Apart from being a cliche, is ‘tying the knot’ entirely appropriate for a royal wedding?

I would have done it like this:

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will greet the crowds after their noon wedding with a carriage procession through the streets of Windsor.

Note that it doesn’t say ‘it emerged yesterday’, another tired old formula. In any case the second par says ‘last night ‘ – it can’t be both.

I think I would have restrained myself from using ‘High Noon date with destiny’ too.
