He explained: “Meghan seems to have a strong affection for Princess Diana and this shows through her changing the wording of her marriage vows.

“She and Harry chose to change ‘man and wife’ to ‘husband and wife’ and remove the word ‘obey’, just like Diana and Charles did when they wed.

“Doing so suggests Harry wanted to honour his mother on his big day and displays Meghan’s desire to have an affinity with Diana.”

Meanwhile, there were other aspects of their wedding in which the couple paid tribute to Harry’s late mother Diana.

Meghan included forget-me-nots in her bridal bouquet.

They were reportedly Diana’s favourite flower.

Meanwhile, Mr Stanton said Meghan’s “something blue” was a piece of the dress she wore on her first date with Harry.

She had it sewn into her veil.

Mr Stanton explained: “This hidden detail was probably intended to be a private gesture between Meghan and Harry to remind the couple of the early days of their relationship.”

Harry and Meghan will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary on Thursday (May 19).

However, Meghan’s family didn’t attend apart from her mother Doria Ragland.

Meghan was walked down the aisle by Harry’s dad Prince Charles as her own father, Thomas Markle, was unable to attend due to a recent heart surgery.
