Well, it’s official, folks!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are married, and the former Suits actress is now a member of the royal family.
In most respects, the ceremony resembled previous royal weddings.
But in several important ways, Harry and Meghan made it their own.
Meghan wore a surprisingly simple Givenchy dress featuring hand-embroidered designs of flowers from every Commonwealth country.
Harry was decked out in full military regalia.
Both parties were openly head over heels with one another, displaying emotion we’re not accustomed to seeing from the royals.
Here’s a complete list of the fashion statements and other highlights from Harry and Meghan’s big day:
1. The Royal Couple
Meghan arrived at the ceremony decked out in a Givenchy gown that carried special symbolic meaning related Prince Harry’s appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.
2. A Special Tribute
Meghan’s five-meter veil featured hand embroidered designs representing flowers from every Commonwealth country.
3. The Tiara
As expected, Meghan also paid tribute to the royal women who came before her. The tiara that Meghan wore was provided by Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
4. A Little History
The diamond bandeau of the tiara was made in 1932. The brooch at its center was created way back in 1893
5. Woke Wedding
The ceremony reflected Harry and Meghan’s social conscience in several ways. Meghan made a feminist statement by walking part-way down the aisle alone, and her dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy’s first female artistic director.
6. The Bouquet
There’s a bit of history hidden in Meghan’s bouquet, as well. Each previous royal bride dating back to Queen Victoria planted a bit of myrtle from their own bouquet for use in future ceremonies. View SlideshowOriginal Article
