Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have retracted their claim that they got married three days before the Royal wedding.
During their interview with Oprah, the couple revealed: “You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that”.
However, the claim was unveiled as false after the General Register Office revealed their wedding certificate for the first time.
The document confirms that they did get married on May 19, 2018 in the publicised ceremony at Windsor Castle.
Stephen Borton, former chief clerk at the Faculty Office, told The Sun: “They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“The Special Licence I helped draw up enabled them to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and what happened there on 19 May 2018 and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognised by the Church of England and the law.
“What I suspect they did was exchange some simple vows they had perhaps written themselves, and which is fashionable, and said that in front of the Archbishop – or, and more likely, it was a simple rehearsal.”
He also added that it was impossible for the pair to have got married at Nottingham Cottage as it isn’t an authorised venue. Moreover, there were not enough witnesses to make it legitimate.
The revelation has put some Brits at ease after they were left fuming as to why the $57 million taxpayer-funded wedding was necessary.
