Typically it’s the bride who has to worry about wardrobe malfunctions on her wedding day, but in the case of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it was the groom who struggled with his fit.
According to Finding Freedom by royals experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the new book that keeps on giving, the Duke of Sussex had a very relatable issue on his big day in May 2018, specifically when he and his new wife were riding in that fairy-tale-esque carriage. “Lifting her hand to her chest, Meghan had just one word when she saw the huge crowds gathered on the grounds of the castle: ‘Wow!,’” Scobie and Durand wrote, per Hello!
Wow, indeed. Unfortunately, Prince Harry wasn’t able to take in the picturesque moment with the same level of awe and enthusiasm. Per the book, “Sitting down in the carriage beside his bride, Harry laughed that his trousers were ‘too tight.’”
To be honest, for all the hoopla surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the former senior royals don’t seem much for pomp and circumstance. According to another excerpt from Finding Freedom, they celebrated one year of married life by having a quiet lunch with Markle’s mom, who was in town to meet a newborn Archie.
“On the anniversary of their first year of marriage, Harry and Meghan enjoyed a traditional Sunday lunch with Doria, her last meal before traveling back to L.A.,” Scobie and Durand wrote, per People. “Her five weeks at Frogmore had flown by, but she had to get back to work.”
This past May, Scobie reported for Harper’s Bazaar that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spent their second anniversary making calls, eating tacos, and drinking margaritas. The couple “enjoyed a low-key celebration, spending part of the day looking back at their 2018 wedding with a number of people over video calls—including some of the vendors who helped bring their Windsor Castle ceremony and receptions to life,” his source claimed. “They all reminisced about what a beautiful and magical day it was.”
You know, minus the pants situation.
