Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have resigned as members of the royal family and moved to California, but that certainly doesn’t stop them from making headlines.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made special headlines this month when they sat down for an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey, a rare move for the notoriously private couple.
The Duke and Duchess spoke about everything from mental health and their relationship with the royal family to their current pregnancy. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even revealed that they are expecting a little girl.
This week, however, as the wedding day drew closer in May, the royal couple hit the headlines when an anecdote surfaced from their 2018 wedding involving Meghan’s dress.
The Duchess wore a stunning open white Beateau gown with three-quarter sleeves designed by Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy’s artistic director.
The simple dress was a huge hit with the general public, but according to recent reports, the Queen was “surprised” by the choice.
It wasn’t the design that reportedly surprised the monarch, but the color palette that royal sources told the Mail on Sunday that the queen hadn’t expected Meghan to wear white.
“The queen is said to have expressed her surprise that Meghan, a divorced woman, wore such a white dress to her wedding,” the source told the publication, with the more obvious prediction of the color palette being an off-white hue like champagne.
In any case, Meghan looked beautiful!
