The service was conducted by the Rev. Nick Wynne-Jones. Church bells rang as the couple emerged after their vows.

Tennis star Roger Federer and his wife were among the guests.

Before the wedding, a crowd of well-wishers and reporters gathered outside the church grounds on a day of sporadic rain.

After the ceremony, a lavish private reception is being held at the bride’s parents’ estate in nearby Bucklebury.

The bride’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, have had an elaborate glass marquee built on the grounds of their estate for the reception. Guests were advised to bring two outfits so they could change after the wedding ceremony.

The airspace above both villages has been closed to prevent intrusive press crews from flying overhead or launching drones to get video footage.

There is some speculation that Harry will bring his American girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle, to the reception. Their relationship has become serious in recent months, with Harry speaking out to ask the press to respect their privacy.
