The 36-year-old Duchess’ silk crepe dress was designed by Stella McCartney. Her shoes were silk stain, made by Aquazurra, while her hair was styled by George Northwood. Her first dress, the one she got married in, was also silk, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. However, there is no denying that the Princess went all-out modern and chic for her second reception.

The Kensington Palace shared a video, showing the couple appearing all dressed for their second reception.

The couple headed to their new reception in a vintage  Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero car. The vehicle dates back to 1968, though it has now been converted into an electric one. The Duke and the Duchess headed to their car. Prince Harry, being the gentleman that he is, opened the car door for his missus and seated her before going around and seating himself. The couple then drove off in style, all smiles, to continue their wedding celebrations.

Meghan’s first dress was absolutely regal, with a 5-meter long train. Her veil was held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau, which was lent to her by the Queen. The stunning piece of jewelry was made in 1932 in England, with the entre brooch dating back to 1893.

Markle’s veil carried a hidden message; she wanted to have all the 53 Commonwealth countries with her on her big day, hence Ms. Waight Keller designed a special veil for her. According to Kensington Palace, the veil was embroidered with the flowers of each Commonwealth country united in one unique floral composition.

The new Duchess also took the opportunity to thank the Queen for the opportunity to work alongside Prince Harry during his appointment as the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. The Royal Family’s website states that the veil, which was five meters long, was made from ‘silk tulle with a trim of hand embroidered flowers in silk thread and organza’.
