Megan Markle has revealed her royal wedding dress to the world, wearing British designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy.
The stunning gown features long sleeves and a boat neckline.
Meghan has styled her hair in a low bun and is wearing Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to her by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893.
The world caught a glimpse of the beautiful bride as she drove to St George’s Chapel at Windscor Castle with her mother, Doria Ragland.
t has been previously reported her dress cost between $500,000 and $600,000.
Ms Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.
Meghan wanted to have all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.
The Veil and The Tiara
The veil is five meters long and made from silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.
Each flower was worked flat, in three dimensions to create a unique and delicate design. The workers spent hundreds of hours meticulously sewing and washing their hands every thirty minutes to keep the tulle and threads pristine.
It’s clear that Markle is wearing a tiara, just like Kate Middleton before her. While Kate wore the the Halo Tiara—given to the Queen Mother by her husband prior to his coronation—Markle is wearing the Filigree Tiara, on loan from the Queen.
