friends and family. the duchess had a quick outfit change to this stunning stella mccartney gown. everybody else getting the james bond vibes as they get into this car. this is the last time you will see the bride and groom on their wedding day. let's go first to cnn's nick watt in windsor at the site of this union. what do we know about this final celebration today? >> well, this is for just 200 close friends and family. of course, earlier, there was a lunch reception hosted by the queen in the castle just behind me where they ate salmon and ten-hour slow roasted pork belly and a gigantic lemon cake that took 500 eggs to make. this is where they get to let their hair down after a historc day. of course, the wedding took place this morning noon local
1:03 pm
time. meghan walking herself down the aisle. tonight, she's also, apparently, going to give a speech at this reception and that also goes against tradition of royal weddings and weddings in this country. meghan is making her mark and making a statement she is not going to be a princess who just does what she is told. she's meghan markle and 36 years old, has a career and marries the man who she loves. >> and that's why people love her. thank you. now to what everybody is celebrating the wedding itself. a ceremony unlike any previous wedding before it. to the solely walk to the gospel choir. here's some of the most memorable moments. ♪ and the land is dark
1:04 pm
>> reporter: the gospel solo classic "stand by me" and we assume the song means a lot to the couple and assume it has 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. a reserve. in contrast a warmth and vivid emotion on the other side. meghan markle's arrival looks like she may help change things. ♪ stand by me stand by me ♪ >> reporter: we always knew the turnout would be glamorous. divorced biracial american actress marrying the most popular of english princes. we weren't disappointed. the church filled. meghan's on-screen husband from

1:06 pm
king once said and i quote, we must discover the power of love. the redemptive power of love. >> reporter: for a good 13 minutes or so, st. george's chapel reverberated american and passionate. the response was mixed. >> he wasn't getting anything out of it. >> i, meghan, take you, harry. >> i, meghan, take you, harry. >> to be my husband. >> to be my husband. >> to love and to cherish. >> to love and to cherish. >> till death due us part. >> reporter: so, harry and meghan were married in a mid-evil chapel and kissed. thomas markle watched it all on television. my baby, he said, looked beautiful and very happy. what seemed like californian sunshine, his daughter now has a
1:07 pm
title. she's the duchess of sussex, although we'll still probably refer to both of them as just harry and meghan. >> feels so good to be covering such a feel-good story today. our next guests have been there in person all day covering the royal wedding with us as royal commentator and journalist james brooks and author of "h "conversations with the prince," angela. although this was a british royal wedding and pomp and circumstance, we also saw so many personal touches who showcase who meghan is and what is important to her. what stood out most to you? >> two things, really. one was the sermon. and the other was the gospel choir. i've never seen anything like that within a royal marriage. but they did say that they were both working together to do what
1:08 pm
they felt showed what they were about. what they liked. how they felt. and i found it overwhelmingly moving. and in a way, all the crowds and all the people around them, the way they looked at each other, they were really full of happiness. >> it was so beautiful. you put that emotion jumped through the tv screen. and you mentioned the gospel choir. meghan, of course, is adding this racial diversity to the royal family, james. how significant is that aspect to the social and cultural fabric of the uk? >> well, i think it does reflect the uk as a society today where london, in particular, are being one of the most diverse cities in the world, you would say. i think harry and meghan wanting to be sure that the monarchy reflects that going into the 21st century. they need to make sure they
1:09 pm
modernize and change with the times otherwise you get those questions of, should we have the monarchy? is it relevant? harry and meghan very aware of that and also trying to capture, like angela says, the heritage of both of them in the service. >> angela, what does -- go ahead. >> felt the monarchy -- >> the queeb felt the monarchy had to represent the nation and for many years it did. they were distant and they had the family that was kept away from the public. and it no longer for 20, 30 years, it no longer really reflects what's going on. people divorce. there's also some half brothers and step brothers and mixed race and the royal family will now represent the how we all are, again. it's a huge change. i think she can relax and the other royals can relax that the
1:10 pm
