Kate Middleton’s dress was made by British house under the creative leadership of .

The bride-to-be may have made a clever nod to her future as Queen of the United Kingdom.

Marrying the heir to the throne of Britain is no minor event, and Kate’s dress was perfectly fitting for the occasion.

It is said to have cost a rather pricey £250,000, and a part of this cost covered the stunning lace details made in Nottingham.

Kate is reported to have had a number of floral designs on her dress, which nodded to all four countries in the United Kingdom.

The lace effect was inspired by the Limerick and Carrickmacross laces of Ireland.

Roses and shamrock have been spotted on the bodice of the dress, roses representing England and Shamrocks Ireland.

Some experts have claimed the dress also sported lace daffodils and thistles, nodding to Wales and Scotland.

If this was a nod by Kate and her designers, it would certainly be fitting for the future Queen.

Meghan Markle’s enormous cathedral veil for her day had a similar theme, but took the motif even further, across the globe.

It was decorated with 53 flowers from all over the Commonwealth. These included white orchids from Gambia, jasmine from Pakistan, kowhai from New Zealand and heilala from Tonga.

This design hinted at Meghan’s future role with the Royal Family, as it was announced she and Harry would represent the UK among the countries of the Commonwealth.

It was recently announced that Meghan has become vice-president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

It is not known if Meghan was inspired by Kate’s dress to include this detail in her own gown.

Meghan Markle topped off her outfit with the Queen Mary’s Lozenge Bandeau tiara. 

Kensington Palace confirmed the tiara is the Queen Mary’s Lozenge Bandeau tiara, and tweeted: “The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen.

“The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entire brooch dating from 1893.”

Kate Middleton’s tiara, on the other hand, was the Cartier Halo tiara.

Lady Gabriella Windsor’s is coming up this season. However, an expert has suggested it will be very different to Meghan and Kate’s.

Bernadette Chapman, Founder of The UK Alliance of Planners and Business Coach told Express.co.uk: “Looking at both Lady Gabriella and her fiancé it is my opinion they will opt for a very classical and understated .

“I don't see this as being ostentatious, on the contrary I see the design as more a timeless affair.”
