(MUSIC PLAYING)

NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR (voice-over): Sealed with a kiss. Hoping you saw it.

GEORGE HOWELL, CNN ANCHOR (voice-over): Absolutely, the world was watching as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married.

ALLEN (voice-over): Welcome to the day after. We still have wedding fever around here, probably the rest of the world. welcome to our viewers here in the U.S. and around the world. I'm Natalie Allen.

HOWELL (voice-over): And I'm George Howell. 4:00 am here in Atlanta, George, on the U.S. East Coast and it is the day after the big day and the first day Prince Harry and Meghan Markle woke up as a married couple.

Their official titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And the world is certainly still talking about that groundbreaking wedding that took place at Windsor Castle on Saturday.

ALLEN: The last we saw of the glamor couple was them heading to an evening reception, driving in a 1968 Jaguar convertible with the bespoke license plate displaying their wedding date and Harry and Meghan aren't leaving for their honeymoon. They have an official engagement to carry out this week.

Let's go to Windsor, England, to our royal correspondent, Max Foster.

You covered the royals, Max. You covered the wedding. Here on the morning after, how are you feeling?

What moment or moments remain poignant for you?

MAX FOSTER, CNN ROYAL CORRESPONDENT: It's a weird calm on the town today. This was a throng of horses and people just yesterday and now it's like this desert and it's just engineers, TV engineers, picking up cabling and putting barriers away.

So it's sort of a low today. We are not getting any more updates from the family, either, apart from we're going to see Meghan and Harry return to Kensington Palace today. We're looking out for the bags under their eyes, we don't know how long that party went on for. We are not going to get any information about it.

In terms of the poignant moments, there's the naturally poignant moments where you saw Harry look at his bride for the first time. You saw Meghan's mother with tears in her eyes, the glamor of one side of the church, the aristocracy on the other side of the church, things like that.

But I think the defining images will be Meghan walking into the church solo. I think the choir absolutely rocked the wedding yesterday and hasn't been seen in a church like this in 1,000 years of royal history. They really stand out.

The kids were very well behaved after a few disastrous rehearsals, I understand. But right now we're going to look at the best summary of the day you'll see on any network. This was by Nick Glass and it is a brilliant piece. So have a look at this.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

(MUSIC PLAYING)

NICK GLASS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): The gospel soul classic, "Stand by Me," from 1961, we assume the song means a lot to the couple and we also assume it's never been sung at a British royal wedding before.

The choir stood at the back of St. George's Chapel Windsor and simply sang for Harry and Meghan. There was a palpable sense of departure here. On one side of the chapel a certain English royal stiffness perhaps and reserve; in contrast, a warmth and vivid emotion on the other side.

Meghan Markle's arrival looks like she may help change things.

We always knew that the turnout would be glamorous, the divorced, biracial American actress marrying the most popular of English princes. We weren't disappointed. The church filled. Meghan's on- screen husband from "Suits," Patrick J. Adams; David Beckham, footballer and model; Mr. Elton John and husband; Serena Williams, tennis player.

The vintage Rolls-Royce swept bride and mother to the chapel. We glimpsed the dress for the first time.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

GLASS (voice-over): (INAUDIBLE) French couture, Givenchy were the most delicate and lengthy of veils, sewn with floral symbols from all over the commonwealth, 1930s tiara was borrowed from the queen.

It seems that Meghan had always planned to walk down the first part of the aisle by herself, followed by her retinue of bridesmaids and pageboys.

[04:05:00]

GLASS (voice-over): In the absence of her father, Prince Charles met her halfway.

And of course, at this wedding, there was love. This was visibly, inescapably a romantic union.

REV. MICHAEL CURRY, EPISCOPAL CHURCH: The late Dr. Martin Luther King once said, and I quote, "We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love."

GLASS (voice-over): For a good 30 minutes or so, St. George's Chapel reverberated to unfamiliar oratory, American and passionate. The response was mixed.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He didn't -- he wasn't getting anything out of it.

JUSTIN WELBY, ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY: I, Meghan, take you, Harry...

MEGHAN MARKLE, DUCHESS OF SUSSEX: I, Meghan, take you, Harry...

WELBY: -- to be my husband...

MARKLE: -- to be my husband...

WELBY: -- to love and to cherish...

