Meghan Markle has officially chosen the designer who will create her wedding dress. However, the former Suits star is still keeping the designer's identity under wraps.
A royal insider recently revealed that Markle's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, flew in from Toronto to London to help Prince Harry's fiancée with her decision. Mulroney is a famed bridal stylist in Canada, so she is an expert on wedding dresses.
Meghan Markle Picks Her Wedding Dress Designer
Mulroney was also around when Markle did her fittings with her chosen designer. Prince Harry gave the two women time to exchange ideas, and he did not share his inputs about Markle's wedding dress. Prince Harry wants his wife to choose the dress that she feels most comfortable in.
"This was Meghan's first fitting with the designer and a chance for her and Jessica to look through a number of different designs. During the appointment, Meghan was able to narrow down what she liked and disliked. Some of her favorite design elements include embroidery and sleeves," said the royal insider.
Omid Scobie, a royal reporter, told Good Morning America that Markle wants to wear a simple but beautiful dress on May 19.
"They've tried on a number of different designs and currently whittling it down to pick the best design for the day. During the process, Meghan expressed her desire to wear something simple, classy and very elegant. I think we'll see her go down that route for the wedding day as well," said Scobie.
The Royal Wedding Guest List
Markle and Prince Harry also have to finalize the guest list to the royal wedding soon since the ceremony is less than four months away. The couple has not yet sent out formal invitations to their families and friends, but they have already told some people to save the May 19 date.
Rumors suggest that Prince Harry and Markle will invite former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, to their wedding. Since Markle is not a huge supporter of President Donald Trump, it is possible that she will not invite the president.
Other possible guests include Markle's good friend, Priyanka Chopra, tennis superstar Serena Williams, designer Misha Nonoo, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.
Markle's mom, Doria Radlan, will most definitely attend her wedding. Her dad, Thomas Markle, will also be there as he previously expressed his desire to walk his daughter down the aisle.
