Kate Middleton has been enjoying a certain level of privacy even though she’s technically considered a public figure. Even though she represents Queen Elizabeth and supports Prince William, Middleton is still able to keep certain aspects of her life private. For instance, royal fans only get information about Middleton’s children from her or Prince William, and they rarely share photos to commemorate special occasions.

But in 2011, Kate Middleton and Prince William were busy preparing for their royal wedding. Even though the gathering was intended as a public event with hundreds of guests invited by the couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still wanted some aspects to be a surprise.

Kate Middleton Cried After Her Wedding Dress Designer’s Name Was Exposed

Royal author Katie Nicholl detailed the incident on the Dynasty podcast and said that Middleton was upset after The Sunday Times revealed that Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton was designing her wedding gown.

“The secrecy surrounding it … I remember trying so hard to find out who the designer was — every journalist on the planet was. And I think hats off to The Sunday Times who revealed it was Sarah Burton for McQueen ahead of the big day, which apparently had Kate in tears behind the scenes, which perhaps hints at some of the stress that she went through in the run-up to the royal wedding. On the day itself, it didn’t really matter. [Kate] stepped out of the car and she looked absolutely beautiful,” Nicholl said (via Cheat Sheet).

Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen Gown Stunned Royal Fans

Middleton surely rocked her stunning wedding gown. And the one-of-a-kind piece was put on display for the public to see. In fact, the gown was so special because it boasts of handcrafted lace applique and a Victorian-inspired bodice.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s veil also stood out because it was nine feet long.

Following the ceremony, Middleton changed into a second wedding dress for her reception. The clothing was also designed by Burton.

Kensington Palace also released a statement explaining why Middleton decided to team up with Burton for her wedding attire.

“Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing. Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen’s work,” the statement read (via Town & Country).
