"We called the Archbishop and we just said, look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world."

"But we want our union between us, so the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury," Meghan revealed.

The official ceremony

The Duchess spoke about the official ceremony, and how it felt to have their special day broadcast across the world.

She said, "it was like having an out of body experience I was very present for."

"And that's the only way I can describe it because the night before I slept through the night entirely, which in and of itself is a bit of a miracle."

Meghan continued, "And then I woke up and started listening to that song Going To The Chapel, and just tried to make it fun and light and remind ourselves that this was our day."

"But I think we were both really aware, even in advance, that this wasn't our day."

"This was the day that was planned for the world," she pointed out.
