The Royal Foundation Meghan as Patron
Since : May 2018
Following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017, Meghan has become involved in the work of the Foundation, and became its fourth patron following her marriage, on 19 May 2018. The Royal Foundation programmes currently revolve around four main themes of work; mental health, wildlife and conservation, young people and the armed forces community.
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013, Prince Harry saw first-hand how the power of sport can help physically, psychologically and socially those suffering from injuries and illness. He was inspired by his visit and the Invictus Games was born. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.

The wedding outfits of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go on display at Windsor Castle in 2018 and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh in 2019 in a special Royal Collection Trust exhibition “A #RoyalWedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex”.
The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress was created by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. The Duchess chose Ms Waight Keller for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, and for the impeccable tailoring of her creations. The Duchess and Ms Waight Keller worked closely together on the design.
The dress is made from an exclusive double-bonded silk cady, developed by Ms Waight Keller following extensive research in fabric mills throughout Europe. True to the heritage of the House of Givenchy, the graceful lines of the dress were achieved using six meticulously placed seams. These extend towards the back of the dress, where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. One of the main features of the dress is the boat neckline bodice.
The five-metre-long veil is made from silk tulle and embroidered with the flora of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, a reference to an important part of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official work following His Royal Highness’s appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.
The Duchess added two of her favourite flowers to the embroidered decoration: Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which grows in the grounds of Kensington Palace in front of Nottingham Cottage, and the California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the State flower of The Duchess’s place of birth, California. Embroidered ears of wheat, symbolising love and charity, are symmetrically placed at the front of the veil, which is edged with embroidered organza flowers.
Today marks a every special day. It’s not only Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’ birthday, but also the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks.
First off all: happy happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex on her 37th birthday today. She spent her special day by attending the ceremony for one of Harry’s oldest family friends, Charlie van Straubenzee, 30, who married his 27-year-old girlfriend, Daisy Jenks, in Surrey on Saturday afternoon.
For the occasion, Meghan opted for a color-block, pleated shirtdress from Club Monaco that featured an olive, pink and white skirt. It retails for $328. She accessorized with a hat by her go-to milliner, Philip Treacy, her trusty Aquazzura pumps with bows on the strap, a sweet, knotted belt and a clutch by Kayu. While Harry tended to his usher duties, the birthday girl was all smiles as she chatted with several women in attendance.
Meghan and Harry, the Duchess and Duke of Sussex, have finally sent out their ‘Thank You’ notes to thank everybody who sent the couple a congratulatory letter or card in honor of their big day after being married for almost two months now. The letters are addresses from Kensington Palace.
The gorgeous notes come cased in an envelope containing Kensington Palace’s crest, and feature the romantic black-and-white portrait of the couple taken just minutes before their wedding day by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski. The photographer also took the couple’s dreamy engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year. The cards contain the words by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kind cards and letters they have received on the occasion of their Wedding and are so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did,” the message read.
“It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by The Royal Highness who send you their very best wishes.”
Kensington Palace has released Meghan and Harry’s official wedding portraits. These photographs were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Windsor Castle following the carriage procession and in the Green Drawing Room with their Bridesmaids and Page Boys.
Our new married couple have left Windsor Castle in an open-top Jaguar E-Type for their evening wedding reception hosted by The Prince of Wales at Frogmore House. Meghan was spotted in a new white gown designed by Stella McCartney and shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin. She was also wearing a large aquamarine ring on her right hand, which belong to Princess Diana and must be a wedding gift from Harry.
And they’re married! Congratulations to our lovely couple, i wish them all the best for the future!
The celebrations began earlier this morning with more than 2600 guests and amongs them a lot of celebrities were seen such as the cast of Suits, Priyanka Chopra, David & Victoria Beckham, Tom Hardy… After the ceremony, Meghan & Harry were seen kissing on the steps of the St Georges Chapel. Then they left in an Ascot Landau riding through the streets of Windsor and waving to the crowd. More than thousands of people were waiting to see them and share their joy with the couple. Later in the day, Sir Elton John has performed at the Lunchtime Reception. The Reception which was hosted by Her Majesty The Queen took place at St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle.
Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.
Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.
The veil is five meters long and made from silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.
The veil is held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893.
The wedding shoes are based on a Givenchy refined pointed couture design made of a silk duchess satin.
Prince Harry handpicked several flowers yesterday from their private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock.
The Bride’s bouquet is a petite design, pulled together in a gentle, ethereal, relaxed style with delicate blooms also including scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle, all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon.
Ms. Markle’s hair was styled by Serge Normant, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.
Meghan has been seen yesterday arriving with her mum, Doria, at the Cliveden House Hotel one day before her big day. To follow the tradition, she spent the night seperately from Harry. She was wearing a blue navy Roland Mouret dress & said that she was feeling “wonderful” as we can all guess by her big smile. Discover the HQ pics on the gallery.

More informations about Meghan and Harry’s wedding have been shared by the Royal Communications Secretary.
“We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public.
The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.
We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor.
The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.
Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion.
In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day.
As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. ”
Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit. The couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift.
Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have personally selected seven organisations they would like to support, reflecting their shared values.
Prince Harry and Ms. Markle do not have any formal relationships with the charities chosen. The couple have chosen charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about, including sport for social change, women’s empowerment, conservation, the environment, homelessness, HIV and the Armed Forces. Many of these are small charities, and the couple are pleased to be able to amplify and shine a light on their work.
