It is fair to say that Meghan is one lucky woman as she got married to two different men in two different dresses in the same year! In real life, she married Prince Harry and on TV she married her on-screen husband Mike Ross from Suits. Her marriage to Prince Harry took place on May 19, 2018, at the fairy-tale location of Windsor Castle. On the morning of her wedding, she received the title of Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex and she wore a custom hand-made classic Givenchy Wedding gown, which reportedly cost $135,000.
Fun Fact: Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller designed Markle’s gown. Waight Keller is the first female art director for Givenchy which is very “fitting” for modern feminist Markle.
