Watched by large crowds, the newlyweds arrived in a horse-drawn carriage as part of a procession.

The event was attended by other senior royals including the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband, did not attend the event, having retired from public life last year.

On Saturday, Meghan was pictured wearing a pale pink dress with matching hat, while Harry was in military uniform.

Their public appearance together followed media speculation in recent weeks that they had been on honeymoon, although Kensington Palace, Harry´s office, has not provided details of any trip.
