Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Rep Again Reveals the Truth About That 'Secret Wedding'

One of the most-talked about moments of Meghan Markle‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey was when she claimed that she secretly got married to Prince Harry in a private ceremony days before their televised wedding.

“You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that. The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury,” she said.

The validity of that secret ceremony was brought into question because many people did not believe that it was actually a legal ceremony. In the U.K., there must be a minimum of two witnesses for a legal marriage to take place.

The couple’s rep spoke out days later and confirmed their legal wedding was on May 19, the day of their televised wedding at Windsor Castle.

Now, a new statement has been provided from Harry and Meghan‘s representatives.

The rep told The Daily Beast that “the couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.”

While the private ceremony might have been a spiritual wedding for the couple, it did not constitute a legal marriage.

A former clerk at the Faculty Office in the UK also told The Sun this week, “I’m sorry, but Meghan is obviously confused and clearly misinformed. They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Special License I helped draw up enabled them to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and what happened there on 19 May 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognized by the Church of England and the law.”
