Bruce Oldfield Says He Isn’t Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress Designer

Even now, the designer behind Kate Middleton’s royal wedding dress remains a mystery. Bruce Oldfield, a British designer, said on Thursday that he has not designed Kate’s gown on the big day.

Several names have been specified. Yet, no one has confirmed that they have actually designed Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.

This month, Oldfield’s name rose as the top bets to create the royal dress. However, he has closed the deal one day before the wedding and announced in a released statement that he has not created Kate’s most-awaited wedding dress.

Oldfield previously designed and created Jemima Khan and Samantha Cameron’s bridal gowns. He also made red carpet gowns for Sienna Miller and Rihanna.

The designer said he, as well, is curious to see Middleton’s choice of design. Also, he said Kate will surely look spectacular as she has a beautiful figure and knows what suits her well.

Kate Middleton’s wedding dress has been filled with months of speculations. Last week, Sophie Cranston’s name rose, but she has ruled herself out as well. The designer said Kate would definitely not wear one of her creations as she walks down the Abbey’s aisle.

Yet, two of the favourites have already said they have not designed Kate’s bridal gown and nearly everyone has run out of ideas. It seems that the public has to wait a few more hours to find out the designer’s top-secret identity, or not.

Meanwhile, details for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding are all set. The newly-weds are expected to appear on the balcony at the Buckingham palace and seal a kiss in front of millions of viewers worldwide.

Royal Wedding Last-Minute Details

Just a few hours just before the most anticipated royal wedding, Kate Middleton along with her bridesmaids and best man Prince Harry rehearsed for the second time on Thursday at Westminster Abbey.

The wedding on Friday is expected to display elegance at top scale with royal carriages, as well as Household Calvary mounted troops. Union Jacks- the red, blue and white-colored flags of United Kingdom- covered the entire parade route. Meanwhile, pavements have been scrubbed with street cleaners.

The couples have invited 1,900 guests to their wedding. However, thousands are expected to gather around the parade route from the Westminster Abbey to the Buckingham palace after the ceremony on Friday. The church, as well, has been revamped into a beautiful forest. Two hornbeams and six field maples lined-up in the aisle to the altar.

Five thousand police officers are expected to go on duty on Friday. They will look out for protesters, anti-monarchists, hooligans and anti-monarchists who might ruin the royal event. Also, police patrols will be distributed around the area.

Other wedding details include: Kate Middleton will walk down the aisle with the hymn of “I was glad” from the Psalm 122. It is an anthem setting composed by Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry. Also, Middleton will say to “love, comfort, honor and keep” him, instead of her promise to “obey” her husband in the wedding vows.

Yet, Prince William and Kate Middleton, in their message in the wedding program, say they were deeply touched with the affection everyone has showed them.

It appears that Prince William and Kate Middleton will have two Royal Breakfasts after the wedding.

The Queen will also host a Royal Breakfast for the newly-weds in their honor. This will be served right after the wedding ceremony on Friday at Westminster Abbey while Prince Harry’s royal wedding breakfast will be served in the morning, and it will signal the end of the celebration.

Prince Harry has asked a DJ to play in the early hours of the party. Thus, guests who will stay up all night will be served with a royal wedding breakfast. According to ABC News, Prince Harry ordered the caterers to serve bacon sandwiches, as well as “fry-ups” for the guests.

Prince William and Kate to Wed in Westminster Abbey

Price William Wedding - Westminster AbbyIn April, when Prince William and Kate Middleton perform their wedding rites in the Westminster Abbey, they will also participate in a tradition of blue-bloods that has been observed for decades. All of Britain’s royalties have been crowned on these hollowed grounds since 1066 and most of them were wed there too.

The Gothic Church, one of United Kingdom’s finest, is also home to the remains of some of the world’s most important people – Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Charles Dickens. The structure of the church itself, rumored to be priced at £50,000, is already awe-inspiring with light going through the stained-glass windows and echoing corridors.

The Abbey is where you will find the historical Coronation Chair where all monarchs were crowned starting in the 14th century. The chair is said to be 700 years old. Dr. Tony Trowles even said that the church is home to the widest and most beautiful collection of British sculptures.

The future king’s bride-to-be will walk down the aisle beneath the Gothic arches. She will walk pass tombs of past royalties and priceless medieval paintings. Serenading her will be a remarkable organ and choir.

Prince William’s secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton mentioned in his Clarence House statement that the couple chose the venue because of its timeless beauty and royal history. He also said that even though the church is huge, being in the high chair still exudes a wonderful feeling of intimacy.

Thousands of people visit the Westminster Abbey every day, and probably even more will visit it on the April 29th royal wedding. For Kate Middleton, however, the Abbey will be more than just a place where her wedding will take place; as this is also where her husband-to-be could be crowned the next King.
