MEGHAN ON HER WEDDING
Meghan Markle makes an appearance on the documentary and reveals secret details about her Givenchy wedding dress.
Markle has described her new life as a royal and an ‘exciting’ time and looks back on her wedding as a ‘magical day’.
As is the bride’s tradition she needs something borrowed, something blue and something old, and it’s by using this tradition that she hid something in her dress.
SECRET OF THE DRESS
Sewn into her gown was her ‘something blue’, a piece of a dress she had worn on her first date with Harry.
Her ‘something borrowed’ came from the monarch herself, the Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, which held the veil in place.
This tiara was made in 1932, the entire brooch dating back to 1893 according to the Kensington Palace.
Meghan’s veil was made of five-meter long silk tulle hand-embroidered in silk and organza featuring the flora representing the Commonwealth countries.
Having not seen it until the wedding day it complimented the Waight Keller bridal gown which was simple and classic.

“It’s nice to see it again. It’s beautiful.”
The duchess quoted on the ITV website:
"It was important for me, especially now being a part of the royal family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated. I knew that it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn't know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together."
