American actress Meghan Markle who is now the Duchess of Sussex, wore a modest white bridal gown and shone like a diamond at her wedding. The ceremony took place at St George’s Chapel of Windsor Castle in London. The 36-year-old actress kept it simple for her wedding trousseau. Her wedding dress was kept a secret until the bride left for the castle for her nuptials. Her wedding outfit was designed by Givenchy’s Waight Keller .
The ivory silk dress was both elegant and feminine, with a shoulder-framing bateau neckline. The train was kept short less than 16.5-foot. It was hand-embroidered with flowers representing the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.

Though, the designer Waight Keller is not a forerunner, but she was chosen to design the wedding outfit for Meghan Markle, who is a feminist. The 47-year-old designer is one of few women at the coveted Parisian fashion house. Previously, she was the creative director of Chloe, where she aced free-spirited, feminine attributes, with soft colours, elegance and ease.
