On May 19, one of the most anticipated royal weddings was convened at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, and the bride, Meghan Markle, glided down the aisle in a breathtaking Givenchy boatneck haute couture wedding dress, to marry Prince Harry.

A day after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex became man and wife, Kensington Palace released the sketch of the dreamy wedding gown designed by British-born, Clare Waight Keller, who became the French fashion house’s first female artistic director last year. According to the Palace’s Instagram post, Clare ”worked closely” with Meghan on the design, ”which epitomises a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy.”

The Royal Palace also shared a sketch of the Duchess’ ethereal five-meter silk veil, ”representing the distinctive flora of all 53 Commonwealth countries united in one spectacular floral composition.”

Making her debut after the wedding in a risque Stella McCartney number, Markle kept things simple this time around too, without any lace or embellishments. However, her second wedding dress, a lily-white gown in silk crepe, was more revealing than the first, featuring a halter-neck and open back. The designer also shared a sketch exclusively with Women Wear Daily of Markle’s dress.
