The Huffington Post's royal correspondent Yvonne Yorke gave herself a big pat on the back on Saturday and revealed that the designer behind princess-to-be Kate Middleton's wedding dress is Sophie Cranston of Libélula. Yorke writes: "I've been the first to report many exclusive details on the royal wedding, but the biggest scoop is undoubtedly the identity of Kate Middleton's wedding dress designer.