royals are part of society, but they also want to keep the magic. so, they have to stay a little bit apart. but it's brought them into reality, i think. >> james, #royalwedding was tweeted more than 3.4 million times today. why is the world so obsessed with this event? >> well, i think it comes down to the fact that the pair are so and, obviously, connected, and in love with each other. it's that usual fairy tale story, you could say. i know checking social media today throughout the day, a lot of people saying that, particularly, the address by the bishop was riveting and a lot of people, even if they weren't religious or didn't really care for the monarchy or the royals, if they tuned on a whim, were completely blown away. you could see that reaction from the royals themselves. quite a few smiles and giggles
1:11 pm
in the chapel, i think. and it did make the service a lot more, not informal, but a lot more comfortable, i think, for a younger marriage. >> harry also is, of course, extremely popular throughout the world. everybody loves harry. next to the queen, he's the next most popular royal. having spent a year with him, my view is that people can identify with him. he's naughty. he gets into trouble. he's impulsive. he's been damaged by parents who didn't love each other and losing his mother at a tender age of 12. but he's also now stable and he's done well and he wants to be part of the royals and make a difference to society. people can see there's good and bad in him and they feel that's like me. i make mistakes and i try to be good and there's this terrible, incredible bond between him and
1:12 pm
generations. >> do you think it matters that he married an american? >> i don't think so, no. again, it's all about the whole point of the marriage is because they love each other and they want to spend the rest of their lives together. and i think, actually, in terms of making the marriage work and making the couple work for the royal family, the fact that she is american, i think, personally helps because it means that she can come at things with a different culture. we've seen that when they've been on engagements together in the last few months. we've seen that meghan has been really engaged with people, kind of on the ground, there were people there who said i never came out for a member of the royal family before and i have for meghan and harry because i feel they are more relatable. and i think the fact that she's
1:13 pm
american doesn't really make a difference. >> i guess i ask that question in part because we know the last american to wed somebody in the royal family wasn't embraced with wallace simpson in the past, angela. >> i can't hear. i can't hear. >> just saying how, obviously, walla simpson not being embraced at and how does that relate to the situation today? >> well, harry is not the heir to the throne. you know, king eduaward viii ha been made king. that constitutionally was an explosive device. and at the time, of course, in the '30s, she was divorced and that was really not odd.
1:14 pm
now people are used to it. but then it was not done. so it's a very different culture that we're in now. i think the thing that is very interesting is that both william and harry have chosen middle class girls. it used to be absolutely essential that they would choose young, they were often blonde, very slim, didn't do much, but they came from wealth and they came from titled families. now that no longer happens. they have both chosen women they love who have accepted the burden of being royal because they love their partners. >> james, thank you for translating there with angela's difficulties. i'll end here and give you the
1:15 pm
last words, james. when you reflect on the last major event with will and kate's wedding prior to this, how do you think this one compared? >> i think this one was always going to be a more intimate service compared to william and kate's wedding. it was not, although the media attention might have you believe something else, i think the media attention has certainly been the same, if not bigger to this wedding. but windsor being a much smaller town. felt a lot more concentrated and also felt a lot more intimate, as well. i think that's what harry and meghan wanted. they don't have as much responsibility on their shoulders as william has. that was reflected in the guest list, they did not have to invite the dignitaries and it made it feel very family orientitaori
1:16 pm
orientated and i think the overwhelming feeling here in windsersor has been one of happiness and its justine walki down the street tonight the police just chatting to people and seeing how they enjoyed the day and people making their way back home now, of course. but, ultimately y think the day has gone well. the ultimate questions in the next few days and weeks, i think, will be around the costs and we'll have requests, no doubt, going to the counsels and trying to determine that. but i think harry and meghan can look back on the day today as one of happiness and hopefully they'll have the fond memories themselves. >> looked like a magical place to be there. thank you, both, for staying up late and joining us as we continue our special coverage. good to have you both. our royal wedding coverage

tracfone. for moments that matter
1:21 pm
before prince harry and meghan tied the knot this morning at windsor castle they promised to honor a special person on harry's special day. princess diana, there's no question they made good on that promise. our correspondent bianca is joining us now from windsor. tell us about how diana was part of this special day. >> hi, ana. well, diana has been part of this entire journey with the couple and that's what they said in their engagement interview when they referred to me goghan beautiful engagement ring. a special place to both of them in the middle flanked by two stones from diana's gemstone collection. that's the way they're carrying her with them in this crazy