MARKLE: -- to love and to cherish...

WELBY: -- until death us do part.

MARKLE: -- until death us do part.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

GLASS (voice-over): And so Harry and Meghan were married in a great English medieval chapel and kissed without any prompting from the waiting camera man. Thomas Markle watched it all on TV.

"My baby," he said, "looked beautiful and very happy."

In what seemed like Californian sunshine, his daughter now has a title. She is the Duchess of Sussex, although we'll still probably refer to both of them as just Harry and Meghan -- Nick Glass for CNN.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

ALLEN: What a special day.

HOWELL: Indeed.

Max, one question that comes to mind, this was such a different ceremony than what has been seen there, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was quoted; the song, "Stand by Me" was sung during the ceremony.

What has been the reaction so far from what you have heard about Meghan Markle's personal touches to this wedding? FOSTER: So much is being said about the symbolism. I spoke to someone who was with her the night before the wedding and I asked particularly about the feminism side. walking down the aisle on your own.

And I asked, is that a message?

And he said no. She's just doing it the way she wants to do it. But there is a message there because to walk into this hallowed and ancient institution and do things your own way, express your own character, is incredibly hard to do, especially for a foreigner, who doesn't understand the system. But perhaps that worked in her favor.

But I think it allowed more people to connect with the event. So whether it's the diversity issue or whether it's the feminism issue or the fact a divorcee has come in or if you're into fashion, whatever you're into, there was something there for you.

So what she did for the royal family was allow many more people to connect with the British monarchy. And I have to say, the royal family looked absolutely thrilled with that. They allowed her to be herself which, of course, they didn't do with Diana, to disastrous effect.

ALLEN: Right. That was noticeable and it was refreshing, once you realize this ceremony is different. It's unique. It's about Meghan and Harry.

HOWELL: And it was all inclusive. Everyone, you're like, as you point out, Max, rightly, everyone felt a piece or a part of the ceremony that we saw.

ALLEN: Thanks, Max.

Max Foster for us.

HOWELL: Excellent coverage as well, Max, thank you so much.

Let's transition now to continue the discussion with the royal commentator we have with us, Richard Fitzwilliams, live in our London bureau.

It's good to have you --

ALLEN: Hey, Richard.

How are you feeling today?

Long day yesterday.

(CROSSTALK)

RICHARD FITZWILLIAMS, ROYALTY COMMENTATOR: Indeed. It was extraordinary. This was a ceremony with both global reach, on social media there's never been anything bigger, and global significance, as Max was saying because what it was symbolic of was we had our first American princess.

And she was able to choose so much that was personal to her in the service as Harry was, paying tribute to Diana with the reading by her sister, Lady Jane Fellows and also the choice of the hymn, "Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer".

But images flood in as one thinks back. The kiss between a couple so obviously, deeply in love under that glorious floral arbor as they left the chapel. The dress, when it was revealed, the Givenchy, no one had thought that it would be. But what an absolutely glorious creation.

And what a wonderful veil, with 53 commonwealth countries represented on it, something that also is very significant because I think Harry and Meghan --

[04:10:00]

FITZWILLIAMS: -- he is the commonwealth youth ambassador; the queen has just appointed him. They will be visiting so many commonwealth countries.

But above all, a ceremony where you could see two people so deeply in love and wonderfully diverse backgrounds visible in the choices in the service.

HOWELL: And that's really the question that I have here.

How different this was, in fact, certainly something that has not been seen in that chapel, to have an American bishop, Michael Curry, deliver the address, the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church.

What did you think of that particular moment and how it was received?

FITZWILLIAMS: I think that it was a remarkable address because the bishop is such a charismatic character. I think also it was undoubtedly a first and it does take some of those -- especially those used to more stiff upper lip addresses. The bishop of London, for example, in 2011 at William and Kate's wedding or Charles and Diana's, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

What we were seeing here was a look into another culture but also it reflected Meghan's American heritage and had a powerful message, the power of love, the Reverend Curry was talking about.

And he was also saying -- and summed it up very pithily, two young people fell in love and we all showed up.

ALLEN: I remember that. I remember that.

I was starring at the other royal family while he was speaking, trying to get a read on their faces. But no. They had the stiff upper lip going.

Will we get any feedback from the royal family? Will we ever know what the queen thought of the ceremony?

