In a sneak peak of "Queen of the World", Meghan is seen reunited with her bridal outfit for the first time since she Wednesday Prince Harry ahead of it being displayed in an exhibition in October. "It's my something blue", Meghan revealed while gently inspecting the bridal ensemble. "The piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside?"

She said: "My goodness, it's unbelievable, isn't it".

Meghan reveals that she only saw the veil, which is embroidered with flowers from all 53 Commonwealth countries, for the first time on the morning of the wedding.

She also said her veil had "surprised" other members of the royal family.

The Duchess of Sussex shares her secret "something blue" from her wedding day.

She also said she requested a patch of fabric for her "something blue" and that a snip of the garment she wore on her first date with Prince Harry, 33, was stitched into her gown ready for the big day.

"Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony", Kensington Palace said in a May 19 tweet.

The duchess described her May wedding on the grounds of Windsor Castle as a "magical day".

The Duchess revealed that the embroidery had been intended as "a fun surprise 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".

"And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction, and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play".

"I hope people liked it as much as I liked helping to create it".

Back in May, Harper's Bazaar wrote that Markle's "something old" and "something borrowed" was a tiara belonging to Liz that was originally made for her grandmother, the Queen consort Mary back in the "30s, which included a centre brooch dating back to 1893".

Harry has suggested it was fate he met Meghan as the stars were "aligned" when they got together - a moment which also has great significance for his wife.

Queen of the World airs in the United Kingdom on ITV this week, and on HBO in the USA next week.