1:22 pm
journey. you mentioned the flowers. and everywhere anyone looked around the ceremony from the chapel to meghan's bouquet to the bouquets of the bridesmaids and page boys. it was really obvious that her presence was surrounding the couple on this special day. i must say, ana, there's been such joyful spirit here on the streets of windsor all week. if there's one, one thing which overshadows all of it, it is the fact that people who have come from far and wide all over the world say that it is sadness for them that princess diana isn't here to share this special day with prince harry and meghan and, of course, the ceremony itself was quite unconventional and one really anchored in the ideas of the power of love. not necessarily something which british people would typically be used to. certainly not for a royal
1:23 pm
wedding and pastor curry gave this really impassioned address about the power of love in today's society. something which i think harks back to what a lot of what princess diana stood for. >> i'm sure it was a little bittersweet, as well, for prince harry because his mom couldn't be there. they were very close, as we know. talk about that unique bond they shared. >> they did. it's often spoken about. one of the most difficult memories that most people have of prince harry is, of course, that tragic scene where he had to walk behind his mother's coffin at such a young age. something which many people say he never should have had to do. and he since said in interviews that he did with the british press and others it's something hard for him to think about. the bond that he had with his mother was so strong and that loss was so deep. anyone who lost a parent knows what that feels like. that he had to push it to one
1:24 pm
side and try not to think about it because he said it would just make him even less happy. but in recent years, william, kate and harry have all been more outspoken about the importance of discussing mental health and the importance of discussing grief when you go through something like that. harry shared his own experiences and the pain of his own loss with people to try to help them heal, too, ana. >> bianca, thank you very much for that reporting. tune in tonight for a look back at prince harry and meghan markle's road to the altter. "a royal match" airs at 7:00 p.m. followed by an encore presentation of the royal wedding itself. relive all the big moments or catch it since it happened so early here in the u.s. we'll bring it to you at 8:00 eastern. breaking news from "new york times." another meeting between donald trump junior and foreigners

materialized but the fact remains that the special investigators and special counsel for the fbi robert mueller and his team has interviewed numerous people connected to this proposal. connected to mr. nadir and both individuals themselves during the last few months in israel and the in the united states. and i think that this meeting is the first suggestion, first evidence to the possibility that foreign entities and foreign states, all countries had offered the help to the trump campaign. something that could be seen as illegal, according to u.s. law. >> ronan, thank you very much for bringing us your reporting. that last point, an important one to make. this apparent offer, according to "new york times" of another country potentially wanting to influence the u.s. election and offering to help wage some kind of social media campaign on

to learn more about the ten victims in friday's shooting. jared black just turned 17 days ago. today was supposed to be his birthday party. his family just confirming to cnn that he is among the dead. that party that was supposed to happen today, of course, for him. instead, his family is in mourning trying to plan a funeral. and he is just the latest that we're learning about. another 17-year-old chris stone we also learned who was described as the best brother in the world by his sister. meantime behind us at the school we're watching scenes like this play out. we're watching this for the last several hours. students and adults being escort under to the school in groups of ten. they're there to retrieve their belongings. the high school, of course, now a crime scene. authorities believe the 17-year-old gunman did act alone here. dimitrios pagourtzis is being held without bail. according to court documents he
1:40 pm
confessed to police and also told them he spared students he liked so he could have his story told. he used two guns, a shotgun and a revolver both which were legally owned by his father. the family, we should point out, haven't spoken. the parent didn't know or expect this and could not have predicted it. authorities also found what appeared to be explosives in and around the school on friday. they'll later confirm they were not operational devices. so many questions about who this 17-year-old alleged shooter is. investigative correspondent drew griffin has more details now about the suspect. >> dimitrios pagourtzis details on facebook before the page disappeared. pagourtzis said he started attending santa fe high school three years ago and posted pictures of himself a normal
