31 Details You Might Have Missed In Harry And Meghan's Wedding

Including all the nods to Princess Diana.

1. Meghan's stunning veil had special meaning. She wanted to incorporate all 53 Commonwealth countries into the wedding, so the national flower of each one was embroidered onto her veil.

2. Crops of wheat were blended with the flowers, to symbolise love and charity.

3. The veil was also decorated with the California poppy, to represent Meghan's place of birth, as well as wintersweet, a flower that grows in Harry and Meghan's private garden at Kensington Palace.

4. Speaking of their private garden, Meghan's bouquet included flowers that Prince Harry had picked from it the day before.

6. It also contained sprigs of myrtle from a plant grown by Queen Victoria in 1845, as well as from the same plant used for the current Queen's bouquet in 1947.

Royal bouquets have included myrtle since 1858.

15. The Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance at the wedding since giving birth to Prince Louis. In a move praised by many, she wore a dress she's worn on at least three previous occasions.

She wore the Alexander McQueen dress for Charlotte's christening in 2015, the Queen's 90th birthday in 2016, and an event for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele in 2017.

16. Not one, but two guests were spotted wearing the same dress that was featured in Lifetime's Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance telemovie.

OMG one of the guests is wearing the same outfit from when Meghan met the queen in the Lifetime movie! 😱 #RoyalWedding https://t.co/9SxDO6k2i9

19. Harry took a moment to thank Prince Charles for walking Meghan down part of the aisle...

20. ...before telling Meghan how amazing she looked, adding,"I'm so lucky".

21. He looked like he was wiping tears at one point.

22. But he couldn't help but smile at Meghan when the priest mentioned having children.

23. Plus, Harry and Meghan exchanged this cute glance when the priest talked about them starting their married life together.

24. When Harry oh-so-carefully lifted Meghan's veil from her face, he said something to her – which a lot of people think was a "hi".

25. And he gently caressed her hand with his thumb during the performance of "Stand By Me", causing this sweet exchange.

26. Let's just pause for a moment and take in the way they looked at each other during their vows. So much love!

27. Harry and Meghan weren't the only loved-up royals at the wedding. Zara Phillips, Harry's cousin, who is pregnant with her second child, shared this cute moment with her husband Mike Tindall.

28. Back to the main event, and Harry departed from tradition in a really sweet way. While royal men typically don't wear wedding rings, he chose to wear a platinum band. Meanwhile, Meghan's wedding ring is made out of Welsh gold – a gift from the queen.

Welsh gold has been used in royal wedding rings since 1923.

29. Showing the couple's thoughtfulness, there were slippers for all of the guests to change into after the ceremony.

30. And Harry and Meghan headed to their reception looking like something straight out of a Bond movie, in an electric-powered vintage Jaguar...
