If you've ever wondered what happens on the morning of a royal wedding, Harry and Meghan's docu-series has just given you the answer—Meghan Markle revealed her wedding breakfast and we're taking notes!

While we have all the intel on Meghan Markle's makeup on her big day, the morning of the wedding has remained somewhat of a mystery—well, until now that is.

The Duchess of Sussex has let slip the three things she had to have before heading to the chapel to marry Prince Harry (if you need a reminder of Harry and Meghan's relationship timeline, we've got you!) and we're officially adding them to our own dream wedding wishlist...

In episode four of their Netflix documentary (which is now streaming alongside episodes five and six), the couple, along with Harry and Meghan's friends, shared intimate details about their wedding day in 2018. They talked about everything, from her elegant wedding dress to their gospel choir—but our favorite moment had to be Meghan's wedding brekkie!

The former Suits actress revealed that despite the grandeur of the history-making event, she was so calm.

She joked: "On our wedding day, I went into a really calm space. I don't know how I was so calm. I look back and, 'How was I so calm?!'"

Before adding that despite it being one of the biggest days of her life, all she wanted was these three, very relatable things to mark the occasion—a mimosa (a cocktail consisting of champagne and orange juice), a croissant (a dream combo), and the song 'Going to the Chapel' as the soundtrack to her morning.

She said: "All I wanted was a mimosa, a croissant and to play the song 'Going To The Chapel'. And that's what I did and it was great!"

Yep...  Before billions of people watched her get married as a glowing bride in white, Meghan had already enjoyed a morning mimosa with an all-butter croissant. The only thing that could top this would be if Meghan also donned her iconic sunglasses with her morning tipple.

And while the reactions to Harry and Meghan's docuseries may not be unanimous, at least most of us can agree that this was one very cool way to kick off such a momentous occasion...

So, if you too are planning a wedding, perhaps take a leaf out of the Duchess' book and start the day off with chill vibes only—plus a few mimosas!

What's in a mimosa? Meghan's wedding morning bev

In case you're wanting to channel Meghan with her wedding drink ASAP, a mimosa is a fruity cocktail made from champagne and chilled orange juice.

It's traditionally serviced at a wedding or fancy occasions, like a brunch—it's a very sophisticated drink indeed, but it's actually very easy to make.

According to BBC Good Food, it's very similar to Bucks Fizz and all you need is one bottle of champagne (or prosecco) and one carton of orange juice.

Simply pour half and half into your champagne glass and hey-presto, you're done! One bottle of champagne should cover six glasses of mimosa.
