The fashion designer who created Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress was awarded an OBE at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
Kate‘s father-in-law Prince Charles shook Sarah Burton‘s hand as she received her accolade for services to the British fashion industry.
‘I’ve been given some amazing opportunities, and then having the honour of doing the wedding dress, that was a real honour,’ said Sarah.
‘It came completely out of the blue. I felt very privileged.’
