It's been two years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot on May 19, 2018 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

For some royal fans, it seems like only yesterday that they were eagerly awaiting a glimpse of the former Suits actress in her gown on the big day.

Many spent months ahead of the occasion speculating about the designer and the style she would go for.

Finally the big reveal arrived and we discovered the Duchess of Sussex had opted for a beautiful pure white dress with an open bateau neckline and three-quarter length sleeves, designed by Clare Waight Keller, the Artistic Director of French fashion house, Givenchy.

As with any fashion choice, the dress divided the general public, with some praising the duchess for selecting an elegant design, but others claiming it was too "simple".

And it seems one member of the royal family was also left questioning her pick.

According to the Mail on Sunday, royal sources have revealed that the Queen was "surprised" by the bride's decision to wear white down the aisle.

They said: "The Queen is said to have expressed surprise that Meghan, a divorcee, wore quite such a white dress for her wedding."

Traditionally a white wedding dress has been seen as a symbol of purity and once a woman had married and consummated the relationship, they were no longer meant to wear white as they had lost their virginity.

Meghan has already been married once before and as such the Queen may have expected her to opt for a champagne or soft pink dress for her nupitals.

The 38-year-old tied the knot with movie producer Trevor Engelson in 2011 during a four-day bash in Jamaica.

The pair had been dating for seven years before they wed but their marriage lasted only two years.

For that ceremony, Meghan wore a long, white, floor-length gown with an encrusted silver belt embellished on to the dress.

The strapless dress also featured a short v-plunge at the front.

A lot has happened since Harry and Meghan were married.

The pair welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor On May 6, 2019.

The following years have also seen them leave their positions as full-time working royals and move abroad to live a very different life.

The family had moved to Canada, but are currently residing in the U.S. in Los Angeles during lockdown.
