You can’t unseen it…
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married on Saturday in a touching (and star studded) ceremony at St George’s chapel, Windsor Castle.
But while there were A-list royal wedding guests in attendance and a Pinterest-worthy reception, it wasn’t either of those that got the world talking this week, with the official wedding photos getting all the attention instead.
That’s right, Kensington Palace’s Instagram account released three official photographs from the day, taken by photographer to the stars, Alexi Lubomirski, especially selected by the couple to capture their special day.
But the photos didn’t just give us all the feels, with Meghan and Harry appearing happier than they ever had, they also revealed some things about the day that the public had missed.
Firstly there was Prince Harry’s tribute to his late mother Princess Diana, sitting on the same sofa for the photos that she did for his christening portraits.
The hidden detail that’s getting the world talking today however, surrounds four-year-old bridesmaid Ivy Mulroney, daughter of Meghan’s best friend, Jessica Mulroney.
In the images released by Kensington Palace, the little bridesmaid is photographed without a bouquet, and on closer inspection, it looks like she never had one at all, walking down the aisle without flowers and instead holding hands with fellow mini bridal party members, Rylan and Remi Litt.
The bridesmaid, who also stood out from the others as she didn’t wear a flower garland, shared three-year-old Florence Van Custem’s bouquet for the official photographs, with the two girls posing with the same flowers.
‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday,’ announced a Kensington Palace spokesperson. ’They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world.’
There’s no word yet as to whether Ivy not having a bouquet was a conscious decision or whether it was down to a mishap on the big day, but luckily it looks like despite being bouquet-less Ivy still had a wonderful day.
