Meghan Markle left guests in tears when she read a poem about Prince Harry at the Royal wedding reception.
The new Duchess of Sussex ‘stole the show’ with her emotional verses at the evening reception at Frogmore House in Windsor, according to one guest.
The former Suits actress, 36, spoke of her intense love of her new husband, 33, and how it was ‘love at first sight’.

The unnamed guest told The Sun: ‘She read her poem like the professional actress she is.
‘Most of the room was misty-eyed by the final line – Harry looked so proud and had to wipe away a tear.
‘She spoke about their first date and said she knew she had met her prince from the off and how blessed and lucky she feels to have found such a profound love.’
When they announced their engagement the couple revealed they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend in July 2016.
This is believed to have been American-based fashion designer Misha Nonoo.
Their evening wedding reception followed the afternoon one at St George’s Hall and was attended by 200 guests.

A Royal bride is never believed to have addressed wedding guests – with Meghan breaking convention at the gathering.
It was today revealed tables at the Frogmore House event were named after words said differently in British and American English – like tomato and oregano.
It followed Prince Charles’ emotional speech in the afternoon, when he joked about ‘darling old Harry’.
Charles is believed to have told how moving it was to watch his little boy get married, finishing by saying: ‘My darling old Harry, I’m so happy for you.’
Harry is also said to have given an ‘off the cuff’ speech about how happy he was, and jokingly promised that the American guests would not steal any swords from the castle.
He is also said to have turned to his guests and asked: ‘Can anyone play the piano’ – before Sir Elton John played a medley of Your Song, Tiny Dancer, Circle Of Life and I’m Still Standing.
