The royal wedding is finally here! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot on May 19 and we couldn’t be happier for the royal couple. The two exchanged their first official kiss outside of St. George’s Church at Windsor Castle right on the staircase, and it was a picture-perfect moment. But how did the epic smooch rank compared to Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s? These side-by-side photos of the royal couples kissing make it clear that there are some major differences.

First off, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big moment took place on the balcony at Buckingham Palace (along with Charles and Diana’s).
