Reuters and the royal wedding

Reuters coverage of the May 19 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was seven months in the making. Here's a sampling of editors' photo selections from the big day.

When Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle May 19 at Windsor Castle outside London, Reuters was there to capture the day’s romance and pageantry.

As recounted in “Backstory: A very modern royal wedding,” planning for coverage of the wedding began in November, when the engagement was announced. More than 50 Reuters producers, editors and reporters were involved in creating and curating coverage.

Reuters photographer Benoit Tessier‘s image of an elated Markle became an instant hit on social media.

“After installing my equipment, I had a long wait before seeing the couple,” Tessier said. “After six hours, they finally passed by. Meghan seemed very excited.”
