Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding Dress Designers Speak Out On Her Gowns

(ABC NEWS)- The two designers of Meghan Markle’s wedding dresses are finally speaking out after the bride walked down the aisle to wed Prince Harry Saturday inside St. George’s Chapel in front of hundreds of relatives and guests.

Markle, now known as the Duchess of Sussex, first wore a wedding gown, made out of triple silk organza, featuring an open bateau neckline with three-quarter-length sleeves.

Her look, which was seen by millions watching around the world, was completed by her “something borrowed” — Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, which Queen Elizabeth loaned to Markle, complete with a flower-outlined veil that measured at 16 feet long.


Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director to head the house of Givenchy, said in comments to the press just what the groom thought of his bride’s look.

“He came straight up to me and he said, ‘Oh my God, thank you! She looks absolutely stunning,'” Waight Keller, 47, recalled. “Well, I think everybody saw on television — he was absolutely in awe, I think. She looked just incredible and it showed.

“So I think for the both of them, they were just radiant at that time,” she added.

The British designer called the royal wedding a “dream day” in a post on Instagram.

Keller, who accompanied Markle on her wedding day, also shared just what her role entailed.


For the wedding receptions, Markle stepped out in another wedding gown — this time designed by British designer Stella McCartney.
