Kate Middleton had a SECOND wedding dress and it was just as stunning as her first one

But it turns out the Duchess of Cambridge wore a SECOND wedding dress on the big day that not many people were aware of, and it is just as captivating as the first.

After the ceremony, the stunning bride ditched her elaborate, lace gown and changed into a romantic, ivory satin wonder with a furry stole.

The sensational dress was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen but featured a much simpler, but equally stunning, design.

It featured a flattering sweetheart neckline and gorgeous train, and was worn for an intimate evening celebration with her nearest and dearest at Buckingham Palace.

And there was even a bit more bling on the evening alternative, with the addition of a bedazzling diamanté waistline that accentuated her trim waist.


The stunning Duchess literally let her hair down for the evening do, unpinning her hair from its elegant ceremony style to showcase her trademark bouncy locks.

The royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton took place on April 29, 2011, and was declared a public holiday in the UK.

Since William isn't the first in line to the throne, the wedding was not a full state occasion, which meant many details of the big day were left down to the happy couple.

But the occasion, watched live by 36 million people, was jam-packed with all the usual pomp and ceremony of a royal occasion regardless.


The wedding came a decade after the pair met, with Wills and Kate having first crossed paths back at uni in 2001.

Both students at St Andrews, the royal couple got on like a house on fire during their student days, and coupled up in 2003.

The engagement came seven years later in October 2010, sparking mass excitement all over the world at the prospect of a royal wedding.

 

Some have spectulated that Meghan Markle will follow in Kate's footsteps and also have two gowns during her wedding to Prince Harry.

Emma Boycott, the owner of luxury wedding dress designs Maria Modes, told the Express.co.uk: “I do think it’s likely that she will follow in Kate’s footsteps and have a second wedding dress for the private celebrations later in the day.

“This will allow her to relax and wear something that is truly her.

“Meghan also has to take into account past royal wedding dress designs, most notably Kate Middleton’s, our future Queen, who she wouldn’t want to look like she was emulating or over staging so she will be mindful of ensuring her design is not too similar or as grand.”

No news has been released yet of the designer of Meghan’s dress, but bookies been listing their odds ahead of the big day.

Here are the latest odds on which designer will be given the honour of creating her gown. 

Meanwhile Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney has recently jetted in to help the royal bride-to-be with final wedding plans.
