Recently, Prince Harry and Meghan are said to be pushing for their daughter's baptism at Windsor Castle. Their demand seems breathtaking considering what they've revealed on the Oprah show. After rewatching it, eagle-eyed fans found that Meghan's outfit disclosed why the pair were breaking up with Buckingham Palace.
Since Harry announced his romance with actress Meghan Markle, the royal couple have received a barrage of negative comments. After their exit from Buckingham Palace, they seemed finally entitled to arrange a sit-down interview with Oprah to tell their side of the story.
After CBS released the program's trailer, the couple made headlines because it was their first interview after the "Megxit." The official ratings revealed that over 17 million viewers tuned in to the show. However, only a small group of people noticed their intentional outfits.
To our surprise, Prince Harry didn't dress like a Prince. He wore a light-grey J. Crew suit with an open-collared white shirt, all of which cost around $700. The outfit may seem modest, but wait till you see its true meaning.
Harry chose the slim-fitting suit of an American brand, which made him appear more like someone who lived in Santa Barbara rather than a British Prince. The plain suit meant a lot to him because he had worn it to his first child Archie's first photocall and baptism. Meghan's outfit has even more hidden details.
The duchess wore a black Armani wrap dress. The designer brand is popular among the Hollywood elite, and her choice showed that she aimed to appear more like a celebrity than a royal who adhered to tradition. Take a closer look at her right shoulder, and you'll understand more about her personality.
A white lotus flower blossomed on her black gown. The flowers can thrive in the harshest conditions and symbolize understanding and renaissance. The theme perfectly matched her topics: how she managed to go through "almost unsurvivable" mental health problems and her royal relatives' indifference towards her illness.
Her dress reveals more than her blossoming figure. You can see from the photo that Meghan was expecting her second child. It was the first time she showed her bump clearly in public, which might have been a sign that she would have a tell-all talk with Oprah. Besides her apparel, Meghan's accessories are also noteworthy.
Meghan wore a Cartier Love Bracelet on her wrist to symbolize her marriage. The design's binding closure and screw motif stood for the Sussexes' unbreakable bond. To make the sign even more apparent, Harry donned a matching one. The other bracelet on her wrist came from a renowned Princess.
Her tennis bracelet by Cartier was from the collection of her mother-in-law Princess Diana, and she wore it as a tribute to Harry's mother. In fact, Meghan has been seen sporting Diana's jewelry a number of times before.
Most famously, the diamond on her engagement ring came from Diana's collection. Besides that, she wore Diana's aquamarine Asprey ring as her "something blue" on her big day in 2018. Meghan and Harry also included "Diana" in their daughter's name. But what would Diana have said about their rebellious Megxit?
Harry told Oprah, "I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out. And very sad." But he implied that Diana would have supported them. He explained, "Ultimately, she'd… all she'd ever want is for us to be happy." Plenty of evidence backs up the belief that the couple's plan was also her long-time dream.
Diana's former voice coach Stewart Pearce told the Daily Mail that the Princess had planned to move to California with her sons to strive for a career in Hollywood. Now Meghan and Harry have realized their common dream to live in the sun-soaked state.
Though their first stop out of the UK was Canada, the pair moved to the US just a few weeks later. The Sun guessed that the couple had relocated for tax reasons. As an American citizen, Meghan would be taxed by both Canada and America, which made the ex-royal couple's life in Toronto way too expensive to afford.
In June 2020, they splurged £11M on an elegant mansion in Montecito, California, where they've been living ever since. The neighborhood is famous for its utmost privacy and for fellow celebrity dwellers, such as Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, and Ellen DeGeneres.
Though the couple had been cut off by the royal family financially, they finally found a way out on their own. Meghan said in the Oprah interview, "We've actually not just survived but are thriving... I think that all of those things that I was hoping for have happened... and this is, in some ways, just the beginning for us."
Inspired by their own experiences, the couple have started their new professional lives. Harry has delivered talks about mental health topics for some financial institutions on Wall Street. Meghan, meanwhile, has staged a comeback in Hollywood and lent her voice to the Disney film, Elephant.
All in all, the couple still believe that their future is promising. Just as Oprah concluded, "So, your story with the prince does have a happy ending." Meghan replied in a self-assured tone, "Yeah, greater than any fairytale you've ever read."
