How time flies! It's been four years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot. And boy, has a lot happened since then. So, on their fourth wedding anniversary, we're taking a look back at all the action. On the day, Team Grazia was on hand to note every development. So give it a scroll and revisit the glorious royal event...

9.28am: Guests start to arrive at St George's Chapel, including Paul Burrell, Earl Spencer, Idris Elba, James Blunt and Oprah Winfrey.

9.55am: Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy is spotted en route to the chapel.

10.01am: Kensington Palace makes an announcement about the rings, which have been designed by Cleave and Company, and fashioned from platinum and Welsh gold.

10.05am: Pippa Middleton arrives, wearing a £495 green floral dress from The Fold.

10.06am: Prince Harry is on the move!

10.09am: The Irish Guards get the party started on the streets of Windsor.

10.26am: The A-list arrive: Carey Mulligan, Marcus Mumford, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Tom Hardy and Joss Stone are spotted entering the chapel.

10.52am: Oh to be a fly on the wall: Elton John, David Furnish, James Blunt and the Beckhams are spotted making small talk inside the church.

10.53am: The Suits cast start to arrive en masse looking chic: Sarah Rafferty, Abigail Spencer, Jacinda Barrett and Gabriel Macht.

11.16am: The Royal Family starts arriving, including Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, the Countess of Wessex, Lady Louise Windsor, Prince Edward, Viscount James, Zara and Mike Tindall, Peter and Autumn Phillips, and the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. And Fergie is here!

11.20am: Meghan Markle leaves Cliveden House with her mother Doria, giving us the first glimpse of her dress. It has a boat-neck collar.

11.24am: Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie arrive, looking a lot more restrained than at the last royal wedding.

11.34am: Prince Harry and his best man Prince William arrive, wearing the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals. Harry breaks with tradition by choosing to wear a wedding ring.

11.51am: The royal cohort pulls up. First up is Meghan Markle's mother, Doria, wearing a mint green Burberry coat dress.

11.54am: The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles arrive soon after, with Camilla's pink floral hat being particularly eye-catching.

11.55am: Next up it's the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The Queen is wearing green.

11.56am: The flower girls are next, accompanied by their mothers, including the Duchess of Cambridge, with the children waving out of the window adorably. The Duchess wears a yellow wool silk tailored coat by Alexander McQueen, which she has worn on two other occasions - the Queen's birthday and Princess Charlotte's christening.

12pm: Meghan Markle arrives! And after months of speculation, the bride is wearing Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller.

She also wears the Queen Mary diamond bandeau tiara, lent to her by the Queen.

The flower girls' dresses are also by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, while the pageboys wear a miniature version of the Blues and Royals frockcoat, with their initials in gold on their shoulder straps.

12.02pm: In a statement, Kensington Palace says: 'After meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour. Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy.

'True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasises the slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.'

12.10pm: 'Entering into the British establishment, to choose a British designer was expected, but with so many great talents to choose from the questions has been who rather than British or not,' said the BFC's Caroline Rush. 'Clare is a great talent and the dress looked incredible. So fantastic to shine a light on British talent at the helm of international businesses.'

12.15pm: After the Archbishop of Canterbury performs the couples vows (prompting some giggles from the happy couple) Lady Jane Fellowes, sister of Princess Diana, gives a reading.

12.20pm: The Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry, head of the Episcopal Church, opens his speech with the words of Martin Luther King, saying: 'We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way.'

12.30pm: After a lengthy and energetic sermon from the Most Rev Bishop Michael Curry, the choir performs 'Stand By Me'.

12.40pm: And they're officially married!

1pm: The couple emerged and make their procession through Windsor in their open-topped carriage, with the royal family waving them off.

1.07pm: The kiss!