She certainly let Meghan and Harry, well, she let them do it their way.

FITZWILLIAMS: Well, I think that this was something that was so unusual. Of course, it wasn't a state occasion such as Charles and Diana's or a semi-state, such as William and Kate's.

And because also Meghan, biracial and proud of it, divorced -- and that's no longer a stigma -- a former actress, hence so much of the media fascination, and also a humanitarian activist, well, since the age of 11 when she challenged that sexist advert.

She was allowed so much range to choose, as Harry was, basically I think the couple set the service up together, choosing things that were important to them, as they did with the guests, since they weren't forced to choose prime ministers, other royals they didn't know and so forth.

So you had this intimacy. You also had on a global scale, because the world was watching, so this was something that was very, very special. One of the things that fascinated me was to look at Harry's face and the emotion, the love, the adoration when he saw her for the first time in that glorious Givenchy gown.

It really was very, very touching. And Meghan seemed so controlled, so enchanting, when that veil was lifted, that was one of the moments for me that I absolutely --

ALLEN: Yes, he got it right, didn't he?

That was --

(LAUGHTER)

HOWELL: Just on the context of it, though, to see a biracial woman marrying into the royal family, Richard, at a time when xenophobia, division, these things are so front and center, the royal family certainly sending a message with this wedding that we saw play out.

Richard Fitzwilliams, thank you so much for your time and perspective, live for us in London.

And of course we'll have more royal wedding coverage coming up, including some of the best fashion moments from celebrity guests.

ALLEN: Plus paradise paved over. Yes, we'll take you back to Hawaii. Molten lava paving it. Up next, we are checking on Hawaii's big island, where eruptions still opening up the ground.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

[04:15:00] (SPORTS)

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ALLEN (voice-over): This is the latest view from the skies over Hawaii's big island. As you can see, molten lava pouring freely from volcanic fissures in the ground. Now two separate lava flows have come together and are moving quickly as one flow toward a major highway along the coast.

HOWELL: Those pictures are impressive. And this is very dangerous because that highway serves as a critical escape route for coastal residents.

(WEATHER REPORT)

[04:20:00]

ALLEN: Other news that we're having to follow is that horrific shooting in Texas. The town of Santa Fe is mourning the deaths of 10 people after a gunman's rampage at a high school there.

HOWELL: We are learning much more about the victims.

Sabika Sheikh was an exchange student from Pakistan. Pakistan's consul general in Texas who called "Sheikh," "a bridge between our people and cultures."

And another young life lost, 17-year-old Jared Black. He was supposed to have his birthday party on Saturday.

ALLEN: Seventeen-year-old Christopher Jake Stone, described as adventurous and willing to try anything.

And Cynthia Tisdale, a substitute teacher and mother of four.

And Shana Fisher, who had just turned 16 and was worried about getting her driver's license and making plans for summer break.

Heartbreak.

The family of the alleged shooter released a statement, saying they are just as shocked and confused as anyone by what happened.

HOWELL: CNN's Rosa Flores has more now from Santa Fe, Texas.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

ROSA FLORES, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Yet another American school turned a crime scene, this time in Santa Fe, Texas. Ten people dead and 13 others injured. There are a lot of questions still remaining.

But here is what we know from authorities. The accused shooter acted alone. Investigators interviewing two other individuals who were then cleared about the weapons that were used in this case.

Police say that a shotgun and a .38 revolver were used. Initially authorities talked about pipe bombs and pressure cooker bombs that were placed not only in the school but also in other areas.

Now police describing those weapons as juvenile and also unsophisticated. We are learning more from a probable cause document. In that document it says that the accused shooter walked out of the art lab, turned himself in to police and also told officers that he spared some students that he liked so that they could tell his story.

The accused shooter now in custody, in solitary confinement. And from what we hear from authorities, he is cooperating with police -- Rosa Flores, CNN, Santa Fe, Texas.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HOWELL: We are joined now by CNN law enforcement contributor, Steve Moore. He is also a retired supervisory special agent with the FBI.

Always a pleasure to have you with us, live for us in Los Angeles. Steve, the governor of Texas wants to begin talks on school violence, tweeting to craft policies to better protect students and teachers in schools.

Where do you see this going?

Is this just hollow talk?

