These Sketches *Could* Be Our First Look at Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress

The world has been hit with a serious case of Royal Wedding Fever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement at the end of November.

Dror's designs are nothing short of stunning, but we're wondering how the glamorous lace and over the top trains fit into the bride's idea of her dream wedding dress.

Kate Middleton's big day to Prince William was on a much grander scale than to what Harry and Markle are planning, with their wedding scheduled to take place in the more intimate St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

According to People, Israeli designer Inbal Dror was asked to submit a sketch for Markle's potential wedding gown. TMZ said that Dror "confirmed Monday she was contacted by the Royal family", while Business Insider maintains that a spokesperson declined that the palace approached them and that "we have been responding to an initiative of the Bridal Council".

The fact that these sketches were leaked points to the improbability that Inbal Dror would be chosen to design Markle's dress. They depict tightly fitted bodices, high-neck Victorian collars and boudoir-inspired lace insets; it's hard to imagine Markle wearing a dress with so much frou-frou. "If we get ourselves into, "She's marrying a British royal so she has to wear British" then we're isolating ourselves". Her dresses typically tend to sell for between $US8,000 and $US10,000, although it's hard to estimate how much a bespoke bridal gown for the royal wedding would cost. After all, the 36-year-old has alluded to preferring simple, timeless wedding gowns, citing Carolyn Bessette's simple slip dress as "everything goals". Not only does it have an A-line design with a skirt that flows from the hips, but it also has elegant long sleeves.
