Meghan’s bridal tale in new documentary
THE Duchess of Sussex speaks about her wedding day and the elaborate veil she wore in her first documentary appearance as a member of the Royal Family.
In Queen Of The World, a two-part ITV series about the monarch’s role as head of the Commonwealth, Meghan is reunited with her bridal gown and veil as they are prepared for a new exhibition at Windsor Castle, starting in October.
She talks about the Commonwealth, and the symbolic importance of the floral Commonwealth emblems that were sewn in to her five-metre-long silk veil.
In the series the Princess Royal is interviewed about her first trip on the Royal Yacht Britannia in the 1950s, when she and the Prince of Wales, both young children, were put to work “scrubbing and polishing”.
And it is revealed the Queen had to re-record her Christmas broadcast – after the filming was interrupted by bird noise.
Designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, Meghan’s bridal gown was a simple, classic creation, but the elaborate veil was embroidered with flowers from each of the 53 Commonwealth nations at the duchess’s request.
