And in March, Ladbrokes announced it has pulled the plug on its bets too, amid speculation that the dress designer will be Ralph & Russo.
NBC Speculation is rife about who has made Meghan's dress ahead of the wedding - here she wears a gown in TV show Suits

Queen Victoria and the Orange Blossom Flower
Scottish Highlands, and of course, the by now obligatory myrtle. Waxen, orange flowers featured in the bridal wreath worn by Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863, a cutting of which was preserved by Queen Victoria in an envelope, which she autographed. Nor was this limited to Queen Victoria’s family of course – the bridal dress of Queen Marie Christine of Spain, also featured artificial orange blossoms, a sprig of which have been preserved in a gold box from her wedding day in 1879.Queen Victoria, wearing her simple wreath of orange blossom, and Prince Albert on their Wedding Day, 1840 (By Engraved by S Reynolds after F Lock [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)Orange blossom, like the myrtle, grew at Osborne House, the Royal Family’s private retreat on the Isle of Wight. The flowers, which Queen Victoria loved, were at their most fragrant in summer when the Royal Family preferred to stay there; the inner terrace where the Queen liked to breakfast, contained a pergola, heavy with orange blossoms and roses. Osborne’s rooms themselves included fresh bunches of the garden flowers, such as chrysanthemums, myrtle, veronica, daphnes and Malmaison roses (HRH The Duchess of York & Benita Stoney: Victoria & Albert, A Family Life at Osborne House, Pg 67, 1991). Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll – Queen Victoria’s fourth daughter and an exceptionally gifted artist – painted orange blossoms in watercolour for one of her albums; the subject appears to have appealed to Princess Louise, who painted them several times over.The orange blossom flower, was, however, also the subject of a gift from Prince Albert to Queen Victoria, on their sixth Wedding Anniversary, in 1846. It would come to form one of the most personal items of jewellery in the Queen’s collection and was one of profound, sentimental significance. This was not simply because of its romantic theme, but because it formed a small group of personal pieces of jewellery that the Queen ordered to be placed in the room in which Prince Albert had died at Windsor Castle in 1861 after her own death, so that they should remain where she wished them to be – and not given away.This was the suite or ‘parure’ of orange blossom jewellery, designed by Prince Albert for the Queen. It was added to from 1839-46 and came to include not only earrings but two brooches and a headdress, or wreath, no doubt to mirror the simple orange blossom bridal wreath which the Queen had worn on their wedding day and which she wears in the portrait painted later, by Franz Xavier Winterhalter, as a gift from her to Prince Albert on t...
