In just six months, Meghan Markle is due to walk down the aisle and wed Prince Harry in what is sure to be a fairy-tale wedding. And every Cinderella story needs a wedding dress that looks like only a fairy godmother could’ve cooked it up. So, who does a princess-bride-to-be turn to? Reportedly, none other than fan-favorite wedding dress designer Inbal Dror.
The Israeli designer, known for feminine and sultry gowns, just revealed that it has sent a sketch off to England, as per requested by Kensington Palace. (Can you even imagine getting such a request?!) “We received a request from the royal family to send a sketch,” a spokesperson from the label told People.
We already got somewhat of a sneak peek of what Meghan might wear down the aisle when we asked designers Hayley Paige, Ines Di Santo, Lazaro, and more what they envision for the royal-ish bride. (You can see all their stunning sketches here!) So, what does this new, requested design look like? Does it have Kate Middleton’s long lace sleeves and Queen Anne neckline? Does it have a train that could rival Princess Diana’s? Well, as of right now, the sketch is under lock and key, with Inbal Dror refusing to give any wedding-dress details. “Unfortunately it’s a secret and I can’t give more details about the sketch,” the label told People.
The rumor that this particular couturier was slated to design Meghan’s dress first appeared in the Jerusalem Post, and now it seems like the designer really might just score the coveted gig. If Inbal Dror does end up designing the gown, it would be a far cry from the types of frocks we usually see at royal weddings.
While most royal wedding dresses have had a conservative flair, Inbal Dror’s designs usually have a cool sexuality with their sheer paneling and down-to-there necklines, as seen in the recent Fall 2018 collection.
We wonder what the queen has to say about this!
