Meghan Won't Say The Word 'Obey' In Her Wedding Vows

Like Princess Diana and Kate Middleton before her, Meghan Markle decided to omit the word "obey" from her wedding vows.

In the past, royal brides have promised to "obey" their husbands. If you're a fan of Netflix's The Crown, there was a whole episode about this, and Queen Elizabeth eventually decided to include it in her vows. Meghan's decision comes as no surprise. She's been vocal about feminist issues, even after her engagement.

She's worked with One World Vision to learn more about the issues women living in Mumbai and Dubai face. She's also served as an ambassador for the United Nations Women. When she was 11, she wrote a letter to Procter & Gamble, telling them their advertisements were sexist.

Here's what they will actually say:

Harry will say the following: "I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow."

And Meghan will say the following: “I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow.”
