Let's close our eyes and go back to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's gorgeous royal wedding in May. . . well, go back to watching it on TV. Thanks to months of planning from the Royal Collection Trust, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding outfits are ready for visitors! A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex is an exhibition now open in the Grand Reception Room at Windsor Castle where visitors will be able to see Meghan and Harry's gorgeous royal wedding outfits in all their original glory until Jan. 6, 2019. An audio recording in which Meghan and Harry discuss special aspects of their wedding looks, including Meghan's tiara will accompany the exhibit.
While we previously knew Meghan wore Queen Mary's diamond tiara, loaned to her by Queen Elizabeth, we're now finding out about the story behind how she chose that specific tiara, and seriously, it's adorable. "When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to chose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara," Meghan says in the recorded interview with Prince Harry, according to Harper's Bazaar. "Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with her Majesty the Queen to select one of the options that were there which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine."
"That was the one that I think as we tried them on stood out. It was just perfect because it was so clean and simple — and also to that point, an extension of what Clare and I had been trying to do with the dress which was have something that could be so incredibly timeless but still feel modern," she added about her Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy dress.
The best part is, Harry chimed in during the audio recording about how he wasn't really supposed to be there when Meghan chose the diamond tiara, but he's so glad he was! "Funnily enough, it was the one that suited the best, the one that looked the best on you without question," Prince Harry gushed. "I shouldn't have really been there — but an incredible loan by my grandmother. Very sweet."
Read on to see Meghan and Harry's wedding outfits on display in the new exhibition, and more photos of her gorgeous tiara from her wedding day.
