Meghan Markle has worn a dress from designer Givenchy for her wedding to Prince Harry.

There had been a great deal of speculation about the Royal Wedding, including a lot about the dress of the bride to be, which had been kept secret until Saturday.

As she arrived at Windsor Castle, it was revealed that the upcoming Duchess of Sussex wore a gown by Clare Waight Keller, the Artistic Director at the Givenchy fashion house.

The traditional dress, an off the shoulder and high necked floor length dress, featured a long train and tiara at the ceremony for St George’s Chapel.

Waight Keller became the first female Artistic Director to head the iconic French brand.

Multiple other designers including Erdem, Ralph and Russo and Stella McCartney were all suspected of secretly designing the elegant dress.

Roland Mouret, a famed gay French designer was also pipped to design the dress, as well as getting an invite to the ceremony.

Markle arrived shortly after Princes William and Harry, who both wore frockcoat uniforms tailored by Dege & Skinner on Saville Row.

Even former Spice Girl turned fashion icon Victoria Beckham was suspected by many of having designed the dress for Markle, with bookmakers putting odds at 4/1 for a Beckham designed gown.

The most recent Royal Wedding was that of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011 and featured a lot of the same speculation around the famed dress.

Middleton, who became the Duchess of Cambridge with her marriage, wore a dress designed by the fashion house of Alexander McQueen, who died in 2010.

A new film about the iconic gay designer is expected to be released later this year, including exclusively-revealed home video footage.

On May 2, the trailer for the upcoming biopic McQueen hit our screens, which tell the story of a child who had no links to the rag trade, but opted to start working aged 16 for Savile Row tailors Anderson & Sheppard.

The one-man force of nature behind the pop culture tidal wave that was Cool Britannia will be placed under the microscope, as interviews with family, friends and collaborators are revealed to the world.
