Princess Diana‘s beautiful wedding dress will be displayed at Kensington Palace as part of a new exhibit. Prince Harry and Prince William have allowed their mother’s wedding dress to be unveiled for an exhibit called Royal Style in the Making. It will begin on June 3, 2021.
The toile from the 1937 coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth’s mother, the Queen Mother will be in the exhibit as well. The exhibition will showcase fashion designers and the royals over the years and show some incredible pieces.
Princess Diana’s wedding dress had the longest train in royal history
Matthew Storey, exhibition curator at Historic Royal Palaces said, “Our summer exhibition at Kensington Palace will shine a spotlight on some of the greatest talents of British design, whose work has been instrumental in shaping the visual identity of the royal family across the twentieth century.”
He continued, “We’ll be exploring how the partnership between each designer and client worked, and revealing the process behind the creation of a number of the most important couture commissions in royal history. While one of the highlights will undoubtedly be Diana, Princess of Wales’s show-stopping Emanuel designed wedding dress, which goes on show at the palace for the first time in 25 years – we’ve got some real surprises up our sleeve for fashion fans!”
Kensington Palace will share a special celebration for Princess Diana this year for what would have been her 60th birthday. Her birthday was on July 1st. Prince Harry and Prince William will reunite to pay tribute to their mother.
