It is always a treat when fans get the first hand of their favorite royals. In the exhibition A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Holyroodhouse in Scotland, Duchess Meghan can be heard about her wedding day and how ‘intimate’ it was – despite being watched by millions around the world!
“A large level of detail went to the planning of our wedding day,” she says in a recording that is being played in the exhibition. “We knew how large the size of the event would be, so when making choices that were truly personal and meaningful, it could make the whole experience intimate.”
Some special details on their big day certainly made their royal wedding different from the rest. An example of this was Meghan who chose Pastor Michael Curry, a pastor from her youth, to give a sermon. Another was to have a gospel choir sing “Stand By Me.”
Even her wedding dress was an ode to their thriving relationship and her new family. A piece of fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Harry was sewn on the inside of her Clare Waight Keller frock. The veil was also decorated with flowers that represented every Commonwealth country.
“I chose the frock coat as a uniform, with my grandmother’s permission, because I think it’s one of the smartest household cavalry uniforms,” says the Duke of Sussex about his outfit during recording. “It’s one of my favorites, and I was lucky that I could wear it on the day.”
The exhibition can be seen in Holyroodhouse until 6 October 2019.
