Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton has finally broken her silence about the royal wedding dress that she designed for Kate Middleton. "It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it" she said today. Burton was spotted smoothing the Middleton's bridal train at Westminster Abbey this morning, confirming the rumours that Alexander McQueen was behind the dress. "It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created."

Burton added that she is "delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design, we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day."

Sarah, we couldn't agree more. See the dress up close in the gallery below, and find out more about the royal wedding dress details here.
