The Royal Family has thanked those who travelled to Windsor for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Thousands of people lined the streets to see the couple on their big day, with many more watching the ceremony on television around the globe.
The wedding celebrations ended with a black-tie dinner and fireworks display at Frogmore House, near Windsor Castle.
Two hundred of Meghan and Harry’s closest friends and family attended the event held by Prince Charles.
The couple are not expected to leave for their honeymoon immediately, choosing instead to remain in the UK before taking a break.
As a wedding gift Prince Harry gave his bride an emerald-cut aquamarine ring which had belonged to his late mother – Diana, Princess of Wales.
The Royal Family’s twitter account posted a message of thanks to those who followed the wedding from the UK, the Commonwealth and around the world.
Thank you to everyone who came to Windsor and those who followed from around the UK, the Commonwealth, and the world today. Congratulations once again to the newly-married Duke and Duchess of Sussex. #royalweddingpic.twitter.com/SQWQg5ZsOq
