The Wedding Dress, Bridesmaids’ Dresses and Page Boys' Uniforms

The Wedding Dress: Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy

Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.

After meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour. Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, ChloΓ©, and now Givenchy.

Ms. Markle and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design. The dress epitomises a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952.

The Design

True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasises the slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.

The Fabric

Following extensive research by Ms. Waight Keller in fabric mills throughout Europe, an exclusive double bonded silk cady was developed. Perfect for the round sculptural look required, the silk cady has a soft matt lustre whilst the bonding process and pure white colour chosen by Ms. Markle and Ms. Waight Keller bring a fresh modernity to the dress.

The Veil

Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having 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 Commonwealth family of nations – of which Her Majesty The Queen is Head –will be a central part of Prince Harry’s and Ms. Markle’s official work following His Royal Highness’s appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Ms. Markle wanted to express her gratitude for the opportunity to support the work of the Commonwealth by incorporating references to its members into the design of her wedding dress.

Significant time was spent researching the flora of each Commonwealth country and much care was taken by Ms. Waight Keller to ensure that every flower is unique.

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.

In addition to the flora of the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle also selected two personal favourites:

Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) the State flower from Ms. Markle’s place of birth, California.

Symmetrically placed at the very front of the veil, crops of wheat are delicately embroidered and blend into the flora, to symbolise love and charity.

A selection of flora distinctive from every state member of the Commonwealth.

The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893.

The bandeau, which is made of diamonds and platinum, is formed as a flexible band of eleven sections, pierced with interlaced ovals and pavΓ© set with large and small brilliant diamonds. The centre is set with a detachable brooch of ten brilliant diamonds.

The diamond bandeau was made for Queen Mary and specifically designed to accommodate the centre brooch. This brooch was given as a present to the then Princess Mary in 1893 by the County of Lincoln on her marriage to Prince George, Duke of York. The bandeau and the brooch were bequeathed by Queen Mary to The Queen in 1953.

The Bride is wearing earrings and bracelet made by Cartier.

Wedding Shoes

The wedding shoes are based on a Givenchy refined pointed couture design made of a silk duchess satin.

The Bride’s Bouquet

Prince Harry handpicked several flowers yesterday from their private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock.

The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favourite flower. The couple specifically chose them to be included in Ms. Markle’s bouquet to honour the memory of the late Princess on this special day.

The Bride's bouquet is a petite design, pulled together in a gentle, ethereal, relaxed style with delicate blooms also including scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon.

The myrtle sprigs are from stems planted at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, by Queen Victoria in 1845, and from a plant grown from the myrtle used in The Queen’s wedding bouquet of 1947.

The tradition of carrying myrtle begun after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany. In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today.

The myrtle was first carried by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, when she married in 1858.

Bridal Hair and Make-Up

Ms. Markle's hair was styled by Serge Normant, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.

Bridesmaids’ Dresses

Clare Waight Keller designed the six young Bridesmaids’ dresses in the Givenchy Haute Couture Atelier in Paris.

The dresses were designed to have the same timeless purity as Ms. Markle's dress.

Each dress is sculpted in Ivory silk Radzimir, and is high-waisted with short puff sleeves and hand finished with a double silk ribbon detail tied at the back in a bow. The Bridesmaids’ dresses include pockets and pleated skirts to create a relaxed and luxurious silhouette.

The Bridesmaids are wearing white leather Aquazurra shoes; each pair is monogrammed with the Bridesmaids initials, and the wedding date. The shoes are a gift from Ms. Markle to the young ladies as a keepsake of the special day.

Bridesmaids’ Flowers

The bridesmaids each have flower crowns selected by Prince Harry and Ms. Markle, which have been designed by florist Philippa Craddock.

The Bridesmaids' flowers replicate the flowers used in the bridal bouquet.

Page Boys' Uniforms

The four Pages are wearing a miniature version of the Blues and Royals frockcoat. The uniform draws its insignia from the Blues and Royals, which is an old Regiment of The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Both are also wearing Blues and Royals frockcoats for the Wedding Day.

The frockcoats are made from blue doeskin, single-breasted in style with a stand-up collar and completed with figured braiding of Regimental pattern. The figured braiding has been scaled down for the Pages, as otherwise it would have gone above their shoulders.

As a special memento, each Page has their initials embroidered in gold on their shoulder straps. The Pages are not wearing hats or white waist belts for practical reasons.

Their leg garments are made from blue/black wool barathea with three-quarter scarlet stripes fastened with a leather strap.

The uniforms were cut and made by the tailors Dege & Skinner in Savile Row.

Mother of the Bride's Dress

Ms. Ragland wears a custom dress and day coat designed by creative directors of Oscar de la Renta, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim.

Ms. Ragland's shoes are designed by Edgardo Osorio of Aquazurra, and her custom hat was designed exclusively for her by British milliner Stephen Jones, O.B.E., whom Ms. Markle has worked closely with since moving to the UK.

