Time for some throwback news from Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal wedding! While this event seems like literally decades ago and I’ve aged approximately 84 years since, some tea was just spilled about Kate crying over a press leak.
Basically, the identity of Kate’s wedding dress designer was a secret that the palace managed to keep on lock, but it ended up being leaked to the press in March—a little over a month before the royal wedding.
The Sunday Times published news that Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton designed Kate’s gown, and the Duchess was so dismayed that she was brought to tears.
“Behind the scenes I think that caused tears at the Palace because Kate had done everything she could to keep the wedding dress a secret,” royal reporter Katie Nicholl said in the documentary Secrets of the Royal Dressmakers (via the Mirror).
After the news leaked, Burton straight-up denied being involved in the wedding dress design, while Clarence House released a statement saying “We’re not commenting on the specific designer for the dress because Catherine Middleton wishes to keep the designer a secret until the wedding day.”
Bummer for Kate, but obviously it all worked out in the end! Please see: her insanely chic royal wedding as proof.
