However, the idea and information of the designer was leaked by a media outlet and, of course, this was not what she had wanted.

Her fabulous wedding dress was designed by an English designer named Sarah Burton, creative director of the luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen.

"Behind the scenes, I think that caused tears at the palace because Kate had done everything she could to keep the wedding dress a secret," royal expert Katie Nicholls said in documentary ’Secrets of the Royal Dressmakers’.

Prince William’s sweetheart had hoped to keep the designer’s name quiet until the wedding, the publication even wrote in their piece at the time while blowing the secret. Kate’s wedding dress was widely anticipated and generated much comment in the media.

The designer wasn’t supposed to be formally announced until Kate made her way to the Westminster Abbey prior to the service, from the wedding car.

But British newspaper The Sunday Times broke the news about two months before the nuptials. "[Burton] was selected by Middleton, who is making increasing efforts to develop her own style, on grounds of her quirky elegance, discretion and low profile," the article read.

Kate Middleton tried everything at the time to keep her wedding gown a secret. It was then that she shed a few tears after she found out that the details of the gown had been revealed.
