With a little over a week to go before the long-anticipated Royal wedding between Prince Harry of Britain and American actress Meghan Markle, no one was expecting to hear the big news so soon. But, according to very reliable sources, the last and most crucial detail for the Royal Wedding can now be checked off the list. That’s right: her wedding gown.
Royal expert Omid Scobie tweeted that "Sources confirm that Meghan’s wedding dress is finished and safely hidden at Windsor Castle until the big day.” So exciting!! And it must give Meghan a sense of relief that she doesn’t have to worry about any last minute disasters where her dress is concerned.
And even though the rest of us will have to wait until May 19th to see the highly-anticipated design, there is one lucky person who will get to take a peek BEFORE the big day
Undoubtedly, the bride has approved of the final results, and now it’s just a matter of waiting until she gets to put it on for real! Scobie continued in her tweet, ”Just one person left to see it - the Queen. Meghan will privately show the gown to HM later this week"
As is a tradition in the Royal Family, the Queen is allowed to view the wedding gown before the ceremony, presumably, so she can rest assured that not only is it done, but that it is completely appropriate and suitable for such an important affair.
The Duchess of Cambridge - then, Kate Middleton - did the exact same thing in 2011 a full three weeks ahead of her wedding to Prince William.
And while the public has not been let in on the tightly-held secret of the designer’s name, we do have a couple of hints as to its what we can expect to see.
According to Brides Magazine, Meghan’s good friend, Priyanka Chopra, who's confirmed that she will be going to the wedding, “appeared on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to give some very evasive answers to Andy Cohen's pointed inquiries about the royal wedding.
When asked whether Markle cried upon seeing the dress, Chopra could not stop grinning and giggling silently, which Cohen (and the rest of us) understood to be a ‘yes’.”
No matter who designed the gown or what style Meghan chose for her romantic walk down the aisle to wed her Prince, we can pretty much guarantee that the bride will be a stunner.
After all, she is a successful actress who is known for her beauty and charm - and we can’t wait to see how she looks on May 19th on the arm of her father, Thomas Markle. (Below, a very young Meghan with her dad)
Even more, we can’t wait to see Harry’s face when he catches his first glimpse of his soon-to-be wife. It’s sure to be a magical moment that no one wants to miss!
