Sarah Burton gets OBE, hopes to dress Kate Middleton’s bump

After having what we assume was the best moment of her career last year when she designed Kate Middleton’s stunning wedding dress, Sarah Burton’s 2012 hasn’t been too shabby either.

Not only is she embarking on a new personal adventure (she is expecting twins!), her work at Alexander McQueen continues to be groundbreaking and inspired, and she just collected her OBE for services to the British fashion industry at Buckingham Palace as part of the Queen’s 2012 Birthday Honour’s List. Congrats, Sarah!

The designer received her award from Prince Charles, and the pair reportedly talked about Kate’s iconic wedding dress, while also sending her congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their baby news, saying “I’m over the moon for them.”

And when asked whether she would be making any maternity clothes for the expectant Royal mother Sarah reportedly laughed and said, “I hope I will be”. Watch this space!
