Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating three years of marriage on May 19.
The couple married in a public ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2018, followed by a private reception.
Here are six details you may not have known when their wedding took place.
Meghan Markle's veil had 53 embroidered flowers on it to represent each of the countries of the Commonwealth.
Markle wore a 16-foot-long silk tulle veil designed by Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy's first female artistic director. The intricate embroidery on the edge was a sentimental detail.
According to tweets shared by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the veil featured "the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition."
The tweets also noted that this was a creative decision made by Markle, who wanted "all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony."
Insider's Mikhaila Friel reported that the embroidery further included a California poppy, the official flower of her home state, as a nod to her American roots.
Markle wore a ring from Princess Diana's jewelry collection to the wedding reception.
The couple paid a number of subtle tributes to Prince Harry's late mother. Markle wore Princess Diana's Asprey aquamarine ring to her and Harry's evening wedding reception at Frogmore House, which Diana had worn to an auction of her own clothes in 1997.
Markle paired the ring with a Stella McCartney white gown. Speaking to the BBC the following month, McCartney shared that she was "very proud" to be asked by Markle to design the dress.
Markle included Princess Diana's favorite flower in the bridal bouquet.
In a further nod to the late Princess of Wales, Markle carried a bouquet that contained forget-me-nots, Princess Diana's favorite flower, during the wedding ceremony at St George's Chapel, Windsor.
They traveled to their evening reception in a car with a personalized registration plate.
The couple traveled in style to their private evening reception at Frogmore House. The vintage, steel-blue Jaguar E-Type had a personalized registration plate to mark their wedding date, May 19, 2018, written as "190518."
In a tweet from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's account, it was also revealed that the car was electric-powered.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex depart Windsor Castle for a reception hosted by The Prince of Wales at Frogmore House, in a silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero," the account tweeted. "This vehicle was originally manufactured in 1968, and has since been converted to electric power."
Guests were provided with comfortable slippers to wear at the reception.
After a lengthy walk to St George's Chapel for the ceremony, wedding guests were thoughtfully provided with slippers so they could celebrate at the reception in comfort, according to Harper's Bazaar.
Harper's Bazaar reported that Bellisario uploaded an Instagram story of her walking barefoot around the reception carrying her heels. In the video, the publication said she was heard saying: "How amazing is this? Because these shoes have come off. They have slippers for us. Slippers! I'm so ready."
Actor and musician Idris Elba was the DJ at the couple's wedding reception at Frogmore House.
Few details are known about the private wedding reception, but US Weekly first reported that, after attending the ceremony with his now-wife Sabrina Dhowre, Idris Elba provided musical entertainment at the couple's wedding reception by DJing.
When Elba was asked about the wedding on "The Ellen Show" in March 2019, he said: "So Harry and I have hung out a couple of times through his dad. His dad's charity—The Prince's Trust — helped me out as a young actor."
"Harry came to a couple of parties that I DJ'd and he was like, 'What are you doing on the date?'" Elba said. "I told him nothing and he goes 'would you DJ at my wedding?'"
Elba said he recalled thinking, "Is this a joke?"
He also went on to allude to the event in the song "Boasty" with Wiley, Stefflon Don, and Sean Paul, rapping: "Man a big DJ, ask Meghan and Harry."
