[Mise à jour du 19 mai à 18h10]. This May 19, 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrate their leather wedding anniversary! A second wedding anniversary under the sign of confinement, for the parents of little Archie Harrison, who celebrated his first year on May 6. After two eventful years, between work from Frogmore Cottage which earned them a debt of £ 2.4million and a move to Canada, the family ultimately settled down in California, Los Angeles since late March 2020. The American actor Tyler Perry opened the doors of his luxurious home to them to experience this period of social distancing in peace, in the city of angels. It is in Beverly Hills that the Sussexes will drink their two years of union, in a very small committee.

In 2018, Henry of Wales, commonly known as Prince Harry, married Meghan Markle in the lavish St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, located west of London. The Duchess of Sussex had joined the altar on the arm of her future father-in-law, Prince Charles, as her father was unable to attend the ceremony. At the end of this beautiful moment, the couple had offered their first official kiss on the steps of the chapel. As is the Anglican tradition, newlyweds do not have the right to kiss within the confines of the religious building. Following Meghan were the children of honor, including little Charlotte of Cambridge who had caused a sensation in a pretty white dress. The reception continued at Frogmore House, and the newlyweds had taken the time to change.
Remember, Meghan had chosen two outfits for her wedding, very different from each other. Tradition and modernity had met in this royal wedding! At Saint George’s Chapel, Meghan Markle arrived wearing a simple Cady silk sheath dress, echoing Carolyn Bessette’s dress, made by Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of Givenchy. With one goal in mind: “Purity and simplicity were the guidelines, a tale of nature through the 53 Commonwealth Flowers “, tells the designer. Indeed, the bride wore a lace veil embroidered with reference to the countries of the intergovernmental organization. Before radically changing the look at Frogmore House! Convertible and sumptuous wedding dress with boat neck, in silk crepe, signed by the British designer Stella McCartney. Harry had followed suit and swapped his official suit for a black velvet tuxedo.
After the religious ceremony, as the newlyweds were to go to the grounds of Frogmore House where the rest of the festivities took place, Meghan Markle created a surprise by wearing an incredible ring from the personal collection of Princess Lady Diana, the much missed mother of Prince Harry. This is a 24 karat gold ring set with an aquamarine stone. This highly symbolic jewel was offered by her husband, Prince Harry, a few months earlier.
There were beautiful people at the ceremony which united Meghan Markle and Prince Harry! We were able to see in particular Amal and George Clooney, Victoria and David Beckham, Serena Williams, great friend of the bride, rubgyman Jonny Wilkinson, host Oprah Winfrey, singer James Blunt and of course Elton john, great friend of Diana Spencer, the very late mother of Henry of Wales. He had also sung to celebrate the union. Meghan Markle would then have asked him to teach the piano to his child. Actors from the Suits series in which Meghan Markle plays the role of Rachel Zane were also on hand! More surprising: there was also Cressida Bonas, the ex of prince Harry and Idris Elba as well as his fiancée Sabrina Dhowre, a couple a priori very friends with the newlyweds. For their two years of marriage, the atmosphere will be quite different … No celebration with great pomp, confinement requires!
