The Archbishop of Canterbury confirms he did not marry Prince Harry and Meghan three days before the Royal Wedding

The Archbishop of Canterbury has insisted that he did not marry the Duke and Duchess of Sussex three days before the Royal Wedding.

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan revealed that she and Harry had got married three days beforehand.

"You know, three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that. But we called the Archbishop and we just said ‘look, this thing, this spectacle, is for the world, but we want our union between us’. The vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our back yard with the Archbishop of Canterbury... just the three of us," the Duchess of Sussex told Oprah.

In an interview with Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper, the Archbishop said: "The legal wedding was on the Saturday. I signed the wedding certificate which is a legal document and I would have committed a serious criminal offence if I signed it knowing it was false."

However, he did acknowledge that he had a "number of private and pastoral meetings with the Duke and Duchess before the wedding”.
