Speaking in the October issue of Tatler, he said: & # 39; Meghan was determined to represent an American fashion house at the wedding since she was American.

& # 39; I assumed it was her own wedding dress, but in the end she said: & # 39; And would you be interested in making this dream come true for my mother? & # 39 ;.
