Sarah Burton “hopes” she will be designing maternity clothes for Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge.

The creative director of Alexander McQueen was the designer behind the stunning dress Catherine Middleton wore at her wedding to Prince William.

The pretty royal announced she is pregnant with her first child last week and Sarah seemed hopeful when asked if she would be involved in producing custom-made maternity pieces.

“I hope I will be,” she answered after receiving an OBE for services to the British fashion industry.

The 37-year-old was presented with the honour yesterday during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.

After being handed the medal by the Prince of Wales, Sarah made it clear how touched she was by the gesture.

“I’m very, very humbled and it’s just a huge honour to be here – I’m very lucky,” she gushed.

The designer became creative director of the British label when designer Lee ‘Alexander’ McQueen passed away in 2010.

Sarah, who is currently expecting twins, spoke of her lengthy career and the exciting things she has been lucky enough to experience.

“I’ve been given some amazing opportunities – to work for someone as amazing as Lee and then having the honour of doing the wedding dress; that was a real honour,” she reflected.

Catherine’s lace dress was embroidered with delicate flowers and boasted an elaborate train. – COVER MEDIA
