The Sussexes will celebrate their third wedding anniversary this week (19th May) and it's been revealed that back in December they actually shared previously unknown details from their big day as part of their Spotify podcast series, Archewell Audio.

At the start of one episode, Prince Harry says, "as we all know, it's been a YEAR. And we really want to honour the compassion and kindness that has helped so many people get through it."

Harry and Meghan then go on to speak about their 2018 wedding day, revealing that their wedding song was the positive and powerful track Amen, This Little Light of Mine by Etta James.

According to Harry, the couple chose the song as a reference to "the power we have within us to make this world a better place." He described the track as "a song that means so much to us", while the Duchess explained it was playing "while we were walking down the steps of the church."

Megan went on to say, "it was the music that we wanted playing when we started our lives together." She then quoted Martin Luther King, saying, "Because as we all know, darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that…"

Prince Harry concluded by saying, "the message of this song is one we hold so dearly."

Harry and Meghan's first dance at their wedding reception at Frogmore House was to I'm In Love by 60s soul singer, Wilson Pickett, according to royal biography Finding Freedom, which was released last August.

The American soul singer is famous for many tracks, including In the Midnight Hour, Mustang Sally and Funky Broadway.
