In front of nearly 2 billion viewers and 1900 guests, Kate Middleton and Prince William will marry.
Beyond the celebration of the marriage, there is one thing that will attract the attention of viewers: the bride’s gown.
The reason why this is attracting so much attention is that the dress chosen by Kate symbolizes her personality and her new status as a princess.
Rumors are rife when it comes to the designer responsible for achieving this ultimate symbol. So far, Buckingham Palace has remained very quiet on the subject.
After tabloids speculated on the name of Sarah Burton, artistic director at Alexander McQueen, doubts were focused on Sophie Cranston, designer of the brand Libelula, who denied the allegations, telling Us magazine that it’s “not true.”
The Daily Mail even claimed that it is Kate who designed the dress herself. Princess Diana’s favorite Bruce Oldfield and designer Alice Temperley are other possible “favorites.”
Nonetheless, the secret is well kept and the surprise will be that much more impressive when the bride comes out of the Rolls-Royce Phantom, which will lead her to the Abbey.
