After months of speculation, we finally get the answer to who is designing Meghan Markle's wedding dress! British designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy was the chosen one for Meghan's royal wedding day look. Meghan Markle has just arrived at Windsor Castle in a stunning Givenchy wedding dress, fit for a princess. And we're dying over every detail!

No surprise here: Meghan Markle's wedding dress is absolutely to die for. But the big surprise was always going to be who was designing the fabulous frock. As we learned as Meghan Markle stepped out of the car this morning outside of St. George's Chapel with her mother, Doria Ragland, we finally know that Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy is the lucky designer chosen for Meghan Markle's wedding dress, according to Kensington Palace.

In a statement, the palace says,"The dress epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952." The statement continues, "True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist.

The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity."

Keeping with her royal style to date, Meghan chose a wedding dress that is absolutely princess-worthy, yet has a simple sophistication to it. So Meghan! The gorgeous gown, aptly fit for royalty (it's so very Princess Margaret), features three-quarter-length sleeves, clean lines, a bateau neckline, and a very simple silhouette. Alert the wedding dress world—this is what your brides will want asap! Meghan's wedding dress is keeping with tradition and perfectly appropriate for the historical Windsor Castle.

We're loving the Queen Mary Filigree tiara and the pulled back hair. This choice couldn't feel more regal. Meghan has previously said that Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's look was iconic and minimal, and this choice is equally stunning.

We couldn't think of a more perfect fit for the future princess. Keep scrolling for more photos.
