Meghan Markle's 'something blue' was actually the most romantic thing ever
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, which was held back in May at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, was full of heartwarming moments. There were all the touching tributes made to Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, that kiss, and of course, the way that the now-Duke and Duchess of Sussex gazed at each other throughout the ceremony.
And, of course, everyone from Kensington Palace's die-hard supporters to their biggest skeptics had something to say about the erstwhile actress's sartorial choices. Meghan wore a Givenchy gown, by way of Clare Waight Keller, which was paired with Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara. She accessorised with all sorts of accoutrements, including the late Princess Diana's aquamarine ring, which many believed to have been her "something blue".
But as it transpires, Meghan's "something blue" was something else entirely, and it's oh-so-romantic.
In a clip from the upcoming Queen of the World documentary, which is due to air on ITV on Tuesday, September 25th, Meghan is reunited with her wedding dress for the first time. It's evident that she loves the Givenchy gown, proclaiming "It's amazing, isn't it?", and admiring the veil, saying "The work that they did here is just so beautiful."
The Duchess of Sussex then elaborated on the touching tribute she made to the 53 nations of the Commonwealth, which was seen on her wedding veil. '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," the 37-year-old explained. "It was important for me, especially now being a part of the royal family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated."
She added that her choice of veil "surprised" other members of the royal family. "I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we're gonna continue to do within the Commonwealth countries. So, yeah, it was good news all around, I think, so I hope people liked it as much as I liked helping to create it."
I mean, c'mon.
Speaking about the upcoming two-part documentary, ITV's Controller of Factual, Jo Clinton-Davis said "The Queen is a unique figure on the world stage, with a huge depth of experience having met more global leaders than any previous British monarch and serving longer than all of them."
"This film is a rare opportunity to see Her Majesty up close and behind the scenes in this role, which means so much to her and has been so significant for Britain and the Commonwealth."
Well, we can't wait!
