The day of the royal wedding was full of joy, and had plenty of moments that made you smile. Meghan Markle saw her drama teacher Gigi Perreau for the first time in 20 years, outside Windsor Castle. The cameras captured that sweet moment and Meghan shouted, “Oh my God!” from the horse-drawn carriage which took her and Prince Harry from the ceremony.
Rohit Kachroo, an editor with ITV News, a British publication, told the press that he was standing next to “teacher” Perreau in the large crowd gathered to greet the new couple following their nuptials at Windsor Castle. Perreau was wondering if Megan saw the interviews she had given in the past week.
Alex Beresford, also a TV presenter, was also standing with Perreau in the crowd waiting for Harry and Megan. Before the carriage took the newlyweds away from the royal wedding, the TV host tweeted that Perreau wondered if Meghan would recognize her — and it appears that she did.
A huge crowd gathered on the street from the wedding site in to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they said their wedding vows. Perreau was there as the carriage passed, ad Meghan’s face was full of joy and she exclaimed, “Oh my God!” when she turned her head and saw Perreau.
