The wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle
On Saturday, May 19, the most awaited wedding of the year was held. The solemn wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle took place in the chapel of St. George in Windsor Castle. The newlyweds received the titles of the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex. Megan came to the ceremony with her mother Doria Ragland. The altar was held by Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
More than two thousand guests were invited to the event, including Oprah Winfrey, Serena Williams, Victoria and David Beckham, Amal and George Clooney, Carrie Mulligan and Marcus Mumford, Tom Hardy, Priyanka Chopra and other celebrities. The broadcast of the ceremony was watched by millions of people around the world.
Megan McRahl chose the Givenchy dress for her wedding, which was worked on by creative director Claire White Keller. Claire Waite Keller herself says that she wanted to combine the Givenchy codes and modern forms in this dress, which will look actual years later. “It was a great honor for me and the whole team to work with Miss Markle, get to know her closer and realize all that was conceived together.” For example, the dress was created in the best traditions of Givenchy, using only six stitches, and its key element was the décolleté bateau – restrained, but focusing on the delicate collarbones of the Duchess of Sussex. Details of the image also created Keller. For example, shoes have become a rethought version of the model from the collection Givenchy Couture spring-summer 2018.
The wedding headpiece of the bride is a diamond tiara, which formerly belonged to Queen Mary of Teck, the grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II, and which the latter gave to the Megan Markle ceremony, as well as the veil of Givenchy. Embroidery on the veil symbolically shows the flowers of fifty-three countries of the British Commonwealth. “The diamond tiara was created in 1932, and the central stone dates from 1893,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
Duchess of Cambridge for the wedding chose the pale yellow outfit of the British brand Alexander McQueen and the hat of Philip Treacy. This dress Kate put on already twice: on the baptism of Princess Charlotte and on the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. And today her exit was the first official appearance in public after the birth of the third child, Prince Louis, in April this year.
