Duchess Meghan (41) discussed the wedding with Prince Harry (37) in the latest edition of her Spotify podcast "Archetypes". The 41-year-old criticizes the way people discussed it. When Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry got engaged, "everyone was like, 'Oh my God, you're so lucky, he chose you'," she tells her guest, actress Mindy Kaling (43). "And eventually, after you've heard it a million times, you're like, 'Well, I chose him too.'"
But luckily she has a partner who has convinced her otherwise. Husband Prince Harry said to her: "They got it completely wrong, I'm lucky because you chose me," adds the Duchess of Sussex.
In the episode, Duchess Meghan also reveals that she dreamed of her wedding from a young age. "When I was 14 I was planning my wedding, not my actual wedding - that would have been a little harder to imagine," said the 41-year-old. The wedding planning was a task for her religious education at the Catholic school. "I remember every little thing. I wanted it to be at the Bel-Air Hotel and for it to have a swan lake."
She also had precise ideas for the dress: "The dress was strapless and airy, I had seen it in a bridal magazine." She took the job very seriously. "But my grade for the project doesn't really matter, because what strikes me now, in my 40s, is the fact that this project was graded at all, the fact that this project existed at all." At no time can you say that you want to stay single. "The message, even at my feminist all-girls school, was as traditional as it gets. Love first, then marriage," Meghan added.
In November 2017, the couple's engagement was announced publicly. Finally, in May 2018, the big wedding of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan took place. Their first child, son Archie (3), followed in May 2019. Daughter Lilibet (1) was born in June 2021.
