The fashion designers in the running to create Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress

The royal family certainly have a busy calendar this year with two weddings to plan and look forward to.

The Duke and Duchess of York’s youngest daughter Princess Eugenie announced her engagement to long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank in January.

The happy couple showed off the padparadscha sapphire ring and Eugenie wore a £1,288 floral embroidered cap sleeve ‘Hetty’ dress by British label Erdem with black satin heels from Jimmy Choo for the official portraits.

The pair will wed on October 12 at the same venue as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

But one of the biggest questions on our lips is which lucky fashion designer will create the royal bride-to-be’s wedding dress for her big day?

Here are our predictions.

Erdem

The British label is one of the most sought-after names in the world at the moment and is also hotly-tipped to be behind Meghan Markle’s wedding dress . But was Eugenie giving us a clue that she’d already chosen her designer in her official engagement photos?

Vivienne Westwood

The iconic British designer said at the time of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding: "I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton but I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style.” Ouch. But she seems to have a fan in Eugenie, who actually wore a blue floral dress by Westwood for the royal wedding in 2011. Our favourite has to be the rather sexy red off-the-shoulder she wore to Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara ball the same year. Westwood looks to be a high contender.

Lindka Cierach

Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring is strikingly similar to her mother Sarah Ferguson’s. Lindka Cierach was the couturier behind the Duchess of York’s ivory duchesse satin and beaded wedding dress in 1986, so could she also be designing for another royal wedding?

Alice Temperley

The British designer is a favourite among the royal family and we reckon her vintage-inspired dresses would look amazing on Eugenie for her big day.

Alberta Ferretti

Princess Eugenie stunned the world when she appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. She wore her Erdem ‘Hetty’ engagement frock for one of the photos but it was the blush pink tulle Alberta Ferretti number that really wowed us.

Jenny Packham

Jenny Packham unveiled her bridal collection in London for the first time in years to celebrate the label’s 30th anniversary (the British designer usually showcases in New York) so could this be the biggest hint yet that something huge is on the cards for them this year?

Oscar de la Renta

The fashion house has designed wedding dresses for some of the most high profile brides, including Amal Clooney, so a royal wedding would be the icing on cake. Eugenie wore a fun paint-splattered dress by the label for the annual Easter Service at their wedding venue, St George’s Chapel.

Suzannah

The bride-to-be and her sister Beatrice are fans of the British tailor and they’ve worn many of her pieces over the years, such as Eugenie’s purple cowl-neck dress (above). Might she pick one of Suzannah’s elegant and classic designs?

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi

Eugenie and the Duchess of Cambridge have both worn creations by the British duo, including this red fit-and-flare number for Ascot. She knows that this style suits her shape and this makes the brand a perfect match for her.

Paule Ka

Traditionally British royal brides have chosen homegrown designers but could Eugenie go rogue and opt for French fashion label Paule Ka? She wore one of her dresses to Pippa Middleton’s wedding last year.
