Millions of people from around the world watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s spectacular wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, but while many adored her dress, the Queen was surprised she had chosen the color white.
The Duchess of Sussex walked down the aisle in a Givenchy-designed dress with a floor-length dress, an open boat neckline and three-quarter sleeves.
While looking dreamy, the queen was reportedly surprised by the color choice as Meghan was divorced as the color traditionally symbolizes purity.
A royal source told the Mail on Sunday: “The queen reportedly expressed surprise that Meghan, a divorced woman, wore such a white dress to her wedding.”
However, the queen didn’t hold it against her when she gave the former actress permission to wear the color.
The 39-year-old had previously married the film producer Trevor Engelson and maintained the relationship for two years.
Before they married, they met in 2004, were in a relationship for six years before getting engaged in 2010.
However, due to “irreconcilable differences”, their marriage did not last and they separated in 2013.
