This is such a delightful gesture.
For Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry this past spring, we obsessed over countless aspects of the day, from her nail polish color to the orchestral performance. Now, here's one more fascinating detail we've learned about the royal wedding, courtesy of the upcoming HBO documentary series, Queen of the World.
“Somewhere in [the veil worn during the ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor] there’s a piece of—did you see, the piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside? It was my something-blue,” Markle said in a promotional clip for the series, as reported by BRIDES. “It’s the fabric from the dress I wore on our first date.” Awwww, what a sweet idea.
Markle's wedding dress and veil for the ceremony was designed by Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director for Givenchy. The Duchess of Sussex's 16-foot veil — which featured flowers representing all 53 countries of the British Commonwealth — was accompanied by a tiara that Queen Elizabeth lent her for the day, which once belonged to Queen Mary.
