Meghan Markle Had A Secret Patch Sewn Into Her Wedding Dress, And Its Meaning Is So Romantic

by Lindsey Weedston

Everyone is freaking out about Meghan Markle’s wedding dress secret. The Duchess of Sussex just revealed that the “something blue” on her wedding day was a piece of a blue dress discreetly sewn into the wedding gown she wore when she married Prince Harry.

The blue dress was the one she wore on their very first date.

She dropped the wedding dress secret during her first interview as an official royal for the Queen of the World documentary, which will air in the US on HBO on October 1. The Royal Collection Trust brought Meghan’s wedding dress to her for the interview, and she revealed something special.

“Somewhere in here, there’s a piece of… did you see it?” she says. “The piece of blue fabric that’s stitched inside? It was my ‘something blue.’ It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.”

Royal Collection exhibitions coordinator Hannah Belcher, who conducts the interview in the film, called it “about the most romantic thing I’ve heard.”

Now we want to know what was new, old, and borrowed.

The iconic wedding dress was designed by the British fashion designer Clare Waight Keller. The intricate handiwork of Meghan’s veil was embroidered with flowers representing each of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth. Meghan worked closely with designers on the dress, adding her own little touches to the design — including the fabric from her first-date dress.
