After months of anticipation, we finally know who Meghan chose to design her wedding dress: British designer Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy. The French fashion house revealed the once top-secret news in the following statement via Twitter:

MarieClaire.com's exclusive royal wedding expert Caroline Castigliano predicted that Meghan would choose a British designer (and she did, sort of). It was originally reported that Ralph & Russo and Erdem were top contenders, but Meghan chose a French fashion house led by a British designer to create her boatneck style gown instead. Her sister-in-law Kate Middleton chose Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen when she married Prince William in 2011.

Castigliano predicts that Meghan has chosen an American designer for the second dress she'll wear during the evening reception at Frogmore House that's hosted by Prince Harry's father, Prince Charles.

"For the evening party, I'm sure she'll change into something that's much more her personal style," says Castigliano. "For that, I think it would be really nice if she wore an American designer."
