On May 19, 2018, the eyes of people around the world were focused on Windsor, where Prince Harry’s wedding to the American actress Meghan Markle took place. Due to its origin, it was a specific ceremony – with elements of gospel music and a sermon by an American clergyman. There were also elements of surprise, as well as mishaps of the bride and groom – Meghan even offended the queen with one gesture. However, Elizabeth II probably forgave her grandson’s chosen one, because she did she also paid tribute to one of the elements of her styling.

One of the most important accessories for the bride is, of course, the veil. No wonder Meghan Markle put great emphasis on it.
The future Duchess of Sussex on her wedding day with Harry wore a gown designed by the Givenchy fashion house, who also created her wedding accessories. The five-meter-long veil was embroidered with silk thread with flowers symbolizing the 53 countries of the Commonwealth of Nations.
Ms Waight Keller designed a veil to show the characteristic flora of each Commonwealth country combined into one spectacular floral arrangement, one Givenchy designer told thesun.co.uk.
It turns out that this pattern was not accidental. Meghan, deciding on him, was inspired by the veil of … Queen Elizabeth. Thus, she paid tribute to her beloved’s grandmother. Elizabeth II, during her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947, also wore a long veil with floral embroidery on her head.
I must admit that the Meghan veil was a perfect match for her simple outfit. Below you can see what she looked like at the wedding with Harry and how Queen Elizabeth presented herself during her ceremony.
