There’s another label in the running for the most coveted job of 2018. Joining the ranks of Erdem and Ralph and Russo, Burberry is the latest name tipped to be behind Meghan Markle‘s wedding dress.

In an interview with the podcast Wedding Guest Extraordinaire, designer Henry Holland voiced his predictions ahead of the royal wedding.

“I personally really hope it’s somebody British,” the House of Holland designer admitted. “I would be quite excited if it was Christopher Bailey’s final bow for Burberry. I think that would be a nice thing for him to do, she’s worn for them for a long time.”

“Christopher’s a lovely, lovely guy,” he added. “I think a Burberry wedding dress would be pretty spot-on.”

Bailey recently stepped down from the British label after 17 years at the helm, and his February collection marked the end of an era. But as Holland points out, what better way to give a “final bow” than by taking on this history-making project?

Bailey is reportedly staying at the fashion house until the end of the year, when Riccardo Tisci, former head designer over at Givenchy, will take over.

And it would not be entirely surprising if Holland’s prediction turns out to be correct.

Markle has looked to Burberry for numerous public engagements. Most notably, the 36-year-old donned a tartan check coat by the label for her debut trip to Edinburgh. The former actress has also hit up the brand for several red carpet appearances throughout her Hollywood career.

Holland added that he doesn’t believe frontrunner Erdem Moralıoğlu is the man behind the job, despite the loyalty that Kate Middleton, Markle’s future sister-in-law, has shown to his designs.

Holland also said Giles Deacon, who designed Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress, confirmed to him that he is not doing Markle’s dress. That’s another name crossed off the list.

But no matter how much we may enjoy speculating, there’s one person who doesn’t want to know any dress details.

According to sourcesPrince Harry is “very traditional and wants it to be a complete surprise on the day.”
