While the world is still buzzing about Meghan Markle's timeless wedding dress, there's soon to be a new royal bride in town. In another ceremony of likely fairytale proportions, Princess Eugenie is set to walk down the aisle October 12, giving the public yet another royal frock to fawn over.

Eugenie and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, announced their wedding date and venue—St. George's Chapel, where Harry and Meghan wed—just two weeks after their engagement went public. Quick turnaround! But, this bride-to-be seemed to have an exact vision in mind, especially as pertained to her wedding dress.

The 28-year-old royal revealed a few gown details to British Vogue's features editor, Ellie Pithers. "I'm not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer," Princess Eugenie admitted. If history repeats itself from the borderline obsessive pre-wedding speculations centered around Meghan Markle's gown (British gamblers and all), we have a feeling this tidbit is about to open up a whole new can of worms.

We trust Eugenie's British dress designer of choice will remain under wraps until the big day (as did Meghan's), but she did add that she immediately knew exactly who to call on for the high-stakes task. "[The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about," she said. "As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I'd be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I've been pretty on top of it."

On top of it, indeed. Deep in the throes of wedding planning (with help from her mother, Sarah Ferguson), the future bride and Brooksbank seem to have crossed plenty off their checklist already based on the info we know so far. The couple recently announced that their reception will be held at the bride's family home, Royal Lodge in Windsor. Princess Eugenie has also unsurprisingly chosen her older sister, Princess Beatrice, as her maid of honor. Plus, keeping in line with eco-friendly fads, the wedding will be entirely plastic-free.

While the matter of potentially televising the event is up in the air, we still can't wait to see what dress Eugenie and the elusive British designer have whipped up for the big day in just 57 more days! Let the royal wedding countdown begin (again).
