The most anticipated and talked about event of the year in the whole world happened on Saturday 19 May at the royal wedding. The real life 21st century fairytale that started with just a blind date became a reality on Saturday when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married. Prince Harry is 33 years old and Meghan is 36 years old. Prince Harry became Duke of Sussex which meant that Markle automatically became the Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry is a son to the late Princess Dianna and brother to Prince William who was also his best man. There was a lot of speculation on whether Prince Harry would cut off his beard but he decided to keep it which gave the whole event a modern touch.
The royal wedding happened at St. George’s chapel in Windsor castle. A lot of speculation had surrounded the wedding gown Markle was going to put on as the world wondered who had designed the dress.
It was later revealed to be Givenchy a French luxury fashion and perfume house designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller. Ms Keller, who became the first female artistic director at famed French house Givenchy last year, chose a modest dress with long sleeves and a high neck for the bride. The dress had a five-meter-long veil. She also wore a diamond tiara worn by Queen Mary. Meghan chose the Tiara herself after being invited by the Queen herself to choose from a selection of historic pieces.
Since Meghan’s father missed the ceremony through illness, the bride walked herself half way down the aisle, and was walked the rest of the way by Prince Charles who is Harry’s father.
Meghan Markle became famous for her role in American Series Suits where she acts as Racheal. All the major actors in the series were invited to witness their colleagues’ wedding.
