    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot last weekend at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in quite possibly the most star-studded ceremony in history.

    But it wasn’t the royal wedding guests or Elton John’s surprise mini concert that got everyone talking. Instead it was Meghan Markle’s speech.

    Yes Meghan broke royal protocol on the big day, not only walking herself down the aisle after her father pulled out, but also delivering a speech at the reception.

    That’s right. It was a watershed moment at the Queen’s luncheon reception, when guests who were expecting speeches from Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles, were treated to a few words from the bride.

    According to reports, she nailed it, being the first to stand up and speak at the third part of the wedding day, delivering an affectionate speech to her husband and thanking the royal family for looking after her and being so welcoming.

    It was one particular slip of the tongue however that really made viral news, as Meghan reportedly referred to the 33-year-old as ‘My Prince’ in her wedding toast.

    ‘This was a real breach of tradition. Usually the bride doesn’t talk. It is, of course, the father of the bride, but seeing there was no Thomas Markle, Meghan decided that she would speak,’ royal expert Katie Nicholls told Entertainment Tonight. ‘When it came to her new husband, Harry, she said, “I finally found my prince.”’

    She continued: ‘It was very romantic and very sweet.’

    Congratulations again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
