What will Meghan Markle's wedding dress be like? That's the question everyone in fashion, royal and society circles is asking right now.

In an interview with Glamour in March 2016 about the wedding dress for Rachel Zane, her character in Suits, the soon-to-be royal was asked what her dream wedding dress is. "I have the luxury of wearing beautiful pieces of clothing every day for work, so my personal style—wedding or not—is very pared down and relaxed," she revealed. "Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist. I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic. Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos are faves of mine for their uniqueness and beauty. And I will always be a fan of Ellie Saab. J. Mendel is spectacular as well, especially for more structural designs."

While Meghan Markle will be able to wear something slightly less formal than the Duchess of Cambridge, it is important to remember that this is still a royal wedding, so she will still have to honour traditions and not wear anything too radical. This is reflected in the formal manner in which the palace announced the engagement, releasing a statement from her parents.

Meghan will wear something custom, however, the question will be whether she opts for a British or American designer. The royal family often dresses diplomatically, and so she will either commission a British designer like Kate did with Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen or she will opt for an all-American designer like Oscar de la Renta.
