Meghan Markle arrived at St. George’s Chapel venue for her big day wearing a Royal wedding dress. Markel’s dress was Givenchy, designed by British designer, Clare Waight Keller, the first female designer of the French Fashion house.
The dress is double-bonded silk cady. The veil had a sweet tribute sewn in. This was due to Markle’s wish of having all 53 countries of the commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony.
The palace wrote, “Ms Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.”
In addition, Markle had two personal favorites added in: “Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy (Eschscholzia Californica) the state flower from Ms. Markle’s Place of birth, California,” according to the palace.
With her dress and veil, Markle wore Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, “Lent to Ms Markle by the Queen,” the palace wrote. “The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893.”
Markle was photographed wearing a veil and the tiara when she left Cliveden House with her mom on that day.
On the day before the wedding, Page Six reported Markle’s dress designer was Stella McCarthy, although it wasn’t confirmed.
According to the announcement of dress details from the Palace, “after meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetics, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanor. Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British Talent who has now served as the Creative Head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloe and now Givenchy.”
