Burton wants to create royal maternity wear

Sarah Burton wants to design maternity wear for the Duchess of Cambridge.

Burton, who created the wedding dress for the duchess' nuptials to Prince William in April 2011, admitted that she hopes to be asked to create a new wardrobe for the royal, following the recent announcement she is expecting her first child.

Speaking after receiving the OBE for services to the British fashion industry during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony, Sarah, who is due to give birth to twins in February, said that she "hopes" she will be asked to design maternity clothes for Catherine.

The Alexander McQueen designer further explained that it was easy working on a wedding gown for the duchess, saying: ''She looked so beautiful, she's got such an amazing sense of grace and style, it was quite easy to make her look good.

''It was a real labour of love and a real collaboration, for me it was a huge highlight of my career.''

Sarah also praised the style of Prince Charles, who presented her with her honour, adding: ''I think he's got an amazing sense of style and has quite a history with Savile Row and has impeccable taste.''
