I must say that compared to other royal weddings we have seen not only in Britain, but especially in other European monarchies, ,it was pretty underwhelming. But the couple seems to genuinely care for each other, which is what really matters after all.

Can you indicate when it was?

Princess Charlotte is going to seriously embrace her royal duties as she grows up.

Right after the end of the anthem, in the pause just before the recessional music started.

Indeed, that is all that matters.

Underwhelming in none of the OTT pomp and circumstance seen at weddings like the Cambridge wedding true

But it suited them. Beautiful with personal touches. The music fits them. I love the different performers like the cellist. And the household guard accompanying them. It is such a wonderful mix of a personal wedding and a royal wedding.

A Windsor wedding is never meant to be as pompous and extravagant as a Westminster Abbey/St Paul's wedding.

It is always a more personal, simple affair.

After they came back into the church proper from signing the register after the anthem. The camera showed it from above so it was hard to see.

That’s what I thought. I thought the ceremony was wonderful.

Some young ladies are wearing tee shirts that say “I want to marry Harry”. Too funny!

I must say that was as underwhelming a royal wedding I’ve ever watched. Couple were happy the service didn’t have the royal oomph.
