‘They knew’ was Meghan Markle and Harry’s wedding cake, which defied royal convention.
According to the baker, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry “knew what they wanted” and didn’t want “anything traditional” for their wedding cake.
The Queen wields considerable power and influence over her family as the leader of the British monarchy. However, the royal family has made exceptions in the past, particularly when it comes to Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, and their wedding. Among the many customs that were completely broken was the flavor and shape of the wedding cake.
A Coat of Arms is traditionally established for the family of a spouse who marries into the Royal Family.
It is presented to the bride’s father in advance of the wedding.
“A Coat of Arms has been produced for The Duchess of Sussex,” the Palace said on May 25, 2018.
It features a blue background that represents the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California, two gold beams that represent California sunshine, and golden poppies, the state flower of California.
According to Fashion Magazine, the Coat of Arms, which does not even feature Meghan’s parents’ names, was bestowed directly and only to Meghan.
While the bride is often addressed as “Miss” on royal wedding invitations, it didn’t feel suitable in the case of Meghan, who had previously married. Instead, the Palace authorized Meghan to be addressed as “Ms Meghan Markle” on the wedding invitation.
The sentiments of the Queen’s great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, on marrying in May were previously published on this page.
“Marry in May, lament the day” is a superstition rhyme that warns brides against marrying in May because it is considered unfortunate.
The superstition became a tradition, which Meghan Markle defied when she married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018.
Divorcee marriages have been a source of contention for the royal family in the past.
Take, for example, Princess Margaret, the Queen’s late sister, who wanted to marry a divorced man, which sparked outrage and finally ended Princess Margaret’s romance.
The Queen did not attend the civil wedding when Prince Charles remarried Camilla.
The laws were modified for Harry’s wedding to Meghan, and he became the first member of the Royal Family to marry a divorcee in church.
