Prince Harry and Meghan have kissed for the first time as a married couple after a joyous and modern wedding full of firsts for Britain's royal family.

Now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the newlyweds emerged from their ceremony in St. George's Chapel and shared a short kiss on the grounds of Windsor Castle, before descending hand-in-hand down the chapel stairs to be whisked off in a horse-drawn carriage.

The couple had married in front of of hundreds of guests, including British celebrities and many from across the Atlantic, such as Oprah Winfrey, Serena Williams, and George and Amal Clooney.

Couples do not typically kiss in Church of England wedding ceremonies, but it has been tradition for royal couples to kiss publicly soon after for the world to see.

The couple was first seen publicly kissing in May last year, when Meghan went to watch Harry play a charity polo match in Berkshire. They were photographed in the car park embracing and kissing before the match.

The couple's marriage is the culmination of a romance that began in 2016, when the two went on a blind date in London set up by a mutual friend.

Meghan visited Harry during his trip to Botswana later that same year, and it was in October 2016 that rumors emerged that the pair were dating.

The couple announced their engagement in November last year, the world got a glimpse of the engagement ring, made from a large Botswana diamond and two smaller diamonds that belonged to Harry's late mother, Princess Diana.
