The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will celebrate six years of marriage on Sunday 19 May. 

Prince Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in Windsor was watched by 1.9 billion people, with the newlyweds greeted by cheering crowds during a carriage procession after the ceremony.

While the public got to see the service live on television, the reception hosted by the late Queen Elizabeth II at St George's Hall and later a party at Frogmore House all took place privately.

But Harry and Meghan later lifted the lid from the behind-the-scenes at their wedding when they shared never-seen-before snaps from their special day in their Netflix docuseries in December 2022.

Intimate moments included the newlyweds cutting their wedding cake with a sword, Harry raising a toast and their first dance as husband and wife, which you can watch in the video below…

A very rare image inside the couple's wedding reception held at St George's Hall at Windsor Castle showed the then Duchess of Cambridge mingling with guests. Prince George and Princess Charlotte both had starring roles in the bridal party at their uncle Harry's wedding.
