We are still kind of sad the royal wedding is over…but what an amazing wedding it was! And while we know what our favorite moments were, it’s so great to know what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s favorite ones were as well.
In a new audio recording for the “A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” exhibit at Windsor Castle (now showing through January 6, 2019), Meghan Markle revealed the moment she and Harry remember the most: the song she walked down the aisle to.
“[It] was actually Harry’s choice entirely and I think a really beautiful piece,” Meghan says in the personal recording. “I can retrace that entire walk down the aisle listening to it. It really is so special for us and I think it’s one of those things we’ll treasure forever.”
The song–George Frideric Handel’s “Eternal Source of Light Divine”– was performed on their wedding day by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas.
“I was looking for something completely different,” Harry says in the same recording. “I ended up stumbling across this piece of music, something that epitomizes the whole day, the whole feeling that I have for her, and this incredibly impactful music with no organ whatsoever, with a soloist who actually did the most incredible job.”

Between Meghan’s walk down the aisle and the later performance of “Stand by Me,” by Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir, this is a toss-up for us! But honestly, the entire wedding was so truly spectacular, it’s hard to decide what the best moment was. What we do know is that you, too, will absolutely remember and cherish your walk down the aisle. We still remember ours 8 years later. 🙂
