Meghan Markle’s dress reportedly copied a major element from the gown that Queen Elizabeth II wore on her coronation day.

Isabella Sullivan, a journalist for Express, revealed that the flowers stitched on Markle’s 16-foot wedding veil as a nod to the 53 Commonwealth countries was something that the Queen also had on the gown that she wore several years ago.

Her Majesty’s coronation dress was designed by Norman Hartnell, and his first sketches included floral patterns of the home nations, namely, England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Island. But it was the Queen that suggested for her gown to feature the 53 flowers from the Commonwealth woven into her attire.

In the documentary “Queen of the World,” Markle talked about her decision to pay tribute to the Commonwealth countries on her wedding day.

“I knew it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn’t know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together. It was important for me, especially now being a part of the royal family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated,” Markle said (via Express).

But in a new teaser for HBO’s documentary, Markle revealed that her veil also featured another detail that was different from the Queen’s coronation day gown. The “Suits” alum said that she snuck a California poppy to the design as a tribute to her home country the United States.

Markle was born and raised in Los Angeles, and her mom, Doria Ragland, still lives in the city. When Markle starred in “Suits,” she transferred to Toronto, Canada, and she fondly calls it her second home.

The Duchess of Sussex tapped Clair Waight Keller to design her wedding dress. After two or three meetings with the designer, Markle said that she trusted Keller implicitly. Prince Harry’s wife said that she only saw her wedding dress on the morning of May 19.
