Kate Middleton visits royal wedding dress makers in secret to say thank you
The Duchess of Cambridge has shown her gratitude to the women who were tasked with embroidering her wedding dress, by visiting them in secret to say thank you.
Although Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen designed the dress, women who work at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace were asked to hand-stitch lace for the sleeves and bodice.
And it wasn't an easy job. The women were required to wash their hands every thirty minutes to ensure the lace was flawless. While the project was so secret that they had no clue that they were stitching the dress of the decade until just hours before the Royal Wedding last year.
The mammoth task didn't go unnoticed by Kate.
According to the Telegraph, the Duchess met the women in private at the college last week.
"Catherine was keen to express her gratitude in person to the women who worked so hard on her dress", a close friend told the newspaper.
"She was very conscious of the pressure that they were under."
