Meghan Markle’s Givenchy gown worn during her wedding to Prince Harry may be the most famous wedding dress of 2018, but one person who wasn’t a huge fan of the dress was Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. As Meghan had been married before, the Queen didn’t feel it was appropriate for the Duchess to wear white during her May wedding to Harry. No one likes a grandmazilla at the wedding.
In a new article by the Daily Mail, the website says that the Queen “expressed surprise” over Meghan’s choice to wear white, which in royal talk means she was hella mad. Even though Markle’s dress was conservative, created by British designer Clare Waight Keller from the fashion house Givenchy, and the veil featured embroidered flowers from every country that is part of the British commonwealth, the Queen still had some notes. If there’s one thing to remember with weddings, it’s that you can’t please everybody.
Meghan has undoubtedly helped raise the profile of the royals since she and Harry began dating in 2016, ushering in a new era of inclusivity in the Palace. The pair’s wedding was watched by more people in North America than Prince William and Kate’s 2011 wedding and Meghan has consistently been impressing the public with her efforts to join husband Harry on his royal tours and speaking engagements.
