I sat on my couch two years ago, sipping a fragrant cup of herbal tea out of my Meghan and Harry mug, as I watched the royal couple tie the knot. If you’re a decent lip-reader, you’ll remember when he whispered to her “You look amazing. I am so lucky.” What a gentleman!
If you keep up-to-date on anything royal, you’ll know that a lot has changed since then! Still, their wedding truly was one for the books. Of course, there were the extravagant hats, decadent floral displays, tons of lesser-royals I forget about (sorry, guys) and tears, but at this wedding, there was something special. Meghan wore a simple and modern gown for the ceremony, though the real showstopper was her reception dress! She was sung to by an American gospel choir and OPRAH came. Yes, Oprah. Harry and Meghan know how to throw a party while honoring tradition and highlighting heritage.
More than knowing how to throw a party, they know how to show love and respect for one another and people around the world. Aside from all of the drama, Harry and Meghan have been busy running their non-profit organization, Archewell. I did a little digging and learned that they chose this name because the Greek word “arche” means “source of action” (Archie = Arche). Aside from that, Meghan recently teamed up with Save the Children and did a fantastic story-time segment available on instagram. We are donating the proceeds from our Picture Hope coloring book to the same organization! That makes us just like Meghan, right?
Okay. Now that I’ve talked about how wonderful Harry and Meghan are for humanitarian reasons, I can talk about what we all guiltily came here for: FASHION.
Since joining the royal family, Meghan has become an icon. And in the months since Megxit, she has stepped up her wardrobe in a big way. I’ve been feeling a little tired of my same two house dresses and have spent a fair bit of time looking at pictures of Meghan and Kate for fashion inspiration. You’ll love what I found!! The mix of classic elegance with modern, playful touches is perfect. Truthfully, that’s what I hope Lars makes you, dear reader, think of. I’d like to think Meghan is a Lars girl. 😉
Two years ago, we wrote about the wedding and made a mood board! If you want to see their wedding style synthesized, try this out! You probably have one friend who is a big time fan of all things royal (mine is named Dana). Send her something from our Royal Weddings collection!
