The Queen Has To Approve This Before Each Royal Wedding
Share this article
Can you imagine if Kate Middleton hadn’t worn her iconic Alexander McQueen gown? Or if Meghan Markle didn’t walk down the aisle in her ivory Givenchy dress?
According to tradition, the Queen‘s approval is needed for all royal wedding dresses before the big day. This means Duchesses Kate and Meghan shared the designs of their gowns with her Majesty, or perhaps even brought her along to fittings.
At the time of Meghan and Harry’s wedding, it was rumoured that the Queen did not approve of Meghan’s white wedding gown, as she had been married before, however, the design was obviously approved.
The same rule would’ve also applied to newly-wed Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.
Queen Elizabeth II was ahead of her time with her bridal gown, designed by Norman Hartnell, as she overlooked the traditional white in favour of a golden blush colour.
The royals are known for their stunning choices in wedding gowns, and we’re looking forward to seeing Queen Elizabeth’s future approvals!
