Prince Harry was the first royal in 125 years to get married in a beard

When Prince Harry rolled up to St. George's Chapel on Saturday morning -- waving to the public, greeting the guards and seeming ever-so-nervous -- we couldn't help but notice how dapper he looked in his and William's matching frockcoat uniform. Seriously, who doesn't love a man in uniform?

The prince was part of the British Army for over a decade, which began as a recruit in 2005 at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and ended in 2015 with two tours in Afghanistan. And although he isn't an active member of the army, military rules require that active members are always clean shaven.

However, for his wedding to Meghan Markle, the new Duke of Sussex had to receive special permission from the queen to sport his military uniform while in a beard, becoming the first royal in over 125 years to keep his facial hair. A statement released by the Palace on the day of the wedding read, "Her Majesty The Queen gave her permission for Prince Harry to get married in his uniform."

According to reports, the last royal to maintain his facial hair during his own wedding was George V, Queen Elizabeth's grandfather, when he married Mary of Teck in 1893.
