Popular American actress Meghan Markle took nuptial vows with Prince Harry at St Georgeâ€™s Chapel on Saturday. The Remember Me actressâ€™ white wedding gown which was designed by well-known British designer Clare Waight Keller had a selection of flora, including an Indian Lotus in her veil.
The veil of the boat-necked wedding gown represented the distinctive flora of a Commonwealth country. ''The veil of Meghanâ€™sÂ boat-necked, sculpted white dressgown represented the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral compositionâ€™â€™, Kensington Palace said in a statement.
The statement also said that Meghan Markle had expressed the wish to have all the 53 countries of Commonwealth with her during the ceremony.
Indiaâ€™s Lotus, Bangladeshâ€™s White Water Lily and Pakistanâ€™s Jasmine were part of Â the Suits actressâ€™ five-metres long silk tulle veil. The Duchess of Sussex wore earrings and bracelet made by Cartier.
The veil is held in place by Queen Maryâ€™s diamond bandeau tiara, which was lent to Meghan Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating back to 1893.
