WITH the announcement that we are having a royal wedding next year when Meghan Markle ties the knot with Prince Harry, speculation has turned to the dress.

But who will be tasked with the honour of creating the dress that is likely to be viewed by millions?

Who will design Meghan Markle’s wedding dress?

No news has been released yet of the designer of Meghan’s dress, but bookies have released their odds ahead of the big day.

French designer Roland Mouret is currently tipped to be the favourite by Betfair (13/2). 

This is followed by Alexander McQueen – the designer of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown – (7/1).

Also high for the odds are Toronto-based designer Mikhael Kane (9/1), Burberry (10/1), Emilia Wickstead (10/1) and Greta Constantine (11/1).

Betfair included Victoria Beckham in the list, with odds at 40/1.

Betway, meanwhile, has listed Elie Saab (7/2), Jenny Packham (6/1), Antonio Berardi (7/1), Lela Rose (15/2), Erdem (8/1), Oscar de la Renta (9/1), Bruce Oldfield (12/1), Sarah Burton (16/1), Burberry (28/1), David Emanuel (33/1), and Victoria Beckham (33/1).

Princess Diana’s wedding dress designer, David Emanuel, said he would be thrilled to design Meghan’s gown and predicted she will wear a form-fitting dress to go down the aisle.

He said on the Lorraine show back in May: “That’s the one I want if I could get my hands on it.

“She’s a little sex bomb, beautiful figure. I love her in the American show they put her in classic clean lines – crisp shirts and fabulous shaped skirts. She looks hot!”

Or could it be designer Misha Nonoo, who set the pair up on a blind date?

We’ve already seen Meghan looking stunning in a wedding dress, when her character Rachel Zane on Suits got dressed up in a gown for her wedding to Mike.

The Suits’ actress was dressed in a traditional white wedding dress with lace detailing and sparkles, so will she deviate from this incredible look?

What was Kate Middleton’s wedding dress?

The wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2011 was one of the most watched ceremonies in history – and her spectacular Alexander McQueen v-neck dress stole the show.

She wore a long-sleeved lace gown that later went on display at Buckingham Palace during a summer exhibition.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore a second wedding dress on the big day that not many people were aware of, and it is just as captivating as the first.

After the ceremony the stunning bride ditched her elaborate, lace gown and changed into a romantic, ivory satin wonder.

The sensational dress was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen but featured a much simpler, but equally stunning design.

When are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting married?

The highly-anticipated wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take place next spring in May.

Currently the exact date hasn’t been revealed.

The couple will tie the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, which is where Harry was christened when he was three months old.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: “Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel.

“The Royal Family will pay for the wedding.”

It has been announced that they will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

What is the team news?

CITY skipper Vincent Kompany left the derby at half-time and looks set to miss more time.

Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala are the only fit centre-half’s still available to Guardiola, who has John Stones out.

Swansea picked up no injuries during the West Brom win, as Kyle Bartley remains their only player unavailable.

Stat attack

  • Swansea City have won just one of their last 15 games in all competitions against Man City (D2 L12), beating them 1-0 in March 2012.
  • Manchester City have won 75% of their Premier League games against Swansea (9/12), their best win rate against a specific opponent they’ve faced more than five times in the competition.
  • The first two Premier League meetings between these sides at the Liberty Stadium produced just one goal – the subsequent four have seen both sides score each time, producing a total of 17 goals (4.3 per game).
  • Manchester City have won their last 14 Premier League games in a row. This is the English top-flight record within a single season.
  • Manchester City’s next aim is to win their 15 th successive top-flight league game in a row, which would be the most ever in England, beating Arsenal’s 14-game run between February and August 2002.
  • Manchester City have won 46 points after 16 games this season – that points tally would have been enough to secure 8 th position in the Premier League at the end of 2016-17.
  • Swansea have the exact same record after 16 games this season as they did in 2016-17 – W3 D3 L10, winning 12 points. However, at this stage last season 54 goals had been scored in their matches while they have only seen 27 this season – half the tally.
  • Kevin De Bruyne has assisted 17 goals in the Premier League in 2017 – the only players with more within a single Premier League calendar year are Mesut Ozil (20 in 2015) and Thierry Henry (19 in 2003).
  • Wilfried Bony has scored in his last two Premier League games & will be looking to score in three in a row for the first time since October 2014. The Ivorian scored just six goals in 36 Premier League appearances for Manchester City before re-joining Swansea in August.
  • Yaya Toure has been involved in more Premier League goals against Swansea than he has versus any other opponent in the competition (seven; four goals, three assists).