Stephen Jones was also commissioned by Ms. Markle to create custom hats for several of her closest friends.

A central arch will serve to frame the royal couple as a congregation of family, friends and well-wishers watch them take their vows. Two large arrangements also sit either side of the High Altar in the Windsor Castle chapel. The display, which also features foxgloves with branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, also extends to outside the chapel, lining the West Steps and surrounding the West Door through which Meghan will enter the church."

“The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales.  His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. Prince Harry thus becomes HRH The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become HRH The Duchess of Sussex.”

More from The Telegraph:

'Prince Harry has been made the Duke of Sussex on his wedding day by his  grandmother the Queen, Buckingham Palace has announced. Meghan Markle will become the Duchess of Sussex on marriage, the palace said. Harry was also given Scottish and Northern Irish titles, becoming the Earl of  Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.'

Victoria Arbiter reports:


08:05 - The full Order of Service is available to download here. The Palace said: "Like any couple getting married, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have taken a great deal of care in selecting all elements for their service. This has been a collaborative effort led by Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. They have also sought the advice of The Prince of Wales for the orchestral music before the Service begins."

More from The Telegraph:

'When Meghan Markle enters St George’s Chapel to begin the last steps in her journey to join the Royal family today, the state trumpeters will sound a fanfare that has accompanied its brides for generations.
Before long, as she says her vows to Prince Harry, that time-honoured tradition will give way to striking modernity, with the soaring voices of a gospel choir singing music from Ben E King and Etta James.
Saturday's Royal wedding ceremony, with each detail chosen by the couple, will blend the best-loved elements of British pageantry with a modern outlook that reflects the Prince and Ms Markle, in a service designed to capture the best of each of their heritage.
From the music of Sir Charles Hubert Parry and a reading from the Bible to a procession of a newlyweds accompanied by a rendition of This Little Light of Mine, their choices go to the heart of their relationship: English customs blended with an American influence, offset by an overriding message of joy.'

We can look forward to these vows later today.


The Order of Service confirms Prince Harry will wear a wedding ring.

07:45 - Good morning dear readers! Today's the day when Harry and Meghan will say "I do" in front of their nearest and dearest at St George's Chapel. Meghan's currently at Cliveden with her mother Doria. We have a very special and memorable day ahead.

    My predictions for the day: Meghan will wear a dress by by Phillipa Lepley and the Queen Mary Fringe tiara (my dream scenarios). Harry will wear his new Royal Marines ceremonial uniform. And, they will exit the church as TRH, The Duke and Duchess of Ross.

    After reading through the order of service that was published at midnight, I was so pleased to see confirmation that Harry WILL wear a ring. Yay!

    Chat soon, my lovelies. Can't wait for the party to begin!!

      I wasn't a fan of Sussex before learning that history, mostly because saying 'Duchess of Sussex' out loud is a bit of a tongue twister...but I'm a fan now, after learning about the original Duke of Sussex.

  12. Duke of Sussex. I was really hoping for Windsor. I know the feelings about that but it would have been great for the most popular prince and his very popular new wife to change the ill feelings surrounding that title.

    1. Sharyn from AUS19 May 2018 at 08:57

      I don't think Windsor would have happened because too easy for the media to draw comparisons: a divorced American entering the royal family. Also, the queen's father (and by extension, the queen) were quite hurt by the abdication and the impact on the family. It may have been many years ago to the public, but possibly too soon for her majesty?

      Delete
    2. Celeste from Nigeria19 May 2018 at 09:09

      Duke of Windsor will be serious distraction and comparisons with late holder considering he married a twice divorced woman and abdicated on that ground. This title is perfect considering the tweet that the last duke of Sussex campaigned for the abolition of slavery.

  13. What an exciting day and it's finally here! I have notified my family that I will be firmly glued to the telly today so that means no cooking for me today lol! Stocked up on all the goodies last night so that I can enjoy the day :)

    Wonderful news about Harry's dukedom! The atmosphere looks to be electric in Windsor and it is going to be a beautiful sunny day. I will be checking in to the blog regularly but I think the toughest part of today is going to be holding back the tears thinking about Diana. I know that she must be looking down on Harry and Meghan today and beaming with pride!

    Congratulations Harry and Meghan! Here's wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and love :) You both deserve it, cheers!

    1. Hello Avee! I love how many of us are all set up, cozy & tucking into our own gathering of goodies for The Day! I too will be shedding tears for so many reasons, not the least of which is The Legacy of Diana! She planted the seeds of so many aspects of W&H's personalitles & priorities! But how lovely that Charles will have such a Special Position on the day with Meghan! Someone yesterday commented about how we do forget that he was a single father & really was strong for the boys as they grew up in the years after having lost Diana. I think that's a fair nod! So I'll be emotional as he walks with Meghan today! :) xo

      Funny...... Max Foster just spoke up on CNN & said, "Wait, I just have to cut in here with breaking news.. I believe we have a shot of Victoria Beckham breaking into a smile! Yep, we do & there it is (as the camera played it back)" lol lol lol :)

It's great that they've released the order of service, so that everyone can be part of it, no matter where they are.

