The breathtaking royal nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle proved to not only be a spectacle due to its richness in British tradition, but also for its unapologetic exhibition of Black excellence, throughout.

The beautifully grand ceremony, which saw the gorgeous Markle officially tie the knot with her now husband, Prince Harry, was a true testament to two worlds perfectly colliding, with the presence of the groom and bride's respective cultures being well-represented.

From Bishop Curry's spirited Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.-inspired sermon to the trance-enducing performance by young Black cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the event proved to be a moment that Black Twitter significantly enjoyed.

Take a look at the moments that stood out, for the culture, below:

  1. Markle's Mother's Pride:
  2. U.S. Bishop Michael Curry's Dr. King-led sermon:

    Bishop Curry is known for his inclusive and politically charged sermons, and his latest proved to be another one for the books:

  3. The Kingdom Choir's rousing performance of "Stand By Me":
  4. Mesmerizing 19-year-old Black cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason:

    The young prodigy was actually hand-picked by Markle, herself:

  5. Oprah feeling the spirit:
  6. Serena Williams' flawless arrival with her family, rocking her waist-length braids:

We send our heartfelt congratulations to the now Duke and Dutchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
