Meghan and Harry: By their own admission, their secret wedding never happened

After claiming to have married in secret three days before their official royal union, now Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have changed their story by revealing what really happened.

There was never a secret wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. On March 7, in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she and her husband were united in the strictest privacy three days before their official royal wedding, “a great show for everyone.” A revelation quickly challenged by several members of the Church of England, but also by the couple’s marriage certificate, which states well that they said “yes” on May 19, 2018 in Windsor. A marriage that was finally not a marriage as clarified by a protector-spokesperson of the couple to the Daily Beast.

“The couple exchanged vows a few days before their official wedding on May 19,” he thus clarified, as suggested by Stephen Borton, former chief clerk in the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who pointed out that only the royal marriage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was “recognized by the Church of England and the law.” A misunderstanding simply born once again of the misinterpretation of the words of the Duchess of Sussex, who instead of talking about “exchange of vows” as it was really the case, evoked a marriage. While revealing the content of this small ceremony. “The vows we exchanged – they are framed in our room – were taken in our garden, with the Archbishop of Canterbury and that’s all. It was just the three of us,” she told Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan Markle less concerned about the specifics of the laws

A detail that caused a new round of criticism against Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who simply wanted to share a small moment of intimacy to express their love for each other, and this in the presence of Justin Welby. On Twitter, the English reverend Tiffer Robinson had also spoken out, saying that the ceremony mentioned by the Duchess of Sussex was probably just an unofficial union. “She can consider it her wedding if she wants to. Americans are far less concerned about the specifics of marriage laws than English clergy are,” the pastor had tweeted. However, they will have had the moment of intimacy so desired.
