In her reception dress by Stella McCartney, Duchess Meghan enchanted not only her partner Prince Harry but also the fans on the evening of her royal wedding. In an interview, the designer of the dreamy gown revealed what role the dress truly played for Meghan.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding on May 19, 2018, saw the Duchess of Sussex stun in a gorgeous white reception dress.

Meghan's gown was designed by Stella McCartney, and the British designer spoke in an interview about her collaboration and just what the dress was supposed to mean.

The designer also revealed that Meghan helped design the dress, giving it a very personal touch.

"The role that she's taken on is very austere, it's very serious and I think there's a great weight that she has acquired through that and she takes it very seriously," the designer said.

"[The dress] was the last moment that she could reflect sort of the other side to her... the joy and the human within her," McCartney said of the meaning behind the design.
