After staying at Windsor overnight, Harry and Meghan were due to return to their home at Kensington Palace in London.
They will not be taking a honeymoon immediately, as they are scheduled to attend a garden party for Harry’s father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
Meghan and Charles have reportedly forged a strong bond, and he stepped in to escort her to the altar at the wedding after her own father pulled out following a media furore and subsequent heart surgery.
Charles also invited Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, the only member of the Markle family to attend the wedding, for tea before the big day and chatted to her in the church.
“Thank you to everyone who came to Windsor and those who followed from around the UK, the Commonwealth, and the world,” said an @RoyalFamily tweet.
As a formal member of the royal family, Meghan now has her own section of the royal.uk website, which highlights her charity work — and plays down her acting career.
The section “About the Duchess of Sussex” notes her activism from an early age, as well as her work with UN Women, One Young World and World Vision, with only a passing reference to “filming in Toronto”.
The biography section offers a few more details about Meghan’s near 15-year career as an actress, including in hit US television series “Suits”, shot in Toronto.
It also references her lifestyle blog, The Tig — which, like her acting, she has given up to join the House of Windsor.
