Two years have passed since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they would be leaving the royal family to pursue their own projects, almost two years after their wedding in May 2018.
Now, some royal fans are saying that the veil she wore on her wedding day could have foreshadowed events to come.
At the time, Clare Waight Keller told The Royal Family Channel: “The veil was a big part of the story for me.” We talked about what we wanted to do in terms of embracing some of the royal connections there, and a lot of the work that she’s probably going to do in the future will probably be related to the Commonwealth.
‘Part of the discussions around the veil was ‘What were we going to do?’ Would it be a lace border, a border, and I said “wouldn’t it be amazing if we took all 53 Commonwealth countries and embroidered the flower and some flora and fauna of each of them and they would walk down the aisle? That trip down the aisle with you?It’s a wonderful welcoming aspect of the whole ceremony.
This was a beautiful way for the bride to embrace her new home and launch into her official duties, which included a tour of Australia, New Zealand and Scotland.
Of course, we all know she stepped away from those duties to move to America with Prince Harry and then-baby Archie (they’ve since welcomed daughter Lilibet).
Some see this as being reflected in the modern design of the veil, symbolizing the changes the Duchess wanted to bring to the monarchy. Clare revealed at the time: “I think with Meghan, she’s so modern and fresh, and I think that’s part of who she wanted to be on her wedding day.”
