Royal wedding guests moved to tears by Prince Charles speech about his 'darling old Harry'
The Prince of Wales described how emotional he felt watching his youngest son, whom he still remembers so clearly as a baby, marrying the love of his life. As he addressed 600 guests gathered at the reception St George's Hall, there was barely a dry eye as he spoke so warmly about his "darling old Harry" and the man he had grown into. The Prince described how moving it was, at this point in his life, to watch his little boy move on. A little boy, whom he had winded so often as a baby and whom, he joked, might still have a bit of wind today. Guests described how warmly he welcomed Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, to Windsor and into his family. Frequently, throughout the course of the reception, he was spotted with his arm around Mrs Ragland. Prince Harry, looking like "the cat that got the cream," then gave a heartfelt, "off the cuff" speech in which he made it clear he was the happiest man in the world. Our picture editors' 22 favourite images of the Royal wedding He too, was effusive about how beautiful his new wife looked, and prompted laughs as he reminded the guests where they were and told them not to be too raucous and disturb the neighbours when they left the castle. He raised hearty guffaws as he promised that the Americans would not steal the swords. Veronica German, who runs the charity Dolen Cymru Wales Lesotho Link, said: "He couldn't get very far as every time he said 'my wife' everyone cheered and he had to go back to

Unfazed by all the fuss, how the bridesmaids and pageboys stole the show at the royal wedding
It was the merest flash of mischief in what was otherwise an impressively poised performance from the youngest members of the bridal party. As three vintage Rolls-Royces carrying the troop of six beautifully dressed bridesmaids and two of the four pageboys rolled towards St George's Chapel, Princess Charlotte cheekily stuck her tongue out and waved at the crowd. The children appeared to take it all in their stride as they hopped out of the car and were gathered together by their mothers and herded up the steps to the chapel. The Duchess of Cambridge took charge and - holding her daughter's hand, and that of three-year-old Florence van Cutsem - led the way into the chapel, while Ms Markle's best friends, Jessica Mulroney and Benita Litt, followed with their daughters Ivy, four, Remi, six, and Rylan, seven, and Zoe Warren (wife of Prince Harry's close friend Jake Warren) brought up the rear with two-year-old Zalie.

Stunning helicopter footage shows Hawaii volcano's fast-moving lava flow
The United States Geological Survey released stunning new footage on Saturday showing the lava pouring from a fissure created by activity around Kilauea, an active volcano in Hawaii that exploded Thursday morning. The footage, which was filmed just before 8:00 a.m. Hawaii local time shows a powerful lava flow tearing its way across the island, dangerously close to multiple structures.  SEE ALSO: Hawaii's Kilauea volcano just exploded According to the USGS, the flow is advancing southeast, and it originated from a line of low fountains, which can be seen in the background of the clip. A status report from the USGS states that the rate of lava eruption in the lower east rift zone increased on Friday and continued overnight. As of Saturday morning, the flow remained "very active" and was moving at speeds of up to 300 yards per hour.  "It is unknown whether the flows will continue to advance, or stop, and new lava flows are likely given the rate of activity seen at the rift zone," the report ominously states. An eruption also occurred Friday night at Halema'uma'u, the crater in the middle of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The plume extended to 10,000 ft, and left "noticeable ashfall" was reported downwind in the southwest direction.  The report also notes that ground cracks and lava outbreaks are still possible in the area.

Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Harry and Meghan's new Royal titles explained
When Meghan Markle marries her fiancee Prince Harry on Saturday 19 May at St George's Chapel, Windsor, like all brides she will be joining a new family. But this is not any family. Just like her sister-in-law-to-be Kate Middleton, the former American actress will be making the transition from "commoner" to "royal" complete with a new title. Here's everything you need to know about the British peerage and their new titles - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as confirmed this morning. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Ms Markle becomes the first Duchess of Sussex as she marries Prince Harry.  By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day, and the vacant title Duke of Sussex is regarded as the most likely choice for the Prince. The only previous Duke of Sussex was married twice, but neither of his marriages was approved by his father, George III, meaning they were considered unlawful. It means that Ms Markle is the first woman entitled to use the title HRH The Duchess of Sussex. Ms Markle's full name is Rachel Meghan Markle, but she was named as Meghan in Buckingham Palace's announcement of the engagement, meaning she is unlikely to revert to Rachel when she is married.

Two North Koreans defect in latest upset for diplomatic thaw on Korean peninsula
Two North Koreans, including a military officer, defected to the South early on Saturday morning in the latest upset for Pyongyang after a fractious week in which Kim Jong-un threatened to pull out of June talks with Donald Trump, the US president.  The officer and a civilian defected by boat and were picked up by the South Korean military in the Yellow Sea, near the inter-Korean sea border, after expressing willingness to defect, reported the South's newswire, Yonhap.  The defection, the first of a North Korean military officer since 2008, is awkward timing for Seoul, which has a longstanding policy of accepting any North Korean defectors who want to live in the South. Moon Jae-in, South Korea's president, has been at pains to keep this year's diplomatic détente between North and South on track, particularly in the run up to June 12 summit in Singapore between Kim and President Trump, which aims to make progress on denuclearisation and peace on the peninsula.  But despite a friendly first meeting between Kim and Mr Moon at the end of April, during which they held hands as they crossed their shared border, the diplomatic thaw that began in January showed the first signs of a breakdown last week, and the latest defection could raise tensions further.  Thae Yong-ho, the highest ranking North Korean official ever to defect Credit: AFP/AFP In a stinging rebuke on Thursday, North Korea's chief negotiator, Ri Son Gwon, called the South Korean government "ignorant and inc

An ageing airliner carrying 110 people crashed shortly after take off from Havana airport in Cuba on Friday, leaving just three survivors in the country's worst aviation disaster in three decades. The 39-year-old Boeing 737 had taken off on an internal flight when it went down into a cassava field not far from the end of the runway just after midday,  bursting into flames and leaving huge plumes of black smoke. A local resident told Granma, the Cuban state newspaper, that the plane crashed after it attempted to return to the airport - making a turn and clipping electricity cables, then plummeting to the ground. Miguel Diaz-Canel, the Cuban president, visited the scene immediately and said: "There is a high number of people who appear to have died. "Things have been organised, the fire has been put out, and the remains are being identified." Granma reported there was a baby aged under two on board, plus four children.

At a special summit in Turkey convened by President Tayyip Erdogan, they also pledged to take "appropriate political (and) economic measures" against countries that followed the United States in moving their Israel embassies to contested Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Erdogan, who is campaigning for re-election next month, used the summit to verbally attack Israel, comparing the actions of its forces to Nazi Germany's treatment of Jews in World War Two, when millions were killed in concentration camps.