(CROSSTALK)

STEVE MOORE, CNN LAW ENFORCEMENT CORRESPONDENT: I'm hoping something will come out of it because we have to work on this from many different angles. The gun issue needs to be resolved. But I don't think anybody watching this show thinks this will be resolved in the next year or two.

Until that happens, the kids in schools are still in danger. So I think we have to also approach it from the point of securing the schools until we can get weapons completely away. And I'm not sure we can ever really do that because people can make bombs. People can use cars.

HOWELL: Steve, I would like to get your expertise here as a professional. We heard from the lieutenant governor of my home state. Here is what he thinks is part of the problem, how it could be solved. Let's listen.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DAN PATRICK, LT. GOV. OF TEXAS: There aren't enough people to put a guard at every entrance and exit. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.

[04:25:00]

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HOWELL: Steve, as a professional who has dealt with difficult situations, your thoughts on this. It is a two-part question.

First, is this just a dodge from talking about guns and gun control?

Or do you see value in this proposal?

Secondly, wouldn't that create a new safety hazard by limiting exits?

STEVE MOORE: Yes. Going backwards, working backwards, number one, you do not want to have a fixed guard, a uniformed guard at a known place to guard anything because at least like that because any student or someone else who is coming to do harm will know that there's a guard there and the first person they have to shoot is a guard. So that's untenable.

I think right now the best situation we have is that almost all high schools have school resource officers. Those are usually plainclothes or at least usually minimally uniformed officers. And they can roam around the campus. You don't necessarily know where they are at any given time.

And they can respond. I think that's the best we can do in this situation.

Third, I hope this is not a dodge because we have got to resolve this. But, see, this shooting puts even more questions out there because on the list of firearms that we consider dangerous as a culture, the AR- 15 would be top of the list.

The lowest on the list would a pump-action shotgun and a revolver that carries only six rounds. So we're charting new territory here.

HOWELL: Steve, we have 10 people killed, 10 others wounded. I hate to say the word "another school shooting," because each time this happens, each shooting is just as heartbreaking in its own right.

But after time after time after time it happens again.

Do you see the topic of gun control coming up?

STEVE MOORE: Well, it should. You can't just say -- see, the problems are on -- anybody who believes that it is a single solution problem is naive. Anybody who puts all of their hope in guns is naive. And nobody who won't discuss guns is naive.

We have to have a multidisciplinary plan to solve this, which is going to include guarding the students until we can solve the gun problem because it's not going to happen tomorrow.

And I think we need -- guns have to be -- pardon the illusion here -- but guns have to be on the table. And securing the campuses have to be on the table. Banks, they have guards. They have security. 7- Elevens have security. They're not waiting until guns leave society and schools can't. HOWELL: This is a school that had an active shooter plan, that had officers armed, officers in position. But again, we see, yet again, another soft target taken advantage of by a gunman.

Steve Moore, thank you so much for your time and perspective. We'll stay in touch with you.

ALLEN: Well, we are going to take you to Cuba next.

What caused that plane to go down just after it took off from Havana?

We'll have the latest on the investigation.

HOWELL: Plus the mystery of the FBI informant and the Trump campaign. President Trump wants the Justice Department to reveal what it knows.

Around the world and in the United States, You're watching CNN NEWSROOM.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

[04:30:00]

(MUSIC PLAYING)

ALLEN: Welcome back to our viewers here in the U.S. and all around the world. You're watching CNN NEWSROOM. I'm Natalie Allen.

HOWELL: And I'm George Howell. 4:32 am here in Atlanta, Georgia, from the East Coast. And here are the headlines.

(HEADLINES)

HOWELL: All right, the big story we've been following for the last day, the new chapter in the lives of a husband and wife, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the duke and Duchess of Sussex, also ushering in a new era for British royalty.

ALLEN: It started with their wedding ceremony, steeped in tradition but theirs broke the mold.

And how could it not?

With a bride who began the day as a biracial American TV star and ended it as a newly minted duchess. And nothing challenged royal norms quite like the rousing sermon by an American bishop, who quoted civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CURRY: Dr. King was right. We must discover love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world.

My brother, my sister, God love you. God bless you.

And may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

[04:35:00]

HOWELL (voice-over): And then there's the performance by the Kingdom Fliers, giving the ceremony an air of diversity, not to forget also that amazing cellist that performed, a scene that was rarely seen at royal weddings.

