Princess Diana’s Wedding Gown To Go On Display For The First Time In 25 Years

It’s been 40 years and there are people (aka my mother) who can still remember how gorgeous the late Princess Diana looked while walking down the aisle in her 25-foot long wedding gown. After all these years of seeing it through a screen, the iconic wedding dress will finally be on display to the public at London’s Kensington Palace for the first time in 25 years.

The wedding dress, which was designed by British fashion designers David and Elizabeth Emmanuel, will be featured as part of a new temporary exhibit to highlight historic royal fashion statements and their designers.

Back then, Diana’s wedding dress was treated as a well-guarded secret that will only be revealed to the world on her wedding day itself. In fact, the late princess was said to have prepared a spare wedding dress in case the current design was accidentally revealed before her big day.

The white lace gown, which features a scooped neckline, ruffled balloon sleeves with 10,000 pearls, and a 7.6-metre long sequin-encrusted train, is said to be worth $115,000 (RM471,000) and considered as the longest wedding dress ever worn by royalty.

Right now, the historic wedding dress is on loan from Diana’s sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, to be featured at the Historic Royal Palaces’ collection, titled “Royal Style in the Making”. The exhibit will run from 3 June 2021 to 2 January 2022.
