The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that he did not marry the Duke and Duchess of Sussex three days prior to their public ceremony on May 19 2018 at Windsor Castle.
In her interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this month, the Duchess claimed that she and Harry had actually been married three days before the big public occasion in their back garden at Frogmore.
Speaking to Italy’s La Repubblica, Justin Welby said the claims made by Meghan are false, explaining: “The legal wedding was on the Saturday,”
“I signed the wedding certificate which is a legal document and I would have committed a serious criminal offence if I signed it knowing it was false.”
In her Oprah interview, Meghan said: “Three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that. But we called the Archbishop and we just said ‘look, this thing, this spectacle, is for the world, but we want our union between us.”
The Duchess added: “The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our back yard with the Archbishop of Canterbury… just the three of us.”
Prior to their wedding, the Archbishop had a number of meetings with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, however, he would not comment on what they were about.
