ROYAL bride-to-be Meghan Markle has chosen a £100,000 designer gown, according to reports.

The Canadian actress is said to have commissioned British design duo Ralph & Russo to create her dream dress, ready for her wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.

Sources suggest the gown, which will be one of two worn on the day, is expected to be heavily beaded and adorned with hand-stitched details which the brand is well-known for.

Despite the eye-watering price tag, it will be less than half the cost of Kate Middleton’s £250,000 Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress.

Rachel Lawler, of leading wedding magazine The Scottish Wedding Directory, said there may be more surprises to come with Meghan’s outfit, adding: “With the dress rumoured to be costing around £100,000, it suggests a lot of labour-intensive detailing.

“With Ralph & Russo known for their stand-out designs, I don’t think it would be surprising if Meghan opted for a very on-trend embellished cape to complete her wedding day look.

“While Kate has always gone for a conservative style, Meghan takes more of a risk, keeping things classic but with a subtle nod to her individuality – something I think will be evident in her wedding dress design, too.”
