In the lead up to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding on 19 May at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, a photo of the bride-to-be's supposed first wedding dress is giving us a clue as to what kind of style the 36-year-old prefers.

And let's just say, we think she likes classic bridal chic.

For her first wedding to American film producer Trevor Engelson in Jamaica in 2011 (the pair later divorced in August 2013 citing 'irreconcilable differences'), the bride appeared to wear a strapless white gown, with a V-shaped cut out and embelished belt around the empire line.

The former Suits star accessorised her look with a simple gold bracelet and necklace while her iconic brown locks cascaded down one shoulder.

While it's yet to be revealed the exact style of wedding gown Prince Harry's fiancée will choose for the royal wedding (despite designs already having been leaked by Israeli designer Inbal Dror), the philanthropist has already opened up about her preferences when it comes to bridal wear.

'I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic, she admitted, according to People, when discussing her Suits character Rachel Zane's wedding dress in the series.

When previously asked about her favourite bridal brands, Markle once told Glamour that she loves Paris-based designer Delphine Manivet and newcomer Christos Costarellos, given 'their uniqueness and beauty'.

She also added that she'd 'always be a fan of couturier Elie Saab. J.Mendel is spectacular as well'.

Markle has also revealed the celebrity she'd dream of emulating for the aisle would be 'Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Everything goals.'

We can't wait to see her royal wedding dress!
