According to Vanity Fair, the duchess-in-waiting will don a traditional gown for the ceremony held at St George’s Chapel before slipping into something more fashion-forward for the evening’s celebrations at Frogmore House.
A royal source told the publication: “She will have two dresses, one for the ceremony and another dress for the evening. The plan is for her to change after the ceremony so she can party the night away in something less restrictive. Meghan can’t wait to surprise everyone, especially Harry.”
But she won’t be the first royal to have invested in a second wedding dress. Future sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, donned two Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen numbers at her 2011 nuptials.
And Meghan may even go so far as to emulate the 36-year-old on her big day, as Katie Nicholl, author of Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, told Yahoo Style UK: “Apparently she wants lace incorporated in the design and possibly sleeves of some sort which suggest she’s steering away from anything too slinky and going for something more conservative which would be fitting of the occasion.”
