And the bride wore Givenchy. On Saturday, Meghan Markle stepped out of her car in front of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle to marry Prince Harry in an exquisite white gown.

Meghan wore a dress created by British designer Clare Waight Kelle, Kensington Palace said. And it was entirely a surprise. The long-sleeved dress with a sweeping train had been eagerly anticipated by royal fans around the world for months. But in all the rumours that had swirled around the dress, from Ralph & Russo to Stella McCartney, Keller’s name had never come up.

Viewers got a sneak peek at Meghan’s wedding day look as she rode to the chapel alongside her mom, Doria Ragland. Flanked by page boys and bridesmaids, Meghan walked down the aisle of the 15th Century chapel.

Meghan’s wedding dress was simple and elegant. Pure and sculptural, in double-bonded silk cady with a wide boatneck and three-quarter sleeves, it hugged Meghan’s slender waist. Her five metre long veil assembled from silk tulle featured flora designed to represent the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.

Meghan dazzled in the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau tiara, which she has loaned from The Queen. This bejewelled headpiece is rarely seen in public. Meghan’s hair was styled by Serge Normant, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin. The look was paired back but elegant.

Meanwhile, the groom was dressed in the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals, according to Kensington Palace.

Meghan’s bouquet was designed by florist Philippa Craddock and features flowers that Harry handpicked On Friday from his private garden at Kensington Palace. They were added to Forget-Me-Nots (chosen because they were Diana, Princess of Wales’s favourite flower) as well as sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle. The latter is a royal tradition in bridal bouquets.

Meghan’s shoes are by the luxury Florentine brand Aquazzura. Founded by Edgardo Osorio, a Central Saint Martins graduate, in 2011, the brand’s most popular designs (called Wild Thing and Sexy Thing) are frequently seen on famous feet - Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Kidman are all fans.