1:41 pm
high school student. on april 30th, less than a month ago, he also posted this. a custom black t-shirt that says born to kill. >> he waears a trench coat ever day and it's like 90 degrees. i talked to him because we used to play football in ninth grade. he's real quiet, he keeps to himself. he'll walk around with his trench coat on and headphones in and he doesn't say anything. >> reporter: on the same day he posted his t-shirt, he also posted a photo of this black duster jacket with nazi, communist, fascist and religious symbols and under the name, posted three rap songs on youtube. that's it. the rest of it, typical teenager. other photos showing an average teenage american. on his facebook page he showed interest in joining the u.s. marine corps starting in 2019. the marines have no record of him. before high school, pagourtzis
1:42 pm
attended santa fe junior high where he was listed on the sixth grade honor roll and standout player on the jv football team a few years ago but that is it. law enforcement tells cnn at this point they have no reason to believe he was on anybody's radar and no explanation for why he would have done this. the governor of texas said there simply were no warning signs, not yet at least. the fact is the investigation is far from over. but for now, everyone is left wondering why. drew griffin, cnn, atlanta. when those shots rang out at the school it wasn't clear initially what was happening and some ran to a nearby gas station for shelter and help. sprang into action to help so many of them as they came in. so, all of a sudden, just walk us through what happened yesterday. this is early in the morning and all of a sudden there are people running into the gas station.
1:43 pm
what did you think was happening? >> at first i didn't know what was going on because a girl that came in and she started crying and then i was taking customers and then i heard her talking saying there were shots fired at the school. and then that's when i saw that kids were coming to towards our store, running towards us. and we saw faculty, parents and everybody at that time at our store. it was packed inside and out. >> what were they telling you? >> they told us that there were fires that were done at the school and they were worried. some didn't have their phones. so, we let them use the store phones. some of them left their wallets, purses, didn't have no money. so, we gave them whatever they needed at the store and tried comforting them as much as we could. >> a lot of them didn't have their phones. we saw people throughout the day being escorted in to get their belongings which they
1:44 pm
understandably had to leave behind. i would imagine some of those first calls were to parents. were there parents coming toic up the kids? >> mostly parents. >> that had to be something pretty emotion tool witness, the reunion there. >> yes. now our goal is to support community as much as we could and help them to get back on their feet. >> did you, did you know -- i mean, you're so close to the high school, your store is. did you know any of the students or the faculty or even the parents who ended up there yesterday? >> parents, no, ma'am. i really don't know. there was so many people. we didn't know who was there and who wasn't. we had like almost 20 to 30 people just inside the store, yes ma'am. >> what they were saying? you mentioned the first girl who came in was in tears. >> she was crying really loudly and was like the school had been fired at and that's when we realized that people are coming towards our store needing help and we did whatever we could do
1:45 pm
in our effort to help them with it. >> did any law enforcement officers come by afterwards? did they want to talk to you or even let you know what had happened just down the street? >> we had police officers and different type of people coming in and out. and they didn't get a chance to talk much. we didn't want to bother them at that time either. they kept coming in and out. >> were you concerned for your safety at before you knew exactly what had happened? >> i saw everyone just running towards and what is going on kind of thing. >> how do you think a lot of these kids were handling the situation? it is a lot for anybody to deal with. especially for anyone in high school. >> a lot of them, they were there for each other. that's a lot of them caring for each other and hugging each other. >> when your shift was over yesterday and you had time to go home, what were the thoughts going through your mind?
1:46 pm
>> i just remembered the person coming and running crying. you know, it was sad. >> how would you describe the community of santa fe? >> the community is really nice. really friendly. like a family. everyone knows each other. >> how do you thing this will impact the community? >> i think this will make the community more closer to each other. maybe bond more closer. be there more closer. >> a lot of parents probably very appreciative you were there for their kids yesterday. >> a lot of them came by thanking for yesterday. >> appreciate you taking some time today. thank you. >> thank you. >> ana, just one of the many stories that are starting to come out as we learned more about the aftermath and as we learn more about the victims. >> just unbelievable. here we are, again. thank you, erica. coming up, first lady
