A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The Duchess is working on a stunning Jubilee wardrobe and word is that Sarah Burton has been over to Kensington Palace.

‘Some of Kate’s preferred designers have been given special places in the stands at the Platinum Pageant, but Alexander McQueen is rumoured to be her favourite.

‘Whether they are working on a dress for the balcony or for another event like the evening ball, or both, remains to be seen.’

Royal fashion collaborations are often shrouded in secrecy. 

Ms Burton’s work on the Duchess’s wedding dress in 2011 was so secret that it was smuggled into the Goring Hotel, where Kate spent her last night as a single woman, in pieces in unmarked boxes and assembled inside.

Kate’s stylist Natasha Archer declined to comment. 

Ms Burton did not respond.
