The Duchess of Sussex revealed that how her husband Prince Harry was surprised after knowing her tribute to the 53 nations of the Commonwealth featured on her 15ft wedding veil.
In a clip from the ITV documentary Queen of the World, Meghan told: ‘’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,’’
‘’It was important for me, especially now being a part of the Royal Family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated.’’

Meghan also revealed how she asked to stitch the blue fabric from the outfit she wore on her first date with the Duke of Sussex to be stitched into her wedding gown.
She added: ‘’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, and the work that we’re gonna continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.’’
‘’So, yeah, it was good news all around, I think, so I hope people liked it as much as I liked helping to create it.’’
After hearing the revelation, a female curator of the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace, where the dress is due to go on display, replied: ‘’Oh, that’s about the most romantic thing I’ve heard.’’
