We’re not experts on the fashion industry, but we can say with certainty that designing Meghan Markle’s royal wedding dress is one of the most important and sought after jobs a fashion designer could ever have.
Rumors of which designer will make the wedding gown abound. Vanity Fair reported that last week, people thought the designer would be Erdem, a British brand beloved by Kate Middleton, or Ralph & Russo, the brand responsible for designing Markle’s engagement outfit. This week, bets are on Alexander McQueen.
These rumors stem from Betfair, a betting website. Yes, the British like to bet on rumors, especially ones that relate to the royal family. They’re weird.
We previously had Ralph and Russo as the 2/1 [favorites] and there’s also been a lot of talk of Erdem as a big front-runner. However, we’ve now suspended this market after seeing some interesting betting on Alexander McQueen this morning who went from 16/1 to 8/1 in a very short space of time.

Kate Middleton wore an Alexander McQueen gown for her wedding, so it would make sense if Markle were to follow in her footsteps. Or maybe she’ll surprise us all with her decision in designer, going against royal traditions once more.
