British fashion designer Stella McCartney says she feels "very proud" to have been part of Meghan Markle’s wedding day.
The Duchess of Sussex chose her to create her second gown for her big day on May 19.
The bespoke high neck and silk crepe lily white dress was revealed as Meghan and Prince Harry made their way to Frogmore House for their evening reception in Windsor.
She teamed it with a pair of Aquarazza shoes and Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring.
McCartney revealed in an interview with the BBC , that the pair worked together on the gown.
"I feel like it’s such a private experience, and as a designer, and a woman, who’s been married, I had to do my dress, it’s such a big deal."
She added "that person has to feel like a million dollars," on their wedding day.
McCartney also suggested that the dress gave Meghan the last opportunity to ‘reflect her human side,’ before officially joining the royal family.
She said: "The role that she’s taken on, it’s very austere, it’s very sort of serious and I think there’s a great weight that she has acquired through that and she takes it very seriously and I think it was the last moment, she could reflect the other side to her: the joy and the human within her"
While McCartney didn’t attend the wedding, she dressed a number of the celebrity guests in attendance, including Amal Clooney in a yellow number and Oprah Winfrey in pink.
Clare Waight Keller, of Givenchy, designed Meghan’s first wedding dress for the ceremony and revealed it was "an honour to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Meghan."
The Duchess attended her first Trooping the Colour parade last weekend, appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony with her husband for the first time.
She will accompany the Queen for a number of engagements in Cheshire on Thursday – her first official duties since marrying into the royal family.
