The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked down the steps of the church following their nuptials to This Little Light of Mine and have now revealed the special meaning the song has for them.

Meghan says: "This Little Light of Mine played at the end of our wedding while we were walking down the church steps. It was the music that we wanted playing when we started our lives together. Because as we all know, 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.'"
