and the Rev.

Also, the dignity and serenity of Meghan mum, on what must have been an overwhelming day.

Favourite photos include the one of David Beckaham -he scrubs up well.

Also, one of Charles walking out of the church with Camilla and a Doria.

I think over time I’ll remember most.

Meghan looking stunning throughout.
Doria, so composed.
Prince Charles stepping in to walk down the aisle.
The Kingdom Choir.

I loved the twin pageboys holding her train. So adorable!!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 20-May-18 08:44:03

...... but there were a lot of things going on so that may change! The cellist for example, so accomplished at such a young age. Sheku? Victoria Beckham 😀. But she looked so unhappy.

All the shock / hmm / confused faces during the FIRE outburst 😂
How beautiful and composed Doria was
Zara and Mike looking all real together

The cellist was amazing but he was BBC young musician of the year in 2016. I recognised his name as he's played on classic FM.

The pageboys were fantastic.

For me it was prince Charles, surprisingly. He did everything to put Meghan's mum and Meghan at ease, and was the epitome not friendly and welcoming and it summed up what a wedding is about.

MissMarplesKnitting Sun 20-May-18 08:48:47

Epitome OF friendly. Damn phone!

Shadow666 Sun 20-May-18 08:49:23

Also, I loved Meghan walking herself down the aisle. She looked so composed.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 20-May-18 08:49:43

The page boys were fantastic, did their job so well. And I love that they are 7 year olds called Brian and John. grin They can only be American so clearly from Meghans side.

Petalflowers Sun 20-May-18 08:51:02

I loved their names also. Brian is a name we rarely see in the Baby Name threads,

Shadow666 Sun 20-May-18 08:52:15

I think, and I may be wrong, but I think the page boys are the sons of the son of a former Canadian prime minister. So, maybe Canadian not American.

The celebs invited were so random. I wonder how they knew them all. I wish the Obamas had been there.

IStillMissBlockbuster Sun 20-May-18 08:52:44

Kitty Spencer - she looked absolutely stunning!
Amal a looney, loved that yellow outfit.
And Serena Williams' evening outfit was so gorgeous.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 20-May-18 08:53:40

That would make sense Shadow think Meghan was living in Toronto.

Grammar Sun 20-May-18 08:53:46

I thought Doria was the only member of Markle's family to be there?

MrsMozart Sun 20-May-18 08:53:49

Bridesmaids and page boys - all so beautifully behaved but not in a stilted way.

The bride amd groom.

Prince Charles being so kind and attentive in a wonderfully calm and understated way.

Doria. Elegant and beautiful. Can see where Meghan's smile came from.

The cellist.

The flowers.

The security people.

The horse riders (and drivers) who did such a beautiful calm job.

CheeseTheDay Sun 20-May-18 08:54:17

The bit when Mike Tindall was patting Zara's bump. I had to wonder if Baby Tindall was kicking!

Childrenofthesun Sun 20-May-18 08:54:18

The page boys too. Loved his "Wow!" face.
I've met loads of American Brians. Seems to be a popular name.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 20-May-18 08:54:31

Great typo Istill grin

Childrenofthesun Sun 20-May-18 08:55:04

Although PP is right, I think they are Canadian.

YouAndMeAreGoingToFallOut Sun 20-May-18 08:56:05

The page boys are the grandsons of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. So that explains the name Brian!

IfyouseeRitaMoreno Sun 20-May-18 08:56:56

This!

Shadow666 Sun 20-May-18 08:57:09

I was oddly pleased they invited Fergie. It was a big fuck you to the Daily Mail and their ramblings that she wasn’t invited.

QueenAravisOfArchenland Sun 20-May-18 08:57:20

The gap-toothed Mulrooney twins carrying Meghan's veil, and the expression on the one caught behind her when the trumpet fanfare sounded for her entrance.

Doria looking so lonely and tearful, but dignified.

Prince George looking adorkable in the train of littluns.

MaryWortleyMontagu Sun 20-May-18 08:57:52

They are Canadian. The former pm in question is Brian Mulroney and young Brian (his grandson) is named after him.

dayinlifeof Sun 20-May-18 08:59:53

The people who worked hard to organise it all and provide support.
Doria.
prince Charles.
