It has been over a year since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry said ‘yes’ at St George’s Chapel in Windsor last May. That day, Meghan surprised Harry with a gentle gesture, as she had embroidered flowers from all countries of the Commonwealth into her beautiful six foot veil. Meghan wore an unforgettable Givenchy dress on her wedding day and her veil featured beautiful, intricate embroidery. Speaking in an HBO documentary, Queen of the World Meghan revealed that Harry had no idea she would join the Commonwealth in such an intimate way.
“[Harry was] really excited to find out that I would make this choice for our day together, ”Meghan told a royal curator as she looked at the dress.
She also revealed that it was not just Harry who was delighted with the choice of embroidery in his wedding attire, stating: “I think the other family members had a similar reaction,” she said. -she adds.
Express.co.uk spoke to stylist Melita Latham and she said Meghan’s choice of veil reveals the role and stance she wants to take in joining the royal family.
She said: “Meghan is a strong woman and knows exactly what she wants. Her embroidered veil pattern was a clear example of Meghan’s wish to pay tribute to new beginnings, her husband and the Commonwealth.
“The intricate details and workmanship that took 500 hours to complete is a unique symbol of unity, being part of the royal family and indeed of the world, the Commonwealth.”
She added: ‘Meghan’s two personal favorites are believed to be the Wintersweet which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace and the California poppy from Meghan’s birthplace in California.
“It was a huge and sweet gesture to bring so many ‘worlds’ together. A very beautiful sign that Meghan wants to bring harmony, love and support to her husband’s charities and bring us all closer together.”
