One Month To Go Before The Much-Awaited Royal Wedding: Find Out Who Could Be Designing Meghan Markle's Wedding Gown, Plus All The Latest Event Updates
With one month to go before the much-awaited royal wedding, we think we we know who could be designing Meghan Markle's gown. No, it's not Alexander McQueen, Elie Saab, Erdem, Victoria Beckham or Sarah Burton.
Today Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle visited the Commonwealth Youth Forum (CYF) at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in London.? Prince Harry opened the forum on Monday and for the last few days, the CYF has set up out to highlight the powerful potential of young people across the Commonwealth. ?Prince Harry and Ms. Markle met some of the young delegates taking part in the forum and heard about how they plan to approach the challenges facing young people around the Commonwealth. ??PA
But, chances are, Meghan has chosen the same pair who designed her unconventional yet exquisite engagement gown: Australian duo Ralph and Russo! Considering how well their couture creation for her turned out, it's highly likely that she'll be collaborating with them for this extra special occasion.
Besides, Ralph and Russo's aesthetic fits the vision Meghan initially had in mind for her dream wedding gown: traditional with a modern twist, and ever so slightly romantic with just enough detail to incorporate a bit of Hollywood glam. But as Harper's Bazaar reported, the news has yet to be a hundred percent confirmed.
When the designers were asked about this juicy piece of news by The Daily Mail, all they had to say was, "We will be politely declining to comment on this topic."
More on the dress(es)
Besides Meghan's choice for a designer, what's even more interesting is that she may not have just one wedding dress, but two!
As is becoming more and more common these days, brides usually have two dresses for their big day: one for the ceremony, and another for the reception. For Meghan, there is talk that the dress she will don when she walks down the aisle will be more royal-like, possibly having sleeves and lace like Kate Middleton's, while the number she has prepared for the evening parties will be less restrictive and much more reflective of her laid-back and understated personal style.
Meghan supposedly had her first fitting in January. Exciting!
News about the overall wedding styling
So excited to be returning as contributing editor for my 6th issue of @weddingvacations. I wear many professional hats, but this one has to be the most fun. Travelling to exquisite resorts, showcasing beautiful bridal and looks for the groom on some of the most incredible couples. This issue features @kaitlynbristowe and @shawn_booth18. They are as kind as they are attractive. Can’t wait to show you what we’ve done! Cheers to the best travelling team around. Who’s gonna be my next couple????
Even Meghan who's proven her impeccable taste in style time and time again needs a trusted pal to help her decide on all the details of the royal wedding of this generation.
Hence, her and real-life stylist and BFF Jessica Mulroney is rumored to be her unofficial wedding planner who she's in constant communication with.
The talk of the town is that Meghan has (courteously) turned down the Palace's suggestions for wedding stylists as they were too old-fashioned and unable to make her vision come to life—including the Queen herself!
She and Jessica have reportedly decided on the flowers, her dress, the color palette, and other details together. With how big of a role she's playing in this wedding, Jessica is also rumored to be Meghan's matron of honor.
The Princess Diana tribute
While there is speculation that Meghan could wear the same tiara that Diana did on her wedding day in 1981, there's even more buzz about how else the Princess of Hearts' daughter-in-law could give her tribute.
Like Diana, Meghan loves flowers. And in her bouquet will reportedly be bulbs of fresh white garden roses—Diana's absolute favorite.
And the honeymoon?
We promised you more and here it is. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Hoanib Valley Camp in Namibia. Opening in May 2018, Hoanib Valley Camp boasts six stylish, solar powered tents with views of the Hoanib River Valley. Desert-adapted elephant, lion, rhino and giraffe can be tracked from here, and there are also cultural activities to enjoy from this extraordinary location. #safarisofcharacter #naturalselectiontravel #naturalselectionsafaris #welcometonamibia #namibia #hoanib #hoanibvalleycamp #desert #wildlife #safaricamp #luxurycamp #safariadventure
The couple is said to be heading to Namibia!
The choice of a destination comes as no surprise to those who know the couple best, as they're aware that Prince Harry and Meghan both love exploring the world's less visited corners.
They're supposed to spend some nights at the super exclusive and incredibly luxurious Hoanib Valley Camp that's surrounded by sand dunes, deserts, and mountains, and is home to some of Africa's rarest wildlife. It's definitely a fitting choice given one of Prince Harry's advocacies of protecting Africa's endangered species.
But, Meghan needs a visa first!
The wedding may be just exactly a month away from today, but even Meghan, a Duchess in the making, still needs to take care of her UK visa before anything wedding-related can proceed!
She was spotted in Chicago last week, possibly to finalize her requirements for her application to become a UK citizen.
