Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamt of marrying a prince one day and to become a princess. This could be the beginning of a fairytale by the Grimm brothers. But not only. Today, it could also be the beginning of Meghan Markle’s autobiography or biopic. The 36-year old actress and Prince Harry will tie the knot on May 19, 2018. The royal wedding will be followed by hundreds of millions of television viewers all around the world. Kensington Palace has confirmed a few facts in the last four weeks, while tabloids are speculating about all the rest: Meghan’s hairstyle, Meghan’s make-up, the wedding rings, the guest list, the bridesmaids, and, most important of all, Meghan’s wedding gown. Obviously, no pictures will be published before the wedding day, but it has been confirmed that the British couture house Ralph&Russo has already designed the bridal gown for the new British royal. If you’ve never heard of this couture brand, let us show you what Meghan Markle’s wedding dress by Ralph&Russo could look like.
