The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recalled how the King helped choose the orchestra for their wedding and comforted Meghan with his “charming” presence.
he was married in May 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to millions of followers in the UK and around the world.
Around 30 members of the royal family including the Queen gathered for the ceremony chaired by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
In the fourth episode of their Netflix series, the duchess recalled how her husband chose Handel’s sacred Eternal Light for her entrance.
She said: “You picked the song that I walked down the aisle, it was amazing. It is beautiful.”
Harry added: “My father helped us choose an orchestra, which made all the difference.”
In the absence of her father, Thomas Markle, who was found to have staged paparazzi photos in the days leading up to the wedding, Meghan was escorted by the current King.
She said: “Harry’s dad is so charming and I told him ‘I’ve lost my dad in this,’ so he as my father-in-law is really important to me.
“So I asked him to lead me down the aisle and he agreed.”
When asked how he felt when he saw his bride-to-be walking towards him, Harry said: “Look at me. Look what I got. Look what I found.
“The world is watching us, but when we’re on the altar, as far as I know, it’s just the two of us.”
The documentaries also show Meghan admitting she was surprised at the number of well-wishers gathered at Windsor Castle.

She said: “I knew that when I got to the actual castle – it was funny to say ‘When we went to the castle for my wedding’ – that there would be a lot of people.
“What I didn’t know was that people would line up on both sides of the road. I mean, this is a 15 minute drive.
Stylist and fashion designer Clare Waight Keller, who designed the wedding dresses, said there had been “many conversations” about “how you want to present yourself to the world”.
The 5-meter tulle dress and veil – embroidered with flowers from each of the 53 Commonwealth countries – was created after 3,900 hours of work by a team of 50 people.
“I mean, most of us have weddings with 70 to 200 people,” she added.
“There are billions of people watching this wedding. It has to be spotless, it has to be perfect.”
