What songs were played at Harry and Meghan's wedding?

In the first episode of their podcast, which was released in December, Meghan and Harry revealed that Etta James' version of This Little Light of Mine was an important part of their big day. The song was playing as they walked down the church steps after the ceremony.

Harry noted that they chose the track as a reminder of "the power we each have within us to make this world a better place", while Meghan added, "it was the music that we wanted playing when we started our lives together."

Meghan also cited Martin Luther King's memorable words, "as we all know, 'darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.'"

As for their first dance at their wedding reception, the couple chose Wilson Pickett's I'm In Love—and you can listen to both romantic tracks below.

We can't believe these two have been married for a whole three years already.
