The Telegraph reports that the clip of Meghan Markle seeing her wedding dress in the Queen of the World documentary actually shows her being “reunited with her wedding gown and veil for the first time since her wedding day,” as it gets prepared for an exhibition. No wonder why she looked so calm.
When Meghan Markle was plunged into the royal world and wed into the monarchy with a ceremony viewed by millions of people, she stayed impressively cool, calm, and collected through it all. And it appears she was equally poised even before the wedding.
New footage from the upcoming Queen of the World documentary shows the Duchess of Sussex seeing her gown the day before the royal wedding, Marie Claire points out. And she’s looks completely untroubled. (Bride goals.)
“Fifty-three countries, oh my goodness,” Markle said while touching her veil, which was embroidered with a flower from each of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.
“It’ll keep us busy,” she added. Though she could’ve been speaking of her wedding day, it’s also possible she was talking about her upcoming work with the Commonwealth itself. After her wedding, Meghan would go on to join husband Prince Harry as a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.
If you look closely, it appears Markle is wearing the navy Roland Mouret dress she wore the day before her wedding, according to Marie Claire. (The notched neckline gives it away.) She was spotted in the sleek frock while arriving to Cliveden House with her mother, Doria Ragland, the night before her wedding.
Ultimately, Queen of the World is about much more than behind-the-scenes footage of the royal wedding; it gives us an inside look at the monarch’s life, and how she’s handing down her royal responsibilities to the next generation.
Don’t worry, Meghan Markle fans; the Duchess of Sussex will make more appearances in the film, as she’s set to give her first televised interview as a royal for this documentary.
Queen of the World premieres on October 1 at 8 p.m. ET on HBO, HBO Go, and HBO Now in the U.S. Watch the trailer below.