ALLEN (voice-over): One of the most anticipated and talked about moments of the royal wedding was of course Meghan Markle's dress -- now dresses.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

ALLEN: Booth Moore joins us to talk more about that and the rest of the royal wedding fashion moments. She's a style and fashion news director for the "Hollywood Reporter."

Booth, thanks for being with us.

BOOTH MOORE, "HOLLYWOOD REPORTER": Thanks for having me.

ALLEN: What a day, huh?

Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, went from timeless glam with her wedding dress to va-va-voom with her hot reception dress. Let's start there.

And, of course, Harry certainly looked dapper as well.

What did you think?

BOOTH MOORE: Definitely. She changed into this dress that was really kind of slinky and sexy and had a high neck. It's by a female designer, Stella McCartney, who is the daughter of Sir Paul McCartney and is -- has a lot of value of sustainability in her business. So it was kind of a natural choice, I think, to go with her.

ALLEN: Yes, they both looked fantastic. And they, I don't know, the Jaguar looked fantastic, too, as well.

BOOTH MOORE: Yes. And I think it was an electric Jaguar, too --

(CROSSTALK)

ALLEN: Yes, of course, my goodness. Talk about glam, both of them.

OK, now, the wedding dress, of course, perhaps the most analyzed wedding dress of all time for its understated elegance and simplicity and that train, what did you think?

BOOTH MOORE: I thought it was fantastic. She really surprised all of us. It was completely out of left field that she went with Claire White Keller, who is a British designer, who is the first female couture designer of Givenchy, which is a French fashion house.

And Givenchy has a long Hollywood (INAUDIBLE) added up to some meaningful touchstones for Meghan, I think. And the classic simplicity I think is going to be really trend-setting for brides, the kind of (INAUDIBLE) off the shoulder, ever so slightly off the shoulder look and sleek design goes along with Meghan's, her own personal style.

ALLEN: The boat neck. I never knew it was called a boat neck but now I'm look for dresses.

(CROSSTALK)

BOOTH MOORE: Right? Or a bateau, right, which really kind of reminded me of Audrey Hepburn, who was Givenchy's original muse back in the 1950s. So I kind of wonder if Meghan looked to the silver screen for her own version of a fairy tale when she was a child growing up.

ALLEN: Let's talk about the guests. Now we've got to talk about Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, beautiful women, almost stole the show at Kate's wedding. But her dress has now been compared to an Arizona tea can.

And you know what, there it is, it's pretty spot-on, both the tin can and her dress lovely.

What did you think about that?

BOOTH MOORE: I know. It seems inevitable these days that any sort of high fashion event is going to result in a few Internet memes. And this was one of the ones from the wedding. But I thought the dress was really beautiful. And I thought in general it was such -- it was a moment of Hollywood royalty as much as British royalty.

So it was really great to see so many famous faces, too.

ALLEN: Who wore it best, the tea can or Pippa?

Probably Pippa. OK.

(LAUGHTER)

ALLEN: So what about the other guests, hits and misses that you saw?

BOOTH MOORE: I thought everyone looked pretty good. It was like there were no crazy hats a la Beatrice at the last wedding, with Kasie Wilhelm (ph), her hat kind of resembled a toilet seat, unfortunately. There was no one like who really left us scratching our heads.

I think everyone sort of embraced the British garden party wedding look with these beautiful hats and really vivid colors. I thought Oprah looked amazing in this pink Stella McCartney dress that apparently was made in one day for her because she decided she didn't want to wear her original dress.

And Amal Clooney was also in Stella McCartney, this beautiful mustard yellow with the matching hat. Priyanka Chopra, she wore British designer Vivienne Westwood, this incredible asymmetrical suit that was just so edgy and cool.

So I think everyone really stepped it up.

ALLEN: Yes, everyone kind of stepped out. Look at those ladies walk and they've got it going on. OK, finally I have to ask you about the fascinators, the things --

(CROSSTALK)

ALLEN: -- stuck to their head. They all look so comfortable in them. None of their husbands knocked them off when they're walking. But I just don't know how they stay on.

What do you think about the fascinators?