    Good morning al!! Just done with my second job of the day, night shift bartending here in Montana USA! Glad I’m up to see the start of this wonderful day, 2 am here! My money was on the duke of Sussex although I was half hoping for something else!? Can hardly wait to see the tiara, my money on strathmore, and her dress not to mention what kate and the kids are wearing! Going to be a great day! Thanks Charlotte!!! ❤️

  24. A warm and happy good morning to all the MAM (and DKB) clan. Presently 12:40 AM in Victoria, British Columbia, I've awakened after a 4-hour nap, made coffee, perused the post so far, printed the order of service, and am about to sort out a live feed on one or more of the broadcasting networks. Alas, Skynews links, are not made available in this area.

    Many, many thanks, Charlotte for your exemplary blogging on both MAM and DKB. How do you manage your thoughtful, respectful, insightful and detailed commentary at the pace that you've been keeping of late? You are a miracle of love and light.

    So lovely to share the Order of Service ahead of the ceremony this way. So looking forward to the pomp and pageantry the Brits do so brilliantly along with those personal touches brought to the service by Meghan and Harry. One of the commentators yesterday who had seen the Order of Service yesterday (but was sworn to secrecy) gave a little hint: It has soul! she said. Indeed.

    Wishing all of you who share this day with me here a Blessed One.

      I was just filming in Vancouver (actually on location N.E. of downtown & sadly missed out yet again getting over to Victoria:( I was based at The downtown Fairmont & had a fabulous view of both the Water & The Mountains, depending on which window I looked out! I did end up with a free day at the end & was able to drive up the Sea & Sky Way to spend a day at Whistler & relax at the base of Blackcomb at The Chateaux Whistler! :) Whether you live there are just visiting, what a Beautiful part of the World to be watching from & to be today! :) xo

    Thank you for providing the Sky Livestream. It works for me in Germany as well. The television coverage in Germany starts in one hour, so I would miss the atmosphere beforehand.
    And I liked to have a look at the Order of Service.

  36. 🌸 The Order of Service is a beautiful ceremony.
    And, everyone is saying Meghan is being a feminist walking up the aisle by herself. But the heritage of that is that a man who joined that clergy there would walk up that one part by himself then (where Charles is meeting Meghan) a senior clergy would meet the novice and accompany him to the alter to take his vows. When met at the “Charle’s” meeting place it was a symbol that he was first alone but now a member of that body of clergy.

    This is SO exciting!! I'm happy the weather is so beautiful. It really is an extra bonus! Sky News coverage is very good I think. They have their reporters in excellent locations. How exciting that the car with Meghan and her Mum is going to arrive via the Long Walk so all the people there will be able to get a glimpse of Meghan en route!! What I most look forward to is all the guests coming into the Chapel, with HM just moments before Meghan and her Mum, and then the trumpet fanfare playing...! I'm gonna cry and cry, I know!

    I'm so excited for today, although sigh, Prince Harry will now be taken hehe.
    I too found it so romantic that he's going to wear a wedding band, almost bought yet another onslaught of hormonal tears haha. I've forced my poor husband to sit with me tonight and watch the wedding, and he's prepared scones and pastries for supper for us to indulge in! The best treat for this heavily, heavily pregnant lady. I had a stern talking to at the bump and reminded her to stay in until after I've seen the wedding HAHA!!
    Can't wait to see her jewels and dress, and I really wish them a happily ever after ❤️❤️❤️

    I started commenting this morning on the other post - I am so glad, it´s finally here, this day! I have finished the ironing (see last post comments, lol), cleaned everything - so I´m ready to go!!! YAY!!!
    I must admit I personally would have liked more colour with the flowers. I absolutely ADORED the colourful arrangements at CP Mary of Denmark´s wedding, designed by no other than HM The Queen of Denmark herself!!
    Ah well, I will get over it, I guess... ;-)))))

    Duke and Duchess of Sussex - so there we go!!!!

    Harry will wear a ring - HOORAY!!!

    They have a slightly changed vow wording. The last sentence is more modern than the one used before. It will be SO moving. And then "Stand by me" - I well up just thinking of this song - let alone hear it performed!!! What a hymn, what a powerful message for both of them!!

    Ahh, half an hour to go until the coverage is starting here in Germany!!! YAY!!

    THANKS SO MUCH, Charlotte, you´re doing a stellar job each and every time, I feel PRIVILEGED to be able to follow your coverage today!!! Thank you isn´t enough!! Hugs from Germany!!

Welcome to Mad About Meghan! We do so look forward to reading your thoughts. Constructive, fair debate is always encouraged. Hateful, derogatory terms and insults are not welcome here. This space focuses on Harry and Meghan, not any other member of the Royal family. It's not the place to discuss politics either. Thank you for reading, we look forward to your comments :)
