Prince Harry and Meghan Markle admit they didn't get officially married three days before Windsor wedding ceremony

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been forced to clarify they did not secretly marry three days before their Windsor wedding ceremony as claimed in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

A wedding certificate for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has confirmed the pair were officially wed on May 19, 2018, at Windsor Castle - not in the pair's backyard as stated by Meghan. 

"You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that," Meghan told Oprah in the bombshell-laden CBS interview. 

"The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury." 

Stephen Borton, former chief clerk at the Faculty Office, told The Sun: "I'm sorry, but Meghan is obviously confused and clearly misinformed."

"They did not marry three days earlier in front of the Archbishop of Canterbury," he continued.

"The Special Licence I helped draw up enabled them to marry at St George's Chapel in Windsor and what happened there and was seen by millions around the world was the official wedding as recognised by the Church of England and the law." 

Now a spokesperson for the couple has confirmed to The Sun that they had "privately exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding". 

The couple's wedding certificate lists the witnesses as Harry's father Prince Charles and Meghan's mother Doria Ragland. 

Multiple news outlets have pointed out that Harry's assertion that the backyard ceremony with the Archbishop included "just the three of them" would have meant there were not enough witnesses to validate the ceremony.
