The fairytale Royal Wedding took place on May 19, 2018 and arised an exciting success for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. One of the main standouts of the wedding happened to be Markle’s boat neck gown by Givenchy. The designs were very simple, yet extremely elegant.
Many people had a lot to say about the simplicity of the gown. Kensington Palace referenced Clare Kelly, one of the dressers designers in a Tweet saying “The Duchess and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design, epitomizing a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy.”
Markle finished the dress with Queen Mary’s passed-down diamond bandeau tiara. The veil laying at 16 feet had an outline of a flowered lace design along the rims.
Her loosely pulled back hair gave Markle the complete look of elegance. Many people thought it was crazy, for a soon-to-be Duchess wearing such a simple and plain gown. However, others thought it gave Markle the classic “Royal Wedding look”.
“People are making such a big deal about the event, so people were expecting so much more,” junior Ava DeMary said. “When people think royalty it’s like… a big deal.”
The dress gave a sophisticated and poised look to Markle. The material was made out of silk organza, also giving the dress and Markle a fascinating eye walking down the aisle.
“It wasn’t the traditional Princess dress, but because of that it made it so much more enjoyable to watch,” junior Sabrina Krasner said. “The dress was everything.”
