The official news is still a bit sketchy, but all fashion predictions point to Sophia Cranston as Royal Wedding Dress Designer. Buckingham Palace has manged to keep this a secret until our trusty news pioneers over at the Huff Post broke the news or at least what they claim to be breaking news.
According to the site, Cranston was hired months ago, but Buckingham Palace required that her identity remain a secret to keep the press away from the designer, her staff, and her family so she could complete the gown without additional pressure and distractions.
