Prince Harry hilariously joked 'I'm ready for a drink now' as he and new wife Meghan Markle pulled back into Windsor Castle after a huge reception from excited crowds.
The newly-announced Duke and Duchess of Sussex smiled and waved to ecstatic crowds, some of whom have camped out for days to be at the front of the throng.
As the carriage pulled back into the grounds of the castle, Harry could be seen saying 'I'm ready for a drink now', causing Meghan to giggle.
Harry and Meghan thrilled fans as they left Windsor Castle in a horse-drawn carriage.
Some have been camped out near the castle walls for days, while others arrived as early as 4am to secure a good spot.
They cheered and screamed as the newlyweds passed by.
Rachael Carter-Eagleton said: “She looked amazing. She shone like a diamond.”
The long-awaited first kiss of the newly married couple drew cheers and applause from those gathered in the baking heat outside the West Door.
There were shouts of “Congratulations”, followed by a cheeky “Don’t be shy” from a former soldier, as he hinted for a second kiss.
Paul Vice, an ex-marine said Harry, who he has met a number of times, smirked back at him and would have been well aware of the squaddie humour with which the shout was intended.
Mr Vice joked: “As soldiers we’ll always give him a little bit of flack, especially now he’s under the ball and chain.”
The 34-year-old from Exeter, who is a past participant in the Invictus Games, said he believed even if Harry felt nervous as he arrived he would not have shown it.
“He’s a good lad, he looks very happy,” he said.
