The first one was on April 29, 2011 when Prince William married his longtime partner, Kate Middleton.

The gown was said to have cost $434,000 or PHP22,659,791.

It was a surprising choice, but Meghan still radiated the beauty of a royal-to-be.

The dress reportedly cost $430,000 or PHP22,450,945.

Her hair and makeup were done by Hollywood hairstylist Serge Normant and longtime friend makeup artist Daniel Martin.

Both Kate and Meghan wore tiaras from the Queen's vault for their "something borrowed," as part of royal wedding tradition.

Kate wore the Cartier Halo tiara, while Meghan wore the Queen Mary diamond tiara bandeau.
