Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (03)

Hours after marrying Prince Harry in a Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy dress, Meghan Markle revealed a second wedding dress for the evening reception at Frogmore House. The high neck gown, made of silk crepe was designed by Stella McCartney. Markle’s satin shoes are from Aquazarra. She is wearing Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring to her wedding reception. Unlike her classic and timeless ceremony gown, her second look conjured sophisticated Hollywood glamour. Prince Harry at Markle’s side was dressed in an elegant tuxedo. The newly titled Duke and Duchess of Sussex departed Windsor Castle in a 1968 silver blue Jaguar - presumably to party the night away. See also MORE BLOGS about the Royal Wedding. Be Inspired ......
