Now the public has a chance to see Princess Diana’s wedding dress.
The dress worn by Lady Diana Spencer at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981 went on public display on Thursday at Kensington Palace, Diana’s former home in London.
The taffeta-ruffled white dress, which was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, has a 25-foot sequin-encrusted train. MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY ONCE HINTED AT BABY GIRL NAMES THEY LIKE
Princess Diana’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, loaned her wedding dress for the “Royal Style in the Making” exhibition at Kensington Palace. The exhibition — which runs until Jan. 2, 2022 — also features sketches, photographs and gowns designed for the family’s three generations of royal women, including Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother. The exhibition was first announced in April, when Historic Royal Palaces curators posted about Princess Diana’s iconic gown on Instagram, Fox News reported at the time.
“This summer we’re welcoming you back to #KensingtonPalace in royal style,” Historic Royal Palaces curators captioned a video. “Step into the rarefied world of the atelier, and see the wedding dress of Diana, Princess of Wales up close as part of our new exhibition exploring the intimate relationship between fashion designer and royal client.”
