Prince Harry had a sneak peek of Meghan's wedding look before the big day – details

It's tradition for the groom not to see the bride in her wedding dress until the big day. But Prince Harry has revealed he was given a glimpse of Meghan's bridal look well before the nuptials. While his wife's gown and veil were kept a secret, Harry actually helped Meghan choose her wedding day tiara. The pair gave a joint interview for new exhibition, A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which showcases their wedding outfits.

In the audio recording, Meghan said: "When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to choose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara. Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with Her Majesty the Queen to select one of the options that were there, which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine."

Speaking of the diamond bandeau tiara which originally belonged to Queen Mary, Meghan added: "I think it was just perfect because it was so clean and simple." Harry then revealed that he was present at the time. "Every girl's dream is to be able to try on a tiara and, funnily enough, it was the one that suited the best, the one that looked the best on you without question," Harry told his wife. "I shouldn't have really been there, but an incredible loan by my grandmother, it was very sweet."
