Meghan Markle Reveals That Her 'Something Blue' Was A Special Surprise For Prince Harry

Date September 26, 2018

For the first time since the even, Meghan Markle is talking about her wedding and she certainly has a few fun secrets to share. 

A special gift for her husband

In the ITV documentary titled 'Queen of the World,' the Duchess of Sussex opened up about how she felt on her wedding day and what it has been like to be a part of the royal family.

Describing her life now as "exciting," Meghan Markle, who also said her wedding was "magical", shared some personal details about her gown and veil.

Many brides follow the tradition of having something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue on their wedding and Meghan was no different. She sewed a piece of fabric from the blue dress she wore on her first date to Prince Harry into her gown. That was her special 'something blue' that no one but her husband got to see.


It was reported at the time that the Duchess embroidered flowers from each of the 53 Commonwealth nations to her wedding veil. Meghan confirmed this as well, saying that she knew how important this was to her husband and the royal family.


She clarified that Prince Harry did not know about the additions of the flowers until the wedding and when he discovered it, he was "really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together."

And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction, and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.

Her first speech

The Duchess of Sussex also made her first speech since she became a royal. She said a few words during the launching of a cookbook she co-wrote along with some people who were affected by the Glenfell fire. 

She thanked those who were present for supporting "her first project", and also managed to get through the 3-minute speech without notes. 

It's nice to see more and more of the Duchess' personality shine through and we hope she will get other opportunities to address the public.
