Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just married in a wedding that brought the worlds of royalty and celebrity together. 

But the 36-year-old Suits actress isn't the first actress to marry into royalty.

Grace Kelly and Zsa Zsa Gabor were just two other celebrities who've married into royal families before.

The guestlist for Meghan and Harry's wedding was a star-studded reflection of Meghan's status in the showbiz world - Elton John, Serena Williams and George and Amal Clooney were all on the guestlist. 

Her father Thomas Markle also attracted tabloid attention with his frequent changes of heart over whether to attend – he was accused of staging paparazzi shots of himself and pulled out, before saying he did actually want to walk her down the aisle.

He then became unable to attend due to a heart operation, and it was finally confirmed he wouldn't be going

While Meghan may have won in the celebrity friends stakes, she has some contenders from history for marrying a prince. See our gallery above.
