After seeing several samples from top fashion brands, it is believed that Markle had finally taken her pick among the designers for her wedding dress.
It is speculated that the final contenders were Ralph & Russo, Erdem, Alexander McQueen and Stewart Parvin. While Ralph & Russo designed the black and green dress worn by Markle on the day of the royal engagement.
