OTRC: Kate Middleton chooses Alexander McQueen designer for dress, report says

A British newspaper reports that the designer of Kate Middleton's wedding dress has been chosen.

The Sunday Times said Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen fashion house has been chosen to design the royal wedding dress, but Burton and the company denied the claims, according to the Associated Press.

Fashion experts said the denial doesn't necessarily mean that it's not true because whoever had been chosen would be bound by the terms of the agreement to keep their role secret until Middleton walks down the aisle on April 29 at Westminster Abbey.

Since a designer is still unconfirmed, other designers that are in the running include, Bruce Oldfield, Philippa Lepley and Daniela Issa Helayel.

Royal officials recently launched a website for Prince William and his fianc?, promising to give details on the upcoming nuptials, including information on the dress. At the time of this post, the site did not include information on who would be the designer.

On Monday, new pictures of Kate Middleton as a little girl was posted on the website.

The Royal couple recently sent out the invitations to their highly anticipated wedding to around 1,900 guests.

The ceremony is set to begin at 11 a.m. (GMT) which is 6 a.m. (ET), according to the official Twitter account to Clarence House. The wedding reception will be held at Buckingham Palace.

Prince Harry will be the best man and Middleton's sister, Pippa, will be the maid of honor.
