Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are Anna Wintour's 'dream' Met Gala couple

Anna Wintour has her sights set on royalty for a future Met Gala!

Ahead of next Monday's annual gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Today's Jenna Bush Hager chatted with the Vogue editor-in-chief about what guests she'd be excited to host.

"I would love to have the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge together," Wintour said of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. "That would be my dream couple."

"They could leave their husbands at home," she quipped of brothers Prince Harry and Prince William. "It’s the two of them I want."

Though neither of the duchesses has attended the gala yet, the iconic party is always graced by A-list celebrities and watched closely by adoring fans.

"I honestly believe the reason that people are excited is that it's this extraordinary marriage of fashion and culture," Wintour said of the gala, which has a strict no-selfie rule.

The longtime media maven also discussed this year's theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," and revealed that this year's carpet may be another color besides red to pay tribute to the topic.

"It is interesting when you say to people, 'Yes, the exhibition this year is going to be on "Camp,"' and you see the mind going and they're thinking hiking boots, backpacks, rope," Wintour said, before revealing what the theme, a nod to Susan Sontag's 1994 essay, "Notes on Camp," actually refers to.

"It's nothing about nature," she explained. "It's everything that's completely artificial and fake and not really what you think it means."

Fans will get their first peek at the stars' looks -- including those of this year's co-chairs, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Harry Styles  -- when the red carpet kicks off at 7 p.m. ET on Monday, May 6.
