Spotted outside Bruce Oldfield's shop...

Kate Middleton's mother and sister were photographed outside a London boutique of designer Bruce Oldfield last week, adding fuel to the speculation that the royal bride-to-be has chosen Oldfield to design her wedding gown.

According to the Daily Mail, Kate's mother, Carole, and sister, Pippa, spent an hour and a half at the store, where they were helped by Oldfield himself. The Middletons reportedly arrived after lunching at one of Princess Diana's favorite restaurants, San Lorenzo. The online article includes photos of Diana in gowns Oldfield designed for her.

It's possible, of course, that Oldfield is creating gowns for the Middletons for another occasion -- or that he's designing only Pippa and Carole's dresses for the April 29 wedding. Pippa is thought to be Kate's chief bridesmaid, or maid of honor.

The article notes that "St James's Palace is keeping tight-lipped on her dress choice, but a senior courtier told the Mail she finally reached a decision last week."

We're waiting for official word on that.
