The news that everyone has been speculating for months has finally been confirmed: Meghan Markle’s wedding dress is by Givenchy. The dress was revealed as the Duchess of Sussex made her way up the steps to Windsor Castle.

The gown was designed by Givenchy’s creative director, Claire Waight Keller, a British designer who used to helm the fashion house Chloé.

In a statement on Twitter, Kensington Palace said: "Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy."

The dress is a simple silhouette, with a boatneck neckline, long sleeves and a decadent veil and train that’s longer than her actual hemline. The veil represents all 53 countries of the Commonwealth and features a distinctive floral composition for each country.



“The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893,” tweets Kensington Palace.
