Prince Harry may have missed a highlight of his wedding to Meghan Markle by having his mind distracted by something else, according to a new book.
The 35-year-old Prince and his 39-year-old bride warmed the hearts of millions around the world when they swapped vows in May 2018 in front of friends, family, and the global media.
Tens of thousands of royal family fans lined the streets at Windsor castle where the happy couple became husband and wife – with cheers sounding up when they embarked on a horse drawn journey after their ceremony.
But while the couple kissed, flashed beaming smiles, and waved to the adoring crowds, it seems the duo shared a brief conversation that has only now been shared.
According to controversial biography, Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Family, the Prince almost missed out on appreciating the huge crowds that had come out in support of his big day.
According to pages within the book, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was overwhelmed by the members of the public who came to spectate, while Prince Harry was allegedly distracted.
It is claimed: "Lifting her hand to her chest, Meghan had just one word when she saw the huge crowds gathered on the grounds of the castle: 'Wow!'

"Sitting down in the carriage beside his bride, Harry laughed that his trousers were 'too tight.'"
The credibility of Finding Freedom – penned by royal journalists Carolyn Durrand and Omid Scobie and published last month – has been hugely scrutinised.
Many have criticised the book for being “sugary” and filled with “banal detail”.

Prince Harry and Meghan distanced themselves from the book when some suggested the pair had a hand in the making of it.
A spokesperson said in a statement in July: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.
"This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
