You may be wondering what is so funny about a wedding between two people deeply in love, well 1,200 cheering fans is the answer.
Meghan Markle’s close friend Janina Gavankar spilt details on the Royal Wedding in a new interview with Town & Country. Gavankar, 37, reflected on the unusual atmosphere of having more than 1,000 screaming members of the public just outside the private ceremony.
“One thing that made many of us giggle was that we could hear the wonderful people outside,” she said. “When the vows were happening, they would cheer, and we could hear them. It was a very quiet chapel. We all followed the Queen’s lead. But we could hear everyone cheer and it was so heartwarming. Really, it filled our hearts.”
The former “True Blood” actress confessed she had reservations about the public attending the wedding just outside Windsor Castle.
“Once I was there, I got to see the people that were on the grounds with us,” she explained. “Sharing that with them was unexpected and heartwarming. I really thought that I would be shaken by how public the whole thing was, but I wasn’t.”
In the aftermath of the Royal Wedding, all Gavankar hopes is Markle and Prince Harry get to enjoy some alone time: “I hope for as much privacy as possible. As much as the world will allow them, I hope for more. Truly.”
