This Is How Meghan Markle Surprised Prince Harry on Their Wedding Day
One of the royal bride's accessories both acted as her "something blue" and honored her husband.
We already know that Meghan Markle's wedding veil was breathtaking and beautiful. It was also incredibly thoughtful. In honor of her new home, the United Kingdom, the bride had flowers representing each of the Commonwealth's 53 countries embroidered on it. But now, we've learned that the special headpiece was personalized in another way. Better yet, it involves a romantic nod to her husband, Prince Harry.
HBO just released a sneak peak of the new documentary, Queen of the World, which spotlights Queen Elizabeth II's legacy. The Duchess of Sussex makes a guest appearance in film, which the clip previews. In the teaser, the duchess is shown admiring her Givenchy wedding dress and custom accessory for the first time since the royal wedding.
"It's amazing isn't it?" she asks her interviewer, still in awe of the bridal ensemble. As the two are examining the intricate veil, Markle lets everyone in on a surprise. "Somewhere in here there's a piece of, did you see it, the piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside? It was my something blue," she shares, adding, "It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."
It's clear that Markle's big-day outfits were full of sweet touches. In addition to her bespoke veil, the duchess carried a meaningful bouquet for her ceremony. As a statement from Kensington Palace explained, the posy contained Princess Diana's favorite flower, forget-me-nots. Then, for the couple's reception, she stepped out wearing Princess Diana's aquamarine ring.
