Meghan Markle wedding dress revealed? ‘Elegant yet sexy’ designer shares sketches

Meghan Markle, 36, is set to marry Prince Harry, 33, next May in a ceremony watched by the world.

Prince William, 35, married Kate Middleton, 35, in 2011 and one of the most talked about aspects of the day was the wedding dress.

Kate was widely praised for her lace Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, and the pressure is on Meghan to wear something equally as beautiful.

And the former actress may have already made her choice, with Israeli designer Inbal Dror coming forward to reveal she has been approached to submit designs for the big day.

Dror confirmed to TMZ that she has been contacted by the Royal Family, and shared the three sketches she sent to them.

The designer is an unusual choice for Meghan, who was expected to pick a British fashion house to create her gown.

Vogue has described Inbal Dror dresses as “elegant yet sexy couture creations”.

The designer said of her AW18 collection: “I wanted the dresses to be sophisticated, yet fantasy-like and dreamy.”

Her wedding dresses sell for around £6000 and up, although anything created for a royal wedding is sure to be worth far more.

Celebrities are already big fans of the brand, and Beyoncé and Naomi Watts have both worn Dror’s creations.

Meghan and Harry have set their wedding date for the 19 May – but is there a reason why?

Looking back, no other major wedding has taken place on 19 May in history.

Famous people have of course married on this day before – including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Hollywood actress Jessica Alba – but none with any major significance.

So the couple would not have any comparisons with other nuptials that came before theirs.

The same is true of the Queen’s wedding date, 20 November 1947, with no other historically important weddings on her chosen date at the time.

This rule applies to the weddings of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
