Harry And Meghan Officially Married During Their Royal Wedding

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Duchess Meghan claimed that she and Prince Harry were married three days before the official ceremony. As it now turns out though, this doesn't appear to be the case!

Duchess Meghan said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that her wedding to Prince Harry took place three days before the official ceremony at Windsor Castle. However, British newspaper The Sun has now published the couple's wedding certificate, which shows that their "garden wedding" is considered invalid. 

Harry and Meghan's wedding date confusion explained

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding certificate was recently released by the General Register Office— the couple's registry office. Accordingly, it says Meghan and Harry married on May 19, 2018 at Windsor Castle, which is the day when numerous celebrities were guests at the wedding.

Former registry office officer Stephen Borton confirms the wedding date. "The special license I helped create enabled them to get married in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle," he explained. "What happened there on May 19, 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognized by the Church of England and the law."

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding gifts are returned to the senders

Borton suspects that the couple exchanged self-written wedding vows three days earlier, which led to a misunderstanding. With the publication of the certificate, the confusion about the wedding date of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan— who are currently expecting their second child— has been put to an end.
