Miss Catherine Middleton’s Wedding Gown Details

On December 17, 2010, a writer from the Huffington Post announced that she knows who will design Miss Catherine Middleton’s wedding gown.

Of course, the writer refused to give intimate details; however, she did give us a hint as to whom the designer may be.  She notes:

Catherine has gone for a young, ‘little-known’, British designer. When the name is officially announced, it will come as a surprise to many, and catapult the designer to worldwide fame. For clues on the identity, I suggest looking at those who have made dresses for Catherine, her sister Pippa, and her mother Carole.

To ensure the tightest security, and to prevent leaks over the actual design, Catherine’s dress is already being made inside the palace.

How the writer uncovered such valuable information is incomprehensible to many royal watchers, and I should say that many in the community are doubting her claims. However, I actually believe that she does know who the designer is and what the sketches of the dress looks like.

Why?  Why do I believe her?

Well, during her time on a known message board the writer was sent to Sweden, by the Huffington Post, to cover HRH Crown Princess Victoria’s wedding.  Members of the known message board were privy to detailed behind the scenes information about the wedding that were reported by other journalists days later (did that make any sense?)

So yeah… I believe her.   Sure, many thought she was a pain-in-the-ass on the known message board (not me, though.  We got along quite well), but the writer gave us amazing inside information about the Swedish royal wedding and the guests who attended.

Well done Huffington Post writer   🙂
