The Royal Wedding of the year has finally happened! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had finally tied-the-knot on 19th May 2018. Everybody seems to be very excited about this magically fairy-tale royal wedding.
When it all started
Who would have known that an ordinary girl who casually took a picture in front of the castle at the age of 15 would end up marrying the prince and become Duchess of Sussex 22 years later? This must be a match from heaven. These two lovebirds were introduced by their mutual friends over a blind date in early July 2016. That’s when it all started.
St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle
The wedding was held at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle since many members of the British royal family, including Prince Edward, have been married at the chapel. The couple has chosen St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle as a venue, which indicates that Meghan and Harry will have a very different wedding than Will and Kate. St. George’s has a capacity of 800 people is much smaller than the Abbey’s 2,000, a fitting size for the future King and Queen of England.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchanged vows in front of 600 guests including the Queen, more than 30 royals and famous faces such as Oprah Winfrey, Sir Elton John, actor Idris Elba and tennis champion Serena Williams.
The celebration was built up in a black-tie wedding dinner staged at Frogmore House, hosted by Charles for 200 of the couple’s closest friends and family while James Corden reportedly acted as compere. The married couple arrived at the evening reception in ultimate style – riding in silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero. The silver-blue Jaguar was originally manufactured in 1968 and has been converted into electric power at Frogmore House in Windsor.
The stunning wedding dress of the royal wedding
Meghan Markle wore a stunning yet elegant white gown – paired with a white veil and boat neck for the royal wedding. The stunning design was created by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female Artistic Director at French fashion house Givenchy. Meghan Markle also wore two gowns, one to the ceremony, and one to the reception of the royal wedding.
Markle’s second dress, which was designed by Stella McCartney and featured a high neck, was much less traditional than her formal wedding gown. Prince Harry and his best man the Duke of Cambridge were both wearing the frock-coat uniform of the Blues and Royals.
All of us at wedding.com.my would like to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and wish them a very happy and long-lasting marriage.
