Princess Diana’s Wedding Gown To Go On Display After 25 Years
The Royal family has always drawn a lot of attention from all across the world. While the other family members are still very prominent personalities, Princess Diana was a media darling. Her death was tragic news for all, and even after so many years of her passing away, her memories are still fresh in everyone’s mind. Now after 25 years, Princess Diana’s wedding gown will be put on display at Kensington Palace.
Princess Diana’s wedding gown, worn by her at her wedding in 1981, was created by designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel. The white gown had become the talk of the town, and people were starstruck seeing the princess in the attire. The ensemble still has a special place in public memory, and many are excited to see the wedding gown in person.
The website of Historic Royal Palaces states, “The dress, on loan from HRH The Duke of Cambridge and HRH Duke of Sussex, is now among the most famous in bridal history, and features a fitted bodice overlaid at the centre both front and back with panels of antique Carrickmacross lace that had originally belonged to Queen Mary, the groom’s great-grandmother.”
“Its gently scooped neckline and large puffed sleeves are trimmed with bows and deep ruffles of taffeta, a style popularized by the Princess in the early 1980s, while the full skirt is supported on a mountain of stiff net petticoats to create its famous silhouette,” they stated further adding details of her gorgeous dress.
Sky News reported that the gown will feature along with the 25ft train encrusted with sequins. Matthew Storey, exhibition curator at Historic Royal Palace revealed that the gown will “shine a spotlight on some of the greatest talents of British design whose work have been instrumental in shaping the visual identity”, adding that the outfit will be the chief attraction for several fans of Diana.
The exhibition will open on June 3. Their website also informs that the 1937 coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, will also be on display.
