Meghan Markle Joins These Celebrity Brides Who Wore Givenchy Gowns

The Duchess of Sussex is in good company

On May 19th, Meghan Markle surprised everyone when she stepped onto the steps of Windsor Castle wearing a wedding dress designed by French fashion house Givenchy.

It was widely assumed that Meghan would pick a British designer to create her wedding gown with Ralph & Russo and Erdem clear favourites. 

However, the Duchess of Sussex honoured her new title and homeland in more ways than one: Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller is originally from Britain and Meghan had a flower from all 53 countries of the Commonwealth handsewn onto her five-metre-long veil
