The question on every fan's mind as Princess Eugenie's wedding approaches is, of course, what the royal bride will wear on her big day - but royal watchers are also excitedly awaiting a first glimpse of Kate and Meghan in their wedding guest attire. The odds at Ladbrokes are favouring Montreal native Erdem Morialoglu for the Queen's granddaughter as she says "I do" to Jack Brooksbank on Oct. 12. As for the duchesses, they could very likely turn to their own wedding gown designers to see them through the festivities.
The Duchess of Cambridge has proven time and again that for special occasions she's all about Alexander McQueen. Creative Director Sarah Burton was the mastermind behind her timeless wedding gown and has seen her through milestone moments like the christenings of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, not to mention Prince Harry and Meghan's nuptials this past May and her sister Pippa's big day in 2017.
When it comes to her wedding guest style, the mother of three is all about the coat dress, sometimes in a pretty pastel hue and other times in a bolder colour or with a texture to the fabric. Often times she'll shop her own closet for a recycled look. For the recent nuptials of her close friend Sophie Carter, Kate wore a cornflower blue coat dress by Catherine Walker with matching pumps and a stunning new accessory: an oversized floral crown by Juliette Botterill. This is the second show-stopping headband the 36-year-old has worn of late, opting for a cream Jane Taylor headband embellished with flowers for Prince Louis' christening, so she could make it a hat trick come Friday!
Meghan, on the other hand, has made Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy her go-to gal. From her strikingly simple wedding gown to a white shirtdress at Royal Ascot, caped beige design for her first outing with the Queen and a textured black number with sheered sleeves for the duchess's first-ever solo engagement, the French fashion house has never led her astray.
But while the former actress shined in Givenchy on her wedding day, she's never worn the label as a guest since becoming a member of the Royal Family. To watch Prince Harry's cousin Celia McCorquodale tie the knot to George Woodhouse in June, Meghan slipped into a loose-fitting, blue and white Oscar de la Renta gown (with a price tag of more than $7000!), which she paired with a white fascinator pushed to one side. Then, in August, the Duchess of Sussex dazzled in the $328 Club Monaco Shoanah Dress, which pairs a sleeveless collared blouse with a pleated, multi-coloured midi skirt. This time, she topped off her look with a black Philip Treacy hat with wisps of coiled ribbon. So it remains to be seen whether Givenchy tops off the summer's trifecta of stylish wedding-guest ensembles.
Princess Eugenie has remained mum about her own bridal look, though she did give one hint. “I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer,” she revealed to British Vogue. “[The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.” We can't wait to see all three royals dressed to impress in Windsor!
