Designer of Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Gown Revealed?

David Cheskin - WPA Pool/Getty Images(LONDON) -- It has been the question on the tip of everyone's tongue since the royal engagement was announced – who will Kate Middleton wear when she walks down the aisle?

Now the designer of the dress of the year has been announced: Sarah Burton, of Alexander McQueen. Allegedly.

Though the princess-to-be is trying to keep the designer of her gown under a tight lid, London's Sunday Times reported Sunday that 36-year-old Burton has won the coveted job.

"A fashion source said that the dress will be a combination of Middleton's own design ideas and Burton's deep knowledge and understanding of high fashion," the Times reported. Burton, who took over as creative director at Alexander McQueen after the designer's tragic suicide in February last year, is no stranger to showing off her stunning work at high-profile events for world figures.

In the realm of U.K. royalty, she designed the off-the-shoulder gown worn by Sara Buys, bride of Tom Parker Bowles, son of Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Bowles. And more recently she was behind Michelle Obama's red gown worn at a January White House state dinner.

"I am not doing it," she said, when asked of her involvement with the gown.

Traditionally designers at royal weddings are sworn to secrecy about any involvement in the event, and Burton, in typical fashion, is denying any involvement.
