The Duke & Duchess of Sussex celebrate their first wedding anniversary!

Today is quite a special day, as Harry and Meghan are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Last year, the couple got married at St George’s Chapel, on the grounds of Windsor Castle. As we’ve come to know, Windsor is quite special for the couple: their engagement portraits were taken at Frogmore House (and their evening reception was held there) and now they live at Frogmore Cottage. To celebrate this wonderful day, the couple shared a lovely video on their instagram account with the following statement:

Happy one year anniversary to Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

Today marks the one year anniversary of the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Their Royal Highnesses exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19th, 2018.

The selected song “This Little Light of Mine” was chosen by the couple for their recessional. We hope you enjoy reliving this moment, and seeing some behind the scenes photos from this special day.

A message from The Duke & Duchess: Thank you for all of the love and support from so many of you around the world. Each of you made this day even more meaningful.

The Royal Family attends the wedding of Princess Eugenie & Jack Brooksbank

The Royal Family attends the wedding of Princess Eugenie & Jack Brooksbank

The British Royal Family all went back to Windsor Castle today to attend the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. Princess Eugenie, 9th in line to the British throne, is the daughter of Prince Andrew, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York; and is the younger sister of Princess Beatrice. Jack Brooksbank is the European brand manager for Casamigos, the tequila brand co-founded by Georges Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman. Eugenie and Jack have been together since 2010 and got engaged back in January. Eugenie’s sister and Jack’s brother were respectively Maid of Honor and Best Man.

Harry & Meghan arrived with the rest of the family, and were seated next to The Cambridges and Anne, Princess Royal. Meghan wore a Givenchy coat and dress paired with Manolo Blahnik heels, a Noel Stewart fascinator and a Givenchy clutch. She completed her look with jewelry from Pippa Small. You can find photos from the arrival/departure and the ceremony in the gallery.

The wedding must have been quite special for Meghan & Harry as it probably reminded them of their own, which only happened 5 months ago!

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s wedding outfits to go on display

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s wedding outfits to go on display

The public will have the opportunity to see Meghan’s dress and a replica of Harry’s uniform at Windsor Castle and at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh in 2018 & 2019.

From 26 October 2018 to 6 January 2019, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will form part of your visit to Windsor Castle. This special exhibition will feature the wedding outfits worn by the couple at their wedding in May 2018.

The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress was created by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. The Duchess chose Ms Waight Keller for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, and for the impeccable tailoring of her creations. The Duchess and Ms Waight Keller worked closely together on the design.

The Duke of Sussex’s wedding outfit was the frockcoat uniform of the Household Cavalry (the ‘Blues and Royals’), made by tailors at Dege & Skinner on Savile Row. As the uniform specially commissioned for the occasion is required for use by His Royal Highness, an identical uniform made for The Duke by Dege & Skinner a few years earlier will be displayed.

The dress is made from an exclusive double-bonded silk cady, developed by Ms Waight Keller following extensive research in fabric mills throughout Europe. True to the heritage of the House of Givenchy, the graceful lines of the dress were achieved using six meticulously placed seams. These extend towards the back of the dress, where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. One of the main features of the dress is the boat neckline bodice.

The five-metre-long veil is made from silk tulle and embroidered with the flora of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, a reference to an important part of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official work following His Royal Highness’s appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

The Duchess added two of her favourite flowers to the embroidered decoration: Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the State flower of The Duchess’s place of birth, California. Embroidered ears of wheat, symbolising love and charity, are symmetrically placed at the front of the veil, which is edged with embroidered organza flowers.

The Duchess of Sussex’s Hairstylist Spills All the Details on Her Royal Wedding ‘Messy Bun’

He was inspired by Audrey Hepburn in the 1960s.

HARPER’S BAZAAR – Celebrity hairstylist Serge Normant was the man Meghan Markle called on to style her hair for the royal wedding (he often works with Sarah Jessica Parker and Julia Roberts). “I am still pinching myself this morning. It’s just one of those moments you dream of,” Normant told reporters at Kensington Palace yesterday after the wedding, according to the DailyMail. “I am very excited about it.”

Normant spilled all the details on creating her messy bun, the inspirations, and exactly how long it took to style her hair: “We had to blow dry [her hair] from wet, I would say 45 minutes to an hour,” he dished. “Then they did the make-up and then you fiddle around with it a little bit. But it’s not that long. I always tend to try and go as fast as I can at these events. Nobody wants to sit around.”

While some Internet commenters thought her hair—specifically her face-framing layers—looked too messy (a common and tiresome critique of Markle’s favorite style), Normant embraced her signature look. “It’s a messy bun, we call it. Messy in a controlled way,” he said. Normant was focused on “making sure it doesn’t become a whole mess after a few hours” without making the hair look shellacked. “I don’t overload the hair with products in general and certainly not on this day,” he says.