BOOTH MOORE: I think I'm all for them. I think they are so much fun. It's funny, I was wearing one last night --

[04:40:00]

BOOTH MOORE: -- when I was coverage the wedding and my cat was really interested in it actually. But I think they are a lot of fun. And I think that's one of the things we'll see as a trend, that hats have been all over the runways in recent seasons and I think people are probably going to start wearing them at weddings, too.

ALLEN: Why not?

I've never worn a fascinator. I think the time has come. We thank you so much. It has been so fun analyzing their fashions. And now the most important thing, they wore their love well, too. They seem so in love and that's what really important.

BOOTH MOORE: They did.

ALLEN: Thank you so much, Booth Moore, we appreciate it.

BOOTH MOORE: Thanks.

ALLEN: Serena Williams was rocking a fascinator. She looked quite comfortable.

HOWELL: It is fascinating, how they keep them on their heads, though.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

HOWELL (voice-over): Still ahead, it was the wedding that broke the tradition, the world was surely watching. Still ahead, a look back at some of the most memorable moments from the ceremony.

(MUSIC PLAYING) (COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(MUSIC PLAYING)

ALLEN: Cuba may have found a key piece of evidence in Friday's deadly plane crash. An official says they have the cockpit voice recorder and it's in good condition. Authorities are still searching for a second black box.

HOWELL: One hundred 10 people are confirmed dead and three survivors have a long road to recovery. CNN's Patrick Oppmann has more in Havana.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

PATRICK OPPMANN, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Just seconds after takeoff in Havana, an explosion, a Cubana airline with 113 passengers and crew aboard crashed in a field next to the Jose Marti International Airport.

Rescuers were greeted by scenes of total chaos. Passengers' belongings littered the ground. The Boeing 737 split into several pieces. The plane's burned-out tail coming to rest near a tree; 110 people died in the crash but miraculously --

[04:45:00]

OPPMANN (voice-over): -- seemingly against all odds, three people, all Cuban, all women, survived. Cuban officials cautioned the survivors have traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and severe burns and that their recovery is far from certain.

"These patients have highly complicated injuries," he said. "It has taken an extraordinary effort to stabilize them."

Friday's accident was the worst aviation disaster Cuba has suffered in nearly three decades. It comes as the island's Communist-run government recently canceled flights and pulled aircraft experiencing mechanical problems from service.

The plane Friday had been rented from a Mexican airline and had a Mexican crew. Cuban officials are still investigating what caused the plane to crash.

OPPMANN: This is the terminal where the plane left from. It was supposed to take off from here and fly most of the way down the island to a city called Holguin, Cuba. Instead, it crashed just after takeoff.

OPPMANN (voice-over): Residents that live in the area of the crash scene said the plane struggled to get airborne.

"The plane was revving its engines to take off, but it couldn't," he told CNN. "Luckily, it didn't land on anyone's house."

Cuban officials say they have now recovered the remains of all the victims. But the process of identifying the dead following such a devastating crash could take weeks -- Patrick Oppmann, CNN, Havana.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HOWELL: Patrick, thank you.

Back here in the United States, the U.S. president continue to make accusations that an FBI mole, an informant, was embedded inside his presidential campaign. The House Intelligence Committee has even issued a subpoena for this mystery person.

ALLEN: On Saturday, the president sent out a tweet, demanding the U.S. Justice Department reveal more information about this person to congressional investigators. But there's no indication that will happen. U.S. officials say the person in question has been a long- time informant to both the FBI and CIA and revealing their identity could be life-threatening.

HOWELL: According to news reports, the alleged informant did speak with the Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos about their possible connections to Russia but was never part of the Trump campaign.

ALLEN: All right. Coming up here, loving glances and secret whispers. We'll have the best moments from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day.

HOWELL (voice-over): A special moment there for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as the two tied the knot at Windsor Castle in England on Saturday.

ALLEN: So many special moments in that ceremony throughout the ceremony the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchanged whispered moments like this one that melted hearts worldwide.

This wedding was unlike anything the British royal family had seen before. from the bride's solo walk down the aisle to the singing gospel choir. I'm going to get "Stand by Me" as my ringtone now.

HOWELL: Not a bad idea. Not a bad idea.

We'll leave you with another look at some of the most memorable moments from this wedding. "NEW DAY WEEKEND" is coming up on CNN.
