Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may have gotten married in one of the most public and extravagant ceremonies we have ever seen, but it was their secret nuptials days before that had the most sentimental meaning to the couple. In fact, there is currently a special token from that day hanging in their new Montecito home.
Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all conversation, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special. During the interview, the duchess casually revealed that she and Prince Harry secretly exchanged vows three days before their May 19 ceremony.
According to the Suits alum, the couple was married in their backyard, three days before (presumably dated May 16) their nuptials in front of the whole world. “You know, three days before our wedding, we got married," Markle slyly revealed. “No one knows that. We called the archbishop and we just said, ‘Look ― this thing, this spectacle is for the world. But we want our union for us.’”
Markle continued, “So the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.”
