5.19.18: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are Officially Married [PHOTOS / VIDEOS]

Happy Royal Wedding Day!

Today is a beautifully romantic and historic day. Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle, an American biracial actress, model and humanitarian at 12PM (Local Time) 7AM EST. Live coverage will begin at various times on various websites and networks. CBS will begin coverage at 4AM.

This historic day has been a journey full of love, obstacles, naysayers, opportunists, racists, tabloid journalism and right back to love. Something or someone always seemed to try to cause a wedge between Prince Harry and Meghan's happiness. However, they've overcome all the BS folks have tried to dish at them. This leads us to today.

Meghan Markle will become a Black Princess from America. Her official royal title will be, Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex.

Wishing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a blissful and blessed wedding day!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding was a beautiful showing of love. The way the two beamed at each other was breathtakingly romantic. It was truly a real-life fairytale. I was crying like a fool. It was such an emotional and touching wedding.

Prince Harry and Megan Markle invited Bishop Michael Curry to speak. He took the British aristocrats to church! It was a sight to behold. The look on some of their faces were epic.

Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir performed "Stand By Me" and again, showed  the amazing diversity that was incorporated into the royal wedding. This was a royal wedding the British had never witnessed. It was a glorious moment.

And the stellar young cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason was magnificent. At 19, he has mastered his craft and he won a plethora of new fans today...including me.

Prince Harry and Prince William were both very handsome. And I have to say, Prince Harry has a walk on him!

Watching Prince Charles accompany Meghan Markle down the aisle, after she reached the Quire, was a touching moment. Much respect to Prince Charles for welcoming Meghan into the royal family in such a emotional and momentous way.

Proud Mom!

The Wedding Cake

The wedding cake was designed by Claire Ptak and features elderflower syrup made at the Queen's residence in Sandringham from the estate's own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple.

A filling made from Amalfi lemon curd and elderflower buttercream ties all the elements together. The cake is decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, mainly British, and in season, including peonies and roses.
