Still, royal watchers around the world have been waiting for a hint about the bride’s choice.
As revealed exclusively in a Huffington Post report, the wedding gown designer isn’t Bruce Oldfield or Sarah Burton. In fact, an inside source has identified 34-year-old Sophie Cranston as the lucky woman (and relatively unknown fashion pro) who received the royal assignment of a lifetime.
Cranston, of the Libélula label, has apparently been working for months in secrecy on the gown, now reportedly near completion. Why has her identity been protected so fiercely? Allegedly, insiders hoped to shield Cranston’s family and associates from unwanted media scrutiny, and allow the designer a period of uninterrupted concentration on her task: perfecting Middleton’s dream dress.
Early in her career, Cranston won a prestigious ‘Designer of the Year’ student award during London’s Graduate Fashion Week in 1999. The U.K.-born designer then mastered her craft while working under the late British legend Alexander McQueen.
Today, famous clients of Cranston’s include Piers Morgan‘s wife, Celia Warden, as well as model Jerry Hall and ‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson — who recently expressed sympathy for Middleton, because of the paparazzi circus that will only intensify after Prince William’s fiance says “I do.”
