Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to give interview in a documentary about The Queen

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to give interview in a documentary about The Queen

ITV News has announced that Meghan will be featured in a new documentary about Queen Elizabeth II, ‘Queen of The World’ in September.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will feature in a new documentary about the Queen’s role on the world stage.

The newlyweds will appear alongside other members of the Royal Family as they build on the Queen’s connections with the countries of the Commonwealth.

Harry and Meghan – now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – will embark on their first Commonwealth tour in October when they visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

The Duchess speaks in the ITV documentary, Queen of the World, about her wedding dress and her early interactions with the Commonwealth, which means so much to her grandmother-in-law.

Meghan had the national flowers of all the 53 members of the Commonwealth embroidered into her long veil in May when she married Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

It was more than 70 years after the Queen had the symbols of the then eight Commonwealth countries sewn into her wedding gown.

The two-part programme was also given behind the scenes access to film moments with Harry’s brother, Prince William as well as Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

Earlier this year, the Queen welcomed the leaders of the Commonwealth countries to a summit in London in what was, in all likelihood, the last time she will act as their host.

She has overseen the growth of the Commonwealth which grew from the fall of the British Empire after the Second World War.

The Prince of Wales has now been confirmed as the organisation’s next Head, when he becomes King.

The Queen has travelled more widely and met more world leaders than any other Monarch in British history.

In fact, by the time of her last overseas visit to Malta in 2015, she had flown the equivalent of 42 times around the globe, taking in 120 different countries.

It means her impact on Britain’s standing on the world stage has been a significant one over her 66 year reign.

But after giving up international travel, the Queen now hopes her grandchildren, including the newest royal – the Duchess of Sussex, will carry on her work in and with the Commonwealth.

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend a gala performance of ‘Hamilton’

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend a gala performance of ‘Hamilton’

Tonight, Harry and Meghan attended a charity gala performance of the hit musical ‘Hamilton’ at the Victoria Palace Theatre. The performance was in support of Harry’s charity Sentebale, which he co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. The funds raised will go to support the mental health and well-being of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho & Botswana. Prior to the gala, they met the musical’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda as well as representatives from Sentebale.

Meghan decided to go with a Judith And Charles tuxedo dress, Paul Andrew heels and Shaun Leane earrings. The dress is rather short, but it looks just fine on Meghan :).


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.
