The results of the Post’s Royal Wedding Dress Contest were just announced, and while Helena, Mont., resident Becky Schupp snagged the top spot — congrats Becky! — props are also due to two locals who made it into the finals.

Annie Drury of Washington, D.C., ranked third place out of five top spots, while Jennifer Hart of Arlington received an honorable mention.

Schupp, Drury, Hart and 53 other readers submitted original sketch designs for the dress they’d like to see Kate Middleton wear for her wedding to Prince William.

“I think [Middleton’s] style is very young,” Schupp told The Post’s Autumn Brewington, but “definitely classic and clean. I wouldn’t say she’s a risk-taker, but she definitely has her own sense of style, what’s appropriate, [what] makes her look good.”
