We thought we knew everything there was to know about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding, but the newly anointed Duchess of Sussex has let us in on a little secret: She hid her "something blue" on her wedding veil, and no one even noticed! How sneaky... but also incredibly sweet.
In an exclusive sneak peek obtained by People from a forthcoming HBO documentary about the royal family, Queen of the World, Markle spilled some revelations about her 16-foot wedding veil. As it turns out, on top of the intricate embroidery, she snuck in a piece of blue fabric from the dress she was wearing on her first date with Prince Harry.
"Somewhere in here, there’s a piece of, did you see it?" she dished. "The piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside. It was my something blue. It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."
On the day of the royal wedding, our jaws collectively dropped when Markle entered Windsor Castle donning an astonishingly beautiful Givenchy dress, a lengthy veil, and Queen Mary's bandeau tiara that Queen Elizabeth II loaned her for the occasion.
We were also quick to spot Princess Diana's aquamarine cocktail ring, which she wore on her right finger, as well as the pair of Aquazurra shoes she sported that were dyed with a blue tint — the items were her "something old" and "something new."
But the sweet little tribute she did for Prince Harry? That was something we definitely did not see coming!
The Duchess of Sussex also shared the significance of her cathedral-length veil to the Commonwealth. The headpiece was embroidered with 53 distinctive flowers from each of the countries.
"I’m really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together," the Duchess said. "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."
Excuse us while we search through all our Markle pics and find out if she snuck in any more sweet details!
