The new royal barely dodged a wedding gown mishap right after her wedding as she and her new husband left the altar.


Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry finally exchanged wedding vows on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, and one of the most popular topics during the royal wedding was Meghan's dress.

Other than being curious about who designed the gown, a number of social media users took notice of how Meghan almost had a wedding dress disaster.

When the newlyweds were about to head out of the chapel, the long train of Meghan's veil almost got snagged by a corner pew the moment she walked to the left. 


Although Meghan did not seem fazed by the matter, Prince Harry seemed to notice the problem and looked back to check on his bride's train.

He kept looking back to check on his new wife’s dress and it seemed as though he was ready to fix the problem.

Fortunately, he did not have to since an unidentified woman who was sitting on the corner pew, immediately noticed the problem and took it upon herself to untangle the train. 


The woman in blue stooped and fixed the situation just in time before the train was torn.

After Meghan arrived at the church, Kensington Palace made an official statement to announce that the new Duchess of Sussex's dress was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. 


Meghan and Waight Keller had a meeting in early 2018 and had worked closely together to come up with the perfect wedding gown for the former Suits actress.

For her veil, Meghan requested that all 53 countries of the Commonwealth be represented. Waight Keller intricately designed a floral embroidered piece on the veil where each country was represented with their distinguishing flora.
