It is one year since Harry and Meghan married in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, and the showreel showcases 14 photographs capturing intimate moments from the day.

The pictures, which are mainly in black and white and were taken by photographer Chris Allerton, show tender moments between the couple.
Other images include Meghan with her mother Doria Ragland inside the chapel; Prince Charles about to walk Meghan down the aisle and a photograph of Prince William following his brother down the stairs.
