The royal wedding has been a hot topic lately, from people of all ages everyone has been talking about it non-stop, and how could you not? It is, the royal wedding, after all. And truly royal indeed, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with their beautiful wedding, and inspirational love captured everyone’s attention. But there were also some subtle yet endearing hints in Meghan’s look that were too charming to ignore. Don’t know what those were? Here’s a list of all those sweet nods she gave in her wedding look,
1. Her Dress Was Inspired by American Royalty
We know that Meghan wore a silk dress with an open bateau neckline designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy that gave off chic and sleek vibes, but what most don’t know is that she, in 2016, told Glamour that she thought of the Narciso Rodriguez sheath that Carolyn Bessette Kennedy wore at her 1996 nupitals to be ‘everything goals‘ and seemed to have been inspired by that ‘clean, simple style‘.
2. Her Veil Had a Special Meaning
The 16 ft tulle and lace veil Meghan wore paid a special tribute to the British Commonwealth in honor of her new role as the Duchess of Sussex. The trim was hand-embroided, topped with flowers to represent the 53 countries in the Commonwealth – along with the winter sweet, which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace, and the California poppy, as a gesture to homeland.
3. The Tiara Is a family Heirloom
The new duchess, following Kate Middleton’s footsteps, wore a tiara straight from the Queen’s jewelry vault. she chose the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau, which belonged to Queen Elizabeth’s grandmother, and shows a central floral motif and a detachable diamond brooch, and this shows Meghan’s commitment to her new life in the royal spotlight as Prince Harry’s wife.
4. The Bridal Bouquet Was a Tribute To Princess Diana
Meghab’s flower bouquet features Diana’s favorite flowers, Forget-Me-Nots, as a tribute to her late mother-in-law, along with a nod to the royal tradition by showing a sprig of myrtle, which every royal bride as done since Queen Victoria’s reign. Making this bridal bouquet even more royal and special is the fact that Prince Harry picked some of the flowers himself from the garden in Kensington Palace, and gave them to the florist Philippa Craddock before the royal wedding.
5. Her Rings Has Sentimental Meaning
Her new wedding ring was, in true royal tradition, made from Welsh gold that was gifted to her by Queen Elizabeth. (Prince Harry, however, opted to break with tradition and wear a platinum ring). Her band was fashioned by Cleave & Company, who also designed her engagement ring, that featured a center diamond from Botswana and two smaller jewels from Princess Diana’s record.
“I’M SO LUCKY” spoke the royal couple, and we can all just say we are lucky to witness such selfless and pure love.
