Royal fans around the world can’t wait to see the wedding dress Meghan Markle will wear when she marries Prince Harry.

But one person who won’t have to wait is the Queen.

Her Majesty is expected to see the gown ahead of the big day so she can give it her personal seal of approval.

It’s believed she also saw the Duchess Of Cambridge’s Alexander McQueen gown ahead of her wedding to Prince William in 2011.

Meghan’s dress is tipped to have been designed by Ralph & Russo, after she favoured the designers in her choice of outfit for her official engagement shoot with Prince Harry.

Her wedding gown is reported to have cost £100,000, with the Suits actress believed to be paying for it herself.

US Weekly’s royal correspondent Omid Scobie reported this week that the dress has already been delivered to Windsor Castle, ahead of the big day on Saturday, 19 May.

He tweeted: “Sources confirm that Meghan’s wedding dress is finished and safely hidden at Windsor Castle until the big day.

“Just one person left to see it – the Queen. Meghan will privately show the gown to HM later this week (just like Kate did before she married William).”

Emily Andrews, The Sun’s royal correspondent, also confirmed the news on Wednesday’s Lorraine.

She said: “The Queen’s going to be seeing a sneak peek of Meghan’s dress. The Queen has to approve it beforehand.”

“What if she doesn’t like it? Can you imagine!” exclaimed host Lorraine Kelly.

Meghan, 36, previously hinted at her bridal style in an interview with Glamour.

She said: “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.

“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.”

Just like Kate on her wedding day, Meghan is expected to wear more than one dress.

It’s thought she’ll change into a gown that is less formal for the evening reception at Frogmore House so she can feel more comfortable when she eats and dances.
