Most of the world is already aware of Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's royal wedding, which took place in May 2018. From Meghan's flawless wedding gowns to an iconic carriage ride around Windsor following the service, the couple's wedding was simply unforgettable. And according to the new book, Finding Freedom, there were even more magical moments during the special day that we didn't previously know about.
Co-written by BAZAAR's Royal Editor at Large, Omid Scobie, and royal correspondent Carolyn Durand, Finding Freedom has been serialized in The Times, The Sunday Times, and People magazine. According to Harper's BAZAAR UK, an excerpt published by People revealed that the Sussexes "were joyful on the big day—with their first dance to 'I'm in Love' by '60s soul singer Wilson Pickett." According to the Finding Freedom excerpt, "Meghan also delivered her own toast at the reception."
Pickett, a famous American soul singer and songwriter, is known for a number of hit records including "In the Midnight Hour," "Mustang Sally," and "Funky Broadway."
While it's been speculated that the Sussexes were involved in the production of Finding Freedom, a spokesperson revealed to Harper's BAZAAR UK, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting."
