Has Kate Middleton chosen her wedding dress designer?

Early indications suggest that the bride-to-be has selected Bruce Oldfield to create the one-of-a-kind gown

Ever since Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement, we’ve been dying to find out which designer name the bride-to-be would turn to for that all important gown…

With her engagement dress designer Issa a widely suspected choice, there were also whispers surrounding classic bridal brand Phillipa Lepley, and Princess Diana’s wedding gown creator Elizabeth Emanuel.

But now early indications suggest that the bride-to-be has in fact selected British couturier Bruce Oldfield to create the one-of-a-kind gown.

Bookmaker Paddy Power has received so many wagers on Bruce Oldfield to design the royal dress, that it has suspended betting – suspecting that the surge in bets originated from an insider leak.

‘We suspended betting on November 26,’ says a spokesperson from Paddy Power. ‘We were receiving one-way traffic for Bruce Oldfield and there is no point taking bets when all the interest is in one person.’

‘He started as a 4/1 joint favourite, but since then the odds have been slashed to 1/3. That would mean there is a 75% chance of him being the wedding dress designer.’

‘Sometimes this kind of betting comes from people taking an educated guess, but sometimes it is the result of a leak,’ they continued.

‘We were taking bets of £500 or more so it could be a leak.’

Bruce Oldfield has previously designed bridal gowns for Samantha Cameron and Jemima Khan, as well as red carpet pieces for Rihanna and Sienna Miller. He was also a favourite of Princess Diana.

Of course, it has yet to be confirmed, but it’s the strongest indication yet that Kate has made her decision.

We guess we’ll have to wait until April 29th to find out!
