It's happened! They've said "I do!" Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially tied the knot in their royal wedding and it was everything that we could've imagined—and more. But the best is yet to come. We know, we know...How could anything top Meghan Markle's Givenchy wedding dress? But no fairytale is complete without a carriage ride to start off the starring couple's happily ever after, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's is happening right now!

After their ceremony concluded at around 1pm at St. George's Chapel, the newlyweds kissed on the steps of the church, much to the delight of the cheering crowds. Then, they climbed into their horse-drawn carriage (which we're sure was no easy feat with the train on the bride's Givenchy wedding dress!), Meghan and Harry chose an Ascot Landau carriage for their ride through the streets of Windsor, pulled by two Windsor Grey horses—a father/son team named Storm and Tyrone (the real stars of the show here, amiright?). Why the Ascot Landau? With airy, English countryside vibes and a structure that allows everyone on the streets to get a good view of the newlyweds, this particular coach was perfectly suited for the streets of Windsor. In case of bad weather, the couple had arranged to have the Scottish State Coach, a glass-enclosed carriage, on standby. Luckily though, the weather today in Windsor was as beautiful as this couple's newlywed glow.

Meghan and Harry's carriage is weaving through the crowds along Castle Hill, the High Street, and into the Windsor town centre, before heading through the Long Walk (that's a 2.64 mile stretch of road that leads to the gates of Windsor Castle). The carriage ride concludes there, with Meghan and Harry then heading inside St. George's Hall for the Queen's wedding luncheon, which will be the first of two receptions to celebrate the happy couple.
