#RoyalWedding: Your Comprehensive Guide To Everything Meghan Markle Wore For Her Big Day

As the Royal Wedding drew closer the more the speculation over her dress for the big day grew. Finally, the

As the Royal Wedding drew closer the more the speculation over her dress for the big day grew.

Finally, the day is here and we’re knocked off our feet by how amazing she looks! Meghan Markle may not have worn a dress by any of the designers we thought we would wear but she certainly made a good decision by going with Givenchy.

But what do we really know about Meghan’s dress, veil and tiara for the Royal Wedding?

1. Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy made the dress

Meghan’s dress is designed by Clare who is a highly revered British designer. Clare became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy after serving as creative head at Pringle of Scotland and Chloé.

Clare was chosen to make Meghan’s wedding dress after the two met earlier this year.

2. Meghan’s wedding dress is made of one of a kind fabric

After Clare and Meghan had done an in-depth research across European fabric mills they settled on an exclusive double bonded silk cady which was developed specifically for the dress.

The fabric was chosen because it would give the “perfect for the round sculptural look”.

3. Meghan’s veil has all 53 countries of the Commonwealth represented

 

Meghan wanted to have all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her during the ceremony and her veil bears testimony to this. The veil is a floral composition of one distinctive flora which represents each Commonwealth country where it is mostly found.

 

Meghan also chose Wintersweet which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace and the California Poppy to represent her place of birth in California. Crops of wheat are also embroidered and blend into the flora to symbolise love and charity.

4. It’s a really, really long veil

The veil is five meters long and is made from silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.

The workers spent hundreds of hours carefully sewing and washing their hands every thirty minutes to keep the tulle and threads clean. Phew!

5. The tiara was given to her by the Queen

Meghan’s veil is held in place by a tiara which was lent to her by the Queen. It;’s very much royal tradition as we see with Princess Diana’s wedding and Kate Middleton.

The tiara is Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893. The tiara was given by Queen Mary to The Queen in 1953.

6. Meghan’s wedding ring is a gift from the Queen

Meghan added another ring alongside her three-stone diamond engagement ring, a wedding band made of Welsh gold, which Queen Elizabeth gave the bride-to-be as a gift.

7. Meghan kept it simple with minimal jewellery

While it may be her big day, Meghan Markle decided to keep it simple with wearing a tiara lent to her by the Queen, diamond stud earrings and a stunning bracelet. No necklace here as Meghan kept the boatneck of her wedding gown clean and modern.

Her earrings and bracelet are made by Cartier.

8. You might have missed catching a glimpse of them but her shoes are made by Givenchy

The new Duchess nailed the look in satin bridal heels that perfectly matched her wedding gown. The wedding shoes are based on a Givenchy refined pointed couture design made of a silk duchess satin.

9. Prince Harry added a personal touch to Meghan’s bouquet

Prince Harry handpicked flowers a day before the wedding from the private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock.

The bouquet also includes Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Harry’s mother, favourite flower to honour her memory. Other flowers include scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle which are all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon.

10. Meghan’s make-up was flawlessly done by her long-time friend

Meghan enlisted the help of makeup artist Daniel Martin and long-time friend for her makeup. She went for a slightly more done-up version of her signature makeup look with a warm blush accenting her cheeks and her eyes dusted with a subtle smoky shadow. A soft pink lip and lashes for days completed her look.

Meghan’s nails were glossed with a pale nude-pink polish, and her hair for the day was worn in a tousled updo created by hairstylist Serge Normant.

7 Memorable Black Magic Moments At The #RoyalWedding

That! = Things Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did at their wedding today! The whole world literally came to a

That! = Things Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did at their wedding today!

The whole world literally came to a standstill to witness the union between the black American actress and the British Prince. Whether she is truly the first person of colour in the British royal family is still up for debate, but as far as most of the world knows, it really is the first time we’re witnessing a marriage between a black person and a member of the royal family.

And the celebration came with a healthy splash of melanin magic that we won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Take a look at 7 of those memorable moments below.

1. Oprah Winfrey’s Arrival

Queen Oprah was on time, and boy did she look gorgeous! The media mogul and richest black woman in the world was picture perfect in a pink Stella McCartney number paired with a hat and sunnies. A black queen!

 

2. Serena Williams’s Cascading Braids

Does it get any blacker than Serena rocking an almost-floor-length braids hairstyle to the royal wedding? Serena’s hairstyle is undoubtedly one of the highest points of the ceremony filled with a thousand and one high points.

