Seven years on from her wedding day and the Duchess of Cambridge continues to rely on her bridal designer Alexander McQueen for high-profile occasions.
And it would appear her sister-in-law Meghan is set to forge a similar lasting relationship with Givenchy, the fashion house behind her own stunning wedding dress.
The Duchess of Sussex, 36, showed her loyalty to the French brand when she stepped out in a custom-made number for her first official joint engagement with the Queen in Cheshire on Thursday.

Speaking to FEMAIL, celebrity stylist Rochelle White explained it was important for designers to form relationships with high-profile clients like the royals.
She said: ‘Having a good relationships Is key and I think works in favour of the designer. The Royals are big fashion influencers and people relate to who and what they wear.

‘Designers know that, whereever a royal is seen or photographed is great for them and their designs.’
Miss White explained Kate continues to wear Alexander McQueen as she has found a designer with pieces that flatter her figure and reflect her personal style.
The royal often wears the designer for high-profile occasions, including Easter Sunday services, Princess Charlotte’s Christening and foreign tours to Australia and Canada.
She wore a McQueen coat for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last month and blue dress by the designer for Trooping the Colour last weekend.

‘When you find a designer and style that is flattering to you, it is easy to continue to with that,’ Miss White said. ‘The Duchess knows what works for her and I feel that this is a representation of her style.’
Similarly the Duchess of Sussex is likely to add more Givenchy pieces to her wardrobe.
Miss White said: ‘I feel that Givenchy is a good fit for Megan, due to their style and trends. They have a way of keeping things classic, and elegant but with a trendy edge.’
She added: ‘It’s a way to keep to her true style without compromising on her royal status.’
The ensemble also featured a belt branded with the Givenchy logo and a bag with the brand name printed on the front.

This is quite different to the Duchess of Cambridge’s personal style as she eschews any obvious branding.
Commenting on the choice to wear the logo, Miss White added: ‘It could mean a few things. Some people believe that anyone dropping a name or showing a brand name, could be trying to show wealth.
‘In Megan’s case I don’t think that is. She knows all eyes are on her and i think it could be a way to keep her relatable to her audience. It could be hard for someone like her to prove that she hasn’t lost who she is, this could of been a way for her to show the world that she is still a normal women, who likes designer clothes.’
