Meghan Markle Reveals Royal Wedding Details That Made Her Big Day ‘Feel Intimate’
A little over a year after tying the knot, Meghan Markle got candid about her royal wedding to her husband, Prince Harry. As fans of the couple, we must admit this is definitely a treat.
The 37-year-old revealed never-before-known details of her big day in an audio guide for the exhibit A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which is now located at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland after being on display at Windsor Castle. “A great level of detail went into the planning of our wedding day,” she said. “We knew how large the scale of the event would be, so in making choices that were really personal and meaningful, it could make the whole experience feel intimate.”
The duke, 34, spilled details about the importance of his own wedding day attire, and it turns out it actually honors the British army. “I chose the frock coat as a uniform, with permission from my grandmother, because I think it’s one of the smartest Household Cavalry uniforms,” he said in the guide. “It’s one of my favorites, and I was very fortunate to be able to wear that on the day.”
It makes sense considering Harry served in the army for a decade. During his service, he rose to the rank of captain and even undertook two Afghanistan tours, according to the official Royal website. “He continues to work in support of his fellow servicemen, promoting support for wounded men and women as they adapt to life post-injury,” read the statement.
When Harry’s not busy helping others, he’s most likely spending time with his son, Archie, whom he and Meghan welcomed to the world on May 6. Recently, Harry celebrated his very first holiday with his newborn. “Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex,” read the caption on the sweet sepia-toned photo of Harry and Archie, which was shared by the royal couple’s official Instagram account. We’re excited to see what future memories the royal parents will continue to create with their little one!
