This time tomorrow, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will have said their "I dos" and be celebrating at Frogmore house. But before that, there's a royal wedding ceremony, and we have the first look at what is on the program. Including the vows! And just like Kate Middleton, Meghan has chose to omit the word "obey" from her wedding vows. From the processions, to the music, hymns, prayers and readings, keep scrolling to read the full royal wedding ceremony program.

Of course we're excited about every detail of the royal wedding, but the moment Meghan Markle and Prince Harry take their vows is when they really become husband and wife. Kensington Palace just released the full ceremony program, including the vows the couple plan to exchange. Like the feminist icon she is, we had no doubt Meghan would choose to omit the word "obey" from her wedding vows, instead promising to honour her husband. Dying to know what Meghan and Harry will say at the altar? Here are the official vows for the royal wedding:

THE VOWS

HARRY and MEGHAN, I now invite you to join hands and make your vows, in the presence of God and his people.

The Bride and Bridegroom face each other and join hands. The Bridegroom says

I HARRY, take you, MEGHAN, to be my wife, to have and to hold from, this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow.

The Bride says

I MEGHAN, take you, HARRY, to be my husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow.

THE GIVING OF THE RINGS

HEAVENLY Father, by your blessing let these rings be to HARRY and MEGHAN a symbol of unending love and faithfulness, to remind them of the vow and covenant which they have made this day, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Bridegroom places the ring on the fourth finger of the Bride’s left hand and, holding it there, says

MEGHAN, I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage. With my body I honour you, all that I am I give to you, and all that I have I share with you, within the love of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

They loose hands and the Bride places a ring on the fourth finger of the Bridegroom’s left hand and, holding it there, says

HARRY, I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage. With my body I honour you, all that I am I give to you, and all that I have I share with you, within the love of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

All remain seated.
