It was also reported that Meghan thanked the Royal Family for “welcoming her in”.

According to HELLO! magazine, English royal weddings “include a speech from the best man, the host and occasionally the groom, but rarely the bride”.

Since their wedding day in 2018, Meghan and Harry have had quite a turbulent time within the royal family.

Last year, the couple decided to step back from their senior royal roles to become “financially independent” while still supporting the Queen.

Meghan and Harry are also expecting their second child – a daughter – sometime this summer.

Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview about why they decided to step back from their duties.

They made a series of shocking allegations and revelations, leaving the world stunned.

Meghan said she felt suicidal during her pregnancy with Archie, and claimed she didn’t receive help from the palace.
