After uncovering the dress, post engagement, in a cupboard at her Mum's, she has a wonderful story to tell about the part she played in matchmaking the regal couple;
'I couldn't believe it when I heard William and Kate were getting married - I was so happy for them both. Then when I realised she would become Queen I started to appreciate the significance of it all.
The dress is a part of fashion history - the moment William could first have fallen in love with Kate - and that makes me really proud. I only made it as a skirt, but they pulled it up on Kate and she wore it as a dress. Maybe if it hadn't have been see-through, William might not have noticed her. I definitely think it has a played a part in the royal love story.'
Who says that the Royal family doesn't warm the cockles from time to time?
