'I am proud to be a feminist' - Will Meghan shake-up Britain's royals?

'I am proud to be a feminist' - Will Meghan shake-up Britain's royals?

But they are putting their honeymoon on hold.

This morning, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were photographed leaving Windsor Castle to head home to Kensington Palace in London, which means the Royal Wedding weekend is officially over.

Harry and Meghan tied the knot in a ceremony at Windsor Castle, where they were greeted by around 100,000 people lining the streets.

Each time the Dean of Windsor made mention of family, children and the "delight and tenderness of sexual union" Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, exchanged looks that were enough to set Twitter tongues wagging.

He paid tribute to how Meghan, 36, has dealt with the extremely hard week leading up to her wedding, which saw her dad drop out of the wedding to undergo heart surgery.

Harry, looking nervous, appeared to say: "Thanks Pa" to his father, and "You look incredible!" to his beaming bride.

"Instead of delaying the big moment, which can cause clumsiness or nerves, they kissed as soon as they appeared", she said. "Fantastic to experience it as a guest and even more incredible to experience it as a photographer". To others, it was an irrelevance or a mild distraction from the schism of Brexit, which has deeply divided the United Kingdom.

The bio also says that the Los Angeles native was born "Meghan Markle", when in fact her given name at birth was Rachel, as referenced in her wedding ceremony on Saturday, May 19.

Air traffic controllers for the nearby Heathrow Airport, one of the world's busiest, closed the airspace over Windsor for the 15 minutes before the ceremony.

Among the raft of celebrity guests were James Corden, British host of the American TV chat show "The Late Late Show", tennis ace Serena Williams, British actor Idris Elba along with two of Harry's ex-girlfriends and the siblings of Harry's late mother Princess Diana.

The prominent display of the ring, which Diana wore often, was one more sign of the royal couple's desire to honour Harry's late mother, who died in a Paris vehicle crash in 1997.

For the couple's private evening reception, the Duchess of Sussex changed into a lily white, silk crepe halter-neck dress designed by Stella McCartney. Visitors had to pass through police search points set up around the castle.

Markle's father, Thomas Markle (73), a former lighting director for TV soaps and sitcoms, pulled out of the ceremony this week, telling USA celebrity website TMZ he had had heart surgery.

"My baby looks handsome and she looks very happy".

Harry and Meghan will not immediately leave for a honeymoon and will carry out their first official engagement as husband and wife next week.

The newlyweds left this morning after the Queen returned from church service, Hello reports, which makes them basically like every other couple who politely waits for their grandmother to return home to thank her for hosting them for the weekend before leaving-except in this case it was for hosting a huge royal wedding at her house, but you know.
