Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s secret wedding day message spotted by fans

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married in a glittering ceremony five years ago today and later celebrated at an evening reception surrounded by friends and celebrity stars.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appeared to display a secret message on the day of their wedding in May 2018, but it wasn’t spotted until a few years later by some of their fans.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no doubt be celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary today after marrying in a glittering ceremony on May 19, 2018, attended by all immediate members of the Royal Family.

It means millions of Harry and Meghan fans around the world will today be looking back on the big day through the stunning photos and footage at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

But years on from the royal wedding, some fans believed they had spotted a hidden message on the wedding car used to drive to their evening reception.

After the ceremony, the royal couple made an outfit change as they left Windsor Castle for nearby Frogmore House in a blue Concept Zero E-type Jaguar, with Harry at the wheel.

The classic car was originally manufactured 50 years earlier in 1968 but has since been converted to electric power.

But in a moment that has stunned some of their fans, footage of the car shows its registration plate reading as E190518.

It is widely believed the ‘E’ stands for ‘Established’ with the numbers making up the day, month and year of when they married – 190518.

One stunned fan took to Twitter on December 7, 2021 to say she may have spotted the secret message hidden on the vehicle’s number plate.

Vanessa Nguyen Hernández (@VanessaNguyen28) posted two pictures of the car the couple travelled in to their evening reception, and tweeted: “Yoooo I am so embarrassed.

“I was watching the royal wedding for the 200th time and it’s only now that I noticed the licence plate.”

Several stunned Twitter users replied to the post, with @R0SES_R_RED2 writing: “I’ve seen it 1000 times and would have never noticed it if it wasn’t for your post.

‘Forever Harry and Meghan’ (@21caela) commented: “Hahaha I didn’t so thank you for pointing it out.”

Meanwhile, another user added: “Never In a million years. Nice one.”

Harry and Meghan also gave fans a further insight into their wedding day during their recent six-part documentary series on Netflix, which premiered on the streaming platform in December.

During the fourth episode, viewers get the chance to see a number of amazing unseen pictures from the couple’s wedding party.

This saw the Sussexes joke about having to use a sword to cut their wedding cake, with Meghan saying: “It was great. It was all so over the top.

“Most people were like, ‘What is happening? Elton John is performing?’ I couldn’t find my mum. She’d made a beeline for the stage to watch Elton sing.”

There are also pictures of the Rocket Man singer performing on the piano, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex having a laugh with Hollywood actor Idris Elba – a DJ that evening.

Everyone then gathered outside the venue to watch a stunning fireworks display light up the night sky.
