The devil is definitely on the details. The small romantic details you might have missed from the British royal weddings are here to make us celebrate love.
Whether you were an avid watcher of one of the royal weddings or perhaps you were at an event and eventually having a glimpse at the TV to see how Meghan or Kate was so stunning.
Ten years after the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot, we decided to revisit the weddings from both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Kate & William
Kate Middleton wore a unique earring during her wedding. A present from her family, designed by Robinson Pelham. The stunning — yet discreet — gift featured diamond acorns and oak trees inspired by those at the family’s Berkshire home.
Ring and Royal Traditions
Prince William, by personal preferences, doesn’t wear a wedding band, but Katherine got her from a piece of Welsh Clogau gold belonging to the Queen. Catherine’s simple style’s golden ring is in line with a long-lasting tradition among British royal weddings.
Traditions are Traditions
Duchess Kate and Prince William indeed honored many royal traditions during their special day. Kate borrowed the Queen Elizabeth’s Cartier Halo tiara, and she had a discreet blue ribbon sewn into her dress, just like Princess Diana had done on her wedding.
The Bride’s Bouquet Too
The flower composition on the bride’s bouquet stayed true to another royal tradition. Myrtle taken from a bush planted by Queen Victoria at Osborne House was included, as were flowers grown from Queen Elizabeth’s 1947 bridal bouquet, alongside lily of the valley and hyacinth.
Departure in Royal Style
Decorated with balloons by their friends and a sign saying “JU5T WED”, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their way from the afternoon reception at the Buckingham Palace to Clarence House in a stylish convertible.
The Aston Martin has been a gift from the Queen and Prince Philip to their eldest son, Prince Charles, on his 21st birthday.
Meghan & Harry
Meghan’s stunning 16-foot veil was one of the stars at the ceremony. Carried by Seven-year-old twins John and Brian Mulroney, sons of Meghan’s close friend Jessica Mulroney, they took care of it and helped the Duchess to make her way down the aisle.
We all died when Prince Harry glanced with his passionate eyes towards his beloved Meghan and greeted her at the end of the aisle with the perfect compliment—”You look amazing.” But people say he said something more… Some suggests that the prince mouthed, “I’m crazy about you.”
The Other Ring
Some more details came to the attention of the Internet, like the Duchess of Sussex’s engagement ring. After the reception, the couple climbed onto a convertible Jaguar and waved — and there, you can see the oversize aquamarine stone on her ring. The sparkler belonged to Princess Diana.
The Celebs Catwalk
Oprah and the Clooneys are Meghan’s friend and fellow actress, Janina Gavankar — they were all present at the ceremony. But the most remarkable moment was Gavankar’s vintage dress. An orange gown, sleek cape, and a dramatic black hat are all vintage pieces from the 30s and 40s, respectively.
The Duchess’s Givenchy dress wasn’t the only surprise. Her mother, Doria Ragland, wore a pale lime green dress and coat by Oscar de la Renta that fitted her perfectly well. Also, the floral design goes along with the flowers lining Meghan’s veil.
