Meghan Markle accused of copying Danish princess's wedding dress style with "familiar gown"
When Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex stepped out of the vehicle showing off her simple yet elegant dress, people thought that the royal bride was setting a trend. However, it happens that this is not true. According to Allison Langdon, Channel Nine presenter, the dress is a lot like the one which was worn by the Danish royal at her wedding.
Allison noted that the boat-neck gown seemed to look 'familiar' and would not be setting any "trends" as people thought it is. She compared Meghan's dress to Princess Mary's wedding dress which she wore in her 2004 wedding to Prince Frederik.
Sitting alongside TV buff Kerri Elstub, Allison spoke about the resemblance. "I think it was probably Meghan's version of Hollywood meets the history of the British family. Ali, it was your comment when watching it that the dress seemed familiar..." Kerri said during their segment.
Allison did not hold back in reminding people that a similar dress has been worn before. "It was Princess Mary. My first thought was that we had seen the dress before. I don't think she'll be setting wedding trends," she noted. Princess Mary chose to wear an ivory gown during her wedding while Meghan went with white.
Mary's dress was designed by Danish fashion designer Uffe Frank. The dress, which was made of duchess satin, featured a 19ft train. The look was completed with antique lace veil once worn by Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden. "I think she did copy Princess Mary. It looked stunning on her but she went with pure white," Allison said.
"A lot of people thought she might go with an ivory number since this was not her first wedding," she continued. At the same time, she went on and claimed that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear an attire she had previously worn twice. "She has worn that outfit twice before. To Charlotte's Christening and to the Queen's birthday," she noted. "She looks amazing but Twitter is having the conversation about the fact that this is the third time Kate has been seen in the outfit."
Allison remarked how it would have been nice if Kate had worn a new dress for the occasion. "Considering who it was getting married and the importance of it, she maybe could have splurged a bit on a new outfit for today," she said. However, there were others who thought that both Meghan and Kate looked breathtaking in their respective outfits.
