The designer of the Duchess of Sussex's wedding dress revealed that Meghan wanted to be a pioneer when it comes to royal style.
Clare Waight-Keller, 48, the British creator director of Givenchy, said Meghan, 37, always has a clear idea of what she wants, and the same was true of coming up with her wedding dress.
Talk to Grazia, Waight-Keller told how she saw Meghan one-on-one for several months for meetings that were so secret that she didn't even tell her husband or her fashion house executives.

The intensity of the experience created a deep bond between the couple.
& # 39; It quickly evolved from a designer and a customer relationship to a friendship, in the sense that we have such a level of comfort with each other and share so many special moments, & # 39; she said.
Together the women discussed what was needed of the dress – and the message that Meghan wanted to share.
Waight-Keller continued: & # 39; We were talking about the ceremony, the implications of her coming into the family and what her role would be in the future … what emotions she wanted to portray, how she wanted to develop a new idea of a way to dress for a royal, and also its size. & # 39;

Healthy friendship. Clare said the two women shared a band after working together on a dress, and said they were very close. Pictured: Clare and Meghan as the Duchess of Sussex embrace the designer's hand with the British designer of the ladies' woman award on December 10, 2018
The result was the extraordinary custom gown with its 16ft veil embroidered with Commonwealth flowers.
The dress even made Prince Harry tore apart during the ceremony, whispering: & # 39; You look great. & # 39;
Waight-Keller has dressed her high-profile client a number of times in the following months, each time capturing a style that is clearly yet fittingly royal.
The Duchess of Sussex showed her appreciation for her designer and friend when she surprised her to present her with a gong at the British Fashion Awards.
Printed on the weather, we would one day see Meghan's newborn son, Archie Harrison, in Givenchy's clothing, she joked that she would not force her boyfriend.
She added: “I would not dream of imposing. I think she always has a clear idea of what she wants, but I'm sure he will be a very different royal person. & # 39;
Meghan is a supporter of Givenchy as one of her favorite brands for official appointments. Here she is depicted during a visit to the Association of Commonwealth Universities in London on January 31, 2019
