The Queen was ‘surprised’ that divorcee Meghan wore a white wedding dress


MEGHAN Markle stunned onlookers when she arrived at St George’s Chapel in a stunning white gown by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy on May 19 2018.

But her wedding dress came as something of a shock to the late Queen who was ‘surprised’ she wore a pure white gown, a new bombshell book has revealed.

In her new book The New Royals, royal expert Katie Nicholl says that the late monarch had thought that, as a divorcee, Meghan might have opted for another colour.

In an extract shared with The Mail on Sunday, Nicholl writes: “The wedding day was a great success, although the Queen had reservations about the pure white of Meghan’s Givenchy dress, designed by Clare Waight Keller.”

Traditionally a white wedding dress is symbolic of a woman’s “purity” on her wedding day, and represents the bride’s virginity.

With Meghan having previously been married, Her Majesty may have expected her to opt for an off-white gown as Camilla had done when she married Charles.

Quoting a source, Nicholl adds: “The Queen was surprised that Meghan wore pure white on her wedding day.

“Perhaps it’s a generational thing, but she believes if you’ve been married before, you wear off-white on your wedding day, which is what the Duchess of Cornwall did.”
