The Royal Wedding's official photographs

Let's start with the sketches of the Royal Wedding Dress by Clare Waight Keller which epitomise a timeless minimal elegance. The pure white silk cady gown featured a graphic open bateau neckline, a flowing train and an underskirt in triple silk organza. That veil, wow, with embroidery representing the flora and fauna from around the commonwealth countries.

My favourite photos of today's Royal wedding

Thanks to all the photographers, mostly Getty images for keeping us informed. 

Givenchy do the stunning gown!

After weeks of speculation, Meghan Markle has emerged in a wedding gown designed by Clare Waight Keller.

The celebrity-packed wedding of Markle to Prince Harry is underway in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, where guests including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Carey Mulligan, Elton John, Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams and Markle's Suits co-stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick Adams, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty and more, have gathered to see American actress Markle marry Prince Harry after a worldwind romance that sparked its own Lifetime movie.

In a shocking turn, Markle turned to Waight Keller, the female artistic director of the French fashion house Givenchy since March 2017. Several other designers had been frontrunners to design the gown, including Stella McCartney and the British house of Ralph & Russo.

To 1,000 years of British and French rivalry, apparently, Markle said “pshaw.” Well, sort of. Although Waight Keller is currently at Givenchy, and before that was at French house Chloe, she is a native Brit who studied for her BA at Ravensbourne College of Art. She gained her Masters in Fashion Knitwear at the Royal College of Art.

She also spent time in the U.S., at Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, and in the early 2000s relaunched the British heritage brand Pringle of Scotland, after a stint alongside Tom Ford at Gucci. So you might say, she’s about as global a designer as they come. And the house of Givenchy, of course, has a long Hollywood association. Its namesake, who died earlier this year, was closely associated with Audrey Hepburn.

It was a big deal when Waight Keller was appointed the first female artistic director of Givenchy, where she has been steering the house in a more rock n’ roll direction. Gal Gadot wore Waight Keller’s sparkly silver gown to the Oscars.
