On behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a representative has released a statement to clarify all the ‘secret wedding’ comments from their interview with Oprah, when Meghan had mentioned that she secretly married Harry in a ceremony with the Archbishop of Canterbury in their ‘backyard’…
Basically, Meghan revealed that this ceremony took place 3 days before the actual wedding back in 2018, explaining, ‘No one knows that. The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury’.
The representative spoke out days after the interview, confirming that their legal wedding was on the 19th of May… However, the new statement now reads, ‘The couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.’
Stephen Borton, who served as chief clerk at the Faculty Office, also previously added that Meghan is ‘misinformed’ about this alleged ‘secret ceremony’, sharing, ‘They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury’.
To be frank, ‘The Special Licence I helped draw up enabled them to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and what happened there on 19 May 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognised by the Church of England and the law.’
So, there you have it! The two just exchanged some vows 3 days before the official wedding, which remains to be the official wedding we all saw on our screens nearly 3 years ago.
