The internationally-recognised designer was asked by bridalwear brand Ronald Joyce to dream up two gowns similar to those Princess Eugenie may have chosen, based on the gowns she typically wears to formal occasions.

As for material, the designer told us: “I predict a Mikado fabric, which gives a lot of structure to the dress – as we have seen Eugenie is very structured pieces before, like at William and Kate’s wedding – or elegant duchess satin with beaded motifs.”

The princess did reveal back in January that she had not yet chosen a dress, other than insisting she wouldn’t be wearing “meringue shoulders”.

She also told British Vogue in September that she has opted for a British designer. “I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer.”

“[The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about,” she told the magazine. “As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away.

“I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.”

The Queen has a say when it comes to the dress, too, but as a courtesy rather than a necessity. Meghan Markle’s Givenchy gown was also given the go-ahead by the 92-year-old monarch in May, as was Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen dress back in 2011.

Princess Eugenie has further hinted that the wedding day will be ‘plastic free’, revealing in British Vogue that her “whole house is anti-plastic now. And Jack and I want our wedding to be like that as well.”
