Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed that they hosted an intimate (non-official) wedding ceremony before their actual big day in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, and the Duchess of Sussex also shared that they now have the vows on display at their home.
Speaking to Oprah, Meghan divulged that three days prior to their legal marriage on 19 May 2018, they had a private “union” in their “back yard”, hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

The public event was surely just as special for the couple, but it makes sense that they wanted to have an intimate moment between just the two of them.
