Representative for Meghan and Harry Clears Up Those ‘Secret Wedding’ Rumors
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry surprised international audiences with the claims they made during their tell-all interview with Oprah. While some people claim they don’t believe anything Meghan says, others are looking at the royal family wondering which one is racist. Meanwhile, the royals wish Meghan and Harry would stop talking to the media.
One of the major surprises to come out of the interview was when Meghan said that she actually married Harry in a secret wedding in their backyard three days before the royal wedding everyone saw on TV. Her exact words were, “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.”
That sounds sweet and all, but is it true? The world has been wanting to know which wedding date is the real, official wedding date.
Watch the video below to hear what a former clerk told The Sun about the backyard wedding and the royal wedding.
So, did Meghan lie to Oprah? No, not exactly. If you look at what she said, she never claimed that the backyard ceremony was the official legally-binding wedding. Yet, it seems misleading.
A spokesperson for Meghan and Harry hopes to clear up the confusion. This spokesperson told The Daily Beast that “the couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.”
Okay, so the real wedding was the one everyone saw on TV. What Meghan told Oprah about was a ceremony that happened but was not a legally binding wedding. That’s cleared up, or is it?
What Meghan said to Oprah was obviously misleading. Did she say anything else that was misleading? Although the couple doesn’t like the fact that the Queen’s official statement about the interview is that “recollections may vary,” we can’t help but wonder if there’s some truth to that claim after all.
Regardless, we now know that the official legally binding wedding date for Meghan and Harry was May 19, 2018, as we originally thought.
Which surprises you more, the fact that Meghan told Oprah that she and Harry got married three days before their televised wedding or the fact that the televised wedding was the real one after all? Do you think anything else Meghan said during the interview will end up being misleading and not 100% accurate?
