Inside Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's secret wedding

The bombshell that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married three days before the royal wedding drives home that no one really knew what was going on behind the closed doors with the couple. Meghan revealed that the Archbishop of Canterbury wed her and Prince Harry in their garden, noting that their framed vows hang in their house. "Yeah, just the three of us," Prince Harry confirmed.

Meghan also revealed to Oprah Winfrey why it is the right time to tell their truth about the events that led to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leaving "the firm." The Duchess told Oprah, "As an adult who lived a really independent life, to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be. It's really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege, in some ways, to be able to say, 'Yes, I'm ready to talk.' To be able to just make a choice on your own and just be able to speak for yourself." 

Well, it's clear Meghan and Prince Harry have a lot to share with the world. It's fair to assume this is just the tip of the iceberg.
