Royal wedding: Will Meghan Markle have a second dress like Kate Middleton?

MEGHAN Markle will have the eyes of the world on her when she weds Prince Harry in May and the wedding dress she wears to St George’s Chapel will no doubt be a stunning choice. But could she wear a different dress in the evening like Kate did?

It is understood Meghan Markle will wear two wedding dresses at her upcoming wedding to Prince Harry in May, a source recently revealed to Vanity Fair.

The actress will be following in the footsteps of the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore two dresses on her big day back in April 2011, both by the same designer.

Kate wore a classic and traditonal gown to the service at Westminster Abbey, designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen with a full-length train, and stunning lace veil and then slipped into something simpler for the evening.

The evening white satin dress still had a traditional shape, with a sweetheart neckline and jewel-encrusted belt for the meal at Buckingham Palace, which was less restrictive and easier to greet guests in, compared to her 9ft train.

Caroline Castigliano, a bespoke wedding dress designer, believes Meghan will wear something more revealing for the evening, to reflect her personality.

She said: “I think Meghan will wear something that is much more revealing, much more sensual in the evening, maybe a full beaded dress that she will party the night away.

“It may be low cut at the front, low cut at the back, spaghetti straps, very sparkly, something that will be her wow number for her and Harry.”

Caroline believes Meghan will choose a British designer for the main wedding dress out of respect for the royal family, but could opt for an American designer for the evening dress.

She said: “If she wears a different designer it might be for the evening party where they have their 200 friends.

“I think that would be a perfect balance, between showing the respect for the family she is moving into and also bringing in her new life.

“It would stretch open the whole arena and bringing in an American designer or a friend she wants to promote.

“I think that would be a fabulous thing to do.”

Emma Boycott, the owner of luxury wedding dress designs Maria Modes, said: “I do think it’s likely that she will follow in Kate’s footsteps and have a second wedding dress for the private celebrations later in the day.

“This will allow her to relax and wear something that is truly her.”

Caroline told Express.co.uk Meghan will choose a wedding dress for the main service which is both respectful to the royal family but also reflects her personal style.