 

3. The Mother Of The Bride

Locs, nose ring, and that oh-so-good chocolate skin! Ms Doria Ragland was unapologetically black and breathtakingly beautiful as she gave out her daughter in marriage. A proud mother if we ever saw one!

4. Karen Gibson And The Kingdom Choir

 

A black choir at the royal wedding?! Who would have thought! Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir’s rendition of the gospel version of American R&B classic, “Stand By Me” will be talked about for a very long time, but so would the afros, the twist-outs, the melanin and sheer blackness of all of it!

5. The Afro-Haired Cellist

19-year-old Sheku Kanneh-Mason was a depiction of Black Boy Joy at the royal wedding. His awe-inspiring delivery of ‘Ave Maria’ as the newlyweds signed the registry tells us everything we need to know about why Meghan picked up the phone and called him to specially request that he play at their wedding.

6. Bishop Michael Curry And His Blackitty Black Sermon

We were over here in our houses screaming, “Ride on, Pastor” to Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon because, why not?

He quoted Martin Luther King, he talked slavery and justice, he preached love and made the whole of social media believers – for as long as his sermon lasted.

7. Meghan Herself!

I mean, I don’t know about y’all but I can’t get over the fact that there’s finally a black woman in Buckingham Palace. Like what?! A whole black Duchess! This is definitely one for the books! And please don’t be a spoilsport by bringing up that, “she’s only half black” thing. We know, we know!

Chris Brown’s new neck tattoo</dd> </dl> </div>

Let the games begin! Chris Brown</strong> has taken the ‘bold step’ towards what we would like to call a forthcoming epic ‘war of words’ between himself and recent nemesis Drake</strong> by releasing a diss song for him.</p>

The Pop/R&amp;B singer has responded on record to the infamous club brawl with Drake</a></span> which took place in June. Brown’s verse is featured on a remix of Chief Keef’s ‘I Don’t Like</em>‘ song featuring Kanye West, Jadakiss, Pusha T and Big Sean and The Game.</p>

Breezy raps;</p>

They throwing’ bottles, I’m throwing’ models…. I be singing’, he be singing’, so it’s on sight….. Them eyebrows? Man, them shits is yikes / OVO, you overdose,</em>screaming’ Y.O.L.O. though, I live twice!</em>‘</p>

Drake is yet to respond to the song.</p>

Meanwhile Chris Brown continues to ink his body, filling every space that’s left with tattoos. The 23-year-old just got a huge neck tattoo done by Peter Koskela aka PeterTattooist. The tattoo is described as an ‘Indian chief transforming into a wolf’.</p>

Lamboginny at Kaffy’s wedding, May 2012</dd> </dl> </div>

Yinka Lawanson, popularly known as Lamboginny of the ‘Say No To Crime’ Initiative, was involved in a car crash in the early hours of Saturday, June 30, 2012.</p>

The musician was returning from the Nigezie Relaunch Party held at Club Rumors on Friday, June 29, 2012.</p>

Speaking to NET about the accident, Lamboginny said he left the first party and was on his way to another event at Chevron Estate. ‘I took the Eko Bridge, though late, I wasn’t speeding. There was this car that was driving side by side with me for a while. I just realised suddenly that the car swerved his hand towards me unexpectedly. I tried dodging but unfortunately for me, the car hit the culvert and went to the other side of the road. My car went left and right four times, before it eventually stopped…I thought I was already dead, because I didn’t believe what happened. I was bleeding profusely from the nose, as the clothes were dripping with blood</em>’.</p>

He says a good samaritan helped him out as the person who caused the accident left the scene. ‘I was lucky enough to be saved by a young man named Uche. Uche took me to the General Hospital Lagos Island where treatment was administered to me. The doctor said there was no need to keep me in the hospital since drugs had been given to me. It was later that I realised that my car was still left on the Eko Bridge, I told Uche to accompany my friends to pick up the Toyota Camry car</em>’.</p>

The Honorary Nigerian Prison Officer thanked God for sparing his life ‘I really appreciate God for this, because sincerely, with the way I was bleeding after the accident, I don’t know what would have happened’.</p>

Lamboginny constantly works with youths and helps with the re-integration of freed inmates into society.</p> ” data-medium-file=”” data-large-file=”” class=”size-full wp-image-49501 aligncenter” src=”https://i2.wp.com/234star.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/cruz.png?resize=443%2C219&ssl=1″ alt=”” width=”443″ height=”219″ data-recalc-dims=”1″ />
