Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, tied the knot in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in what has been dubbed the Wedding of the Year.
When the actress arrived at the scene, she revealed an extravagant wedding veil, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy.
Meghan expressed a wish to have all 53 Commonwealth countries with her throughout the ceremony.
Ms. Keller designed a veil depicting the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country brought together in a spectacular flower arrangement.
As she climbed the steps to the chapel, Meghan’s tall veil floated behind her and gently hid her face from visibility.
Considerable time has been spent researching the flora of each Commonwealth country and Ms Waight Keller has taken great care to ensure that each flower is unique, according to the royal website.
The veil was five meters long and was made of silk tulle with a border of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.
The site said: âEach flower has been worked flat, in three dimensions to create a unique and delicate design. Workers spent hundreds of hours sewing and washing their hands meticulously every thirty minutes to keep the tulle and threads spotless.
In addition to Commonwealth flora, Ms Markle also picked two personal favorites:
Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace across from Nottingham Cottage, and the California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the state flower of Ms. Markle’s birthplace in California.
The beautiful bride wore a long white dress by designer Clare Waight Keller, now artistic director of Givenchy.
