I spy with my little eye…
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19th wedding was one of the most iconic moments of 2018; when the American actress and the British Prince shared their vows, more than 29.2 million people watched in awe.
The wedding was held at the iconic St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The entire town shut down for the extravaganza as the streets were filled with cheerful fans and visitors who traveled to hopefully catch a glimpse of the royal couple on their big day.
One of the most anticipated moments of the entire occasion was, of course, Meghan’s gown. In the months leading up to the wedding, fans anxiously waited for clues about her dress to the surface- but nothing about her dress was known. That's why the moment Meghan stepped out of the iconic great Roles Royce that transported her and her mother, Doria Ragland, the crowds went totally insane.
Meghan looked shockingly stunning in an understated Givenchy gown. Meghan's couture gown shocked millions as it was much more simplistic than anyone had imagined; the dress featured a bateau neckline, A-line silhouette, and three-quarter-length sleeves. The real beauty of her attire was highlighted in her veil; a 16.5-foot silk tulle veil was hand-embroidered with flora representing the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.
The gown was such a shock that it'd gained massive International attention since it’s May 19th debut. Since Harry and Meghan’s wedding day, the couple has gone on Royal tours, prepared a move to Kensington, and announced their first pregnancy. But the dress has been kept under wraps.
Finally, on October 26th, 2018, Kensington Palace announced that they would be opening Harry and Meghan’s wedding attire on exhibition at Windsor Castle!
Fans can come and see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding day attire as it’s beautifully enclosed in a glass room. Fans will immediately recognize the simple gown and Harry’s black frock that he wore the day of their vows. Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s wedding day wardrobe is also on display as they took part in the day as a bridesmaid and page boy.
While any average fan will recognize the dress, its only true Royal fans that will know to look for something a little extra special in Meghan’s wedding dress; the American bride recently revealed the dress had “something blue” stitched inside the gown in the form a piece of dress worn on her first date with Prince Harry. Will you be able to spot it in the display?!
