The meaning behind Duchess Meghan wedding dress. It’s revealed that the Duchess of Sussex, Duchess Meghan wanted her wedding dress to “represent” change, according to the woman who designed the dress Clare Waight Keller who is the Artistic Director at French fashion house, Givenchy.

37-year-old Meghan who married Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle back in May 2018, strolled down the aisle wearing a custom-made Givenchy gown, which featured a five-metre-long silk veil that included intricate floral detail representing all 53 countries of the Commonwealth.

The chic bridal gown that was designed by 44-year old fashion designer, Clare Waight Keller has opened up about her wonderful creation to reveal that the Duchess of Sussex wanted to carve out a new idea of how a royal family should dress.

Chatting to Grazia UK, Clare said: “We talked about the ceremony, the implications of her coming into the family and what her role was going to be in the future, and what she wanted to represent, what emotions she wanted to portray, how she wanted to carve out a new idea of a way to dress for a royal, and also the magnitude of it.”

Meghan also played an intricate part in the design of her dress and worked closely with Clare to ensure that even the smallest detail was catered for in the design of her dress for her big day.

She went on to explain: “Meghan was so excited about the whole thing. It’s all those little things when you’re working with such purity, everything matters – the bateau neck and where it cut on her bone, the hem at the front was 2cm shorter so you could see the point of her shoe, so she looked like she was floating.”

The British designer also went on to reveal that she had to keep all details about her designs confidential when speaking to haute-couture designer Philippe Venet – the late Hubert de Givenchy’s long-time partner.

She added: “It was like a doctor’s law, in that you don’t talk about your patients, so I just stuck to that principle.
“Because it felt so small and intimate up until that point. No one else was involved.”

“it really was just the two of us for so long, I simply didn’t grasp the scale of it. Then on the day, driving through streets and streets lined with people waving, that overwhelming realisation that actually, this is going to be enormous…”

The royal wedding dress was viewed by over a billion people worldwide and Clare insists that the Duchess of Sussex and herself have an unbreakable bond.

Clare finished by saying : “I think the magic of that being so intimate and so personal for so long felt incredibly special because it evolved from a designer and client relationship very quickly into a friendship, in that we’ve got such a comfort level with one another and shared so many special moments.
