Amidst all the stuffy tradition and highfalutin fanfare of the royal wedding, it was a welcome moment to get a glimpse of Harry and Meghan's actual love for one another, without the royal titles attached.

Viewers also noticed that Prince Harry wiped away a tear from his eye when he first saw his wife-to-be, Meghan Markle, walking down the aisle in her white Givenchy wedding gown, and you could even see him mouthing adoring phrases like, "You look amazing," and, "I love you," to her when they both united at the altar.
And then, of course, came the romantic moment that everyone was waiting for: the kiss!

That is also why that small detail about Meghan and Harry holding hands throughout the entire ceremony was actually one of the most meaningful and beautiful moments from the whole, romance-filled wedding for so many of the viewers.
