Social media noticed something very interesting at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal wedding today. Apparently, the American actress might have gotten inspired by none other than Jennifer Lopez when she created her wedding gown.
As you may already know, as the new royal walked down the aisle today, she wore a gorgeous but simple Givenchy dress with a shallow boat neckline and long sleeves.
Soon after they saw the gown, many Twitter users pointed out that we may have seen a very similar one before.
In the 2001 movie The Wedding Planner, actress, and singer Jennifer Lopez’s character donned a bridal dress just like Meghan’s.

Who knows? Maybe Markle is a fan of the romantic comedy, and she wanted to bring homage to it on her special day.
‘Anyone else think Meghan looks just like JLo in the Wedding Planner?’ one person tweeted.
‘Anyone else get JLO in the Wedding Planner vibes from Meghan Markle’s dress? ? #whoworeitbetter #royalwedding @JLo #meghanmarkle #theweddingplanner,’ another agreed.
‘Anyone else getting a very JLO “Wedding Planner” vibe from the new Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress? #Givenchy #RoyalWedding #RoyalWedding2018,’ yet another post read.
‘@JLo I am a Huge fan of yours. I am watching the Royal Wedding. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Her dress was beautiful. Simple and elegant design by Givenchy….but I said to myself, I have seen that design before. Jennifer Lopez wore it in the movie, The Wedding Planner…a shorter version.’
‘Uh, we saw JLO wear this dress in The Wedding Planner… #ROYALWEDDING.’
Givenchy’s creative director Clare Waight Keller is the one who created the simple yet timeless wedding gown for her.
Stylist Sadaf Razi, who’s worked with Markel before, stated about the creation: ‘What a historical moment by Claire Weight from Givenchy! She looks breathtaking. It’s both soft and ethereal but classic and completely regal at the same time. It captures her essence perfectly in a dress that’s both strong and feminine.’
