The Queen ‘expressed surprise’ that Meghan Markle ‘wore such a white wedding dress’ as she’d been married before, reports claim
However, according to reports, the Queen is said to have expressed surprise that Meghan wore "such a white dress".
The breathtaking bright white gown featured a bateau neckline and three-quarter length sleeves and Meghan paired the dress with a five-metre long veil made from silk tulle.
The veil also featured hand-embroidered flowers – representing the flora of each of the 53 Commonwealth countries.
According to the Daily Mail, the Queen is said to have "expressed surprise that Meghan, a divorcee, wore quite such a white dress for her wedding."
Despite the claims, Meghan, 37, is likely to have given Her Maj a sneak-peek of the dress a few days before the wedding for approval.
Since becoming a member of the royal family earlier this year, Meghan has had to familiarise herself with several royal traditions.
However, it seems the Queen may have relaxed some of these customs – especially for Meghan and Harry's wedding
Despite Meghan being divorced, the pair were allowed to marry in a church.
In fact, Prince Harry became the first member of the royal family to marry a divorcee in church.
Meghan was also referred to as "Ms" on the wedding invitations instead of "Miss".
Added to that, the wedding was allowed to take place in May – which is believed to be unlucky.
Queen Victoria (aka the Queen's great-great-grandmother) believed it was unlucky for a couple to marry in May.
The superstition, "marry in May, and rue the day" was upheld until this year, when Meghan and Harry tied the knot on May 19.
Rules were also bent during the speeches.
During royal weddings, it's tradition for the best man and host to deliver the speeches.
However, Meghan was allowed to give her own speech in which she's said to have thanked her mother Doria and her in-laws for their support.
