Ms Wickstead triggered the storm after she reportedly said: 'Her dress is identical to one of our dresses. Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, 'It's an Emilia Wickstead dress.'' She continued: 'Her dress is identical to one of our dresses.
Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, "It's an Emilia Wickstead dress.'" The designer then went on to have a bit of a dig at Meghan's look. She said: 'If you choose a simple design the fit should be perfect. Her wedding dress was quite loose.' And she didn't approve of the bride's relaxed hair style: 'I was like, 'Hold the wisps [of her hair] back — it's a Royal Wedding for God's sake.'

@kmcghee617b added: 'Emilia Wickstead is a very successful designer. She has dressed the Duchess of Cambridge on more than one occasion. It's a shame that she has elected this forum to voice her complaints concerning the dress origin. Why wouldn’t she have went straight to Givenchy?'
@MeadhbhMcGrath added: 'Deeply unprofessional comments from Emilia Wickstead on Meghan’s Givenchy gown! Will Kate Middleton sever ties with one of her favourite designers over this?'
