Meghan’s bridal tale in new doc­u­men­tary

Western Mail - - UK & WORLD NEWS -

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.
