Meghan's "Something Blue" Will Give You All The Feels
Must have some confetti in our eyes...
If you're anything like us, or a fashionista worth your salt, you loved Meghan Markle's Givenchy wedding dress and refused to listen to other people say how it was "too plain", "too big" or "too boring".
Honestly people, the girl looked like a million dollars and you're just jealous.
Anyway. Here's a lovely new tidbit that may melt those naysayers' cold, icy hearts: the gown contained Meghan Markle's "something blue," and her choice might bring a tiny tear to even the steeliest eye.
Markle revisited her wedding dress for the new ITV documentary titled Queen Of The World, a two-part look at the Queen and the future of the Royal Family that will air in the UK on September 25. The Duchess of Sussex revealed that her "something blue" was sewn inside the dress -- and it turns out Markle chose a piece of the blue dress she wore for her first date with Prince Harry to carry with her on their "magical day" and had it hidden in the gown somewhere.
"It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date," she said.
Just so darn cute.
Also. Meghan didn't see her dress in all its glory until the actual morning of her wedding -- and she only saw her wedding veil on the day she wore it to St George's Chapel.
The veil -- 16 feet of silk tulle -- bore special significance of course as it featured hand-embroidered flowers from each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. In the documentary, Markle explained, "I knew that it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn't know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together."
She added, "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."
If that has made you feel more fond of the frock, then you can see it in person at Windsor Castle -- along with a replica of Harry's military get-up -- from October 26 to January 6, 2019; then at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh from June 14, 2019. Plenty of time to get those plane tickets in order.
It sounds like Markle herself enjoyed revisiting her wedding gown for the ITV documentary, too. Her response to her Givenchy ensemble? "It's nice to see it again. It's beautiful."
