New York City: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry dropped a lot of bombshells during their two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey today, but this revelation is the most shocking one.
In an interview with Oprah on Sunday, the Duchess of Sussex revealed
that she and her now husband, British Royal Prince Harry already had their wedding ceremony in a completely secret way just three days prior to the official ceremony.
She further said that they swapped their vows behind closed doors before the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welsby three days before their official wedding date – May 19, 2018 – at the British Windsor Castle.
“No one knows that. But we called the archbishop, and we just said, ‘Look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world, but we want our union between us,” she said while speaking to Oprah.
She added that on the day of their wedding at Windsor Castle, the couple tried to keep things “fun and light and remind ourselves that this was our day — but I think we were both really aware, even in advance … that this wasn’t our day. This was the day that was planned for the world.”
A year after their wedding, Meghan and Harry welcomed their son, Archie. The pair announced last month that they are expecting their second child this summer, and shared with Oprah that it is a girl.
