SPARKLING DUCHESS

A post shared by People on Instagram showed Markle in the company of her husband. She sparkled in a sheer black tulle dress by Valentino which sells for $13, 500. The dress featured sequin embellishments, long voluminous sleeves, and a deep v-neck.

The Duchess of Sussex accessorized with gold earrings shaped like wings and wore her hair in her signature bun. She beamed beside the Prince and looked radiant. Apart from the former actress's stunning look, she had a unique role at the wedding.

The mom-of-one gave a reading of "The Vow" by Roger McGough; she chose the passage herself and was the only guest to do so. An excerpt from the poem read,

"I vow to honor the commitment made this day, which unlike flowers and cakes will not wither, and die. A promise not to obey, but to respond joyfully. To forgive, and to console. For once incomplete, we are now whole."

MARKLE AND NONOO SHARE A CLOSE BOND

The wedding took place at the exclusive Villa Aurelian and boasted of the presence of A-List individuals from the fashion world, politics, and Hollywood. Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, graced the event, as well as Katy Perry, and her fiancé Orlando Bloom.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were also in attendance, with James Corden, and Paul McCartney. While the guest list is impressive, the former "Suits" star, holds the title of "Special guest of honor."

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham - Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert

Although the exact timeline of Meghan's friendship with Nonoo remains elusive, the two share a deep bond, and the bride introduced Markle to Prince Harry in 2016. 

Despite, Markle's royal status, the relationship between her, and the designer has not changed, and they remain true to their friendship.
