Meghan Markle's Reveals Her Touching 'Something Blue' For Wedding
The trailer for Queen of the World is finally here, a HBO documentary about Queen Elizabeth II, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex makes an appearance.
In the clip, the former Suits star sees her wedding dress for the first time since her big day, and makes a touching revelation about her 'something blue'.
The royal secretly included a memento from her first date with Prince Harry, a piece of the fabric she wore on their first date was sewn into her stunning wedding veil.
"Somewhere in here there's a piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside - it was my something blue," she smiled sweetly while running her fingers through the veil. "It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."
"That's about the most romantic thing I have ever heard," the interviewer remarked when Meghan told her.
It is traditional for a bride to wear something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue for her nuptials, and despite having a much more modern ceremony than previous royal weddings, the 37 year old still followed the age-old tradition.
The couple have opened up about their first date in the past. When they announced their engagement back in November 2017, Meghan revealed, "It was a blind date."
Harry adorably added, "I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her. I was like, 'Okay, well I'm going to have to up my game.'"
In a new documentary on the monarchy, titled Queen of the World, Meghan is admiring her beautiful custom-made wedding gown, designed by Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller.
The veil also had another significant meaning, with each of the individual flowers representing the 53 nations of the Commonwealth featuring on the delicate embroidery.
Meghan explained: "I'd originally said to Clare, the designer, how can we incorporate that? Would it be the state flower, country flower of each place? And it was her idea to do wild flowers, which I think ended up being a really beautiful way to embody the feeling of it."
The former actress also revealed that she and Clare included a touching reminder of Meghan's homeland.
"I stuck in a couple of flowers that were important to me as well personally, but there is a California poppy in there which has nothing to do with the Commonwealth, but it's where I'm from," she gushed.
Meghan's dress and veil were estimated to have cost more than $500,000 (Dhs1.8 million).
