Residents of the Falkland Islands gathered early on Saturday (May 19) to watch the royal wedding as Prince Harry and his actress bride Meghan Markle married in a dazzling ceremony that blended ancient English ritual with African American culture, infusing the 1,000-year-old British monarchy with a blast of modernity.

Excitement revved up as families filed into the Falkland Islands Defence Force building for the royal watch party in one of Britain’s most remote territories.

With decorations that included the Union Jack, balloons and even a cardboard cut-out of the royal couple, the celebration included entire families.

The union of Harry, 33, a former royal wild child and sixth-in-line to the British throne, and 36-year-old Meghan, a U.S. divorce and actress, was like no other the royal family has seen before.

The British remain broadly supportive of the monarchy, albeit with a sense of mild irony about the pomp and pageantry that accompanies it, though most have deep respect for Queen Elizabeth after her 66 years of service as head of state.
