Meghan Markle has revealed that a piece of a dress worn on her first date with Prince Harry was her "something blue" on her wedding day. The piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside.

While that bandeau tiara donned by the duchess as she said "I do" ticked all the old and borrowed boxes and her couture gown and veil by Claire Waight Keller at Givenchy was all about new, the something blue remained elusive.

The duchess' decision mirrored that of the Queen for her Coronation gown in 1953, in a sweet nod to her husband's grandmother on their special day.

In an exclusive sneak peek obtained by People from a forthcoming HBO documentary about the royal family, Queen of the World, Markle spilled some revelations about her 16-foot wedding veil. "The work that they did here is just so attractive".

"He was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together", she recalls.

"We knew we wanted it to be very delicate, but then after that point, I just said I trust her implicitly with what she did, and I didn't see it really until the morning of, so this is my first time seeing the veil like this".

In a separate clip released on the royal family's Twitter account, the Duchess discusses in further detail how Clare Waight Keller was able to embroider the flower of all 53 countries in the Commonwealth throughout her veil, and she revealed this was a surprise even to her husband. "We all do." The documentary looks at the breadth of the commonwealth headed by the Queen, and how she is passing on some of her responsibility to the younger members of the royal family.

The two part programme - Queen Of The World - examines the Queen's role on the global stage. Meghan reveals that a tiny fragment of blue material was sewn on to her outfit.

She married Prince Harry at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in May.

"This film is a rare opportunity to see Her Majesty up close and behind the scenes in this role, which means so much to her and has been so significant for Britain and the Commonwealth".

Queen of the World airs in the United Kingdom on ITV this week, and on HBO in the USA next week.
