The crowds are showing no sign of dispersing in the streets of Windsor, and the town's shops and cafes cashing in. There are huge lines for bathrooms and plenty seeking respite from the bright sunshine.

This being Britain, everyone keeps apologizing to one another for bumping into them as they try to pass. Its perhaps the most polite human traffic jam yet.

A few short hours after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tie the knot, British football teams Manchester United and Chelsea will play at London's Wembley stadium for the FA Cup final.

Manchester United posted a cheeky photo of its former star player David Beckham arriving at the wedding earlier, along with the caption: "We'll be done by 5:15pm, right?"

Prince William usually attends the final as president of the Football Association — English football's governing body — but has put his duties as brother and best man first today.

British singer James Blunt may have shot to fame with his 2004 hit "You're beautiful" but these days he's perhaps better known as a poet with a character count.

Blunt can often be found on the micro-blogging platform trolling his haters. And today is no exception.

He took a few minutes from sipping champagne and eating canapes at the Queen's reception for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to tweet back to someone who questioned his presence at the royal nuptials.

For many watching around the world, one of the breakout highlights of the service was when Chicago's Most Rev. Michael Curry took the podium.

Curry's inclusion in the order of service was, for many on social platforms, is a signal of a modernizing British royal family and a taste of what could come now that a woman of color has joined the "firm."

British lawmaker David Lammy gave the bishop a hand on Twitter, posting about his powerful performance on the international stage.

And for others waking on up at the crack of dawn to tune in, it was a delightful addition.

All eyes were on Meghan Markle's massive 16-foot-long veil when she stepped out of car this morning and headed into the church.

But it was more than just a veil. The silk tulle veil was full of meaning.

The delicate, embroidered flowers that lined the veil represented the 53 commonwealth countries that she will be working with, fashion stylist Joe Zee told CNN.

Megan wanted to pay homage to those countries, he explained. One of them is Canada, where she lived for the past seven years. The Kensington Palace flower and California poppy were also represented.

"There is a lot personal meaning to her for this as well," Zee said.
