More than 2,000 people gathered at Salisbury Cathedral to watch a live screening on a 25ft screen of the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday.

The BBC Wiltshire Royal Wedding Party on the West lawn at the Cathedral also saw picnics being enjoyed, games played and live music.

 

Speaking ahead of the event, Canon Robert Titley from Salisbury Cathedral told Premier News Hour what he hoped attendees would get out of the big day.

"It will be a really enjoyable and potentially profound day for people all across the country. Church of England weddings are public events and we thought what better thing to do than to make this a very, very public event so people can watch it together," he said.

He added that the day would demonstrate that locals are moving on from the Russia ex-spy poisoning attack that dominated the news recently.

Meanwhile, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have thanked everyone who went to Windsor for their wedding yesterday.

Harry and Meghan are beginning their first day together as a married couple - but the timing and destination of their honeymoon is not known.

It won't be until after Tuesday at the earliest as they will be attending Prince Charles' 70th birthday party then.
