The official royal wedding portrait for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's nuptials were included in the "A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex" exhibit in Scotland, where the then-newlyweds decided to narrate their love story for the museum.

"A great level of detail went into the planning of our wedding day," Meghan said in the recording. "We knew how large the scale of the event would be, so in making choices that were really personal and meaningful, it could make the whole experience feel intimate."

Harry later explained his choice of attire.

"I chose the frock coat as a uniform, with permission from my grandmother, because I think it’s one of the smartest Household Cavalry uniforms," Harry explained. "It’s one of my favorites, and I was very fortunate to be able to wear that on the day."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry enjoy the fireworks after saying "I do."

The duo later gushed over the 17 children that were a part of their wedding party.

"We had 10 bridesmaids and page boys under the age of 7, which everybody says is impossible to have them behaving, but they did it," Harry joked.

"It was a miracle," Meghan quickly added.

Five years after their ceremony, Harry's time with Davy resurfaced in his court trial over alleged phone hacking.

The former army captain had kicked off his legal battle against the British tabloid industry, and his time with the entrepreneur was used as evidence for the case.

"Our relationship was long distance for the majority of the time we were together, with Chelsy and I often living in different countries, so we relied on communicating by phone a lot," Harry said in a written statement.

Davy's wedding gesture was reported by The Mirror.
