MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry today admitted they did NOT marry three days before their Windsor wedding.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed to Oprah they had tied the knot “in our backyard” 72 hours before the lavish public wedding on May 19, 2018.
But the Sun yesterday revealed exclusively the formalities DID take place on May 19, 2018, at Windsor Castle.
And a spokesperson for the couple admitted today they had “privately exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.”
Meghan, 39, had stunned the world by telling US talk show queen Oprah: “You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that.
“The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.”
She said she and Harry phoned the Archbishop, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, and asked him to marry them in private at Nottingham Cottage — their home in the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Harry, 36, chimed in: “Just the three of us.”
But their wedding certificate proved the claim was incorrect.
It comes as Harry and Meghan chief of staff has quit after less than a year — the latest of 13 key aides to leave the Sussexes.
Her long-serving agent has also left while the PR team has been sidelined, it has emerged.
Catherine st-Laurent left a plum job with Bill and Melinda Gates to work as Harry and Meghan’s chief of staff last April.
At the time she said she was “honoured” but insiders say the Canadian mother of two became frustrated.
Ms St-Laurent has been shifted to a “senior advisory role” but is not expected to stay. She also stepped down as chief exec of their Archewell Foundation.
HOAR can reveal Meghan has also parted ways with Nick Collins, her agent since she was an unknown actress.
PR team Sunshine Sachs, which represented her when she was on Suits, has been shifted to the couple’s charity ventures.
At least nine other aides quit jobs when Meghan and Harry were working royals.
