Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex kisses his wife Meghan,

A historic royal wedding in more ways than one

In a fairy-tale wedding at England's Windsor Castle Saturday, Prince Harry married American actress Meghan Markle, and the two became the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The highlights:

Prince Harry mouthed "You look amazing" and "I'm so lucky," when the bride approached the alter.
Markle was met midway down the aisle by Prince Charles, who escorted her in father Thomas Markle's absence. (He recently suffered a heart attack and was reportedly unable to attend on medical advice.)
The newlyweds broke tradition by sharing their first kiss on the steps of St. George's Chapel instead of on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
The couple honored Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, in various ways throughout the wedding.
Duchess Meghan swapped outfits, opting for a high-neck lily-white silk crepe gown from Stella McCartney, before heading to an intimate sit-down dinner with Prince Harry in a silver-blue 1968 Jaguar.

Intelligence Committee Democrats: Trump Jr.'s reported meeting with Arab princes could be crime

The top Democrats on the Senate and House intelligence committees said Sunday Trump campaign officials may have committed a crime if a new report proves true: that three months before the 2016 election, President Trump's son met with two Arab princes and an Israeli political operative who offered to help his father win the presidential election. On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Donald Trump Jr. met on Aug. 3, 2016 with two wealthy princes, from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, along with Joel Zamel, an Israeli expert in "social media manipulation." The three men reportedly told Trump Jr. that they wanted to support the Trump campaign.

Texas mourns after 10 dead in school shooting

A Texas high school community began the long healing process over the weekend after a 17-year-old gunman opened fire in a first-period art class Friday morning, leaving 10 dead and 13 injured. Santa Fe High School students were allowed back inside their classrooms Saturday in small groups to gather their belongings. Families and friends began sharing stories of heroics and tragedy from the grim scene as investigators hunted for a motive. Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the suspect who shouted "surprise" before shooting , appeared in court Friday evening. He admitted to the massacre and told officers he targeted students he didn't like. The family of one of the victim's says they believe their daughter was targeted because she repeatedly rejected the gunman's advances to date her. 

Hawaii volcano poses a new threat: Acid from Kilauea's lava, called 'laze,' pouring into the ocean

After destroying dozens of houses, lava from the Kilauea volcano has now reached the ocean, presenting a new health threat to Hawaiians. Civil defense authorities on Hawaii posted a warning to stay clear of any lava stream that is flowing into the ocean. When the super hot lava hits the cooler sea water, it produces what is called "laze," hydrochloric acid steam that pours into the air along with fine particles of glass. "Health hazards of laze include lung, eye and skin irritation," the agency said in a message to residents. "Be aware that the laze plume travels with the wind and can change direction without warning."
