We've saved the date (May 19, 2018) and know where the royal wedding is taking place (St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle). Now, the biggest questions on everyone's minds are who will be designing Markle's dress and what will it look like. With less than three months to go, the rumor mill has been going wild, but here's what we know so far: Last month, Omid Scobie, a royal reporter and biographer, confirmed to ABC News that Markle had officially selected her wedding gown designer and already had a dress fitting. Scobie also revealed that Meghan wants to wear something simple, classy and very elegant.
The front-runners for the highly coveted designer role are Alexander McQueen and Ralph & Russo. And since the English apparently bet on everything, there is a wager on who Markle will wear when she marries Prince Harry. On Monday, the English betting website Betfair saw a sudden spike in bets on Alexander McQueen (the same designer that future sister-in-law Kate wore when she wed Prince William in 2011) and suspended further bets indefinitely. This abrupt suspension could also be due to a late entry into the royal "race" for Markle's dream dress. According to People, London-based fashion designer and close friend of the bride-to-be, Roland Mouret, is rumored to be Markle's top choice for her real-life fairytale wedding gown.
Since we couldn't reach any of these design houses for comment, we've asked some of our favorite designers to sketch what they think Ms. Markle will wear on the big day. Take a look at the fantasy gowns:
