Meghan Markle's Friend Janina Gavankar Reveals Why Royal Wedding Guests Were Laughing During Ceremony

We had seen some curious giggles during the royal wedding notably when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said "I will" but the mystery of the laughing has finally been answered, and all credit goes to the former Suit actress' friend Janina Gavankar.

Millions of royal couple's fans watched the two getting married on live television, the most solemn and important part of the royal wedding ceremony was lightened a bit by some mysterious giggles from Harry, Meghan and the crowd.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby asked Harry at the time,

Harry, will you take Meghan to be your wife? Will you love her, comfort her, honour and protect her, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Harry responded, "I will" after which giggles and smiles from the crowd came as the pair tie the knot. There was a similar reaction when the former reality star repeated the affirmation.

So why? Why and what was those giggles for?

Well, in a recent new interview with Town & Country, Meghan's Pal explained precisely what infused such a serious moment with a little levity.

She said,

One thing that made many of us giggle was that we could hear the wonderful people outside. When the vows were happening, they would cheer, and we could hear them. It was a very quiet chapel. We all followed the Queen’s lead. But we could hear everyone cheer and it was so heartwarming. Really, it filled our hearts.

Janina has said that the ceremony itself felt like a small wedding as 600 guests seated inside the chapel's quire section.

She told the magazine,

If you were in the chapel, it felt like a small wedding because we didn’t see Meghan’s massive walk up the church aisle that preceded the [quire]. It felt like we were just right there with her, with both of them.

She added,

But we could hear everyone cheer and it was so heartwarming. Really, it filled our hearts.

As previously reported, Harry, 33 and Meghan, 36 tied the knot on May 19 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, in front of 600 guests, including, Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II and Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland.
