In his book, The Substitute, Prince Harry confides in his honeymoon but also his secret ceremony with Meghan Markle.
- In The Substitute, Prince Harry reveals everything
- He returns in particular to his secret marriage before the official ceremony
- But also on their honeymoon
On May 19, 2018, the wedding of the prince Harry and Meghan Markle is broadcast live on television. A unique moment for the couple but also for the British royal family who never suspected for a moment that one day everything would change. In his memoirs, titled The Alternate, the Duke of Sussex returns to the ceremony of his marriage. He specifies in particular that the Archbishop has “united until death [les] separate”in the chapel of Saint-Georges. But now Prince Harry also reveals that before the official ceremony he had given himself to Meghan Markle. Indeed, he returns to a “little ceremony” secret.
Their “only witnesses” were then their dogs, Guy and Pula. “It was unofficial, non-binding, except in our hearts. Our love was born in intimacy, and we had suffered a lot when it became public, so we wanted the first consecration of our love, our first vows to be born in intimacy, too.” Other information revealed: their honeymoon. “We left London in a vehicle disguised as a removal van whose windows had been closed with boxes”he recalled, before specifying that they are “left for the Mediterranean for ten days”. A very pleasant moment despite health concerns. “It was wonderful to be far away, by the sea and in the sun. Even if we were sick. The period before the wedding had exhausted us.”
A grand announcement
Before their union, the entire British royal family had welcomed this marriage. An official press release stated: “His Royal Highness and Mrs. Markle got engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close family members. Prince Harry also sought and received the blessing of Mrs. Markle.” A moment out of time that unfortunately ended very badly. If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are happier than ever, they have almost no connection with the rest of the British royal family.
