Meghan Markle’s friend Janina Gavankar spills about Prince Harry’s sweet and empowering speech

She found the dress code for the ceremony tricky!


It has been a week since we were crying into our Pimms watching the wonderous royal wedding and thankfully details about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day are still seeping out.

The bride’s friend, Trueblood’s Janina Gavankar spoke to Town and Country about how the couple’s speeches to each other made her feel confident that the newlyweds will use their positions of power for good.

“The speech that Harry gave was so funny, self-deprecating, filled with love, and that guy just has her back. I left feeling so solid for them. I walked away feeling so confident that these two will put their combined power into the world for good,” she said.

Gushing with admiration for her friend she continued, “They did it apart. They’ve done it apart their entire lives. Imagine what they can do together.”

Recounting the wedding reception she said, “We all danced until the wee hours. We partied and celebrated and ate sliders at 2 in the morning. It was such a beautiful day and a carefree night, and it was a very powerful day in history. And I think everybody felt it across the world.”

The actress couldn’t find a stylist to dress her for the celebration and struggled with the strict rules guests were issued saying, “Many of the Americans commiserated over how difficult it was to find dresses that fit all the requirements. We were told panty hose at some point but many Americans didn’t wear them. I did—I was so afraid of screwing up that I just followed all protocol, but there were some rebels in our group.”
