Kate Middleton’s wedding dress included a secret message


It seems forever ago that Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, and that she finally revealed her wedding dress after months of speculation.

The Givenchy gown took an incredible 3,900 hours to make, and featured a veil embroidered with 53 flour and fauna to represent the Commonwealth countries, an idea from Clare Waight Keller which Meghan was immediately taken with.

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time a secret symbol has been embroidered in a royal’s wedding dress.

Kate Middleton chose Alexander McQueen for her wedding day, following advice from this famous face. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton, and featured a symbolic detail you might have missed.

The floral embroidery on her sleeves was a tribute to the United Kingdom, according to HuffPost. The motif included roses, daffodils, thistles, and shamrocks, which are the national emblems of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

They were also embroidered using a 17th-century Irish lace-making technique called Carrickmacross, another nod to the nation.
