Meghan Markle and Prince Harry admitted they had their own secret ceremony alone three days before the royal wedding.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey in the explosive interview that the royal wedding was a "spectacle for the world" and that they wanted their union to be "between them".
The couple told Oprah that they wed in their back garden three days before the royal wedding, and were married by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Meghan said: "I was thinking about it, you know our wedding—three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that.
"We called the Archbishop and we just said, look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world.
"But we want our union between us, so the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury and that was the piece that..."
Prince Harry added: "Yeah, just the three of us".
Meghan said she was excited about her new life with Harry, Archie and their baby girl and was looking forward to living "authentically".
She said: "It's so basic but it's really fulfilling."
