Meghan Markle STUNS In Gorgeous Gown By British Designer

Meghan Markle has arrived at the altar for her wedding to Prince Harry.

She has chosen British designer Clare Waight Keller for the fashion house Givenchy for her wedding dress.

"The dress epitomises a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952," Kensington Palace said in a statement.

She is wearing Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to her by The Queen.

Australia also found a place in Meghan's jaw-dropping outfit. Ms. Markle wanted to have all 53 countries of the Commonwealth represented throughout her journey.

The gorgeous veil designed by Ms Waight Keller is decorated with distinctive flora of each commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. The golden wattles represent Australia.

The dress, made of pure white bonded silk cady, features an open bateau neckline that "gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasises the slender sculpted waist," the Palace said in a statement.

The train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza.

The blushing bride wore earrings and bracelet made by Cartier.

Meghan was accompanied by her mother, Doria Ragland, for the journey from Cliveden House to Windsor Castle in a vintage Rolls-Royce limousine, loaned for the day by the Queen.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom IV they drove which was built and delivered to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in 1950 when she was still Princess Elizabeth.

The Duchess of Cambridge used the same model for her trip to Westminster Abbey for her wedding in 2011.
