Is Alice Temperley Creating Dress for Royal Wedding?

David Cheskin - WPA Pool/Getty Images(LONDON) -- A new fashion frenzy has broken out after Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa, and mother, Carole, were spotted at Alice Temperley's London boutique. The designer greeted them warmly and the two women spent several hours at the showroom, according to the Daily Mail. Now the British designer is the focus of fevered speculation that she's the one designing Pippa's maid-of-honor dress, and perhaps Kate's wedding dress.

"It's usually tradition that the bride will choose the same designer for the bridesmaid dresses," Lindka Cierach, Sarah Ferguson's wedding dress and bridesmaid dress designer, told ABC News.

Kate has worn Temperley before -- most notably in December 2010, just after she and Prince William announced their engagement. Kate turned up at a charity event wearing a black and white silk chiffon frock from the designer's 2009 collection, teamed with a black blazer.

Temperley has dressed a number of high-profile brides, including Milla Jovovich and Emilia Fox. The designer told Vogue UK she strives to "make the bride look beautiful, not to chase or create trends."

Who Will Dress Queen Elizabeth for the Royal Wedding?

John Stillwell - Pool/Getty Images(LONDON) -- The queen's favored in-house designer, Angela Kelly, is most likely going to be dressing her royal highness for the royal wedding, reports The Express.

Kelly, 58, had humble beginnings as the daughter of a Liverpool docker. But she is now considered one of the queen's closest confidants, holding the stately title of personal adviser and curator in jewelry, insignia, and wardrobe to her majesty, the Queen of England.

In this role, Kelly is designing two outfits for the queen's grandson's April 29 nuptials at Westminster Abbey. These outfits, along with a third commissioned outside the palace, will be laid out for the queen on the morning of April 29. Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth will then chose which one she prefers to wear, depending on the weather.

A royal source claims, "I would be amazed if she didn't wear an Angela Kelly outfit for the wedding. Although it will ultimately be the queen's choice, Angela has her ear."
